M16E1 Graphic Training Aid (GTA), dated February 1967: An original Vietnam-era GTA in overall great shape considering it’s age
and use (has a few minor taped tears). This is a large format - 33”H x 42”W - set of 15 full-color illustrated
posters arranged flip-chart style
for classroom training. Covers all the basic terminology, parts and functions
of an M16, including several pages detailing the full-auto components.
What’s really unique about this particular item is the date: Feb 1967 – that’s the same month/year the US Army
officially adopted the M16E1 and changed the name to the M16A1, so this GTA was definitely the last printing of
its kind to feature the “experimental” E1 designation. Most of these likely got tossed when the new “A1” GTA's were
printed/distributed. I’ve never seen another one like this in any condition - definitely a unique & rare piece
of US military history … plus it still makes a great training aid!
$180 shipped to CONUS (no int'l sales/shipments). USPS money order only, sorry no Paypal. First "I'll take it" PM gets dibbs.
