M-16 rifles during Vietnam war who made them?

Lately I have been interested in the firearms shown in Tour Of Duty episodes and always thought that all M-16 rifles were made by Colt who bought the rights and ownership from Armalite and Eugene Stoner (who designed it). Apparently while Googling to learn more about the M-16 rifle it seems that Bushmaster also made them during the Vietnam war.
I would like to know the facts from members on here about what is correct. By the way what is the best M-16 rifle (or AR-15 rifle) to own today (as everyone makes it now)? as I am looking to purchase an AR-15. Thank you and TOD is one of my favorite shows of all times.
