Default Flat top M16 in 1967? (not the Model 656)

Was looking into the weapons used by SOG after a discussion with someone about the latest CoD and after seeing a mention (but no shown proof) of a flat top M16-based sniper rifle with an M84 scope from an M1 Garand sniper rifle being used during one single operation in early 1967, I did some looking around and found this picture.

It certainly matches the description I read. Anyone know anything about this particular rifle?
"The gun has played a critical role in history. An invention which has been praised and denounced... served hero and villain alike... and carries with it moral responsibility. To understand the gun is to better understand history."

“What is morality in any given time or place? It is what the majority then and there happen to like, and immorality is what they dislike.” - Alfred North Whitehead
