The M16/M4 series of rifles and carbines are the US Military versions of the AR15 series of firearms. They fire the 5.56x45mm NATO cartridge from detachable box magazines. They were initially developed in the early 1960s for jungle warfare in South Vietnam, becoming the primary service rifle of the US military by 1969. Since then, the M16 has seen many improvements, from the M16A2, M16A3 up to the current M16A4. Many countries have adopted the design as well.
This Classic Army version features a glass fibre reinforce stock, grip and fore end, metal body, metal outer barrel and metal detachable carry handle. This is a great, solid representation of the traditional M16 style combat rifle, suitable for players looking for an infantry style gun, or as a base for a full custom project to suit the individual player’s mission parameters.
