More Information *


The M16 is a lightweight, 5.56 mm caliber, air-cooled, gas-operated, magazine-fed rifle, with a rotating bolt, actuated by direct impingement gas operation. It is constructed of steel, aluminum and composite plastics.

There have been three main iterations of the M16. The first was M16 and M16A1 models, fielded in the 1960s that fired a U.S. M193/M196 round that could fire either semi- or fully-automatically. The second was the M16A2, which entered service in the 1980s and fires the Belgian-designed M855/M856 rounds (adopted at that time as the new 5.56 x 45 mm NATO standard round). The M16A2 can fire either semi-automatic or bursts of up to three rounds. Mode of fire is determined by using a selector switch on the side of the weapon. Finally, the M16A4 became standard issue for the United States Marine Corps during Operation Iraqi Freedom, increasingly replacing the earlier M16A2. In the United States Army, a combination of the M16A4 and M4 Carbine continue to replace existing M16A2s. The M16A4 features a handguard with four Picatinny rails for mounting optical sights, laser pointers, night vision, forward handgrips and flashlights.

The Superior AR15


I owned my first one when I was 14. I now own six in different sizes and calibers. I've been carrying the rifle for many years now in the service with the U.S. Army, a good portion of which was in the combat zone of Iraq.

Throughout all this time, the countless hours at the range and the fierce firefights in the streets of Baghdad, I consider it to be the best rifle on the market. It is a symbol of American freedom and liberties. It is battle proven and ready for the tasks that the future has in store for it. When the U.S. military replaces this rifle/carbine it will be a sad day for us all.
