I know a AR-15 is the civilian version of the M4, I am wondering if one is better than the other? I found two that are the same as far as stocks, flash reducers, 16" barrel lengths, scopes, grips, both are semi-auto, etc. The only difference was that the M4 cost $50.00 more than the AR-15.

sounds like you're refering to a semi auto civvie M4 clone. if so, the M4 clone has a notch carved out of the barrel forward of the handguard to accomidate the mounting of an M203 grenade launcher. the regular 16 inch AR has a flat barel. true military M4s are select fire and have 14.5 inch threaded barrels with removable A2 flash hiders.

AR15 is the civilian version of the M16 real M4s cannot be had,do you mean a $50 difference between a rifle and a carbine?

yeah, same question...

How is an LEO6920HB referred to as an M4 Carbine? Is it not the same as an AR-15? Please clarify

Both are semi-auto, no way! I thought M-4's were straight pull rifles.
