Sorry if this a dupe. But I can't seem to use the search in here. Was wondering what the differences are between the M-16 and M-4 besides the barrel length?

Barrel length, buttstock, all M4s except the very early ones are flat-top while only the M16A4 is a flat-top.

Most M4 are full auto, the M16 is 3 shot burst, and the M4 has the notch in the barrel for the m203 grenade launcher. The M4 also has fatter oval shaped handgaurds.

Burst and auto have nothing to do with M4 vs M16. M4A1, M16, M16A1 and M16A3 are all auto. M4, M16A2 and M16A4 are burst.
