I'd take that list with (more than) a grain of salt. They've got Hong Kong listed on there. How many M4/16's do you think the ChiComs are ordering from Colt? Or FN for that matter. I'd bet that if anybody, from anywhere orders [b]ONE[/b] rifle or carbine from a government outside the U.S, that country gets on the list. It would be good to know how many countries issue M4/16's to the everyday grunt. Prolly not more than a handful.

They may have in the past. I've seen photos of their police with them. I'll see if I can find a picture.

I can vouch that they are the standard issue rifle to Kuwait (M16A2 primary) and Jordan (M16A1, M16A3s)

For some reason, I don't think that NORTH Korea uses the M16 family of arms. Vulcan94

Canada, The Netherlands and Denmark all use the C7 / C8 series as regular issue. Not on any list so far, the "VFB" or Federation side of the Bosnian army use the M-16 (A1 I believe).

I have to agree with Vulcan. That list is BS. It is probably safe to assume that those commies in N Korea probably use the Kalashnikov family of arms.
