The M16A2 rifle is a lightweight, air-cooled, gas-operated, magazine-fed, shoulder- or hip-fired weapon designed for either automatic or semiautomatic fire through the use of a selector lever.


The M16-A2 was known for its reliability and accuracy. It was made famous by U.S. troops during World War II and in Vietnam, it is also a favorite of many SWAT teams.


This is a replica of the M16A2 rifle. It is 39 1/2 inches overall. It is full sized but only weighs a fraction of the original.


This replica is made with ABS plastic and metal parts. The bolt functions just like the original. It also has a detachable 20 round magazine. It is so realistic, it is easily mistaken as real. Yet, it is more durable and lightweight than the original, which makes this rifle perfect for stage and screen use.



red added by me. I also didn't copy over the pic.



Hope you guys enjoy that.

not only is their history wrong, that "firearm" isn't even an A2

Yeah, I remember seeing them when I was at Normandy.

I like the three prong supressor on their A2.....

Oh, and the A1 rear sight and lack of brass deflector hump....

Come on, now... everyone knows that the "16" in M16 means it was developed in 1916. Thus, the M14 was developed in 1914, the M1 in 1901, etc.

ETA: They also have a WWII version of the M92. Link

It is a good thing too, else the aircraft industry would have never been able to use rifle aluminum in the B-29 for example.

Actually, it looks like they took the photo of their "M-16" model, and photoshopped in some A2 handguards....

WTH, at least they have it up there. A paper out here had a nice tribute to WWII vets, who they said were in "The War To End All Wars."

I guess it wasn't used in Korea for some reason

I sure I read they also used them at Belleau Wood



No, you're thinking of the original early Armalite AR15's. It's a common point of confusion, happens all of the time.
Link Posted: 8/8/2005 12:23:04 PM EDT
What? No mention of its extensive service in Korea? How about in The Great War?

Come to think of it, didn't Patton carry two Ivory handled Berrettas?

There will be people out there that will beleive it. It sounds like someone from the Brady Bunch wrote the add.


On another note, I think it was the M16A1 that was in WWII, and the A2 in Nam. I remember them during the battle for Camphofinque in '67.

Now how am I suposed to trust their stories on the rest of their crap? Is it a Celtic battle ax or something Rolf the Germanic peasant used to cut firewood? The circle of trust is broken.

ETA: Anyone want to volenteer to call them and let them know of their ignorance?

We used the A1 in WWI, then switched to the A2 just in time for WWII!

They were also sometimes mounted in tandem, on top of the upper wing of Sopwith Camels flown by the RAF during the French and Indian War.

It's not a weapons site, it's a site that sells cheap crap to hang on the wall, ostensibly, for decoration.
