The closest thing to the current-issue M16A2 would be a pre-ban Bushmaster with 20" A2-profile barrel, or a Colt Government Model. -Troy

when i enlisted in '87,we trained with the colt ar15/m16A1,7.62x56.i saw it every time i held my weapon.they were the same weapons they trained on prior to going to vietnam.when they were issued their weapons to use in the field, they were issued the .223-(5.56)why they would train someone on a .30 cal. weapon,then send them into the field with a .22 is beyond me.

I am going to have to call the bullshit on you guys who claim 7.62x56.You got a lot of evidence gathering and proving to do!

I agree. 7.62x56 would be some of the wall cartridge. It would fit between the .308 (7.62x51) and 30-06 (7.62x63[or 64]) and wouldn't fit the AR10 mag./receiver, let alone the AR15/M16.

I have seen AR10's and many other military rifles chambered for T-65, which is a 7.62 variant.

But no AR10 or AR15 mag well will hold a 308 with a 56 mm case.The T65 was never that long I believe parrish is incorrect or pulling someone's leg
