That flash suppressor kinda looks like the HK suppressor on the G36 with its four open ended prongs. Wouldn't that be disadvantageous in a jungle environment...like the 3-prong flash suppressors on the early M16's in Vietnam.

That would be one of the first times seeing a vortex flame supressor on an M4 on Gov. issue.

Cool camo on the M4's. But since they camo'd the entire gun, don't you figure they would camo the inside of the scope cover? Same with the inside of the ejection port cover. I know there is only so much you can do, but why leave those out. Then again, maybe it really doesn't matter at 50 yards and is not really needed. Thanks for the photos.
