What the heck is the difference between a carbine and a non-carbine AR15??? I feel like a retard for not knowing this. I've asked 3 different gun friends and got three different answers.

"carbine" usually just means a shorter version of the original rifle. In this case, the original is a 20" and the carbine is the 16" or shorter.
