M-16/M4 Clones

Colt Match Target HBAR MH6601   Colt M4 Carbine LE6920    Stag Arms 2R 

The M-16 and M-4 carbine are the next most common firearm after the various Kalishnikov variants.  The M-16/M-4 family is considered to be more accurate than the AK-47/AKM/AK-74 but it is not as reliable.  The M-16 round is also not as powerful as the standard AK-47 round but it is a reliable man-stopping round at urban combat ranges of 300 yards or less.  Also, the rifles accuracy, makes it possible to engage targets out to 600 yards.

The M-16/M-4/AR-15 Series of weapons was one of the first modular weapons systems.  It is possible to put upper receivers with different calibers and barrel lengths on a standard lower receiver, similarly buttstocks, forearms, and pistol grips can be easily exchanged. This type of gun was also the first to use rail systems to hold various combinations of scopes, sights, flashlights, lasers, bipods, and fore grips.  These rail systems are now seen on almost every tactical rifle.
