M16 Rifle

The M16 rifle is one of the most popular firearms in the world today.  Derived from the AR-15 rifle, the M-16 provides selectable firing in automatic or semi-automatic modes and has been widely issued to military forces since the 1960's.  Many versions of the M16 have been developed, to meet the needs of military and armed forces that prefer the M-16 rifle for it's lightweight, accuracy and potent, high velocity 5.56 mm ammunition.

M16 Rifle The M16 first saw military action with the US Army as the primary service weapon of ground forces.  After successful service, the US Marine Corps requested several design elements for their own use; preferring to use the M-16 rifle platform as the firearm of choice.  Later versions were also developed that included more significant changes.  One of these versions became known as the M4 carbine.

After over 40 years of military service, the M-16 rifle, including all versions, has proven to be one of the most significant firearms of modern times.  Today, the M16  in it's newest versions, is the primary rifle of the US Navy, US Coast Guard, US Air Force, and is used in large numbers by the US Army and United States Marine Corps.
