What is the M4 Carbine?
« on: August 21, 2012, 05:22:49 PM »
The M4 carbine is a rifle tracing its evolution from the earlier carbine versions of the M16 (the current US military fully automatic rifle) all of which are based on the original AR-15 made by ArmaLite, designed by the found father AR 15. 

The M4 Carbine is a shorter and lighter version of the original AR15/M16.  All of these family of weapons have 80% commonality of parts.

The M4 Carbine is a gas-operated, air-cooled, magazine-fed, selective fire, shoulder-fired weapon with a telescoping stock.
