M16 Family by avitar270 M16 Family by avitar270
M16 (more formally Rifle, Caliber 5.56 mm, M16) is the U.S. military designation for a family of rifles derived from the ArmaLite AR-15 and further developed by Colt starting in the mid-20th century.

The M16 is a lightweight, 5.56 mm caliber, air-cooled, gas-operated, magazine-fed assault rifle, with a rotating bolt, actuated by direct impingement gas operation. The rifle is made of steel, aluminum, and composite plastics.

The M16 rifle family including the M16/A1/A2/A3/A4 has been the primary infantry rifle of the United States military since the 1960s. With its variants, it has been in use by 15 NATO countries, and is the most produced firearm in its caliber. The M16 entered Army service in 1964.
M16A1, M16A2, M4, M16A4, from top to bottom.

I think the one on the bottom is an M16 A3 because it has the fixed front sight assembly. The A4 series has a gas block without a fixed sight.

Really? Because last time I checked, the AR-15 is select fire: 3-round burst or single shot.
