Excerpt: The M16 (more formally Rifle, Caliber 5.56mm, M16) is the United States Military designation for the AR-15 rifle. Colt purchased the rights to the AR-15 from ArmaLite and currently uses that designation only for semi-automatic versions of the rifle. The M16 fires the 5.56x45mm cartridge. The M16 entered United States Army service and was deployed for jungle warfare operations in South Vietnam in 1963, becoming the U.S. Military's standard service rifle of the Vietnam War by 1969, replacing the M14 rifle in that role. The U.S. Army retained the M14 in CONUS, Europe, and South Korea until 1970. Since the Vietnam War, the M16 rifle family has been the primary service rifle of the U.S. Military. The M16 has been widely adopted by militaries around the world. Total worldwide production of M16-style weapons since the design's inception has been approximately 8 million, making it the most produced firearm of its caliber. The M16 is being phased out in the United States Army and being replaced by the M4 carbine, which is itself a shortened derivative of the M16A2, as of 2010. M16 replacement by the Individual Carbine could come in 2014 if procurement is attained. The M16 is a lightweight, 5.56mm, air-cooled, gas-operated, magazine-fed assault rifle, with a rotating bolt, actuated by direct impingement gas operation. The rifle is made of steel, 7075 aluminum alloy, composite plastics and polym.. Price: $19.99
