M16 / AR15
This rifle was one of the first of the modern 5.56mm calibre rifles to be used in action. Introduced during the Vietnam War it became an instantly recognisable weapon. M16 rifles are used by many military groups, most notably the SAS, who preferred the M16 over the standard British issue L85A1-SA80 rifle.
The semi-automatic version of this which we use on our shooting events in Prague is known as the AR15 and comes in both the lower recoiling 9mm parabellum calibre and the traditional 5.56mm x 45mm NATO calibre.
- Weight: 3.40 kg (empty)
