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.)
