Operator Notes:

Arguably the best assault rifle in the world. Extremely accurate and reliable. Very popular among US troops. The A1 version instituted a number of new features to the basic M16 including a forward assist to ensure bullet chambering. This version (the A1) used by the SOF team has been improved to the A2 version. Benny Ray has been trying to acquire some M16A2s and some M4A1s for use by the team. Until that day arrives, the M16A1 fills in nicely. British SAS often use the M16A2 instead of the standard British SA-80 assault rifle. The M16A1 is a very ergonomic weapon. All manual controls are right at the fingertips of the operator. Selector switch, magazine release, bolt release are the most easily controlled of any assault rifle. This is probably the easiest and quickest weapon to do magazine changes on. One minor problem, there are no left handed versions so leftys require more training and adaptation. Relatively controllable on full automatic but professionals keep it on semi-auto unless on ambush, delivering suppressive fire, or at very close range. This weapon can also be fitted with the underbarrel 40mm M203 grenade launcher. One note though - a new 5.56mm round was developed for the M16A2 (800 series ammo). It is slightly heavier than the M16A1 round and is not suitable for firing out of the A1 rifle. It keyholes and tumbles at about 25 meters because the barrel rifling ratio twist is too low for the heavier bullet.
