M4A1 – Assault Rifles
The M4A1, also known as the M4 Carbine, is a shortened and lightened variant of the infamous M16A2 allowing it to operate much more efficiently in close quarters combat. Unlike the M4, the M4A1 has fully automatic firing capability while the former only allows three-round burst and semi-automatic firing.
The M4A1 / M4 Carbine is one of the most used and favoured assault rifles in the U.S military and is gradually replacing the M16 rifle for the US Army.
Summary: While not the best Assault Rifle for long-range combat, the M4A1 is more than ideal in close and mid range combat. It is very popular due to it's balanced nature and is often seen as a 'jack-of-all-trades'. Highly recommended.
