to me they look the same...and do the same...I don`t know anything about carbines, rifles or machine guns..can you give me a help...wich is for military purposes...rapid fire, single fire..caliber.etc.-
That's a generalization. When people refer to the M16 they are generally talking about the military full auto or 3 round burst rifles, the AR15 is generally the semi auto version available for civilian sales. But to confuse things there are full auto versions of the AR-15 that were sold to civilians with the proper registration and paperwork prior to the ban on new manufacture and the full auto versions of the AR-15 are still available to Law Enforcement agencies.that`s what I thought...thanks vafish
I think I had heard that Bushmaster did this especially on CAR versions and shorter The Carbine and short barrel ARs because the gas port is so close to the chamber cycle extremely fast due to higher pressures in the gas system. By using the heavier m-16 bolt carrier they may be trying to slow down the cyclic rate to make the recoil less sharp.My bushmaster must have an M-16 bolt then...
