Pretty much everything you'd ever want to know about the manufacture of M-16s and M-4s

C.J. Chivers tells you all about it, in an update to the series he began late last year. Good pictures, too.


  1. I think you're more likely to have a rational discussion about abortion, taxes, or health care than about the M4/M16 issues. The comments at that link confirm this. Too many people have strongly held views with little to no basis in reality. It's like trying to talk a cult member out of a cult.

  2. Schmedlap -- Agree. I would've hoped that in a post specifically dedicated to the manufacture of these weapons rather than related performance issues, that could've been avoided. But like you said, the comments section says otherwise.
