M16! Well the CA M15A1 (Which is actually based off of the XM16E1, the experimental version of the M16) You can see her bottom right of the first picture.

Certainly looks the part 👍  Any pics wearing it?

If you're that dedicated to the loadout maybe consider a GBB m16a1.  That really feels good 😍

Now is not the time of course as deliveries are very disrupted

Only really practical in true sims as the small mags only hold 20rds while full size hold 30rds.  You can get an 80rnd double mag

They look really good, I did debate on it. But it was the price & alleged leaky mags that drove me away.

I've not had a problem with leaking (yet). Valves and seals are replaceable so would only cost a few quid to fix.

The mags are a hefty expense if you want to skirmish as you'd need seven or more.

I only use mine in the garden at the moment.
