    I’m trying to build an Iraq War rifle clone, but I don’t know if I should do an M16A4 or an M4 carbine. An M4 would be easier to build and more comfortable for me, but I really wanna stay accurate to history. M4s were used in Iraq, but you see the M16 much more often in footage. Help?

    If you don’t have an AR yet then go with what you are most comfortable with.

    If this is your 8th gun that will stay in a safe for 50 years then go with a M16A4 build.

    M16A4, I’d say. Do the carrying handle iron sights with the broomstick vertical grip. Can’t go wrong with an A4.

    If you only want one I can say I shoot my M4 more than my A4, but if you already have a bunch of 14.5”/16” rifles maybe skip the M4.

    Both were used in high numbers, just depends on what branch you are looking at. Early war marine footage will be covered in A4s.
