The main rival of the Kalashnikov rifle is the American M16

For a long time after the appearance of the M16 in service, it has been continuously improved. Some experts in the military, mostly Western, consider it a leader in the assault rifle segment.




The flaws manifested during the combat use of the M16 А1, led back in the 68 year to the approval of the ARSAP program in the United States. The program was designed to create a promising small arms. The main idea of ​​the program is the creation of the FRS infantry complex of the future. The complex should be able to fire in short bursts and have a grenade launcher. Only a decade later, this project, which was already part of another JSSAP program, was implemented in the modernized 16 А1 Е1 М. The rifle was named "M 855".



As a result of a complex test of small arms ammunition for the countries of the NATO bloc becomes 5.56х45. The cartridge is designed by the Belgian company FN. The cartridge was created for the Belgian FN Minimi light machine gun. The creation of the M16 A1 E1 rifle and the standardization of ammunition led to the required breakdown characteristics and created the prerequisites for the decision of the United States military to re-equip the army with a new rifle.

The company Colt, the creator of the upgraded rifle began rework weapons under the standard cartridge. The American name of the cartridge - 855 M. During the work, several options for upgrading have appeared:
- standard 701 model with fixed short bursts;
- Modernization with a heavy barrel, another name for an automatic machine gun, model 741;
- modernization under an automatic carbine, model 723, which had a mode of firing with fixed short bursts;
- Colt Commando, model 733, or M16 A2, American submachine gun.

The main rival of the Kalashnikov rifle is the American M16


In 81, the standard M16 A1 E1 rifle began to undergo a series of tests in the United States military. After successful tests in 82, the rifle enters the military under the name M 16 A2. The start of deliveries of the 16 A2 M to the units of the US Navy MP 84 year, to the land units of the US Army –85 year The use in the rifle of a new cartridge with a heavy bullet, required from designers to increase the slope of the rifling from 305 mm to 178 mm. The steepness led to an increase in the stress of the material of the trunk. During the modifications, the rifle barrel diameter increases, with it, the overall weight of the rifle increased by 170 grams. The range of the rifle with a cartridge 5.56x45 mm - 800 meters.

Rifles were produced in 2-x versions:
- with USM for conducting single and automatic fire;
- with USM for conducting single and fixed in three shots of fire.



The fixation mode is implemented using a new part in the trigger - ratchet. The latest version of the M16 A2 was delivered only to US MP units.
In the rifle reinforced receiver, on the right was mounted visor reflection sleeves forward. In the M16 A1 rifle, such a visor was included in the additional equipment and installed independently. The functions of the compensator, due to the lack of 2-x slots in its lower part, took over the flame arrester. The upper slits of the muzzle brake passed through a certain part of the powder gases. Gases, going up and to the right, compensated withdrawal of the weapon when firing up, and in addition reduced dust formation at removal of gases. These innovations were estimated by the United States infantrymen in the operations of the operation “Desert Storm”. Butt and forearm were made of polyamide with good thermal insulation characteristics. The two halves of the forearm, lower and upper, became completely interchangeable. Butt of a rifle in order to stabilize and hold weapons increased in area and extended by 1.5 centimeters. Has changed and pistol grip - changed the outlines of the details. There was a modified swivel under the belt, for carrying weapons in combat readiness. The barrel has a tide for docking the bayonet. Bayonet to M16 A2 - M9. Suitable for early M16 and M16 A1. Instead of metal shops, the 16 M А2 received light plastic shops for 30 ammunition.

In addition to improvements and successful innovations, М16 А2 also has several disadvantages:
- unreliable operation of the return spring;
- miniature drummer and pin;
- weapon sensitivity to pollution.

Opinions of American military specialists after using the rifle in the operations of the Persian Gulf - the rifle does not fully meet modern requirements for weapons of this class.

Interesting tests МХNUMX А16 and АК-2 passed in the Soviet Union:
- the recoil momentum of the American rifle is more by one third than that of the domestic AK-74;
- continuous shooting at AK-74 showed the best results;
- single shooting at M16 A2 is better;
- readiness for combat use in various conditions for AK-74 far exceeds the readiness of М16 А2.

Series production rifles M16 A2, M 16 A1 and M16 - 64-89 year. In the United States, the Colt Industries Corp Company carried out mass production. In 90, the development of the following modernization of the M 16 A3 began. At about the same time, the production of rifles was transferred to FN Manufacturing Inc. Rifle production at this company was cheaper for the United States Army - 420 vs. 455 dollars at Colt. At 97, more than 10 million units of the M16 rifle and its modifications were produced.

At present, the National Guard and reservists are armed with the M16 A2. In addition to the United States, the rifle is in service with Brazil, Canada and Fiji Islands. Modernization rifle, model 723 for some time been delivered in the UAE.

In addition to the listed modifications M 16 A2, there is such a modification as the model 635 - software "Colt-Commando". Developed in 82 year. Available to date. It is in service with a number of police formations, the protection of nuclear facilities, in parts of the US MP.

In 94, the United States Army entered into service new versions of the M16 rifle - M16 A4 and M 16 A3. The main differences from the M16 A2 - rifle is equipped with a "Picatinny rail" strap. In addition to all modern devices that are installed on the bar, it is possible to install a removable handle like the M16 А2.



Recently, American rifles are mainly equipped with small trijicon ACOG sights or Aimpoint, EOTech collimator sights. USM M16 A3 provides two firing modes - automatic and single. M16 A4 can engage in fixed fire in short bursts.

On these rifles used a new system RIS - handguard with the upper and lower guide. On the lower bar mount grenade M203.
In the 94, the carbine is adopted, the 720 model using the 5.56x45 mm cartridge. It is designated as M4. In addition to the army, the M4 comes into service in the special operations of the United States. Soon these weapons arm the officers of the army, the composition of military vehicles, military units of the rear units. The weapon is still in service.

In the 96 year, taking the 16 А3 base for М, they create another М4 А1 carbine. It gives the weapon a mode of using short bursts. Especially for the special forces of the United States Navy - sea seals, developed on the basis of the M4 A1 - carbine Mk.18 Mod. 0 Close Quarters Battle Rifle (CQBR). The carabiner has a shortened barrel -254 mm. The rifling of the weapon barrel is changed from 178 mm to 262 mm. Installation of equipment for flameless and silent firing is possible on the combined muzzle brake-flame arrester.

The experience of using the M2002 A10 and M4 carbines in combat operations in Afghanistan 1-4 brought them unflattering evaluations. The main drawback remained - sensitivity to pollution. But this only led to the fact that they began to clean these weapons in combat units, almost daily. Rubbed also cartridges for carbines. The well-known principle of the American military - even if the weapon is lined up just once, clean it and prepare it for a new use.

In addition to sensitivity to pollution, other shortcomings were revealed against the background of the same M16 A2:
- reduced barrel reduced the initial speed of the bullet;
- decreased range of sighting efficiency;
- overheating of the forearm and barrel with intensive shooting;
- increased wear of the main parts;
- The overall reliability of the system has decreased.



But these shortcomings did not deter the US military, weapons are very popular in the armed forces of the United States. Designers are still developing various projects for upgrading the base M16. In addition to the development of weapons, surveys are being conducted on new types of ammunition for them.
In the meantime, the rifle in all its modifications is the main armament of infantry units not only of the United States, but also of many states of the modern world.

In general, the “black rifle” turned out to be a rather successful model of personal armament of military units.

    One thing was always incomprehensible to me. We compare m-16 and AK. But only we forget that our AK as it was from the 70s, it remains, and the M-16 line has been upgraded a bunch of times. And besides her there is still a lot of things in service. Maybe it's time to compare with their latest samples?
    Although I will immediately refute the suspicion that I am entirely for the west. Personally, I would choose AK, because with its level of knowledge any other barrel would be destroyed very quickly.

      In 94, the United States Army entered service with new modifications of the M16 rifle - the M16 A4 and the M 16 A3. The main differences from the M16 A2 - the rifle is equipped with a Picatinny rail.

      And the shooting characteristics of A3 and A4 began to differ sharply from A2.

    M16 is lightweight, convenient, BUT 5 photos on top, / on the backpack / above the thumb there is such a pimp, it is used for a delay, push it with your finger, the moving parts of the automation have come, and everything is fine, the AK works with a large margin of capacity / automation / and certainly more reliable

        No, the little one exists initially for forcing the shutter when it is skewed. It costs like a ratchet mechanism. That is, this feature (reliability) of this unit was immediately known. As I expressed my opinion above, I would take AK, not so convenient, not so beautiful (by the way it tastes) but very reliable, which is what you need in battle.

    What is there to compare? Life itself has long compared everything for us. "Kalash", and all kinds of its models of various industries, more than half the world has been fighting for a decade. And where is the M-16 on this list? Ahhhh ... far behind !!!
    So, do not compare the incomparable.
    AK is a weapon of war !!!
    M-16 - "parquet jeep" and no more.
    Soviet is the best !!!

    reliability, simplicity and quality of Kalash make it more effective time to that witness Kalash everything that can be swum, shot and passed unlike the M-16 M-17 M-3019 or even if you don’t call him crack, but AK is better and easier to use very in Vietnam, the Pindos loved their M-16s to exchange with our Kalash as one of the examples, and it was not just that the whole world was holding it in their hands in Small Arms; the old school had done far smile

    the “pimpochka” is a small “ratchet” mechanism, the translational movement is approx. 0,5 cm, there is no more movement, you need to press again and again, when the shutter is not fully closed, the cartridge will be sent / there is a meager distance / not it, but the shutter with the shutter frame, and pushes the patorn
    most likely we are talking about different things, / teachers at the university strongly spoke about this cost-specific feature, and when disassembling everything is clear,
    there are six or seven combat ledges on the shutter, there are two of them in the AK, so the shutter speed of the BB M16 is small

    Guys! Once, in a special report from the American aircraft carrier during the destruction of Iraq, our correspondent witnessed the training of the U.S. naval infantry and filmed everything on camera. So, under ideal conditions for firing at a target, two fighters jammed the M-16. And this report saw the whole world. And in a behind-the-scenes conversation, all the marines, upon arrival at the places of deployment, wanted to buy only Kalashi for a real battle. Here is the reality of the battle and revealed all the advantages. Needless to say more ?.

      I agree 100%. If I were offered Kalash (or his descendant) and Emochka, then I would choose Kalash. And whatever they say to me about super bells and whistles, but I would still take Kalash. Reliability, simplicity, efficiency, power - these are the distinguishing features of this weapon.
      But the truth is laid out in a playful form about the AK and M-16))

    The last phrase touched - the main thing is flexibility! Well, why is there such a flexible M-16?
    Whatever the campaign, so dissatisfied reviews - but still, a miracle weapon ...
    In the spacecraft, as well as later in the SA, very often the most common way to clean weapons was to simply shoot somewhere, even to the ground, and everything is fine again, and then, after each shot, kick in? Type of cat's favorite pastime in his spare time?

    By the way, the AK-74 was modernized in 1990. It became known as AK74M, replaced four modifications AK74, AKS74, AK74N and AKS74N. The AK74M received a new design flame arrester, a polyamide forend, a polyamide folding stock, a dovetail mount for sights, an updated bayonet knife, a new GP30 grenade launcher, instead of the GP25. Until now, only a modernized machine was produced. The Cobra collimator sight was also developed for the AK74M; it entered the troops in small quantities. This modernization can safely be equated with the modernization of the M16A2-A3.

    Compare AK47 and M16, it’s all the same something to compare the king (small arms) with some kind of dude, both of these automatic rifles appeared during the Cold War and M16 was only the politically-systemic competitor AK47 and no more. AK47 is the smallest small arms in the world (legend, king, guard and avenger), this weapon reigns on the battlefield, and in strong hands this weapon is worse than death, and this inspires respect and reverence for AK47.

    The only plus of the M16 is the installation of all kinds of stray devices (Ltsu, a flashlight, a bunch of sights, bipods, a tactical grip, etc.), but that was earlier, since the M-16 (M-4), that the AK-74 were equal on the hinged, the only minus is that there are few collimators for AK in the world and in optics we are very far behind ...

    Generally not a competitor!
    Somewhere on the streets of Toronto, for policemen in an urban setting, it is probably better to find the M-16 difficult. This weapon requires, first of all, good, competent service.
    For combat conditions in the mountains, in the mud, in the cold and lack of lubrication, of course it will be difficult to surpass the AK.

    M 16, like the AK, are completely satisfied with the armies they are armed with, otherwise they would have been replaced. For example, AK, with its simplicity and reliability, is completely satisfied with the RA in view of not only the tasks it is currently solving, but also the organization of the RA as a whole. Whatever they say, but our millionth army consists of conscripts. What is conscript? This is in most cases a conscription person who is serving his number. (The soldier is sleeping. The service is on.) Therefore, AK is an ideal weapon for conscripts and partisans who need a "piece of wood and a belt" in order not to break something or unscrew it, and the commanders are calmer. Unlike professionals for whom war is work. Yes, there are real professionals in our army, but in terms of the total number there are very few of them, and therefore they unfortunately do not make weather.

    Comparison of AK and M16 is not in favor of the latter, but it is AK and M16, Pindos gunsmiths do not stand still, they are constantly upgrading their weapons, and not only that, they are still being supplied to the troops. and already the army in the course of use issues claims, and again improvement and modernization and, at the same time, delivery to the army for testing completely new types of small arms. and what do we have? for 10 years already they have been hiding the topic of rearmament, but for what, who held the new in their hands, who ran along the mountains with him. none. they will give out another masterpiece, which thread lompassnik will hit the target 3 times and all weapons are accepted, and then the tormentor will suffer. and it touches me that AK can not be cleaned. what's wrong with cleaning weapons? after hunting, I always clean my trunk. cleaning weapons is one of the components of army discipline. and we have sloppiness. no one is talking about a new and high-quality ammunition, he would at times improve the characteristics of the AK.

    When developing AK, the main thing was reliability, like everything that was in the USSR, the Pendos had the main accuracy and lightness, and about the capriciousness, the kernel wrote that the weapon should be cleaned and by the way, this weapon is already dinosaurs. After all, aek and anacaban were never taken

    M-16 for aesthetes, Ak is generally for everyone, reliable, but not accurate, + Amers constantly come up with something new, soon SCAR will be possible, but AK lacks “lotions” that improve life, although those who are right above are right, our army is fucking not necessary, for in it serve as in the 19th century "peasants" who are obliged

    As for the inaccuracy of the AK, I don’t know. I shot from the age of 16, the first 7,62 mm school military training exercise 1US, if you don’t have trembling hands, you will hit. In the AKC army 74 M shot quite a few records for the same exercise, spent 6 rounds on three targets. Here they show that M 16 is a good grouping. But the trick is that one bullet can hit the enemy and dispersion (within normal limits) when firing in bursts can give greater accuracy than a heapier weapon (if missed, everything is in milk ) My opinion is that with the modern M 16, the only advantage is the effective firing range, which is 200 meters more than the AK's ammunition is better, after all, 5,56 mm is not 5,45 mm

    people what are you arguing cite brief extracts from the same wikipedia
    : 7,62 mm automatic Kalashnikov [4] (AK, GAU index - 56-A-212, often incorrectly (Note 3) are called AK-47) - machine, developed by Mikhail Kalashnikov in 1947 and adopted by the Soviet Army in 1949.
    M16 (official designation is Rifle, Caliber 5.56 mm, M16) - American automatic rifle 5,56 mm caliber, developed on the basis of the AR-10 rifle and adopted in the 1960s.
    and now I’ll summarize: AK is an automatic rifle, M16 is an automatic rifle !!! Is there anything to argue about these different weapons

    I don’t remember which of the Green Berets said something like this:
    "In a firefight with the Vietnamese, we tried as soon as possible to kill one of them and pick up the AK-47. Then the battle was fought with this trophy."
    During army tests, the AK-47 was buried in sand, lowered into the water for 7 days - after extraction - firing was carried out.
    And about modernization and various lotions, only the imperfect is improved.
    Compare the number of modifications M-16 and AK-47.
    And lastly - even for the incomplete disassembly of the M-16, a screwdriver is needed.

    The main rival of the Kalashnikov assault rifle is the leadership of the Russian Ministry of Defense. We decided to determine the parasites in the warehouse, to the three-ruler.

    No matter what they say about the ancient Kalash in the army - so what I will say - I live right next to a part of the RCBM, and I quite often see soldiers with the AK74M - the most recent modernization of the AK-74. And you should also remember that the AK- 12.

    In general, the “black rifle” turned out to be a rather successful model of personal armament of military units.
    That's right, quite successful, and Kalash is the best.
