    1st review

    This semi-automatic high maintenance rifle does the job. Make sure it's well lubricated before use, or it will tend to jam frequently. The shorter barrel doesn't allow for long range engagement, however, the compactness is great for urban or emergency response use. The rail system is pretty nifty, allowing for almost an endless combination of accessories.

    I lvoe my M4, I also have the M203 Gernade attachment as well. I have never had it jam, and the parts are easy to replace if in a crunch. It is the MP choice weapon as well as Infantry, due to the collapsable but stock for building and room clearing. WIth the burst selection, you can laydown a continous fire while putting the steel where it counts.

    I bought an M4 due to the workmanship and relability of the M16 I carried in the Army. I could have gotten cheaper, but Colt was the only way I wanted to go. This should be issued to all certified LEOs for a little extra at work.

    Extremely accurate, versatile, and deadly. Like the M-16, it's very finicky so be aware of that prior to taking one to the field. If well-cared for, this weapon will serve you well time and time again. The length makes it great for urban fighting and tight spots (hallways, choked streets, etc), yet will still be accurate to several hundred meters.

    Great multi-purpose weapon. Working in a rural environment there are many tactical and officer safety considerations that need to be considered. Having the ability to use this in a rural setting and also having the ability to adapt to a city environment by changing ammo is a great tool to have!

    Bushmaster is strong competition, but Colt is good. I had the opportunity of carrying the M-16 daily for more than a year. The M4A1 is an upgrade, and the carbine size is handy for short to medium range engagement. It is ideal for clearing buildings, and with the right ammo can actually penetrate less wall layers than police-duty handguns.

    Keep it clean and don't let the carbon build up on the gas port. That may not be as necessary today as it used to be, but I did have a jam during a fire-fight. Fortunately, my brothers "take care of their own," and laid down enough fire to mask the malfunction I had.

    It's ability to be completely modular is very useful - I love mine - however, just because it is good, does not mean that it can not be out-classed, by less expensive, even more reliable rifles. The AK-47 comes to mind, and, the AK can be every bit as modular as the AR-15 for half the cost. All in all, the M4A1 is a handy, accurate rifle, but it could benefit from new internal designs. Bushmaster seems to have a new version of the old gas system, a piston inside the gas tube. I enough fun disassembling my upper to clean out the gas tube let alone a piston to worry about - I think it just adds more to the process of maintaining and that's a bad idea. The easier, the better, which is what good designs are made of - like the AK. Still love my kitty-kat and M4A3, though.

    I personally like the rifle, it's alot easier to use and move with than the M16. However it doesn't do too well in sandy areas or when fired in automatic for long periods of time. Other than that I like the weapon and it has alot of attachments and modifications avalible.

    No other weapon carries the accuracy, capacity, and daunting aura than the M4. An officer with an M4 slung over their shoulder can create havoc on armed criminals. With the proper light system, the M4 can be easily deployed in everyday versus extreme situations. A must have for any beat officer/swat/entry team member.

    I love this weapon!!! The rail systems allow you to have an endless amount of accessories to add to the weapon. The adjustable stock allows you to quickly make the M-4 a close quartercombat weapon when needed and you can lengthen the stock to your preference for distance shooting. It is high maintenence, but once you get used to taking care of your weapon it takes no time to do. This weapon is superior to the M-16, and the M-4 definetly saved my butt several times in the desert.

    For the price there are few weapons systems that work as well as this rifle. It is a nice tight fit with tactical teams, and so common that multi-agency teams have common ammo and gear. It doesn't have the long range capability of the M16, but still has a solid range. If the weapon is taken care of it will be reliable and you can depend on it when you need it. Our Department has had them for almost nine years and they are a perfect fit. The rail give us the option to custom fit what we want, how we want, to each rifle. There are some better rifles out there but this one is among the best.

    I found that the M4A1 rifle is a practical weapon for urban operations IN THE IDEAL ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS. Unfortunately, this weapon has the annoying tendency to jam when a minimum of dust or sand gets into the bolt. Again, in IDEAL conditions the weapon is very accurate and easy to fire. There is really no good solution to the jamming problem because even if your weapon was in pristine condition when you start firing, if sand is introduced into the chamber there is a high probability that it will jam. By adding lubricant, you create a sort of gummy mixture that tends to cause the weapon to jam even more. If you can manage to keep the bolt from getting dirty then it will work perfectly.

    Good product. I had one I carried in my unit for about two years. We had to purchase our own assault rifles at the time. However after a lot of comparison, I sold this weapon and went with the Mini-14. Accuracy and dependability were greater from everything I studied and my own experiences. How many times are you ever gonna need full auto? Hopefully never.

    Was a great work rifle, had some issues with the standard gas problems. Length and weight were excellent for carrying and maintaining shooting stance, weak and strong sided. Also, with the Eotech was highly maniplulable with gas mask on. Standard AR-15 rifle, only issues I had after about 20,000 rounds through the years were the standard gas port clogging, and broken extractors. Other than that, this was the one I liked most.

    My department's tactical team is going from the mp5 to the m4 as our primary shoulder fired entry weapon. It's a long overdue change and we are all excited about it. The m4 is a lightweight, versitile and accurate weapon. The police ammo available for this weapon reduces over-penetration making it a better weapon for entry work that is less likely to cause collateral damage or friendly fire incidents. It is more acurate at longer distances and can penetrate most body armor. With the rising number of criminals gaining access to body armor this is quickly becoming a needed feature for tactical teams. You can trick these weapons out with an endless erray of extras and that's just cool now isn't it. The main drawback to this weapon is that it's fairly high maintenance. But keep it clean and oiled like you are supposed to and it'll be your best friend when the Sh@t hits the fan.

My current agency had the same piece of junk .40 cal rifle when I started there and we just got these recently. It was like the return of a long lost friend.

    Excellent weapon system! Could stand to use a larger caliber bullet (6.5 Grendel or 6.8 SPC) but it's compact size makes it easier to get into and out of vehicles, buildings, ships and anywhere that might be limited in space. The short barrel limits the maximum effective range but it still has enough energy to reach out and hurt Billy Bad Guy or haji out to 300 (500 if you've got some talent or luck).

    It is what it is. It's not an outstanding weapon. But I prefer it to the M-16. I suppose my main hang up on the M-4/M-16 family of weapons is the fact they both use 5.56 tumbler rounds (.223 cal) and I like the stopping power of a good 7.62 (.308)
    After being a SAW gunner for a year though, I love the fact that I'm only lugging around 5 and a half pounds plus ammo.

    I have used variations of this rifle over the years from the M-16, M-16A1, M-16A2, M16A3, M16A4 and now the M4A1, mostly with the military since the 1980's. The improvements of accurracy, versitility,and now all the modular attachments i.e... rail mounts, collapsable stock, and optics makes this rifle very user friendly and deadly in urban and rural medium range use. I used to think that the 5.56mm round was not adaquate, but the A2 type ammo improved its lethality. I would like to see availible as an option the 6.8 mm caliber, that US special ops units have been using in the Iraq war.

This is not the weapon issued to regulars from the Army and Marines, this is the fully automatic version (hence the A1) that is issued to SOCOM units (SF, Ranger, MARSOC, AF Air Commandos, DELTA, SEALs, 160th SOAR) and HIGHSPEED and WELL FUNDED civilian tactical units such as FBI-HR, big city (LAPD, Miami PD, NYPD..etc etc) SWAT, CIA, etc etc.
    The M-4's in Iraq and Afghanistan are A4 models.

    I used this rifle during my enlistment in the USMC and it worked fine, currently at work we carry A2,A3 and they do their job, since we are on the beach the rust very quicly, and besides the smaller cartridge that is the only fault that I see with it. I would rather carry an M1, but the rifle is not as light as the AR so in my place of work we carry the friendly light AR's

    This is the issued rifle for our SWAT team and it is a great weapon. What makes it great is the ability to set it up however the shooter wants. It is very accurate and easy to handle. The only down fall is the stopping power at distance.

    So far, I don't think that I had a problem with it. The caliber is to light for long distance shooting and I would prefer the bull-pup design, However the ergonomic are easy for a right-handed shooter.

    light when you have the 20- or the 30- round mag in it. But all you need is a 20 round mag cause when thay hear the rounds comein out thay will give up

    In my opinion this is on of the best short to mid range weapons out there. boosting 30 or more 223 cartriges it is more that effective in many tactical scenarios.

    Better than the M-16 line, but still underpowered.
