There's no such thing as a mil-spec AR-15. "Mil-spec" would define an M16, and you can't have one of those.

Why don't you explain what you want out of the rifle and what your budget is? That way we can better help you decide.

THe funny thing is everyone is always concerned with mil-spec and most people that have been in the military will tell you their M-16's suck, as far as worn out rattle cans.

My boy that just came back from afghanistan likes my ST-15 better than his issued M-16

very true thats why they only use the m16 for tranning because i heard that there barrels get hot and start to malfunction plus they were to heavy and now use the m4 but what brand do they use?

I had the pleasure of being issued a brand new straight out of the crate FN M16A4, and it was a good rifle. Before that I had a worn out A2, that was a POS, but it was serviceable. There is a difference between nice or new, and serviceable. The government is a business, and any business will get the most use possible out of their equipment before they decide to trash it.

*Further more the only issues I had with reliability had to do with magazines.

Can we lay off the heavy phone text and get some full words and punctuation up in here? It's damn near impossible to understand what you're trying to say.

This thread is heading for a big fat lock. It's helpful to use correct spelling, grammar, and punctuation; your point will come across much more easily. So far, I think you're asking who makes the M16s that the U.S. military uses. That would be Colt. But Colt isn't going to sell you an M16, so you'd have to buy a semi-auto AR-15 from them.

But before we talk about brand, the most important questions to ask yourself are, "what do I want to do with this rifle?" and "what's my budget?". Once you know the answers to those questions, everything will be simpler. There are many very high-quality AR-15 brands that aren't used by the military or any LEOs.

I guess the marines never get to stop training....

You are either really lost or in fact a troll

Colt
FN
Sabre Defence
LMT

Those are currently the biggest contractors. Colt is the sole source for the M4 and does M203's. FN is the current big M16 contractor. Sabre had a Navy(?) M16 contract. LMT makes the Navy MK18 uppers and M203's.

I believe the military sources the parts and builds their own DMR's, but I'm not positive on that one.

But Colt is not the only one.
