Myself, I feel they are interchangeable and gas system length really doesn't matter.
But, yeah, 16" M4 = Carbine. 20" AR = Rifle. In most circles anyway
What ever, it's obvious you & your crony where trying to be cute & mock me. I've been issued an A2 Rifle, A4 Rifle & M4 Carbine.
On my A2 the only attachments I had was an M203 with quadrants & leaf sites. On my A4 & M4 we had the same flashlight, BUIS & broomstick that's on my BCM A4. Our DMR's run the same power scope that I have on my BCM except the Corps uses Leapold, I don't have that kind of cash.
My rifle looks like any other typical AR, optic, BUIS, broomstick & flash light. I added the stock because the Corps at one time was testing this VLTOR stock. About the only thing that would even remotely deserve critisim is my use of a MRD at 1 o'clock but that is also gaining momentum in the AR community.
My BCM is setup exactly how I would setup my issued weapon when deployed. I have no idea where or why you felt the need to critique me but I'm more then willing to compare resumes on actual real world usage of this platform.
