M16-A4 RIFLE


wertThe M16-A4 is the primary weapon used in the United States Marine Corps. It fires M855 Ball ammunition which is a 64 grain 5.56x45MM Full Metal Jacket round. The standard M16-A4 is outfitted with a Trijicon ACOG 4x scope mounted on the flattop rail of the upper receiver. The maximum effective range of the M16-A4 is 550 Meters for a point target (human size) and 800 meters for an area target (building or vehicle). The M16-A4 is a select fire weapon capable of semi-automatic and 3-round burst options. The M16-A4 has a quad-rail system that allows the user to add a forward vertical grip, or a PEQ-15 laser designator.
The M16-A4 has a 20 inch heavy barrel fitted with a NATO A2 style flash suppressor. Affixed to the front sight post is the bayonet lug which allows the user to attach a bayonet or an M203 Grenade launcher.
The M16 series of rifle has been used since the Vietnam conflict. It was first used by the Air Force as the XM-16. After being deemed worthy for combat issue, it was distributed out through the Army and Marine Corps. Soon after, there began to be complaints about the weapon malfunctioning and jamming at the worst possible times. What was found out was the soldiers and Marines were told the rifle was self-cleaning. The government sent out comic-like cleaning manuals and issues began to diminish.
Up until the War on Terror, the Marine Corps was using the previous version of the M16, the M16A2. This weapon had a fixed carry handle which was also the rear sight aperture. This made the rifle have very limited optic capabilities, therefore the Government went to the upgraded A4. The only difference between the two are the removable carry handle to add on an optic such as a Trijicon ACOG or an EOTech holographic weapon sight.
Marines using this newly configured weapon have been more effective engaging the enemy due to the advantage of having a magnified optic.

MARINES & MICKEY


Marines & Mickey Foundation has two (2) Missions…..
1) Marines to Disney Mission: We have committed to sending Marines that have just returned from deployment, not just combat deployments but ANY long term Operation, including the end of a three year recruiting duty or drill instructor duty to Disney World or Disney Land. Our Marines often come back from some of the worst places in the world, therefore, we want to send them to the best place in the World. We are going to send a Marine with His or Her family members which include all meals, tickets, and Hotel on the Disney Property for three (3) days, and two (2) nights. We want to reward our Marines for serving and protecting our country. Our goal.. is to soon be sending four (4) Marines and their families to Disney per month.
2) Parents to Parris Island (also San Diego) Mission: Approx. 500+ Marines graduate every Friday at each Marine Corps Recruit Depots in Parris Island SC and San Diego CA, more when females graduate every other Friday (at Parris Island only). Of those New Marines approx. 30-50 of them are alone after being dismissed… there’s no family or friends there to celebrate with them on one of the biggest days in that Marines life largely in part due to lack of financial ability from their families. We as Marines, DON’T LET MARINES STAND ALONE and we want our New Marines to know his or her family is now our family too, so Marines & Mickey’s Board of Officers and Directors are working tirelessly to figure out how to make that number dwindle to zero here in the very near future. Until then, Marines and Mickey will assist these families in multiple ways including financially but other ways as well to make it to their Marines graduation.
