No, we are not selling the same M4s that are in service with the military. Yes, every M4 carbine you’ll see here complies with the requirements for civilian-allowed rifles and is not regulated by the National Firearms Act. No, this is not clickbait to get attention from those seeking an automatic carbine. Who do you take us for? We are law-abiding citizens. We don’t make the rules, though: some manufacturers incorporate the M4 part in their products’ names, and people don’t stop typing “Colt M4 carbine” in the search box, so we have to go with the flow on this one. The path to legally buying a genuine tactical M4 carbine is onerous and tiresome, not to mention a small fortune you’ll have to part with in order to get one. Here you can find semi-automatic AR-15 style rifles with a barrel not shorter than 16 in. featuring some parts commonly found in M4s.

Before we get down to details, let’s determine what an original M4 carbine is. This carbine was designed to meet the need of the military for an M16-style firearm with a shorter barrel for more comfortable close quarters operations. The M4 carbine featured a 14.5” barrel and could operate in a burst fire mode. The fire rate was later upgraded to a full-automatic level, which made the trigger pull more consistent and improved general accuracy. However, the usage of either select fire or fully automatic M4 carbine rifles is restricted to military and law enforcement agencies. No citizen can legally own any machine gun registered in the U.S. after May 19, 1986. There is a very obvious loophole: if you find a firearm registered before that time, you can give it a shot while remaining within the law. Unfortunately for all M4 lovers, the carbine was introduced in 1994, and thus every true M4 ever produced is out of reach for us mere mortals. But if you have ever read any “M4 vs. AR15” article, you’d know that AR-15 is the ancestor of both M4 and M16. They share more similarities than you might think and are virtually the same rifle except for fire rate and barrel length.
