The M16 refers to a family of assault rifles all manufactured by Colt's Manufacturing Company that all chamber the 5.56x45mm NATO round. It was made to replace the earlier M14 battle rifle. The M16A2 and A4 variants fire in three-round burst or semi-automatic, while the original M16A1 and A3 variants fire fully-automatic or semi-automatic.
