Last I heard, FN had the contract to make M-16s (and M-4s, too, I think) for the U.S. military. I don't know if that's still the case.

M4 carbines with M203 grenade launchers and SAW’s are practical choices for any modern army. Add a designated marksman’s scoped flattop heavy barrel with bi-pod and ya have a pretty good general issue in one caliber with 40mm HEDP added as well.
I do love the AK with the BG15 30mm grenade launcher and SVD/FPK series of sniper rifles as well. Yet the modernization of the US primary infantry tools wins IMO.
Hey Dillion !
Please make a smaller M134DT in 5.56mm.......:o)
Wish list ...........make every thing in the 5.56mm caliber into 6.5 grendel including a minigun !
