Reproduction of assault rifle, made of metal and plastic, with loading and firing simulated mechanism and with removable magazine.

The M16 assault rifle was designed by Eugene Stoner in the 1950s with the original name of AR-15. Made of steel, aluminum and various plastic components, it is an automatic assault rifle powered by gas and rotary bolt, powered by removable clips of 20 and 30 cartridges of caliber 5.56 mm. It shoots a speed of 800-900 shots per minute and an effective range of 500 m.

It was adopted by the United States Army and used for the operations of the Vietnam War in 1963. In 1967, after some modifications the M16 was renamed M16A1, becoming the standard rifle of the military forces Americans in 1969.

The war in Vietnam took place between 1955 and 1975 to prevent the reunification of Vietnam under a communist government. The Republic of Vietnam (South Vietnam) participated with the support of the United States and other nations, against the local guerrillas of the National Front for the Liberation of Vietnam (Viet Cong) and the army of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam (North Vietnam), supported by China and the Soviet Union.

Since the Vietnam War, the family of M16 rifles has been the main weapon of the US armed forces. The M16 has been widely adopted by armies around the world and the total production of M16 rifles since the beginning of its design is approximately 8 million, being the most produced weapon of its caliber.

    The Denix company produce amongst the finest reproduction weapons in the market at an extremely competitive price. Here in the UK, the options for re-enactors, collectors and enthusiasts is a weapon deactivated to the current EU legal requirement which is very expensive and quite often the weapon will not cock and dry fire, meaning you pay £600 - £700 for what is effectively a display item!

    Denix fills this gap in the market nicely by offering near perfectly matching in every detail replicas at 20% of the cost of a deactivated model!

    I have purchased several Denix models and I am a big fan of the brand - I can safely say that they deliver fast, the weapons are durable, reliable and above all are very aesthetically pleasing whether on display or part of a collection.

    I don’t personally own this replica but it has been in my sights for quite some time now. I’ve always love the M16 variants but the A1 is by far my most favorite. It just looks good and has that nostalgic feeling to it. I’m currently in the NROTC program at a university and we have decommissioned Vietnam era M16A1’s which we use for drill. I’m not allowed to own and use those but if I get picked for this giveaway then I will be able to use it and drill with it.

    I really want to win the M16A1 in the giveaway as it is my favorite firearm in history, being lucky enough to learn about the history of it and being able to handle it puts it up there. I'll be extremely grateful if I win this as it is hard to find Denix replicas in my place of residence.
