HistoryEditThe Colt M-16 is an Assault Rifle that was originally designed by Armalite, however Colt Manufacturing Company bought the designs from them and developed the Colt M-16. The weapon was used in the Vietnam War and was 3 pounds lighter than the 7.62x51mm NATO M14 Rifle. The weapon was thought to not need cleaning, however when this weapon started to jam, soldiers were losing their lives on the battlefield. Eventually the US Military started issuing cleaning kits to their troops. The weapon has also gone through many modifications and variants and by the 1990's, it became the big brother of the M4A1 carbine.
The Colt M-16 has been used since the early 1960's as the United State's standard infantry rifle. Alpha Wolf owns and is one of several other main firearms he uses on the battlefield, however his is the Colt M-16A1 model.
By the year 2235, a zombie plague had started to ravage much of the world and the United States issued this rifle to their troops, however due to it's length, the Colt M-16 was a liability to anyone using them against the zombie threat. The M4A1 was also the same way, so these weapons were cast aside and were replaced by the M-50 Sub Assault Rifle.
