Our Assessment:  The FN 15® Military Collector Series M16. This rifle is a true replica of the iconic M16 that has served our military with distinction. Now, let’s break it down and see what this bad boy has to offer.

First things first, this rifle is chambered in 5.56x45mm NATO, which means it packs a punch. With a 20-inch, chrome-lined barrel and a 1:7″ twist rate, you can expect excellent accuracy and reliability. The button-broached barrel ensures consistent performance, shot after shot.

Now, one of the standout features of this rifle is the ambidextrous selector switch. Just like its select-fire big brother, this M16 replica lets you easily switch between safe and semi-automatic modes, regardless of whether you’re a lefty or a righty.

The FN 15® Military Collector M16 comes with a fixed A2 rifle buttstock and an A2 pistol grip, providing a classic and comfortable shooting experience. The hard-anodized aluminum construction ensures durability while keeping the weight at a manageable 8.2 pounds.

Now, let’s talk about the accessories. This rifle features a flat-top receiver with a MIL-STD-1913 rail at the 12 o’clock position. That means you can easily attach your favorite optics and accessories to suit your needs. But swapping out the rear sight may not be an option as it is already mounted with one of the best battle sights on the market.   And let’s not forget about the Knights Armament M5 RAS Adapter rail with rail adapter covers, giving you even more versatility for customization.

Overall, the FN 15® Military Collector M16 is a fantastic rifle that captures the essence of the iconic M16.
