M4 Carbine
M4 Carbine. Approx 2.5 feet long. 1500 pieces plus. Lots of features.
About this creation
I am happy to present to you, the M4 Carbine! Being the weapon of choice for the US army, this has got to be one of the most famous guns out there. Picked for its versatility in combat, light weight, and tactical advantages, the M4 is definitely a weapon you want on your side. With a fire rate of 850-900 rpm, this thing can pack quite a punch. Ya can't go wrong with an M4 at your side.

Although my model does not shoot, I tried to incorporate as many functioning details in it as I could. Here is a list:

-field strippable
-opening dust cover
-removable magazine
-mag release button
-that-button-on-the-side-that-helps-with-chambering
-adjustable stock
-functioning rails
-pull-back bolt
-carrying handle
-iron sights
-moving safety

VIDEO!!!




The full view. It's longer than I thought it would be!



Field strip.



The meat and potatoes of the gun. All the gadgets are on this side, such as the forward assist button, and the ejection port. Oh yeah and the brass deflector.



The carrying handle sights.



The quad rail. This thing was soooo hard to build. the design was rather simple, but putting it together was maddening. If you pressed to hard on one side, it would cave in and explode. Once it's completely built, it holds itself together though.



The ejection port/dust cover. AKA where the spent cartridge flies out.



It opens to reveal the bolt...



which can be pulled back.



The magazine.



The fake bullet. I love the pearl gold cap :)



The other side of the gun. There's that-button-on-the-side-that-helps-with-chambering. Notice the knobs on the carrying handle.



The stock extended.



Stock depressed. By the way the stock locks into place. To unlock it, you push the pointy thing up, just like on the real thing. It was very difficult to get tension on that button.



No carrying handle. Doesn't it look like a Commando?



Alternate iron sight



ADS of the sight flipped up. Rifle sight mode.



ADS of the sight flipped down. Pistol sight mode,



FPS view. I love this picture ;)



One last look at the gun.



Here's a photo of the real thing for reference.

Thanks for viewing!

Quoting Weston Wedeward Nice firearm! Even though the barrel seems a bit weak structurally, the gun is good looking overall. By the way, the button on the side is called a forward assist. It was introduced after Vietnam due to the gun jamming so often.
Thank you! But I think your referring to the wrong button. What is the one opposite to the mag release? I always thought the forward assist button was behind the "Brass Deflector."

Clever magazine design, and nice job fitting in all the small details. You should make a lot more guns.

Well done. You definitely captured the essence of the M4. To answer below, the M4 is a carbine (shorter) version of the M16. Same family, same round but still some major size differences resulting in a different designation.

A lot of work indeed! Well detailed! The grey clip was well built but i felt that its too light considering the black body. Only details that won't reduce your exemplar build.

Quoting Alex Covington Great M4! Can you please send the ldd to acovingt0@gmail.com
Sorry, but some techniques I used on this gun can't be translated in LDD. If I send you instructions, they will be incomplete.

WOW. Amazing M4. I wish I had so many black pieces. But are you sure that handle is called ,,charging handle,,? Because I think charging handle is for charging gun not for carrying it. I can be wrong English is not my native. And one more thing: is M4 really most famous gun? There is still M16 and AK-47 :). Anyway I love it.

Amazing, simply amazing. My only problem is that the foregrip looks too short or the barrel looks too long- try lengthening the foregrip a little bit. And the triangular thing near the dust cover is called a "brass deflector". It moves the spent cases towards one side, so they do not hit the shooter or any optics mounted on the rifle. Great overall! 4.5/5.
