What is a M4 carbine used for?
The TRUE M4 carbine is a select fire weapon, and is not available for sale to private persons. The M-16 is also select fire, but some were registered with the BATF prior to th…e May 1986 cutoff date, and CAN be transferred. The M4 was made AFTER the cutoff date for a private citizen to register one.
Yes. There are many versions of the M4 Carbine available for civilian purchase. But you have to have a permit for it to be full automatic. Semi automatic AR-15 style rifles ar…e very popular. Note- the full auto M-4 Carbine was created after May 1986. In the US, only those full auto firearms already registered to private citizens on that date could be transferred to a private citizen in the future. So while a semi-auto AR-15 style carbine is legal in most states, the full auto version cannot be transferred to a private citizen- too new.
They are not the same. The M4A1 was first issued to U.S troops in 1997. It is more reliable than the M4 and has a fully automatic fire capability.
The M4 Carbine is a LIGHT WEIGHT, GAS OPERATED, AIR COOLED, MAGAZINE FED, SHOULDER FIRED weapon.. Maximum Effective Range : [point target: 500 meters, Area Target: 600 mete…rs.].

Contact your local law enforcement. As a general rule, each state will have its own qualification standards and they can vary. Most states run a peace officer or police office…r academy(ies), that would be the first place I would check.

Effective ranges are 500 metres for a point target, 800 for an area target.
Whatever you want to use. If you have an RAS on it, you could put a foregrip, tactical light, PAC-4/PEQ-2/any other infrared aiming device, optics (EOTech, AimPoint.. some cus…tomers might use the MEPRO21), could could attach a grenade launcher or something like a KAC Masterkey breaching shotgun to it. Normal line units would typically have some sort of optic (EOTech, AimPoint, or Trijicon ACOG), rear backup iron sight, PAQ-4 or PEQ-2 infrared laser, and some sort of visible light. A rear area unit, however, isn't likely to use any of these, and may not even have the RAS, instead using just the standard heat shields and iron sights.
No... the M4 carbine didn't enter production until 1984. The sometimes problematic predecessor of the M4 - the XM177 - was used in Vietnam, however.
Very few transferrable ones were made prior to the Firearm Owner's Protection Act of 1986 (the legislation which, among other things, prohibited the continued manufacture of f…ull auto weapons for the civil market). If any of these are up for sale, you'd have to search for ads on shooters' forums, listings on Gunbroker, Auction Arms, Guns America, etc. under the 'Class III' section. Otherwise, you could try to find a transferrable M16 or lower, and add your own upper receiver and furniture. Again, you'd be looking at the same sources for that. If you want a civilian semi auto lookalike, you have a number of sources. If you want the 14.5 inch barrel, like the military rifles have, you'll either have to get an NFA tax stamped Short Barreled Rifle (SBR), or a permanently attached flash suppressor of a length which will bring it to the legal 16 inches. CMMG offers a 14.7 inch barrel which comes to the legal 16" with a standard A2 "birdcage" flash suppressor fixed to it. As for those, any gun shop can order them, or, again, you can get them from websites such as Gun Broker, Auction Arms, manufacturer's websites, etc. Keep in mind that, if you order one online, you'll need an FFL dealer to receive it for you, and there's usually a fee associated with that.
Yes, as are most AR-15 variants and clones from Eugene Stoner's original design. Gases are vented from the gas block located under the front sight post on the barrel through t…he gas tube back into the receiver of the rifle, where it meets the gas key that is attached to the bolt carrier. The expanding gases then thrust the separation of the gas key and gas tube, thus cycling the bolt, both ejecting the spent cartridge on rearward travel and loading a new cartridge on forward travel. This is known as auto-loading. Many newer designs are now using Gas-piston operation rather than Gas-tube, as this enables better cycling of action and far less fouling of the receiver from the vented gases inside the action itself.
The blank. You might also say dummy munitions, which are shaped to resemble a cartridge with a projectile, but have no actual projectile.
