The military gets a reduced rate for buying in bulk. IF a transferrable M4 exisited, it would be in the 20K range.
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.
It is a logical progression from the first thoughts Eugene Stoner put down on paper when he conceived the AR series.

The M4 carbine, as issued to military and government forces, do not have a compensator. It has a flash suppressor, which is typically of the A2 "birdcage" type common to the M…16 rifle, although this may be replaced with a number of aftermarket models.
Almost everywhere, the answer is no.
With a 30 rd magazine. About 7.5 lbs.

By definition, a carbine is a short rifle. The standard M-16 has a 20" barrel, while the M-4 has a 16" barrel. A number of US Rifles have had carbine versions, with the notab…le exceptions being the M-1903 and the Rifle, .30 M-1.
You can buy a plastic m4 or you can buy a metal m4
Effective ranges are 500 metres for a point target, 800 for an area target.
The military pays one set price according to a contarct, regardless of location.

There is also a spring under the detente in the front sight assembly. And don't forget the magazine spring.
Muzzle Brakes reduce the felt recoil and barrel rise when firing a firearm. Flash Suppressors reduce the flash produced from firing a firearm.
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.
To put it simply, you can not. If you want a rifle that looks/functions like an M-16/M-4, but is semi-automatic, then it must have been an AR-15 imported into California and r…egistered before the "California Assault Weapons Ban" took place - and you must have been the owner of it at the time as registration, as California made all so-called assault rifles non-transferable to any resident of the state. If you want a civilian semi auto "M4gerY', you must either use a bullet button magazine release, or else have a completely featureless rifle (no pistol grip, no adjustable buttstocks, no flash suppressor, etc). In California, it is nigh-impossible to obtain a fully automatic firearm. An additional note, it is not an "Assault Carbine", it is a "Carbine, 5.56mm, M4". "Assault Weapon" is a BS term used by ignorant fear-mongerers, used to ban cosmetic features like pistol grips, bayonet lugs, and flash hiders.
In the United States. It's origins lie in the problematic XM-177 carbine. Replacing the 10 inch barrel and bulbous flash suppressor with a 14.5 inch barrel rectified some of t…he problems, then the special operations community was asked for their input into improving further on that. So the new rifle was built on A2 receivers, and had some new features, such as the extended feed ramps requested by the special ops community.
