Beginning of the vid, it says FN on the place. I didn't know FN made M16s for the US military. I thought they came from Colt and others. Or is Colt the M4 only? I guess FN is one of the approved contractors. Didn't know that. At first, I thought it was probably not Fabrique National, but it appears it is:

Did any of your M16s say FN on them?

The M16A4 I was issued at OSUT was a FN rifle. I didn't realize they made them either until I drew one from the arms room at my Sand Hill company. I've never seen an M4 made by FN but I'd say about 90% of the M16A4s I've seen came from FN.

to give you an idea how many of mine have been FN rifles:

my first Colt M16 was issued my the unit I'm with now. the other 6 or so rifles I've used in the Army thus far were all FN weapons.
