Is this a trick question Winds?

To tell the caliber, you have to cut it in half, and count the rings....

it's an AR of some sort. looks to be an M4 or a M4 copy. probably chambered in 5.56mm or 223. just a guess though.

Well then it appears to be an M4 or some variant of it. If it is being used by police/military then my logic dictates it should be chambered in 5.56

Of course it is difficult to tell the caliber until the guy in the photo hands it over to me

It's either an M4, or an AR-15, and it's most likely chambered in 5.56 NATO. Don't worry winds, ARs come is SO many styles, that unless you are familiar with the platform, you may not recognize a certain on as an AR. Mine looks completely different from that one.

Exactly.

I have difficulty telling an AK from an AR if the stocks are similar. Isn't .223 not a very big round?

Why is it when I ask a question everything thinks I'm kidding. Do you all think I know more than I really know?
