Default Cant find this anywhere!

How many parts are in an m16a1? I have asked so many people and they all say it consist of five main parts. I want to know how many little springs, bolts, screws,levers, everything little thing inside one!

There are several more parts in a true "M-16A1" than there are in an AR-15...all associated with the auto select and auto sear mechanisms.

Well just guessing there must be about 80 parts if you count all the pins, etc.

A full auto has a sear sear spring and sear pin extra. Three round burst also has an extra spring and burst activator if im not mistaken

Hope you can put it all back together without any left over. And yes, you need a job. Somebody has to support the welfare recipients.
