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.
"The whole of the Bill (of Rights) is a declaration of the right of the people at large or considered as individuals.... It establishes some rights of the individual as unalienable and which consequently, no majority has a right to deprive them of." (Albert Gallatin of the New York Historical Society, October 7, 1789)
"A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government." - George Washington
Well just guessing there must be about 80 parts if you count all the pins, etc.
The biggest issue with assembling an AR isn't so much getting the parts together right - it's getting the right parts together. You'll remember the quality of a gun long after you forget how much you paid for it.

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
