Reloading M4
 
Hello everyone,
I have a question about the assault rifle M4 loaded. I saw they reloaded it on Youtube, they reloaded in two ways. One, they removed the mags, and then pulled slide back and release slide back to chamber round. Two. they removed the mags normally, but after that they didn't pull slide back, they hitted a button or something like that, above and on the left of the trigger. Somebody can explain to me the second ways? Thanks!

The AR series of rifles- M16, M4, AR15 all load in the same manner (except for places like California that do not permit magazines that can be removed without a tool)

IF the rifle has been fired until it is empty, the bolt will normally be held to the rear. Insert a loaded magazine into the magazine well, and press the bolt release button on the left side. If the bolt is NOT to the rear, then after inserting a loaded magazine, you must operate the charging handle to draw back the bolt, and release it to permit the bolt to move forward, and chamber a cartridge.

The large round button set at an angle on the RIGHT side, directly behind the bolt is the forward assist. If the bolt does not go fully forward when loading, pressing that pushes the bolt forward a fraction of an inch.

The file below is a large one- it is the US Army Field Manual on basic rifle marksmanship with the M16. Some reading for you.

Thanks for your informations! Another question, i've just saw some videos of Hickok45 & FPSRussia, i saw on a M4 there's a button's name Forward Assist. What's that exaclly? And what're the differences between that button & the button on the left of trigger? Merci

Please read prior message, which covers the purpose of the "forward assist". If you click on the link I posted in the prior message, it takes you to the US Army manual on the M16/ M4 firearms, which will answer many of your questions.

FYI we don't like to refer to them as an assault rifle when you are refering to the civilian version. Its refered to as a SUR sport utility rifle. A true assault rifle would be capable of sustained auto fire.

Just a friendly note, please don't take offense to it :)

Also, the "AR" does not refer to assault rifle. It refers to Armalite Rifle.

Actually AR stands for ArmaLite. They had AR models which were shotguns and pistols. The AR-17 is a shotgun the AR-24 is a pistol.
