Hi All,

I'm compiling a list of (civilian legal) firearms in 5.56 that use NATO mags. Help me out!

This should be low hanging fruit for many of you, but so far I have:

AR15
Sig Sauer 556
FN SCAR
FN FS2000

I will update the list as I get more suggestions.

Anyone want to weed through RD's paste and comment on them?

Which of them are in production? Which are currently subject to some sort of ban? The M4 is banned by the 86 ban, the M16 is artificially astronomical for the same reason. The HK416 is just an AR clone, and not available to civilians. The SAW isn't realistic to own for normal people. etc. etc.

Maybe I'll make 3 lists:

1) Legal, currently in production, and realistic to own
2) Legal for most people, unrealistic due to artificial pricing brought about by regulation
3) Banned

Beretta Rx4 Storm


Is the Beretta Rx4 Storm still alive? Is it even available yet? Never seen one, don't see any on gunbroker right now either.
