See below. There are quite a few African nations listed as users of the M16.

I've seen M16s in pretty much every country I've trained in, including African states, usually in the minority next to a bunch of AKs. I even saw a Vietnam era leftover when training in Cambodia once, but that's another story.

I wad fired on by several M16 in Rwanda but we still don't know who it was shooting at us. But the three other times I was shot at in Africa and the one time I was held at gunpoint, it was all AK.

I think I may have seen this same gun!

I'll have to post pics when I get home today. I had the pics up for a while on AR15.com...
