M4 Carbine Improvements

The M4 Carbine has come a long way, since first introduced into service. With the recent dispute over who should rightfully be awarded the contract to produce thousands of the firearms for the U.S. Army, it is quite interesting to take a look and see the evolution over the past two decades. PEO Soldier released this graphic that allows you to take in many of the major changes all at once.

The continual improvements are ongoing and it is noted by PEO Soldier that a search for a better forward rail assembly is in the works with 2014 targeted for completion assuming an improved option is out there. This graphic should look quite interesting come 2020 at this rate.
