hi guys! im just new here in this forum and i have seen some filipino members. my question: is the M16/AR15 or any other 5.56mm rifle allowed in the philippines? what are the laws regarding it? is it allowed in full auto or just semi? im asking this because i have seen this poster earlier this day about a two gun match (pistol & m16). thanks in advance! :)

Sorry I can't help you with your question; I just wanted to say WELCOME to TFL!

Mabuhay Stalker. Suggest you re start your thread with "Philippines" in the title. Such as "AR/M-16 legal in Philippines ?" That should attract those who know.

I don't know.

they are still made in the Philippines by a company called Armalite
(Eagle arms in Illinois, bought the US rights to the name)

weather or not a civilian can own one there is a good question

heres an A1 style Filipino Armalite:
