In the interest of precision, I need to point out that the bolt for the select fire and semi auto guns is the same. The bolt carrier is what is different.

The weathering and wear on the pistol grip say its original, to me.

Looks like a nice example of a modified and slightly worn rifle, to me.

Congrats!

Thank you. I guess it started life as a regular 20” M16 A1, like the other M16 A1 I have, which was also in Israel.





Found this website which has some details about the IDF weapons

You’re obviously right about the bolt carrier, thanks
