The Colt M4 Carbine Marketing Video

Although SOCOM started fielding the M4A1 Carbine In 1994, 3rd SFG(A) went to Haiti with the M16A2 and didn’t receive ours until we returned to Ft Bragg in the spring of 95.

    I love how the image in the thumbnail of Colt’s own marketing video shows the carry handle installed wrong. I still get a chuckle out of it when a marketing department broadcasts their unfamiliarity with their own core product segment. A famous example is the Heckler and Koch ad with cartridges loaded backward in the magazine.

      Disregard. I just watched the actual video. It’s just a frame in which the carry handle is being removed.

      It is just paused inconveniently in the midst of taking down the carrying handle.

    Was it the m4a1 back in 1994 as stated under the image, or the m4?

    Someone needs to jump back in the way back machine and give that soldier a period of instruction on properly securing the caps on the Day/Night Flare. At least it was flare end down lol

    I wonder if the M16A3 with the C79 sight was a Diemaco product as they owned the copyrights to this verson of the system.

    This just gave me a wave of nostalgia and reminded me of the 90s military recruiting commercials.

    Basically a Colt 6920 with a 3 round burst/full auto and a 14.5 inch barrel.
