    M4 vs. M5 carbine

    Does anyone know if there is a difference between an M4 and an M5 Carbine?

    Maybe you're thinking MP5 like in HK MP5 sub.

    The Colt M5 (AKA LE1020) is thier little know Gas Piston Design, I think it originated at Diemaco, I could be wrong on that.

    Been out a while, looks like they repackaged it for this years AUSA.

    Per Sabre specifications, the M5 is their designation for the midlength gas block placement.

    Colt's M5 is not the LE1020, very different gun- The M5 has a different rail (it's not monolithic like the LE1020), different barrel attachment system, adjustable rate buffer, among other things...
