The xm16e1 is a 5.56 millimeter or 0.223 caliber shoulder weapon. It is charger powered, gas powered and air cooled. The magazine capacity is 20 rounds. By closing the bolt and turning the selector lever to semi, the rifle will fire semi-automatically. Alien By turning the selector lever to Auto the rifle will fire fully automatic The cyclic rate of fire is 700 to 800 rounds per minute with a muzzle velocity of approximately 3,150 feet per second The maximum effective range is 460 meters The most distinctive feature of the weapon Its light weight when fully loaded with 20 rounds is this weapon weighs less than eight pounds This ratio of weight to firepower in the XM16E1 results from the design, construction and

operation

One of its main features is the straight line construction the line straight extends through the breech of the original bolt carrier group and Barrel: this design substantially reduces the rise of the rifle during firing.

The barrel is surrounded by a heat-resistant fiberglass material with an aluminum reflective shield that serves as a hand guard. Vents along the top and bottom surfaces of the handguard allow air circulation around the barrel. The expulsion. The port has a hinged dust cover to prevent foreign matter from entering the chamber through the ejection port when the weapon is cocked or fired the dust cover opens automatically for ejection of spent cartridges the carrying handle is a part integrated receiver due to the straight-line construction of this weapon is necessary. High sights are necessary. The rear sight is located on the rear of the carry handle and is protected by the raised sides of the handle.

Additional designs can be seen in this view, one of them being the gas operating system. When a bullet is fired, the gas passes through a gas port located on the front upper surface of the barrel and is directed through a gas tube back to the cylinder formed by the bolt and bolt carrier, causing the carrier to move rearward. Another design is the breech locking mechanism. The bolt lugs lock the bolt directly to the barrel, thus eliminating the need for the heavy receiver normally required to lock the bolt behind the cartridge. The stock of the rifle is composed of a durable synthetic material with high impact resistance.

It contains the recoil mechanism which consists of the action spring guide and the action spring, a part of the recoil is absorbed by the shock absorber. The rings located in the action spring guide during recoil, the outer rings are forced to pass over the inner rings. A special feature of the xm16 E1 rifle is the forward assist assembly. This allows the rifleman to seat the bolt manually if it does not do so automatically. The main distinctive features of the weapon have been described before learning how it works, we will see how it is used. The weapon has three functions: loading, firing and unloading.
To load the magazine, remove the empty magazine by pressing the magazine release button located above and forward of the trigger guard. Place one round on top of the magazine follower tip towards the smooth face of the magazine and press down, repeat until 20 rounds have been inserted before. load the gun place the safety selector lever on the safe with the gun in the safe insert the loaded magazine into the magazine entrance and push up a click will be heard when the magazine is properly seated to release the bolt and chamber the bullet Pull the charging handle all the way back and release or depress the bolt Catch the forward movement of the bolt strips around the magazine and chambers to fire semi-automatically Turn the selector lever to the semi position, the rifle will fire each time the trigger is pressed fires automatically turn the selector lever to the automatic position the rifle will continue to fire automatically as long as the trigger is pulled back until the magazine is empty to unload the weapon first place the selector lever in the safe position remove the magazine by pressing the button magazine release button remember that the rifle is clear only when the bolt is rearward there are no bullets in the chamber the magazine is removed and the selector lever is on Safe although the configuration of the xm16e1 is distinctive its

operation

cycle and function are similar.
For other military rifles with automatic capabilities, the weapon's operating cycle consists of eight basic mechanical operations: firing, unlocking, extracting, ejecting, cocking, breech feeding, and locking, although many of these occur simultaneously, they will be discussed separately. for semi-automatic and automatic fire. let's start shooting when there is a bullet in the chamber the gun is ready to fire for semi-automatic firing the selector lever is turned to the semi position assuming that the hammer is in the cocked position to begin the firing cycle it is started by pressing the trigger the The trigger rotates on the trigger pin and is released from the notch in the bottom of the hammer.
The hammer is moved forward by the action of the hammer spring. ignites the gunpowder, the firing section of the rifle is so fast that it is impossible for the operator to release the trigger quickly enough to prevent multiple shots even if he tried to do so, so a device is installed in the firing mechanism to allow shoot just one. rounds in the the trigger is released, the disconnect rotates downward and disengages the hammer, allowing it to rotate forward until caught by the tip of the trigger, this prevents the hammer from following the bolt carrier forward in the semi-automatic position, the disconnect Controls the firing mechanism to provide a single shot each time the trigger is pulled.
The next three operations in the cycle occur in rapid sequence as an immediate consequence of the shot, the first of which is to unlock before firing the bolt has been locked in barrel extension by aligning the bolt lugs and Barrel Extension When the bullet is fired, the gas from the burning gunpowder forces the projectile through the barrel. A small portion of gas enters the gas port at the top of the barrel, below the front site, the gas port directs the gas towards the gas tube that carries it. in the cylinder between the bolt carrier and the bolt and drives the bolt carrier rearward during this rearward movement a cam track on the upper surface of the bolt carrier acts on the cam pin of the vessel by rotating the cam pin and bolt in the direction clockwise until the bolt locking lugs are no longer aligned with the barrel extension locking lugs during unlocking the firing pin is removed from the bolt face by the bolt carrier group with the bolt unlocked The next sequence occurs in the cycle of operation this is extracting the extractor is contained in the front end of the bolt grips the rim of the cartridge and holds it firmly against the face of the ship when the bolt carrier and bolt are moved rearwards the extractor it grips the cartridge case removes it from the chamber the gas action will be repeated when the bullet is fired and the gas pressure pushes the projectile through the barrel.
A small portion of this pressure enters the gas port and passes through the gas tube into the cylinder between the bolt carrier and bolt. Here the gas drives the bolt carrier rearward unlocking the bolt and extracting the cartridge case When the cartridge case is removed from the chamber, the following operation can occur: Ejecting the bolt contains an ejector and an ejector spring that are compressed by the cartridge base when the spent cartridge case is completely out of the chamber. The ejector spring forces the ejector forward. This action ejects the cartridge case out of the rifle through the ejection port.
With each shot, the bolt carrier and bolt are driven rearward by the force of the gas. This odd movement in turn initiates the unlocking, extraction and ejection sequence during the rearward movement of the ship Transport group another action occurs the transport group moves rearward overrides the hammer and forces it into the receiver by compressing the hammer spring the lower hook of the hammer engages the disconnection when the trigger is released the hammer slides from the disconnection and is caught by the tip of the trigger the gun is cocked another simultaneous action occurs during the rare wooden movement of the ship's carrying group this This action is called feeding since the bolt carrier group clears the top of the magazine and ejects the empty cartridge case, a new bullet is pushed into the bolt path by the upward push of the magazine follower and spring.
The spring action guide that pushes on the rear of the bolt carrier group is forced rearward by the bolt carrier group that compresses the spring action. The bolt carrier group reaches its rearmost position when the rear of the spring action guide contacts the rear of the receiver extension. Now the compressed action spring expands, this drives the action spring guide assembly forward with enough force to drive the bolt carrier group forward towards the breech this initiates the next action in the breech operating cycle as it The bolt carrier group moves forward, the bolt face removes a new round from the magazine and moves it into the chamber while the extractor grips the rim of the cartridge, ejector and ejector.
The base of the cartridge forces the spring toward the bolt as the bullet seats in the chamber. A final action is now required to complete the lock cycle. Forward motion of the canister ceases when the bolt locking lugs pass between the barrel extension lock. lugs and the bullet is fully chambered when the bolt carrier enters the last half inch of its forward movement, the bolt cam pin emerges from the guide channel in the upper receiver moves along the cam track turning the bolt counterclockwise, this locks the bolt into the barrel extension. locking the bolt completes the operating cycle the gun is ready to be fired again when the selector lever is in semi-automatic as it has been during this review of the operating cycle a single round is fired each time the trigger is pressed when the lever selector moves to the automatic position the gun operates in a slightly different manner automatic firing begins when the trigger is pressed to release the hammer the hammer strikes the firing pin and fires the first round the bolt recoils and moves rearward disengaging the hammer and By pressing it to the cocked position at this time, the center cam on the selector lever prevents the disengagement from engaging the hammer as it does in semi-automatic fire.
Simultaneously, another cam on the selector lever rotates the automatic sear forward, which catches the upper hook of the hammer. The automatic sear holds the hammer in the cocked position until it is struck by a shoulder on the bottom of the bolt carrier. This releases the hammer while the trigger remains depressed the tip fails to engage the hammer and automatic fire continues until the magazine is empty, however, when the trigger is released during firing, the trigger tip moves upward engaging the hammer, the Automatic firing cycle stops until the trigger is pressed again. All other operations and automatic shooting are the same as semi-automatic shooting. fire unlock extract eject cock feed the chamber and lock these separate but interrelated operations complete the operating cycle of the xm16e1 rifle remember the xm16e1 is a gas operated, air cooled, shoulder fired weapon capable of semi-automatic orautomatic, fires 5.56 millimeter ammunition fed from a 20-round magazine the weight of the loaded aluminum magazine is seven tenths of a pound the weight of the loaded weapon is 7.6 pounds its maximum effective range is 460 meters construction in Straight line helps ensure accuracy of fire through reduced muzzle rise Military situations requiring a high degree of individual mobility coupled with the greatest possible small arms firepower per man, the XM16E1 rifle has proven its worth overseas.
