I want to say one thing to all who is playing hte game and really belivres thats a car-15 it isnt it im sorry to say that but it is a XM177. I just want to tell ya, so you dont start to cry when you tke a look at a real CAR-15. http://www.world.guns.ru/assault/as50-e.htm take good look under the the pictures there is the name.
So? I dont see how it is much different at all. Doesn't matter, it's not like it will ruin the whole gaming experience.
the car 15 is the car 15, xm177 is a different version that worked better, but i think car 15 was used more. if wisebobo stumbles accross this thread im sure he could clear this up.

when you use the CAR-15/grenade launcher, doesnt it say Car-15/XM177?
CAR-15 is the generic term to all Carbine versions of the M16 with the exception of the M4/M4a1. CAR-15 or Carbine Automatic Rifle (I've also heard Colt but I think it's Carbine) The first CAR-15, the model 609 had a 10.5 inch barrel IIRC but it was too loud and blinding. So the XM-177 version (Experimental Model 177) came out which paved the way for the M4 design with the ribbed handguards and updated retractable stock. In addition a flash suppressor was implemented to reduce the muzzle blast. The barrel was still too short for the 5.56 round to fire properly so they lengthened it to 11.5 inches and designated it XM-177e2 which is the model in BFV. There are countless variants of the CAR-15. The CAR-15 used in Platoon, for example, is a model 653 CAR-15. Instead of the XM177 flash suppressor and the 11.5 inch barrel it has the M16 flashhider and a 14.5 inch barrel. The infamous BHD CAR-15 is the M733 (11.5 inch) and the M725 (14.5 inch) and have the A2 receiver. The CAR-15 was never an official weapon but was in constant use by Special Forces and the like. The M4 Carbine was released in 1994 and the CAR-15 legacy came to an end. The M4 Carbine is basically an M16a2 Carbine. The M4a1 Carbine has full auto as opposed to the M4's 3 round burst and has a detachable carrying handle for mounting optics. But the M4a1 Carbine isn't perfect. Reports indicate the barrel overheats too much. I think it's because it's a light barrel so it overheats quicker while the heavier pencil barrel such as in the M725 Carbine or the M16a2 take a longer time to overheat and cool down. Wise Bobo what do you think?
Cambo you dont got eny eyes fopr details look at the but Stock and the pipe
i was thinking of the xm147, now hush young Werkan and get back to your video games.
umm who really cares wether the CAR-15 isn't the exact one as long as it looks the same i dont care
We have had this debate in my clan. They insist that it is a CAR-15, because that is what it says in the game ( i know :S). It is an XM177 (i carried one while serving with 0DA-215, 5th Special Forces Group. Ft. Bragg, NC). The C stands for compact. The AR is a civilian or non-fully automatic weapon (it lacks the selector). thus the Compact semi-Automatic Rifle - 15 is the civilian modle. While it is possible to add 'Full-Auto' kit to it, it was not designed for it. The CAR-15 also lacks the forward assist. It can not be a carbine, as a carbine is defined as a rifle that fire pistol ammo. The XM177 fires the 5.56 or .223 rifle ammo. The notice given to SF's use of the weapon led to the M4. These are the only 2 'chopped' M-16 that the army as officially used.
