What do you mean "back"?!?! You only have 1 post
david this is Sig?
Colt M4A1 Carbine
the Gerup Gerak Khas have been using M4...all this time, never heard any of them complain because of the gas blowback?
those are not Colt M4A1, but older carbines (Model 653?)
Yes, it's the CAR15A1 also known as M16A1 Carbine also known as Colt M653.
It's still in service with the GGK as could be seen on photos from Timor Leste last year:
It's a Bushmaster Carbon 15.david this is Sig?
any significant differences between the models of the same family? does it mean, different model, different type of barrel / upper receiver ?

The following weapons of the "AR-15 family" are in service with Malaysia (or will be):
- former standard-issue infantry rifle of all branches of Malaysian Armed forces (now mostly replaced by Steyr AUG A1).
This is the standard rifle that has also been the US standard rifle (20"/500 mm barrel, Iron sights, semi and full-auto). Check Wikipedia or any other side.
(Great pic, I know...)
- future standard infantry rifle (replace AUG and M16A1). Not yet in service!
14,5" / 368 mm barrel, semi and full auto. Not yet known if it will receive any rails, sights etc.
No pics yet (in the hands of Malaysian soldiers )
- in use with GGK (army special forces)
14,5" / 368mm barrel, semi and full-auto. Formely iron sights only, but have been modified with some sight/scope (dunno, which one. I'm not so familiar with scopes).
Edit/ Another picture shows it with an EOTech (Model 550 or 510, I think):
- in use with PASKAL (Navy Special Forces)
16" / 40mm barrel, semi and full auto, carry handle/rear sight mounted on rail (therefore can be replaced with a special sight)
Bushmaster Carbon 15 Flat-Top Carbine
- in use with PASKAU (Air Force Special Forces)
11,5" / 28mm barrel, semi and full auto, no forward assist, no carry handle, flip iron sights, used with a EOTech (again, Model 550 or 510) sight by PASKAU, and a couple of other rails and equipment.

Ooops, my fault
Well, is this the final configuration that will be purchased, or just a test model or so?
Can anyone identify the sight on that M4?
Red Dot System with 3x Magnification on one rail.....and some sort of laser pointer?
david thanks for the clarification of the CAR15A1
quote: : Thanks to reader N. Mohamed, we now know that in 2005, MINDEF purchased 20 Amraams from the US. The matter was reported to the UN Conventional Arms Register.
What is the UN Conventional Arms Register? According to its website:
On 6 December 1991, the General Assembly adopted resolution 46/36 L entitled “Transparency in armaments”, which requested the Secretary-General to establish and maintain at United Nations Headquarters in New York a universal and non-discriminatory Register of Conventional Arms, to include data on international arms transfers as well as information provided by Member States on military holdings, procurement through national production and relevant policies.
The Register comprises seven categories of major conventional arms, namely, battle tanks, armored combat vehicles, large-calibre artillery systems, combat aircraft, attack helicopters, warships (including submarines) as well as missiles and missile-launchers. It has been in operation with effect from calendar year 1992. Thus far, a total of 170 Member States have reported to the Register one or more times. The Register captures the great bulk of the global arms trade in the categories of conventional weapons covered by it.
sorry guys its low res...i will post a higher res next time.
M4 for malaysian armed forces. The M4 testing and evaluation. What you see here is probably what the MAF will use.
