    I had no idea Iran made their own......

    Anyone have proof of this? I figured they traded oil for them with russia, or china? Do they actually have their own plant producing them? Pics? Anyone handled one before?

    Those sure look Chinese to me. The M16A1 photo at teh same site is claimed to be Irainian made too, but sure looks like the Norinco version.

    S-5.56 5.56 mm assault rifle (Iran), Rifles

    Development
    In March 2001, the Defence Industries Organization (DIO) of Iran announced that it was offering the S-5.56 automatic rifle. Although it has been claimed that the weapon is a local development, this rifle appears to be a direct copy of the Chinese Type CQ rifle, which in turn is a Chinese clone of the US M16. The Iranian S-5.56 is reported to be in production and is offered for export sales.

    Description
    It is assumed that the S-5.56 is identical in operation to the M16. As with the Type CQ, the only visual change from the original M16 is in the revised pistol-grip outline and a cosmetic change to the profile of the fore-end. However, the S-5.56 is available in two versions (see below).The rearsight consists of a flip-over twin-leaf arrangement. With the 'close' half of the rear aperture sight raised, the sight is suitable for targets at ranges up to 300 m. Flipping over to the 'far' sight allows targets to be engaged at ranges from 300 to 500 m.Available accessories include a bayonet and an optical sight to be mounted over the sight bracket/carrying handle.

    They look like Chinese clones. No threads on the muzzle to reduce manufacturing costs, I imagine.

    Give them another yr or two and they will will be producing a copy of that drone our gov just lost over there along with their first nuke, our current so-called leader wont lift a damn finger over it,neither he or Bush for that matter.,hell its beginning to look like he hit the wrong country to me(Bush). I knew something was up right after 9/11 when Iran offered us help,more like buying time. Hell this rifle aint crap compared to whats going on over in the middle east right now,Arab spring my ass. Gonna be an Arab uprising worldwide in a few yrs and that is a given. I dont buy a damn thing coming out of there or some of our own gov B/S about whats going on,nope, not one bit.
