Malaysia’s SME Ordnance M4 Carbine

    Way back in 2007 I reported that Malaysia was switching from locally manufactured Steyr AUG carbines to M4 Carbines. Malaysian arms and ordnance manufacturer SME Ordnance obtained a license from Colt Defense to produce the rifle for Malaysian consumption and for export to South East Asia countries. Five years later, this is the first photo of the SME Ordnance M4 Carbine I have seen …

    It looks like a fairly uninspired derivative of the M4A1, although I do like the mini-suppressor. (or is that some sort of blank firing adapter?).
