SA-16 Rifles

The SA-16A2 from Springfield Armory® is a faithful recreation of the M-16A2, one of the most capable and iconic rifles in history. Featuring a variety of upgrades over its predecessor, the M-16A2 was designed for increased performance and accuracy. These upgrades had an immediate effect on the battlefield and the unmistakable profile of this legendary firearm was soon seen across the globe. Built to exacting standards, the SA-16A2 offers shooters the opportunity to own a piece of history while enjoying the performance and reliability of a modern firearm.


The SA-16A2 pays homage to the venerable M-16A2 service rifle. Its adoption marked a transition towards modernized infantry weaponry, enhancing effectiveness and reshaping combat tactics, leaving an enduring impact on military operations.


When first introduced in the 1950s, the AR-pattern design featured a radically unique carry handle as part of the upper receiver. The integrated rear sight on the carry handle of the SA-16A2 is adjustable for windage and elevation, while its dual aperture design facilitates accurate shooting at varying distances.

The forend houses the 20” chrome-lined barrel with a 1:7” twist and M4 feed ramps as well as a rifle-length gas system, for both accuracy and reliability.
