Mestic M-16 Assault Rifle
The M-16 is a versatile weapon produced by the Mid Rim company, Mestic
Munitions. The standard base model of the M-16 comes standard with a custom
fit strap, a special ammo clip belt, and a flash suppressor. It has two
modes, semi-automatic and full-automatic, which the user can switch between
by flipping a thumb switch above the handle.
Mestic sells several other versions of the M-16, each customized to specific
needs of particular uses, such as infantry, stealth, and heavy weapons
The stock M-16 is extremely popular among many planetary defense forces,
criminal organizations, police forces, and some not very well supplied New
Republic outposts. Kashan Industries, a strong rival of Mestic, has created
a duplicate rifle with a different look, a larger standard ammunition clip,
and a claim of overall superiority.
