  1. This is certainly a great graphic, but a number of stats seem way off. For one, the M4’s range is certainly not greater than the M14. Also, the rates of fire are decieving, accurate, sustained fire by any of the assault rifles (or even the Garand) would only be between 20-30 rpm at the maximum, 15 rpm being the figure accepted by the US Army for the M4.
