I'm not a gun owner but isn't an ar15 just a civilian variant of an m4?

Tuesday 22nd of November 2022

@TheRealDooty,The M4 is the carbine version of the M16, which is based off the original ArmaLite AR-15 from the Vietnam war

The Basilisk is NOT a .357 magnum by the fact that in-game it says it's chambered in .500
