The M16, M4, A3, A2, and AR-15 type rifles are made by about a dozen companies. Normally the 9mm Luger is priced the same as the .223 (5.56mm) centerfire rifle. It may be a better choice to get the .223 as it is twice as powerful, even though 9mm ammo is cheaper.

Kel-Tec SUB-2000: The SUB-2000 is a compact autoloading rifle chambered in either 9mm Luger or .40 S&W, and it is a great addition for anyone who owns a handgun in these calibers.
