Design and Performance


The Carbine Rifle has a combination of features from multiple Assault Rifles like the Remington R5 RGP, Honey Badger, SR-25, Heckler & Koch HK416 and the Daniel Defense DDM4V7. The Vim Feuer logo along with the ammo type and size is inscribed on both sides of the gun. The safe mode switch is on the right side of the gun. The gun has Picatinny rails for attachments. It has dual mounted iron sights on the Picatinny rails.


(The Carbine Rifle in first person perspective)


The Carbine Rifle performs very well as an assault rifle. It can take out targets even at medium to long ranges with accuracy especially if the scope and grip attachments are used. It can take out pedestrians in a single shot at close to medium range and two shots at longer ranges. Targets with armor can be killed by 3 shots to the body. This gun can be fitted with a grip, flashlight, scope and suppressor. Its extended clip with a 60 round capacity is very helpful in gunfights and gives a great advantage. Reload time is however very quick and does not pose a disadvantage.

Locations


  • Can be purchased at Ammu-Nation for $2,100 after completing The Jewel Store Job. ( If u didn't already unlock it in the mission itself )

  • The Carbine is the first weapon to be used in the game. It is used by Michael and Trevor during the Prologue.

  • The Carbine Rifle is equipped by the protagonists in the Loud approach for the Jewel Store Job, Monkey Business, Trevor Philips Industries, Blitz Play and The Bureau Raid.

  • Can be found outside one of the trailers at Stab City.

  • Used by LSPD officers patrolling the airport, San Andreas State Prison Authority guards around Bolingbroke Penitentiary, NOOSE officers during wanted levels (those from police SUVs and Police Mavericks) and the Military.

  • Merryweather mercenaries will also use the Carbine Rifle against the player during the missions they are featured in.


Trivia


  • Adding the suppressor to the Carbine Rifle seems to convert the barrel into an integral suppressor. This is slightly reminiscent of the AAC Honey Badger assault rifle, which is also an M4 variant that has an integral suppressor.

  • When customized with a scope attachment, the iron sights are not removed or flipped down; this is highly impractical as the iron sights would obstruct the viewing field of the scope. This is most likely an oversight by Rockstar. In the updated GTA V for next gen consoles, the sights are correctly flipped down, but only in first person view.

  • There are a few artworks of Michael holding an M4 CQBR with an M68 CCO red dot sight and sound suppressor. However, said weapon never appears in-game.

  • The name "Carbine Rifle" used in GTA IV and GTA V is a contradiction in terms, as "carbine" and "rifle" represent two mutually-exclusive categories. A carbine is a firearm with a barrel length shorter than a rifle or musket, but longer than a pistol's.
