I'm not sure if this question has been asked (It probably has) But does KWA have any plans to make a full rifle length LM4? Personally I was psyched about the LM4, and I was probably the first one on the East coast to buy one. But, What I would really love would be a full sized M16a3.

So I was just wondering if anything like that was in the works. Or is there some way to do that already with aftermarket parts?

I'm fairly sure it's in the works for next year.

From what I've heard, you can expect it early next year. Nothing official has been said yet though.

Assuming it is compatible with the Lm4 lower, I think they should sell the upper receiver separate. ;)

Thing is, the LM16 may be a M16A4 variant so the firing controls would allow for three round burst.

3 round burst M16 variant would be very nice but I haven't heard anything about it. Not saying that I know everything KWA plans to do.

KWA usually release stuff with KSC couple of month in advance,
The M4 GBB line was released as followed:
M4
M4 w/ RAS
CQBR
Magpul MOE M4

I personally don't think there will be a M16 version in the near future.

Is there a possibility that I could replace the original outer barrel with a Madbull Daniel Defense 20" outer? I don't mind doing a bit of hacksawing/dremel work if necessary.

No plan for this year... no one knows what's coming next year.  Everything we do is hush hush...
