The M4 Carbine has been used for close quarters operations where the M16 would be too long and bulky to use effectively. It has been admired for being a compact, light, customizable, and accurate weapons platform. This has come at the cost of reliability and maintainability. Failure to maintain the M4 causes malfunctions. This became apparent as it saw continued use in the sandy environments of Iraq and Afghanistan. Despite this, soldiers who keep their M4s clean and functioning find it to be an exceptional carbine. In post-combat surveys, 94 percent of soldiers rated the M4 as an effective weapons system.

Famous quotes containing the word performance:
“Nobody can misunderstand a boy like his own mother.... Mothers at present can bring children into the world, but this performance is apt to mark the end of their capacities. They cant even attend to the elementary animal requirements of their offspring. It is quite surprising how many children survive in spite of their mothers.”
—Norman Douglas (18681952)
“The child to be concerned about is the one who is actively unhappy, [in school].... In the long run, a childs emotional development has a far greater impact on his life than his school performance or the curriculums richness, so it is wise to do everything possible to change a situation in which a child is suffering excessively.”
—Dorothy H. Cohen (20th century)
“Still be kind,
And eke out our performance with your mind.”
—William Shakespeare (15641616)
