If you could only have one assault rifle, to use as an all round weapon in combat, which would you chose?

I beg to differ, it is a combat rifle, and define assault rifle for me. if it means fully automatic then the SAW is an assault rifle.

Anyway, I would choose the M16A3 rifle. It's an M16A2 with piccatany rails and full automatic instead of burst capability.
