HBAR M16A1s?
 
Watching Missing in Action right now and noticed something about the M16s used by Braddock and Tuck in that they appear to have HBAR barrels.

See here how the flash hider is a larger diameter than the barrel?

Well, compare that to the M16 below.

That's definitely not an A1 profile barrel.

As Missing in Action was filmed on Philippines, this may be Elisco Tools produced Colt 611P that has HBAR barrel. Fits perfectly, as it seems to me.

Hmmm, if it's a 611P, then Elisco must have gotten the rights to build those pretty quickly. In 1984, HBAR-profile barrels were pretty new to the market (in the United States, they would have only just been introduced).
