The Walthers were the only guns in the game that were called by their real names.

Everyone here gets miffed when someone refers to a Type 56 as an AK-47, right? Chinese manufacturer, Russian design. Well, I reserve the right to get miffed when someone refers to a C8FTHB as an M4 and lecture that person. Just like there are external differences between the Type 56 and AK-47 to warrant them being separate guns, there are external differences between a C8FTHB and an M4 which warrant them being separate guns.

They just call it something else. The UK uses the Benelli M4 but call it something else while the US military calls it the M1014 even though it's the same gun
Because it is the same gun, inside and out, with the only difference (AFAIK) being a separate Land Force designation, which isn't the case with the C8FTHB (or L119A1) and the M4.

M4


C8FTHB/L119A1
