The M4A1 entered service with the IDF SF in the late 1990's, followed by a mass issue of the M4A1 in 2002 when the weapon became the IDF standard issue assault rifle for all infantry oriented units including both SF and regular units units. In a typical IDF fashion, many weapons are actually hybrids, featuring M4A1 uppers and CAR15 lowers.

The M4A1partially replaced by the Micro Tavor in recent years within some infantry and SF units. However, it will likely remain the dominant platform with SF units for years to come.
