SO18 Officers actually don't use the M4 depicted they use either a Heckler and Koch MP5 or the G36.

Sorry for the late reply, I used an M4 because it's the closest model I could find to a SIG 516 (which all Met ARV officers have started using). Although the MP5 and G36 have both been seen used largely in ARV roles within the past, the two weapons are now left to the static AFO's, such as diplomatic protection group and SO18 AFO's (not ARV officers as depicted in the image).
