Brazilian small arms manufacturer Forjas Taurus is another entrant in this apparently crowded market segment with its T4 (or FAT 556, in some earlier fact sheets), an M4 clone fully manufactured in the company’s facilities now concentrated in the city of São Leopoldo, Brazil. The Taurus T4 is based on the US M4 5.56×45 mm carbine and is available in three versions with two different barrel lengths. All come with six-position telescopic stocks and Picatinny accessory rails. The Taurus T4 rifle is ideal for military and police use.

Forjas Taurus is a manufacturing conglomerate based in São Leopoldo, in the Brazilian state of Rio Grande do Sul. Founded as a tool and die manufacturer, the company now consists of divisions focusing on firearms, metals manufacturing, plastics, body armor, helmets, and civil construction. Taurus is a long-time manufacturer of revolvers (since the 1950s) and semi-auto pistols (1980s), having also ventured in the field of submachine guns (Beretta M12 variants and joint ventures with Chile’s FAMAE) and pistol-caliber carbines (also in collaboration with the Chilean company). In order to more effectively tap the U.S. market, the company created a subsidiary, Taurus International Manufacturing Incorporated, also known as Taurus USA, in 1984.
