This. You'll want something that functions the same (eg safety, bolt catch/release, magazine release, charging handle), and is the same length. An M16A1 with some parts changes will fulfill the drilling duties of a C7 just fine.
However, the C7 is mostly ambidextrous, so you'll need to install that stuff.

If you've got a KJW, or have a KJW lined up, it'll work just fine as your base. I prefer KJW M4s over WETTIs.

Edit: Just an FYI, if you aren't aware of the difference between the M16 and the C7, take a look at this thread:

There's not much difference, and this thread will help you know what you need to modify to get to a C7. You can use your judgement on whether or not you need to make the actual modification in order to perform your drills.
