Hi,

I recently bought a S&W M&P15TS. I ordered it back in early April from OMB for $1125 - $100 MIR. It arrived at my FFL about 10 days ago. I own and/or have owned several other M&P15's, including the regular M&P15, M&P15A, M&P15OR, and M&P15T.

The TS is awesome! Much lighter than the regular T (sorry I dont have an accuate scale to post numbers). The Troy TRX Extreme is a very small diameter rail system - which makes getting a good grip on the rail very easy compared to the Troy MRF-MX rail on the T. The barrel is 1/7, 14.5" long with a pinned FH. Came with Magpul MOE grip, BUIS, and CTR stock. Staking is excellent.

I have not shot it yet - so I cannot comment on that. But as far as looks - this is the best rifle in the current S&W lineup. And at $1025 after MIR is an excellent value when you consider the quality of the components.

Oh forgot to ask: the rifle came with a Magpul CTR stock. I thought they had QD fitting holes for QD slings but they do not. I tried attaching my GG&G Sling Thing and it does not really fit as the attachment point on the CTR is much thicker than a CAR stock. What do you suggest as a way to attach my rear QD sling fitting?

PS: for up front I'm waiting for the Troy QD fitting socket that threads into a rail hole.

Nice rifle.

The stock you show is a Magpul MOE not a CTR, the CTR has a friction lock and QD sockets other wise they are pretty much the same.

Looks like a great rifle at an excellent price, congrats.

Oh OK thanks for straightening me out on the stock. I've only had CAR stocks before and this is a slight improvement (less wobble/rattle).

Looking forward to an AAR!
