New AR from Smith and Wesson

Check out the Gun Nuts Radio Blog for a preview look at Smith & Wesson’s latest addition to their M&P-15 line of rifles, the M&P-15R, chambered in 5.45×39, the Russian service rifle cartridge.

I don’t own any ARs right now, but since I’m getting in the market, I’ll add this one to my list just for the cool factor it has.

  1. ‘since I’m getting in the market, I’ll add this one to my list just for the cool factor it has.’

    Build your own. Cheaper and you get all the bells and whistles you want. And you might learn something.

  2. Well since Smif&Weeeeeson is offering it as a complete upper assembly, I might just do that.

    I figure get a good quality lower and mate the two of them, and I’ll have all the surplus blasty-blasty a boy could want.

  3. I’ve been thinking about buying the same upper. I wonder how the gas system will hold up to the corrosive ammo?

    FYI: AimSurplus has some good deals on 5.45×39.
