King Arms is expanding their range of Smith & Wesson Military & Police M&P15 line of AEGs. King Arms first M&P rifle was the M&P15 MOE Flat Dark Earth, they are now complimenting it with the M&P15T, M&P15X and M&P15PSX.
First is the M&P15T, S&W’s 16" barrelled version with it’s 10" free-float Modular Rail Foreend (MRF), unfortunately King Arms, in it’s version, cuts it short with a 14" barrel but all other features appear to be faithfully replicated such as the front and rear Troy style Folding Battle Sights and supplied rail covers. FPS is around the 320-240 mark.
Next is the M&P15X, S&W’s 16" barrelled version with it’s new drop-in Tactical Rail Handguard and A2 front sight. King Arms has expressed creative freedom and fitted its version with a carbine length 10.5" barrel but all other features are faithfully replicated such as the Troy style rear Folding Battle Sight. FPS is 320-340.
Lastly is the M&P15PSX, S&W’s Gas Piston version of the M&P15, like the M&P15T King Arms version is shy of 2 inches in the barrel department. The Gas Piston is replicated albeit with a bastardized integrated front sight and includes the Troy style rear Folding Battle Sight. FPS is 320-240.
I’m not normally a stickler for realism but King Arms has used the model nomenclature of the real steel line of M&P15’s so it’s puzzling why they strayed from the features. All the AEG’s have fully licensed S&W trademarks faithfully replicated in all the right places and each model has a unique serial number. Hop-up is adjustable from the bolt locked back which features a realistic bolt release. All models come with a PEQ-15 battery box. No price or date yet.
