The Smith and Wesson M&P15 PS is a semi-automatic gas-piston-operated rifle chambered in 5.56 NATO and .223 Rem. Gas-piston-operated feeding systems capture gases released from the firing of a round and use this energy, through a piston, to push the bolt rearward, thereby ejecting the spent casing and chambering a new round. Smith and Wesson is the largest manufacturer of handguns in the United States. Headquartered in Springfield, Massachusetts, the company was founded in 1852 by Horace Smith and Daniel B. Wesson.
The M&P15 PS shares a number of common features with other Smith and Wesson tactical rifles, but differs in that it includes two Picatinny rails. a standard collapsable 6-position buttstock, and a tactical forend handguard.
The M&P15 PS features a 30-round detachable magazine, an aluminum receiver, a standard collapsable 6-position buttstock, and a tactical forend handguard. Chromed components include bolt carrier, bore, and gas key. The M&P15 PS also employs a hard coat black anodized protective finish.
The M&P15 PS is recommended by S&W for competitive, recreational, and law enforcement applications.
