Smith and Wesson's AR

Just picked up the latest copy of Guns and Ammo- featuring a review of a new Smith and Wesson Military and Police model, the AR-clone "M&P 15".

I haven't yet read the review but I did have a quick peek at the SW website- no mention of the carbine there as yet other than this press release. There are going to be two versions available- a standard and a "tactical" package with railed fore-end and folding sights. It's an interesting development. Sadly they do not seem to have had the foresight to include a gas piston.
