Default S&w mp 15

So i've found a guy who has an MP15 model 811013 that he wants to trade me for one of my AKs. Anyone here have any experience with them? I've always been a fan of S&W pistols but don't have any experience with their rifles.

Do you need a compliant AR?

Looks like you're talking about a compliant model:

Also what kind of AK are you talking about?

Yeah it's compliant, from what i understand though the only difference between compliant and non-compliant is that the barrel is made so you can't install a suppressor and it only has a 10 rnd mag, he does have a 30 rnd for it though.

The AK is a centurion 39 sporter

And fixed stock. It also isn't threaded for a muzzle device.

Round count, condition, etc. of each?

Don't know the round count on the AR but it's in good shape, doesn't look like it's spent much time outside the gun cabinet.

I've only put about 400 rounds through the AK and it's in fantastic condition, hasn't seen nearly as much abuse as my other AKs lol

I would ask some questions about the AR before getting serious about a trade.

Oh yeah, absolutely. I was just curious if anyone had any experience with these rifles.

I was thinking after throwing a nice adjustable stock on it it'd be a good lower to put a BCM upper on for a shtf rifle, and still have the original for an everday plinker

You can build up a nice lower for $250 or so or even buy a blemished BCM complete lower for not much more. I think I'd go that route unless you're sure about the S&W. I wouldn't be interested in a compliant AR unless I had a extended visit in a ban state. Anyway, find out the particulars and do what's best for you...
