I was going to suggest the Colt.

according to the M&P website:

Compatible with most standard AR15 components and accessories


Although I am confused as to why you would need an extra clip......

"greedy", as compared to me - impatient (got the Colt, in hand, 2 hours after leaving the house)

thanks for the congrats  ( although I know it was tongue-in-cheek, the LGS is about 25 min away, then the paperwork)

now to decide which one of my RDS' to put atop.....Spark II or Trij RMR

Nothing tongue in cheek about the congrats, I think you made a good choice.

I like AR's, I got 3 of 'em.
Two of them are .mil surplus Colt uppers, my carbine is a milspec Daniel Defense.

I am probably as impatient as you are, when I want something,
I hate waiting.

The only thing that was tongue in cheek was the 2hrs? part.......   

The only disagreement I think we had was the echo trigger....
and there is certainly nothing wrong with he trigger, seems to work well and gets great reviews.

I bid for and won the bidding for the Fostech Echo trigger - hopefully it'll be here this coming week.  will then get it to the Gunsmith at my LGS and have it installed and he and I will test fire it

life appears to be "good"

"the trigger" arrived today (a day late, thanks usps  :thumbsdown:)

the "package" (AR, trigger, clips & ammo) are with the Gunsmith (and my oh my was he happy to get it - said he'd been waiting for "someone" to bring one in)

so, another "wait" begins - will get some telephone video when it's set up and running

picked up the AR and it's new Fostech Echo trigger this morning - Gunsmith said a bit of milling was needed (in the rifle) in order for it to "drop in" - he also burned some of the ammo that I left with him

I'm such a cheapskate that I'll wait until next Monday to shoot it, on 1/2 price Monday - won't be more than "pew pew" 'cause the range doesn't allow rapid fire - I'll have to wait on that until I get to a suitable outdoor range

meantime I'll be loading clips

did a short report on the AR/Binary trigger firing somewhere....?  but, this thing is awesome !  I managed to do a bunch of pew-pews at the local indoor range and a number of pew-pew-pew-pews but I didn't want to push their letting me "rapid fire" the thing

I want to "do" an ammo dump of a 30rd clip, just 1 time - my BIL has access to a private range over west of San Antonio that I'll visit - but, in the meantime, I'll just do the short bursts locally

this will now have a permanent place alongside the nightstand

but I've just gotta say.....if you ever have the chance to shoot with this set-up, do it
