** Traded **

Location= Oroville/Chico. Approx 1 hr north of Sac.

Iím selling my M&P 15FT (again) as my XCR is on its way. She now has 800-1000 rounds through her.

I have installed an ARES GSR-35 piston kit in her with approx 500 rounds through it. With the piston it is amazingly clean to shoot.

She is wearing Troy handguards, and Troy back up iron sights. This is an FT model (no flash hider). The rifle will come with one 10/30 magazine or a short 10 round magazine. Stored in the CAA stocks compartment is the key for the installed Radlock so you can change to a detachable magazine rifle if you go out of state or install a 22lr conversion kit.

Optics and Grippod are not included, we are just talking about the rifle.

Rifle is $1500 cash FTF with the gas system, $1750 cash FTF with the piston.
If the buyer wants the piston kit, the rifle will come with all extra parts from the conversion (carrier, hand guards, gas tube, ect.)

I will sell the gas system separately for $250 but that is only if the buyer does not want it with the rifle.

If the buyer is interested I have a Spikes 22lr conversion kit I can add to the package for $200 more. The kit has had a custom few cuts made to it to allow it to function with the piston system. It has approx 500 rounds through her and can be ran dry as not to attract crud in your receiver and shorten range time. She lovers Fed Bulk pack. The kit will come with one 27 round rebuild kit, buyer is responsible for obtaining 10 round magazines and following all California laws.

As trades go, I would consider a S&W 317, HK 45 (USP or new non listed one) plus cash.
Willing to listen to other trade offers.
Cash would be king.
Will ship if FFL accepts from non FFL for $25.

To answer some popular PMs:
1. Yes I'm interested/willing to listen to other firearm trades.
2. If a firearm trade in involved, I would prefer to travel no farther north then Red Bluff and south then Sacramento. Please have an FFL in mind as I do not know of any in these areas (except Ten Ring in Red Bluff).
3. No, I did not see any ill effects with accuracy after installing the piston.

The top two pictures are after a range day of 400-ish rounds of Wolf to test for cleanness. Needless to say, it was.


For those interested in the piston kit. These are the left over/ non used parts. Yes, If you wanted to you could take the piston out and sell it for more. The kit could be removed in under 10 minutes. It takes longer to take the hand guards off then do the conversion. That would be your choice, I personally like the rifle with the kit.


I used a 1/2 mill ball to do the custom fitting for the rail. You can not tell it is a piston gun from the outside, unless you look at the front.


If there are any other pictures you want to see, let me know and I can post them.
Thanks for looking.

If the buyer does not want the piston system, you are first in line.
