I have a 15 inch VTAC on my M&P 15 OR. I'm really happy with it. You would need to change to a low profile gas block.

I use the Troy, it's a drop in and also a free float. Only mod you have to do is remove the sling swivel.

Yes indeed. In fact, I added a laser on top in front of the sight and a light on the bottom when I'm not using my bipod.
