Default Is this M&P-15 Genuine?

Hi there,
I got these pictures from a friend for a bran new M&P-15.

The markings seemed weird to me and made me doubt if it is genuine.

Sharing the pictures as they came.

Any ideas?

Markings are all wrong but they could have changed since I got mine years ago. What hasnít changed is full auto capability like the one in the pic has. Thatís not an M&P 15.

Looks like you’re posting screen shots of pics, or maybe you got screen shots of pics, but either way it’d be helpful to see the actual pics.

Assuming that it’s even a S&W product and a firearm, I don’t see S&W making a factory fake like this, but I guess there could have been a run for a government contract or police agency, could be not for the US market.

The ďautoĒ position and the markings do look a lot like an air soft.



Perhaps some idiot swapped out or painted the orange flash hider. If so, thatís a good way to get yourself shot!
