The new M&P 15 Volunteer XV Pro M-LOK is built on a mid-length gas system with a 16-inch threaded barrel and chambered in 6mm ARC to make it a high-speed deer hunter made in the USA.

The stock is a B5 Systems SOPMOD, and the grip is a B5 P-Grip. A 15-inch aluminum S&W M-LOK fore-end includes a 2-inch rail section and M-LOK rail covers. Sights front and rear are Williams Gun Sight Tactical folding units, but a riflescope is right at home on the flat-top.
