Yes, there are several uppers you can put on the weapon. There are even .50 BMG uppers for the AR. It all depends on what you want to shoot and how much are you willing to pay.

The Smith & Wesson M&P Sport AR-15 Rifle is set up to mil-spec and can take after market uppers. Your selection of upper will depend on what caliber you are wanted to change to.

Basically , that's it. One mag. No dust cover, no forward release etc. I had mine for about a year..., never had a problem. By it being so basic, it allows you to have more to spend to upgrade it the way you want. It's a great gun, FYI, I had over 12 years in the military dealing with the M-16.

Yes, the M&P-15 Sport handles both the 5.56 NATO rounds and the .223 Remington rounds. It has a 1 in 8" twist barrel and mine has shot very accurately with bullets from 40 gr up to 55 gr. I have some 73 gr Hornady A-Maxes loaded but haven't tried them yet.
They should work fine with the 1 in 8" twist.

The Smith and Wesson AR15 (291367) is not California compliant with a 30rd. magazine. This gun is only sold through a retail store like Reno, Nevada. You might be able to get it California compliant through the store. This weapon can only be sold through a retail store, but it can be shipped to an FFL dealer near you if they are willing to accept the weapon.

We carry the 5.56mm NATO ammunition for the Smith & Wesson M&P™ Sport AR-15 Rifle (please see following link). You can also shoot .223 Remington ammunition with this rifle. However, the bullet jacket of the .223 Remington may not be hard enough or thick enough, it may disintegrate upon leaving the barrel. Please refer to the Speer reloading manual #14 page 196.

i just got the AR a few days ago...

1.The front sight seems be be attached to the barrel. But when I used my scope on the AR (4-16X50), you don't even notice the front sight at all.

2. I was told that it can be replaced. It does break down like other AR's.

3. its a composite, but strong

4. I'm not sure, but they do make kits like you have mentioned.

If your question is whether or not this will kill a coyote, then the answer is "yes." As the expert said, each state has different laws regarding hunting. In my state you can use an AR to hunt coyotes or feral swine.

And it will kill both.
