We just received this gorgeous suppressed SBR from Spikes Tactical. It is one of the most gorgeous SBR's I've ever seen. If Apple made a SBR, it would be this! I have more photos including the case and accessories. The BCG is nickel boron coated and lightened.
The team at Spikes really didn't overlook any detail. The grip and AFG are hand stippled. There is a QD mount where the buffer tube mounts to the lower receiver along with another two on each side of the quad rail plus multiple mounting options on the stock.
We missed taking a photo of of the top of the upper receiver with the rear site folded down but Spikes gave great attention to the positioning and height of the rear sight. When it is folded down, it meets evenly with the top rear of the upper receiver so closely that there is virtually no gap showing. We'll take and post a photo of that next week.
All the controls on the rifle are ambidextrous including the safety, mag release and bolt release (it doesn't allow you to lock the bolt open unfortunately).
Enjoy the photos! We'll have it listed on our online store within a few days.

Here is the video from Truth about Guns:
The press release is as follows:
BREAKING: FNH USA Releases New Guns, Including Semi-Auto M249, M4, M16
By Nick Leghorn on April 9, 2015
We are standing at the FNH USA booth here at the NRA show before the doors even open to get the scoop on some cool new guns being announced that have never even been rumored to exist. New for 2015, FN is releasing semi auto versions of all their military firearms including as-issued M4, M16, and even a true blue M249. Yes, really! Presser (AND VIDEO!) after the jump. . .
(McLean, VA – April 10, 2015) FNH USA is excited to announce that three new products, including a brand-new product line, will be making their first appearance on the FNH USA Booth #2324 at the 2015 NRA Annual Meetings in Nashville, TN. Expected to be released in the Fall of 2015 are the mil-spec FN M249S™, a semi-automatic version of the U.S. Military’s M249 SAW light machinegun and two new additions to the company’s modern sporting rifle line, the FN 15™ M4 and M16 Military Collector Series.
“FNH USA has a unique history of commercializing and releasing to U.S. firearms buyers products that were originally developed for military or tactical applications,” said Mark Cherpes, President and CEO of FN America, LLC. “We are proud to continue that tradition with the introduction of the FN 15™ Military Collector Series and the semi-auto FN M249S™.”
The FN M249S, a semi-automatic version of the M249 SAW light machinegun, was originally developed by FN Herstal as the FN MINIMI® and adopted by the U.S. Military in 1988. The rifle features the signature 20.5-inch FN cold hammer-forged, chrome-lined barrel and operates from a closed bolt position. Chambered in 5.56x45mm NATO, the rifle will accept both magazine and linked ammunition belt and offers a 4.5-6.5 pound trigger pull out-of-the-box.
FN 15™ Military Collector Series
The FN 15™ Military Collector’s Series M4 and M16 bring to market military replica rifles made to FN’s exacting specifications. The semi-automatic rifles are chambered in 5.56x45mm NATO and feature M4 -profile 16 and 20-inch 1:7” RH, button broached and chrome-lined barrels, respectively. Each UID-labeled lower receiver is equipped with an ambidextrous selector switch, just like its select-fire big brother.

Back in December we reported that Sig had discontinued stand along PSB sales. This was a serious annoyance to dealers and consumers because many don't want the pre-packged kit (which included the buffer tube, buffer, spring, and the brace itself) because they either had the parts or wanted to use less expensive parts.
It seems that the backlash or lack of sales on the new kits has caused Sig to recant and roll back the change. Braces are once again available without having to buy a kit.
Additionally the braces are available in six configurations
