I don't think there is a gl
I don't think there is a gl-ar150M model.   I've only seen a GL-AR150.   The firmware for it is in the nightly build directory.

That is the GL-iNet 6416, which is legacy model of the GL-AR150
The GL-iNet 6416 has 16MB Flash and 64MB of RAM and has a nearly identical OpenWRT load as the GL-AR150. You could try to flash it with the AR150 firmware, but I'm not sure it would load. Those GL-6416 routers are no longer supported, but there a ton of them out there. They are all internal antenna versions, but have 2 Ethernet ports and a USB port just like the GL-AR150.
If the .bin file from the AR150 loads on it, I would give it a shot. These devices are easy to get back to their original firmware if it doesn't work.
