I'm assuming for that price and with those additions, the gun is used. If it is you would have to know the round count and overall condition before you could accurately determine if it's worth the asking price. If it's new, it would be an absolute steal.

You really need to figure out what model it is.. A lot of people just assume the M&P ar rifles are all the same.. Look on the S&W site and you will see over a dozen variations. If its a sport with an Eotech then its not that good of a deal, if its a M&P 15t ( tactical Retail around $1600 ) then its a smoking deal.. Even if its a standard model they are mostly in the 1k range.

I would suggest get the model or a couple pics of each side and then figure out the model, condition, round count, how many mags with it, case ect ect ..

If the gun in question is new, there is no doubt it has a Delta Ring forend, and pretty much standard everything else. Bass Pro isn't know for selling to the ninjas as it is the masses. It's only recently they even started selling AR-15's. One thing to check for is if the gun has a forward assist. Anything else you can add as you feel you need to.

I assume the EOTech model will be the 512.. as its the cheapest. Itself cost $370-400 from online retailers. Hopefully the rifle is not the Sport model.

If it's a plain Jane M&P 15 with a forward assist, they go for around a grand here. (They've all gone up slightly as the election nears). The big stores like Cabela's and Bass Pro will occasionally have them on sale for $799.00. They sell out quickly when they do. If the one you are talking about is that same model with an EO-Tech, I'd grab it.
