Default m&p 15 sport

What does everyone think about the m&p and is it necessary to spend the extra money on a colt or other high dollar ar

The standard response... what is the intended purpose?

S&W makes good products. I have never shot one of their AR's. Spend a week on this forum and you will have a list of choices.

What it was originally for was to force a reluctant cartridge into the chamber. Since there is no bolt handle like on a garand or m1a some folks thought that the m16 needed a way to jam shells into a chamber.

If you have a failure to fully chamber a round do NOT use the forward assist. Eject the round and use a fresh one. Inspect the chamber and bore for blockage. This is true of any autoloader pistol or rifle. Out of spec ammo can cause fail to chamber again do not use the assist eject the round inspect chamber.

i'm just getting into AR's, so i'm no expert. but i recently purchased the M&P sport and i have had great experiences so far.

i put a cheap(ish) red dot on it & its getting 1.5 groups at 50 (which is good for ME with no magnification). i have somewhere around 400 rounds through it with no failures so far. don't miss the forward assist or dust cover AT ALL.

the one thing i have noticed is, without a heat shield in the hand guard, it can get HOT. but you can just slap on a forward grip or replace the hand guard, so its really no big deal imo.

and i agree, they are hard to find. i had saved my pennies and went looking. academy did not have one in the state of texas..... everywhere online was sold out. i had to go to cabelas and pay $20 more. but the worst part was, had i not called to hold the gun, it would have been sold before i got there (within an hour).
