Thinking of getting one does anyone own one? Any issues anything to stay away from? Any help would be great thanks.

Here in florida at the LGS there about $839 befor tax and background check. That's also what there were asking for them befor the price spike.

I guess that's better than $1200. Sounds like you know what you're looking at.

Decide whether you want the harder to find 1:8 twist or the new 1:9.

Well what's the difference? This will be my first AR I've never really cared for them but recently been thinking of getting one.

i have the M&P sport, and i have nothing bad to say about. in fact, i have always been a a bit "on the fence" as to if i even like the AR platform....but my M&P sport has been an outstanding rifle!

500 rounds through mine w/o a single hiccup (but i keep her extra clean ). using my cheap red dot, i can get about 1-1.5" groups at 50 yards. i really want to get a scope on it and see, but i think its going to be a pretty accurate little gun.

i keep hearing people talk about getting this gun for around $600....but i NEVER saw those prices. the cheapest i saw before the craze was $650 at academy, but they were NEVER in stock. they were $699 at cabelas, and i got a $20 off promotion, so i got mine for $679. i had seen both $749 and $799 before the craze. and of course, some online prices were like $619 or so, but even IF they were in stock, you still had to add the extra $ for FFL and shipping.

in my mind, its should be well under $800...but in this climate, under $900 might be ok. if you HAVE TO have it now, you will likely kick yourself in a few months when you see them dip back down to $650-750.

but as far as the sport goes, its a GREAT gun at a price that has many other AR fans trying to find excuses for why they paid so much more for theirs....

i agree. i saw many over $700, before this madness. i wouldn't have called it a GOOD price at the time, but it wasn't uncommon.

before the craziness, i would say an average sport price was $650 to $750. both representing the normal low and high end of what you would pay.

Agreed.
For the times is a great price on an AR

I got mine for 640$ a year ago. I put a nikon p223 on it and I shoot 1.5" groups at 100 yds. That's with cheap steel case wolf brand .223. Its an outstanding rifle for the price. Don't worry about the lack of dust cover or forward assist either. A veru solid rifle.
