Default M&P 15 Sport Carbine 5.56 Nato

Does anyone have one of these? What do you think of it? Are they worth buying? Can buy one for $700 @ local gun store.

They go for quantity over quality. Not saying its not a good gun. They just make a ton of them.

Extremely bare bone rifle; i.e., no forward assist, no cover over the ejection port. I'm sure the less they have to do to it ad the less extra hardware, the less expensive they can retail it for.

they use pretty decent barrels i dont think they mp inspect and i dont think the bolts are peened. what testing they do is liekly batch tested at best.

great range guns dont expect it to run hard and hot and keep doing that without upgrading the bcg.

for the price range they are in they are a great choice.
