Default M&p ts

I'm ordering a new AR within the next week...mainly just because I need a new work rifle. I have a build I did in 6.8 spc but they won't allow me to carry anything other than a 5.56/.223. I also have am ACR enhanced...but do not want to carry a rifle with that much money tied into it at work. So...I'm considering the M&P TS. The price at LE rate is $1097 and it appears to have some great options on it. Just curious if anyone on here has one?

Well at that price the Colt LE6920 is the standard for a patrol/duty rifle. The S&W is good though. What included options are you referring to?

Has a Troy full length rail, magpul furniture and flip up sights, 1/7 twist which I like because I prefer heavier rounds, a Vortex flash hider.

Since you already have a 6.8 why not just get a reallllllly good upper for the lower you have now??


I would recommend a bcm chf of some sort and a bcm bolt carrier group and a bcm gunfighter medium handle.

Because per policy I have to have a factory matching rifle. No personal builds (another reason I can't carry the 6.8). Since I built my lower I won't be able to go that route...had already thought of it.

That's really retarded...

In that case I would contact bcm and see if they will send you a lower. Either that or get a colt.

S&W are great plinkers not something I would bet my life on.

Odds are you will never need it but if you do....

I have the S&W MP 15TS and it has never given me a single problem in the 2 years I have been shooting it. It is one of my favorite AR's.

Mule if you can get a discount like on the M&P on others like Daniel Defense there rifles run around the same retail. I like the M&P line and had one but when your stepping up in price might as well look at others too.
