Default S&W M&P 15 for $650

Gander Mtn has these for $650. Would you buy it? Why or why not?

Can you be more specific on which model it is? Or provide a link?

I received that flier yesterday as well. I can't remember what model it was but I believe it was the Sport. It doesn't have a forward assists or dust cover. I threw it away but give me a second.

Saw it today. It was the Sport. I'm building one using a better PSA upper for about the same price.

My thoughts exactly though SW's Shot Show reveals are very interesting.

They've teamed up w/ Magpul, Kyle Lamb, and seem to be making improvements in their overall quality.

Certain people, that don't understand the "Chart" or why others insist on demanding quality, talk a lot of "just as good as" crap but it seems that the lower end AR manufacturers are starting to listen and are stepping up. It's great for the consumer. It helps drive prices down and quality up.

Scott, here's a recent thread with links...
http://www.firearmstalk.com/forums/f20/brand-new-2012-s-w-m-p-magpul-mid-length-56489/

It is nice to see S&W step up to the plate. Adding Kyle Lamb, more Magpul and midlength gas are smart moves.

If I had to spend $650 on the sport I would rather spend $600 w/ shipping on this and build the lower your self

You can buy a BCM UPPER from Bravo Company for $400. Get a BCM Lower built by Grant at G&R Tactical for $280-$469 depending what options you go with.
This is a way better rifle than the S&W M &P. Just my .02 worth and the direction I would go.
