Same here, been shooting handguns since a kid, but wanting to get into a new ar15. Had my eye on M&p 15 but not sure if it a good gun or are there better out there in the same price range.

It's called military and police for a reason. It's field tested and approved. Great gun for the money.

Tested and approved by who?

I think the M&P AR line is better than a lot but it would not be in my top 5 choices for a duty rifle.

Used by all the cops in this area. I agree it wouldn't be my first choice either. I could have picked one up a month ago for $750 with an eotech but I passed. Still a great gun for the money.

They are OK. They have had their share of problems with them since first introducing them. However, I believe they have them all worked out at the present time. Regarding rating the weapon. I would class them with the Bushmaster and DPMS models compared to others like Daniels Defense, LMT, Rock River and Stag for example who are built with a little more TLC being built at a bench vs assembly lines. Certainly regarding the brand if you have an AR it functions flawlessly and you like it! It is a good AR Rifle in my book!

Well all the Mfg. you named buy many of their parts from the same vendors. My S&W 15T had a Mossberg bbl. today S&W own their own bbl. Mfg.company they bought. My lower fits the upper nice and tight many others not so tight, it has no effect on how good it shoots groups. Colt has the best quality control on their Military M4 and M16s but their commercial line is no better then any of the others as far as parts. I also have a LMT Defender 2000 and it shoots good but no better then my S&W. Now if I was asked who makes the best 5.56 piston rifle I would say the FNSCAR16s hands down it's the best as for quality of build and it's parts.

So who do they get their parts from?

So a Colt 6920 is the same quality as a DPMS?

Just because your LMT and a SW shoot similar groups doesn't mean they shoot the same. There's more to shooting than group size.
