I didn't even take notice to those things. The grip felt so cheap in my hand that's all I noticed. That along with the $750 price tag.

Just goes to show why I look at a gun a couple times before putting the money out. Haha

That's only if you get the sport model. My M&P 15 has the fwd assist and the ejection port cover. I can't see me ever having one without it.

Penn, which model is it? At $750 it shouldn't be a Sport!

I have a Smith and Wesson M&P AR-15 OR model and I love it. I just took it to the range this weekend and ran some Tula ammo in it and it ate it up and spit it out with no problems. the one I have has crome lined goodness on it. I have never had a problem with mine. I have found that most of smith and wesson's guns chew up anything you give them with no problem. my s&w pistols are the same! this is a pic of mine!

Default again......

i know i have posted this before, but i have a S&W M&P sport.....and i have nothing but good things to say about it thus far. in fact, i have traditionally been a "anti-tacticool" guy for various reasons.

one, i had traditionally thought AR's grossly overpriced for the most part. two, i just like tradtional (wood stock) set ups better overall.

in the last few years however, AR's have started to become priced where i felt they should have been all along (just mo guys). first dpms caught my eye with their AR's around $600. but when i saw that an AR by a respectable company like S&W was selling for $600-700(average $650), i became very interested. when i read all the great reviews, i took the plunge and bought the sport.

the dust cover and forward assist have been NO issue to me. i just use it as a sporting rifle. the accuracy is shaping up to be a very nice shooter, maybe MOA....groups at 50 are very encouraging. i need to get a scope to test out to 100. bout 400 rounds through mine....not one failure so far.

my only gripe with AR's in general so far is....they are a PITA to clean!!! hopefully, with more time, i will learn to be quick and effective at AR care.

here's my sport....like i said....i think it is a great bang for buck, to this point i am very satisfied with it. and this is coming from a guy who has tradtionally rejected the black rifle.
