I didn't see where the op mentioned the "sport" model. If that's $800 for the M&P15 then it's a good deal if it is in fact the sport they are trying to sell you then the price is to high.

I have the sport and it's a great gun. Its very accurate right out of the box. Its a hard gun to beat for e price.

He mentioned it had no forward assist or dust cover. Therefore, it must be a sport from what I understand.

I checked; the M&P similar priced model also has no forward assist. My opinion is if you have a malfunction that requires the use of a forward assist, then the gun is broke and needs to be fixed. Unless you are going in the desert or being deployed, there really isn't a need for a dust cover. Just spend a couple of minutes shaking out the dirt when you are done playing for the day. I haven't had personal experience with the S&W line of AR's, but their pistols have never given me any problems, and they retain their value.

Yes, "beloved" isn't too far a stretch when we're talking BCM!

Glad you like the new Windham AR, plus they are local to you. It's a feel-good story for someone to step in and employ the old Bushmaster workers. I wish them well and hope they can make a go of it.

Saw these guys at the 2012 NRA gun show in St Louis, Rifles look really nice. They are going to be my next AR purchase! They said that they will have a .308 coming out in the fall of 2012, can't wait

You may have wait to get one but the M&P sport can be bought for around 600 dollars and if the latest magazine reviews for accuracy of the windham shows nothing great about the rifle. Just another of many out there. Many guys with the sport are shooting MOA and less when scoped. Just a good solid no frills rifle.
