If you are a hardcore AR 15 devotee, get the S&W.
I ordered a Mossberg Plinkster Tactical from Palmetto State on a deal of the day sale. I put a $40 Tru Glo red dot on it. Hope to shoot it this weekend.
Everything I have heard/read says the Mossberg is worth its price. However it is just a 22lr action wrapped in polymer to look like an AR.
But still should be fun to shoot and put squirrels and such in the gumbo pot.
Also, welcome to FTF. Stop by the Introduction section and let us know a little about yourself.
