    sounds like a question you should'a asked before you got one.......
    but, yeah it's good to go. BUT, remember even the best have bad days.

    Few days ago i just watched an utube vid of it. It exploded!! Maybe it was using a reloaded ammo or itself was one of the bananas.

    Heres the vid:

    There was obviously a problem there. FTE, and then the next round was the exploder. Did anyone else notice that the report of the FTE round seemed a bit reduced? I'll bet money that was a squib.

    Now let me also say, I'm a fan of S&W, but I'll be the first to admit that I'm sure every maker has had at least a few models hit the market and go on to a catastrophic failure.

    I have a M&P15 sport. I got it a few months back and it is a great rifle. I did some upgrades/additions (grip, quad rail, mag well grip, grip pod, reflex sight).

    I have a sport and am pleased with and yes ammo is a big problem for blowing up AR's . Seems like fed winny and GA have all run large batchs of junk ammo . SW makes all there metal work in house too. If you will watch that video you can see after many shoots he had a round chamberd it did seem to fire but no recoil or bolt movement and may have been no powder ,just a primer, He then ejected the round, chmabered another round and fired, boom. His fault.

    We have about 80 S&W's in our inventory. They seem to be a notch above the Bushmasters in quality for about the same price.

    No it's a sight mark I picked up from work cheap. It holds the zero fine so I'm content with it it right now. When I get extra money, I'll look into an eotech

    Mine is a Sightmark as well. It is decent but I will probably get an Eotech when my budget allows. Here is a better pic of the sight.
