    Picked this guy up on Wednesday...700 bucks, its the S&W M&P 15 Sport model...basically just lacks the breach dust cover and forward assist...otherwise its a fantastic rifle! Already put 600 rounds through it, put a Sight Mark dot scope on it, and just got quad rails in the mail! Next step is a magpul grip i think? Just thought i would share!

    Congrats! Now save up for a good optic system that won't let you down.

    Yeah pretty stoked..was looking at more expensive sights that were 300-400 price range, but that sight mark surprised me and is very consistant and accurate. As far as the quad rail, i went with a UTG from Midway...they have em for 10% off so figured it would be just fine!

    I've had that model M&P15 for 3 years and 2000 rounds. It is a solid AR. It is rather accurate for a chrome lined barrel. Mine no longer looks like that.

    good buy.

    Might want to avoid taking pics with your checkbook up close and personal and posting them on the internet...

    Is there a particular reason you are running a bipod with 1x optics?

    I agree ... There's no cure for the Black Rifle Purchasing (BRP) disease ... you are warned.
    Congrats for seeding your home with the first black rifle!

    Now shoot the <deleted> out of it a enjoy it. You bought, what in my opinion is one of the best and most underrated Black Rifles in the business. It will serve you well. I love my M&P 15, it is my go to rifle. I love my CMMG & DD V4, but I usually grab the Smith when I go shooting.
