M&P 15 Sport

Picking one up for $600 out the door, can anybody here tell me how you like this gun. I currently have a sig m400 and love it, just can't pass up for this price. I watched a few vids on youtube and i see it has no dust cover or forward assist like my sig...no big deal. Seems like a pretty solid AR.

Congrats on the M&P15 Sport. I have one as well and I have really enjoyed mine. The lack of a forward assist and dust cover has not bothered me in the least. Now if it were being used as a true battle weapon and being exposed daily to dust, dirt, mud, and water I would probably want the forward assist and dust cover. In my opinion, the 15 Sport is a fine entry level AR platform and does fine for it's intended purposes. Shoot it like you stole it and have fun with it. You made a good choice and got a good deal. Just my .02 worth.

I got mine on layaway with $380 left to pay. Mine was $680 out the door but I didn't have the cash on hand so I had them hold on to it because these things fly off the shelves where I am in central Tx. Hopefully I'll get it out next week. I read up on as many reviews and YouTube vids as I could and found it to be a very solid tool. Can't wait for it to be in my hands.

979 you will love it. Got mine about 5 weeks ago and finally made it to the range last weekend. Was very accurate out of the box at 50 yds. Shot 223 & 556. My first AR, why did I wait sooo long to get one. Enjoy.

100 rounds!!!!! That will last you about 5 minutes
I love mine. The forward assist and dust cover was not originally on the M16s when Stoner design it. The military decided they wanted them added. I watched a demo with a guy shooting one in Arizona prone. He put many rounds threough it in the sand and never had a problem. The dust covers open when shooting so they just keep crud out when not in use. As far as the forward assist, I don't want to force a round in the chamber that might cause a jam so I don't miss it. I have two others with it but I don't use it. Just MHO
Enjoy your sport. They shoot great.

I've had the older (a couple years before the oboma weapons freak-out), Sport with the 1-8 5R melonite treatment for quite a few years and it's had thousands of rounds through it with ZERO issues or problems.

They are excellent entry level AR's. Should make you a great rifle for many years to come!
