M&P 15 TS
anyone have feedback on this one? M&P15 TS w/ the flip up sites, long troy hand guard 1 in 7 twist, chromed finish
I'm lookin around for an AR, not sure if i'll get off the shelf or build. Looking for options in the 800-1100 range or so. Wondering if I can get a superior build for the money compared to off the shelf options.

I don't own one but a buddy of mine in Fort Worth owns and M&P 15t and loves it. I almost bought an M&P 15T a couple of years ago, but back then they came with a barrel which had a 1 in 9 twist rate and I wanted something that would stabilize heavier rounds. I wound up buying another LMT CQB MRP piston rifle instead.

You can't go wrong with that one. You could probably pick up a Colt now in that price range. Colts will always hold their value as long as you keep them factory stock and not monkey around with them.
Factory guns have a better resale for the fact they have been assembled and backed by a reputable company.
You could build a nice one for that kind of money and select what parts you actually want in it. But a home build will not have the same resale value as a factory made one.
AR's are modular guns, all parts are interchangeable for the most part. You can customize any to your liking. Almost all factory guns have parts in them made by other companies, so there is really not a difference. The M&P shown has components from several companies like Troy and Magpul. But the parts are built to Smith and Wesson specs and warrantied by them. If you were to buy and assemble the components, you would have to deal with several different companies for any warranty issues.

I have one but haven't shot it a lot yet. It's very accurate and the trigger is the best I have ever felt from an out of the box stock rifle.

had a m&p 15 sport and loved it, ate everything I fed it. But had a buddy offer me a stupid price for it so I no longer have it. +1 on the colt though, bought a 6920 at walmart to plink and even took a deer with it this year, great gun for the value...or there is always psa
