View Full Version : S&W MP15?

03-01-2013, 11:46 PM
Are these good ARs? How do they rank in the "hiearchy" of ARs? How do they rank to lets say a Stag AR or Spikes AR? Are they accurate? Quality?

Why are they selling for so much lately? They seem to be hiked up even more than other ARs for sale?

Its good. Its Smith and Wesson come on!
Compare the features and go from there.

Their Sport model is amazing for the price. Their normal MP15 line is also great but I would get BCM at that price.

PS, as far as why they seem to be selling a lot lately I would wager it is due to the fact that they are what is available.

It is not a cork sniffers gun, but there honestly isn't anything wrong with it

Well, the price was amazing back in the day before November of last year, anyway...

far from tactical

S&W was my first AR. Great rifle!

I used to have a M&P 15 ORC....fantastic rifle! I'd throw it up against a Colt any day. That being said, when you're under the $2,000 price mark most AR's are going to be very close in reliability and performance. Just find something that fits your budget and intended usage, do the research, and then buy.

What would you guys say is better overall a m&p 15 sport or a stag 1?

03-02-2013, 12:15 PM
Also what is the difference between the sport and non-sport models?

The sport lacks the forward assist and dust cover.

None issues really. The forward assist 99.9percent of the time is all but useless. A dust cover isn't a bad idea if you are doing long foot patrols in areas with lots of fine sand, otherwise not needed really.

i have the m&p sport and i love it! i paid $650 last year

I bought a M&P 15T chambered in 5.56 with a 1:8 twist. Paid $1100 the Thusday after the shooting at Markleys in Watsonville CA. I was thinking about buying the sport model for $650 for 2 months prior. Then the shooting happened. I figured I better make up my mind and buy it NOW. I went to the store right when they opened at 12:00pm, though i was just being paranoid. This was right before all the panic buying. I got there parked and didnt see anybody out front, but when i got in there there was like 55 guys in there. My gun was the last gun in the store, it wasn't exactly what i wanted, but now I'm glad i got the 15T instead of the sport, not that there is anything wrong with the sport, its just that the 15T has full length rails. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS RIFLE!!!!! It is waaaay more accurate than me. Operates flawlessly every time. I would buy another one in an instant.

Dd you find one? Trying to find one for my father in law. Pm me.

If this panic nonsense ever dies down I'd like to pick up an M&P 15 Sport; in case I ever use an 'AR for HD I don't want the police grabbing my Colt...

Bought the M&P15t 2 weeks before the craziness. Couldn't be happier.

I think the M&P 15 Sport is (was?) the best deal in the AR world period. High-end gun reliability, durability with melonite finished barrel, nice 1:8 twist 5R rifling, only missing FA (don't need it) and dust cover (I don't shoot in sandstorms).

With iron sights I can shoot MOA if I do my part out to 70 yards and around 2 MOA at 100 yards. When I get an Aimpoint I'm sure that 2 MOA will tighten slightly.

I'd be hard pressed to justify spending more money on another DPI gun.

I love mine.

I picked one up today from a great calgunner for $1100.. I m super excited.. It ll be my first AR..

03-03-2013, 12:30 AM
platform. I got it for $650 at Turners and picked it up two days after Sandy Hook. A thousand rounds later its everything I could ask for. Saw the same gun at the Glendale show today for $1399. One of the few times I was ahead of the curve.

I just bought an m&p 15 Orc for 1900 just 2 weeks ago now. Yeah gouging price and I know I over paid. But I just shot it for the first time today and it's a great rifle. I'm happy and now to buy parts to customize it for my own. :)

My M&P15x (Troy quad rail hand guard and troy flip up rear site) has never failed me what so every, not one hiccup after 3000 rds. It shoots anything and everything, steal case, brass, it doesn't discriminate. The upper and lower fit is very tight, the finish is top notch and it's extremely accurate. My only complaint is that the M&P upper doesn't fit on my JD lower, could be the PSA pins though I not sure. My Stag upper fits on my JD lower fine but my M&P upper only fits my M&P lower. :confused:

What's not to like about it....good warranty on em. My first one, and hanging on to it.

My S&W M&P15T is a quality rifle, no doubt about it.

here is a good review from Shooting Times:
