Most ARs come with mil-spec triggers... standard stuff.

Triggers don't make your rifle more accurate... it helps you be more consistent. If you have an accurate rifle, then it really allows you to get more consistent breaks on the shots.

My 2 stage trigger shoots a LOT better than the mil-spec triggers. Its been the one item that has tightened up my groups, especially at a distance.

I prefer the 2 stage to the factory 1 stage triggers, but that's just what I like...

Trigger selection can also depend on application...

I'm now 400rounds thru mine half steel half brass, I havnt cleaned it nor will I until it jams alls I'm spraying in it is wd40, and again I must say if you're in the market for a AR this is definitely a good buy! Aafter getting into AK's never thought another AR would spike my interest especially one that only costs $730 otd.

Nice intro review ZT, thanks for the vid...

The "Magpul Rear Sight" faux pas (faupaux) was kinda funny (nice text recovery though )... the fixed sight is actually really, REALLY damn good - just not suitable to use with optics... but it's better than my Troy rear folding sight (which I really luv anyway). I wish I could find a use for that sight on another gun.

Your explanation of the features (or supposed lack of) is very good - as is the description of barrel treatment.

I look forward to future segments of your review(s)

This thread should be relabeled "The Official S&WMP15 Fanclub thread"

Cool review, still looks funny without the forward assist though.

Went to the range with my first AR - a S & W Sport - and fell in love with the gun. I had a few issues w/ ftf but found I wasn't running it wet enuf. Once that was solved, not a hiccup after 450 rounds. I had so much fun, I called my dealer and bought the .22 version of the gun. I picked it up yesterday and I'm going to the range today. Unless someone tells me not to, I'm going to soak the .22 bolt in Break Free before the first round gets fired. I am so impressed with both of these guns. They've got the cool factor down pat and they are so well put together. I think these are the best bang for your buck in the ar 15 market today.

I confess to having added 2 drops of MPro7 LPX to the BCG before beginning this test, but nothing more. All the additional "running it wet" was due to the rain, which was heavier than it appeared on the video.

ALSO: The picture in the video does not do justice to how much "carbon crud" had built up in the BCG area. Strangely, the barrel, bolt carrier and chamber did not accumulate. Nonetheless, I was impressed with how dirty the thing could get (Wolf ammo!) and still keep ticking.

I got one just to have an AR in my collection. No malfunctions so far and it feels pretty well built. Don't miss the forward assist or dust cover at all either. I think it's a good rifle to have and pass around when your out shooting with friends who have never shot before. At least in my case they want to shoot the AR and tend to shy away from my other rifles, which is fine with me.

Thanks for taking the time to do reviews ZT. Look forward to seeing what punishment you have in mind for her.

Mine does it too.

I'm loving my M&P sporter. I've had several ftf's with steel case ammo (7 or 8 out of 200+ rounds of Wolf and Tula stuff) but none with Federal and PMC brass cased stuff. Since this is my 1st AR I have nothing to compare it to. But I really like it.

Just inspected mine that came from Buds but it didn't come with the Magpul MBUS. I guess I should have known since it wasn't spec'd on the web page. I think I need it though for my TRS-25. Can't wait to shoot.

Has someone done a serious accuracy test with one of these?

The barrel is really interesting, seems like its the only one in the market designed specifically for the recreational shooter.

Default "Entry Level" ?

Lots of good info, thanks Zombie Tactics for starting it off. My question is the referance to the sport being an entry level AR 15. Ive heard a lot of really good things about it but entry level usually means it isnt as good. I am looking for a CA legal AR that I dont need to build to start, wont cost a fortune but is as upgradeable as others. I dont want to buy it if i cant eventually put in a nickel boron carrier group or if i decide to change the upper eventually or it will only accept grips made by S&W... if anyone understands what im getting at your input is most welcome. Thanks everyone

Ok sorry everyone im seeing that it doesnt have forward assist, or dust cover over ejection port... not sure I want one without... probably ok without for general plinking but when the zombies come?

Umm, it's an AR. I'm not sure why you think it wouldn't accept AR accessories.

Merc i was affraid i was going to get a reply like that. I grew up with firearms and do actually use them in my job but as far as AR's go i am obviously new so if you could maybe help teach that would be prefered. Thx

Oh and i get that the accessories all fit im wondering about internal upgrades for the most part, sorry if that wasnt the clearest.
