tae73 Yes they are you can put lots of money in them and lots of money down range with ammo. If you have a place to shoot I recommend some tannerite with watermelons or pumpkings!! Adults and kids get a kick out of seeing stuff explode.

The front site is pinned with tapered pins that must be pushed out from one direction. That took a little time, but not hard.
You are giving me ideas . I haven't shot the rifle yet, still awaiting my ammo to arrive, but the trigger doesn't seem to be that bad in dry firing. How much of an improvement is the new trigger assembly?

I bought a red dot but it's supposed to co-witness with the front sight therefore I'll be keeping it for the time being. It's good to have a rifle platform with endless mods... reminds us of our Wranglers!

st1264 Got it, waiting for my ammo to come in so I can test er' out.

st1264 ^ sweet rig up there

WranglerJR83 I've got one and like it. I wish I would have upgraded a little to have a lo-profile gas block and longer rail, but the gun is crazy accurate and handles just about any ammo I throw at it. It is a good gun. Here is mine as of today. I have added a command arms foregrip, red dot, mako magwell grip, .and a 5" riser with 45 degree offset.

st1264 ^ Thanks for the reply. This is the consensus that I've read. The more premium features would be lost on me anyway, as a leisure range shooter. I'm debating whether to buy this rifle or get some AR Fuel black wheels for my 13' Wrangler...

Wish I had an unlimited income but I owed money this tax season which has dented my wallet a little bit.

MTJeepTJ Guy i work next to has one. He likes it, he paid 650$ for it a year ago. It has a few options that are not installed. But not vital to non combat shooting. The sport has no forward assist and no gas launcher attachment portion on the barrel. I have a stag ar15 and it has all the stuff his doesnt and i have never used any of them. They are cool to have but not vital and thats why S&W made this rifle, they wanted an affordable ar15 for guys to get started with. I have used my forward assist with my 22lr bolt kit installed but have yet to need it with 5.56/.223 rounds. I say buy it at 700$ as that is a good price.

Anyone have a Smith&Wesson M&P15 Sport (budget AR15)

Looking at this budget AR15 to get me into the AR15 platform. Anyone have this particular model? The reviews about this rifle have been pretty good online, but I know very little about AR15's. Anyone have one or shot one? Guess it is very basic but dependable. Here's a review:

If anyone has any info on this particular rifle, please post your opinion. PM me if you like. If this is worth the $700 (really good price here in Canada) I can have the rifle and still have cash to mod my Jeep

(Yes, we can have AR15's in Canada, only for approved range use).
