    Anyone own one of these? any opinions? how does it compare to the traditional Bushmasters, DPMS or Olympics? Haven't shot one yet, but was thinking about one....

    It is every bit as good Bushmaster & DPMS, and very likely made in the same factory as one or the other.

    Apparently there were some issues with them when they first came out, but S&W took care of them pretty quick. I don't own one, but I've shot a few that belong to friends and fit and finish wise they seem on pare with the rest of the upper mass production ones.

    Also, I own stock in the company so I highly recommend you purchase more then one :happy0001:

    I prefer the one pictured, 16" carbine with the longer RIS rail and truncated front block. It has nice feel, but the S&W's do need a little break in, some of them are pretty gritty in the action. You'll get the same quality as you would with a Bushmaster / Colt, etc.

    They've kinda crept up in price lately.

    Yeah that's the M&P15T. Love mine. Didn't get such a good of a deal being non-LEO though. ;) I paid $1,200 I think.

    I have seen buyers at Academy come close to buying the 5.45 rifles when they wanted a 5.56, so be sure you know what you are looking at.
