New M&P15 Sport

M&P15 Sport Rifle

One of the new products that S&W debuted at SHOT SHOW was the M&P15 Sport Rifle.  This is their new entry level M&P rifle, designed to get people shooting for less cash.  The big cost saving measures are found on the upper receiver – there is no forward assist, no dust cover, and the rear sight is imported.  MSRP on the rifle is $709, which means that you’ll be able to get it for a really good price.  The gas key and bolt carrier are chromed, the front sight is a standard A2 adjustable, and the gun comes with an A2 flash hider.

As an entry level rifle this is a pretty good steal; you get the S&W quality M&P15, one of the best AR pattern rifles on the market, you get a slick-side upper, and the total weight of the rifle is 6.5 pounds.  If I were buying a base rifle to build on, the M&P15 Sport would be a great platform for it.

You’ve got to feed the beast, however.  The M&P15 Sport comes with one 30 round PMag, and accepts .223 and 5.56 ammo.  Right now we’re offering a sale on .223 Remington ammo, which is an affordable way to feed your new AR from Smith & Wesson.  There were a lot of neat products at SHOT Show from S&W, this rifle has a lot of potential for getting in to the AR market for a reasonable cost.

    –Great MSRP on this gun, but can’t wait to see the “Street price”. They will sell a bunch of these.

    The DPMS Panther “Sportical” is about the same except the front gas block has a picatinny and is slick across the top. Comes with 2 mags, case, and cleaning kit. I got mine for $699. From what I understand it is pretty much the same gun as Bushmaster makes. I’ve since dolled it up a little with some accesories to suit me. All the usual add-ons fit fine and I’ve fed it all kinds of stuff from Wolf to PMC to Remington and never had a FTF. I like’em. Just my 2 cents…

    Don’t forget there are ban compliant versions available as well for NY and CA. With best possible street price of $500, I’d pick one up and I’m sick of AR’s.

    So I am half way through the CA waiting period and looking for a good scope/sight.

    Above the author writes,

    “If I were buying a base rifle to build on, the M&P15 Sport would be a great platform for it”

    Suggestions? Uppers for sure, what else would one think of?
