    Still shopping around for an AR, even more so now after the dem's remarks on the assault weapons ban, and saw a lot of people liking the M&P15T. Anyone had any range time with it, or just some useful knowledge for a prospecting buyer?

    I have the M&P15 (not the T) and I LOVE it. Same internals as the T... only diffs are the BUIS and RAS.

    I originally wanted the T but after crunching the numbers I found it cheaper to buy the base M&P-15 and add the accessories after-market.

    I still need to add my RAS and BUIS... And I'm gonna add a Magpul CTR, too... But I really like choosing exactly what parts I'm gonna use. And I must say that the stock MP-15 is a great factory-built rifle.

    I have an M&P15 basic model, and have fondled/shot the T model. Great guns to shoot and are both accurate. I think the basic one is the best "low-end" AR out there. The T is great if you plan on setting it up with optics, mine will probably stay open sights always, with maybe the addition of a set of Trijicon night sites.

    um, I just did.

    $899 - S&W M&P-15
    $120 - YHM RAS
    $180 - BUIS front/rear
    ======
    ~$1200

    Plus you have the benefit of spreading it out over time, and using the parts that YOU want.

    it's a few hundred AND you get the benefit of using parts that YOU choose. Not what someone else thought was good.

    You can buy it now for $1217 :rofl:

    You're right though, piecing it together saves HUNDREDS over msrp

    which is STILL more money... Especially when I posted HIGH prices on my estimates. You can get a RAS for $80 or less if you wanted, and you don't have to spend $180 on sights.... But I used the numbers for what I'm going with.... Again illustrating THAT YOU GET TO CHOOSE WHAT YOU WANT.

    There are many M&Ps out there with out of spec mag wells. Specifically earlier M&Ps. If you look at one make sure it'll take a PMAG before buying. FYI
