Default Opinion on the S&W M&P AR-15

I am thinking about purchasing the S&W M&P AR-15 for LE carry. I was wondering if anyone had one, or has shot some rounds through it? Any opinions would be appreciated!

Thanks

Justin

I have the 15A. Great carbine, better than the Colt I carried in the desert. Have about 500 rounds through it w/ no problems at all. You will not be disappointed.

question, why would you need it and how would you carry it?

yes, this is an ignorant question from an ignorant poster. I guess I would have thought that would be more of a SWAT rifle which I figured you would be supplied.

Out of cursioty I did some looking. Looks like a price of about $1K? I guess that's not to bad. Would you have one to leave in your trunk in case you ever get in a shoot out?

I've had a lot of experience with the M-16/M4 and in my opinion they run great. Since the M&P is based off of the same design, any bugs or short comings the latter had should not be present in the M&P. My advice is to do your homework, knowledge is your best weapon. Here's a link to a review the Guns and Ammo did, hope it helps.

I've never owned a S&amp;W but I have shot them and they shoot and feel like most other quality ARs, i don't think you can go wrong for 799

This is my RRA, YHM free floated quad rail, YHM phantom 5c2flash suppressor, eotech512, Insight M6X long gun laser/light with pressure switch
