    M&P15T, here is a link to the exact model on Smith's site: Product: Model M&P15T - 5.56 mm, Tactical

    I got it new for almost exactly 1K (997 plus tax).

    Anyway I finally gave up on a Colt and decided that for me this was probably more than what I need, I get a liftime warranty with S&W, and I get at least some good out of the box features with the quad rail and folding sites.

    Curious for some feedback if I did good for my first AR.

    It's a nice rifle. I built one for about the same price, now all you need is an optic.

    That's a pricey piece of firearm...

    I don't prefer ARs, not direct impingement ones anyway. I plan on buying an A2 at some point... just not really high on the to-dos.

    I have an apprieciation for Russian small arms , AKs, SKSs, and RPKs.

    Added magpul +Grip and magpul vertical rail grip. Feels like a new gun. Those factory grips are god awful.

    Still need scope (leaning red dot, still undecided........), new stock (not a priority), and a rail accessory to hold a tactical light either on a side or below in front of vertical grip. Also still figuring out what sling configuration I want, kinda like the single.

    sounds like things are getting really pricey.. Did you ever look at building one?.. you could have done it a lot less and made a really nice one. I bought mine in pieces and put it together. If you have the money to burn you should look at Aimpoint.com for a red dot. I'm running the compm4 now. Truglo and all the other cheap one will lose zero over time.
