Fellow UCC Members -

I am looking at getting a S&W M&P15T AR-15.

Here are the specs:

Caliber: 5.56 mm NATO / .223
Action: Gas Operated Semi Automatic
Capacity: 30 Rounds, 5.56 mm or .223
Overall Length: 35" Extended / 32" Compacted
Stock: 6-Position Telescopic
Forend: 4-Sided, 10" Free-Float Modular Rail Forend (MRF)
Sight Length: 15"
Barrel Length: 16"
Barrel Twist: 1 in 9"
Weight (No Mag): 6.85 lbs.
Trigger Pull: 7 lbs. (approx.)
Upper/Lower Material: 7075 T6 Aluminum
Barrel Material: 4140 Steel
Chromed Components: Barrel Bore, Gas Key, Bolt Carrier
Receiver and Barrel Finish: Hard Coat Black Anodized
Front Sight: Adjustable, Folding Battle Sight
Rear Sight: Adjustable, Folding Battle Sight

This would be my first AR-15. What do you guys think about that weapon, given that my primary use for it would be home defense and plinking?

Guys...the M&P is made with Stagg parts. About the only thing all S&W on the gun is the logo. Why not cut out the middle man and get a Stagg. One basicly like the one pictured (Sheepdog) is only about $875.

Here's a picture of the Stag Arms AR that Joseph mentioned (closest resemblance to the T-series M&P):

The MSRP on the Stag is $1125 while the MSRP on the M&P is $1754 - granted you don't pay that much, but look at the markup for the S&W name!
