re: Official AR-15 thread
I bought that exact model AR week-before-last. It came with an S&W vertical grip/light combo and a carrying case. It's my first AR, too. It is really great for the price. I have since added a muzzle brake and a Bushnell red dot that I had lying around. I'm proud of it.

I posted a pic on Reddit and the fine folks over there called me a "fricking douchebag mall ninja." Gun snobs are weird.

Indeed they are. By all accounts the Sport II is utterly reliable and will out-shoot most owners, especially if you find ammunition it likes. For $500 it's a no-brainer for someone new to the platform like us. I honestly have no real attachment to the AR platform but the value proposition here is almost unbelievable.

I think people have a hard time wrapping their head around the fact that people different interests/needs in firearms.

Not everyone needs/wants "duty grade" stuff. You want to plink, clone, whatever then do what makes you happy.

I only take issue with the "Just as good" crowd. Your personal anecdote of having shot 500 rds through your PSA with no issues doesn't mean its on par with a KAC, LMT, etc.. But even then you just roll your eyes and move on with your life

Reliable is reliable, accurate is accurate, specs are specs. There isn’t much mystery to the AR platform at this point. I have no problem paying for accuracy and to a lesser extent fit & finish, and I have no problem with people paying for a roll mark they like, but a mil spec rifle is a mil spec rifle when it comes to function.

And I say all that as someone thinking about a Larue in .308.

Thinking of building a small 9mm AR as a backpack truck gun. Something in the 3.5-4.5" bbl range.

I have a New Frontier Armory. It uses MP5 mags and it's been great

Make sure you get a Spikes 9mm buffer. I had issues with mine and switched to their STx-9 buffer and it solved my problem.

Here's a pic of my new M&P-15 Sport II. I was called a "mall ninja" for having that vertical foregrip/light combo (which is made by S&W and came with the gun). I'd admittedly never heard the term before, lol.

Just a quick word of warning - if you shoot that on a range, especially an indoor range, the people next to you are going to hate you.

So I've been told. Haven't tried out the new muzzle brake yet.
