  1. Isn’t this a retread of the AR they had before the Sport? And had problems selling after the cheaper gun came out? Looks nice regardless…
    saw they passed $1000000000 in sales! Cool😏

  2. Why are so many “new” ARs looking like the last one before it?

    I think the design is pretty common now, and likely at a point where most of the possible improvements to the original platform have already been made. Wake me up when a manufacturer comes out with a mini-rail gun contained in an AR upper.

    Or something in the 40-watt range.

      • The cheapest .223 on ammoseek.com is currently 29.9¢ a round (Tula steel cased). That is still high, but not as bad as 6-12 months ago. Two years ago you could get the Tula for about 17¢ and decent brass cased (Federal etc) for around 30¢.

        Prices are currently dropping

        Speaking of the rifle, this S&W seems nice, but not particularly better than the PSA I put together a couple years ago for about $500 total (other than the Ambi controls, which would be nice since I am a lefty).

        If that $1370 MSRP works out to 999$ real world, I think it is still $100-200 high. Real world price of $799-899 is probably reasonable. (Other than the world being on fire). I try not to buy guns when the world is on fire.

    • they left 1 in 7 rifling and went to 1 in 8 like Ruger’s had for a good while now.
      Handles the 77 grn bullets better.
      upgraded charging handle surprised me.

      • Actually they had a 1:9” twist instead of a 1:7″ twist.
        You have that backwards, the more twist per inch (lower number) stabilizes heavy bullets better.
        By going to 1:8″ twist they have the same as the Ruger AR-556.
        I have a M&P Sport 2 with a 1:9” twist that stabilizes 77 gr bullets just fine.
        No keyholing or inaccuracy at long distance.
        BTW: It’s over-hyped, there is very little difference between 1:8″ and 1:9” and heavy bullets.
        I routinely outshoot my Ruger with my S&W.
        I paid less then $500 for each long before the panic.
        IMO this S&W rifle is not worth 1400 bucks.

    • For $1372 that trigger had better talk dirty to me.
      For $150 on sale I bought a CMC drop in trigger that I really like.
      It’s on a PSA build. You can never have too many modern sporting rifles.
      The Sport 2 and Ruger-556 were just too tempting to pass up for around $450-$460.
      You cant beat the price and both have run flawlessly.
      Plus you have furniture laying around so you play dress up.

    • I prefer ” utility rifles” as a descriptive, but ” sport” or ” sport/utility” works well…
      Of course, I also consider a Mosin Nagant Model 44; Carbine , Finn M39 ;or an SKS in stock trim to all have a wide range of utility-from defense,to clanging steel at 300-500 yards, taking deer or punching paper…all of which encompass both ” sport” and ” utility”…and because it makes everyone from Fudds to Anti RKBA semen swallowing schmucks gibber in atonal hoots, grunts and clicks…
      So a nicely put together-albeit more than a little overpriced-AR type carbine has a lot to recommend it, given the ergonomics, quick to shoulder and handle nature of it.
      I’d probably prefer it with an 18 or a twenty inch barrel, but such things are less common now than when the 20 inch was standard for the platform.

  3. I used to look for a place to buy a sports rifle. And to be honest, not the reviews I read on the Revain review platform https://revain.org/categories/sporting-goods-shops I would be looking for a reliable seller for a long time. And so I was able to get a quality product for a good price. So, if you also trust the reviews, what could be better, what are the reviews from experts about products and services written on blockchain technology?
