    I think that's what he's talking about. I think I'll shoot a max of a hundred rounds maybe two/three times a year.

    Once you get into the black rifle game, you will get addicted. Wont be long till you get the itch to cover it in some new furniture. I just covered mine with all Magpul Parts in Olive Drab. Looks great and didnt cost an arm and a leg.

    I don't think it's total amount of fire that will damage the MBUS sight, but the amount you do in a short amount of time. Gas blocks heat up pretty quickly, so it might not take much for the plastic to start getting too hot on the front sight.

    Either way, Magpul says not to do it, so I would suggest listening to them.

    Welcome to the EBR club and good job on the S&W. I would suggest starting out with a set of Troy BUIS and an Aimpoint H-1 and put some rounds through it to get a good feel for the platform. Be careful tho, the EBR's are like gremlins and start multiplying quickly. :rofl:

    Be careful when getting a flip up for the front gas block mount, some are receiver rail height, but some are lower. There are specific flip-ups for each height. I don't know what M&P uses, but you can just lay a straight edge on the receiver rail and see if the front is the same.

    I just bought the same AR. Troy sights are ordered, just installed the MOE handgard and waiting to get my Aimpoint Pro with a Larue Mount.

    Don't forget the Larue Mount!
