    have an opportunity to get the DD M4 V7 instead of the S&W M&PT for another $160.

    Have no experience with DD, know they are an "upper tier" manuf.

    Thoughts?

    $999.95 for the M&PT and $1161 for the DD V7. Seems like a no brainer.....

    No question. DD! DD is better made, has better parts, better QC.

    I told my boss he could have whichever I did not take, otherwise I would GB it.

    went and paid for it this AM, very nice rifle. no sights, so I guess I will put some Magpuls on it.....

    the forend is a little strange with the slick sides and 3 little moveable piccatinnys.....

    now to decide on a red dot

    Get the DD, but I have owned the M&P and they make a damn good AR. You won't go wrong with either one, but DD makes a better gun IMO. But not by much.

    got the DD (and a Saiga 12....)

    the "modular free float" handguard is different, but cool. The DD is a VERY well put together AR.

    Bought a bunch of mags and tactical crap for the Saiga too......

    Best deal going on a quality red dot is the Aimpoint PRO. Catch them on sale, and they can be had for as low as ~$370.
