    New Dicks grand opening near the house. Got the M&PT for $1099 - $100 off for $999. Opened an account for another 10% off. $30 on the rewards card. $100 rebate from S&W. Plus it came in this fancy box. Off to the range.

    Sweet. I did the exact same thing with the Troy Carbine they had. Bought some extra mags with the rewards.

    I got one of those sweet boxes last week. It's up on ebay but apparently people don't know quality when they see it.

    OP, I am very interested in your rifle's accuracy.

    It has a 1/8 twist, Melonited barrel, instead of a 1/9 or 1/7 chrome lined barrel.

    Definitely interested.

    Congrats. I really like the Nations Finest coins S&W sends out with the rebates.

    I've heard a lot of comments on how the parts, particularly the bolt carrier group and barrel, are on par with some of the best manufactures out there for a lot less money. If I was wanting an AR instead of a SCAR that would be my first choice.

    Yes, the M&PT has 1 in 8" 5R Rifling. I had it on my Buds wish list for awhile before I realized its now a Dicks "exclusive". I broke it in with some American Eagle bulk and Tula, ran like a champ.

    Think I am going to put on a NIKON M-223 1-4x20.
