What if any differences are there between a current production version and one with a late 2007 build date? I have the opportunity to pick one up that has been gently used for 975 bucks and want to make sure there are no issues. Thoughts?

To my knowledge the early Smiths were made by Stag. At some point S&W started making them thierselves. When? I'm not certain. Perhaps someone else can help.

The ones made by S&W seem to be held in higher regards than the earlier S&W models made by Stag.

Again. If your serial number starts with SM it was made by S&W.

Sorry...I typed wrong. It starts with SW, not SM. That means that Stag built it, right? It seems to be pretty early production, the serial # is SW013XX, so it should be one of the first 1400 built, if I'm getting this right.

I must add that it's a great rifle!

Stag is the commercial company for CMT. CMT makes parts for many AR manufacturers (including Colt).

Unless it has all the trimmings, $975 is a little steep.

The T models are pretty trimmed-out. Troy industries fre-float quad rail and BUASs. $975 sounds good for a rifle that lists around $1400.00

The T-Series I've handled also had 2 stage triggers. I love them, the quality is excellent and when it came out not many were offering such a well loaded AR for the price. I think that's more than fair price. You are getting a real deal. Get it and if you don't like it sell it to me.

..this thread got me interested in the specifics of my M&P15T, so I sent an e-mail to S&W customer service asking when mine was built, which parts (who built it) and which BCG is in it.

I just got a response. It seems my rifle was built in-house using Stag parts and an LMT BCG, back in 2006. So, I am happy.

Just a great rifle (albeit the only real M4gery I have ever owned, so nothing to compare it to. I must admitt that I am absolutely drooling over POF piston ARs. I got to handle one at a Gander Mountain, and they are just amazing rifles.
