    Have not heard a bad word about it yet to be honest. I love the ideal of an American made AR15 at a entry level price point from a company like S&W which has a huge distribution network within the industry. More ARs in more hand is a good thing IMO. This model only helps that.

    Poke around threads in here and a few other specialist forums, and you'll see bad words galore.

    I've owned the 15-Sport before the tide of internet opinion started to swing to the favorable side. Myself along with other 15-Sport owners kept on insisting that based upon 1st hand knowledge, the 15-Sport is good to go.

    I find it very interesting that the uninformed non-owners voiced their vehement opinion that the 15-Sport could never be a good rifle based solely on price point, the omission of a forward assist and/or dust cover are now turning into uninformed non-owners who have changed their tune based on a Nutnfancy review.

    Sheepeople. What idiots.

    For the average range commando the dust cover is unneccessary, most rifles don't have one. I prefer one, but i do tend to do more than most.

    The forward assist was put on with the M16A1 and was a mistake then, more of a security blanket than anything else. Any round refusing to chamber the first time, jamming it in there's not gonna help. If you need to quietly close the bolt, the depression on the side of the BCG (there for that reason...) works just fine.

    I'm a less than average range commando. :supergrin:

    Mr. Murphy, that is a very humble understatement on your part.

    Let's just say taking an accidental faceplant off the top of a 10 foot sand dune en route to your Humvee teaches you just why they put one on there in the first place....

    It didn't keep everything out, but it would have been a lot worse without it. :)

    Some people like him some dont. I think he has some good videos and points, I dont always like or agree but I can respect his views. Like any youtuber there will be those who will like and dislike. Hickok45 seems to be the only one who I havent heard too many people dislike.

    Nutnfancy talks to much and enjoys to listen to his own voice. Hickock is very low key understated doesn't take a lot of time to get to the point. Sturmgewher is the same way. A 30 min nutnfancy review is about equal with a 5-10 min hickock review.

    :rofl:

    Boy that's the damn truth.

    But, though overly long winded, fairly decent review of the Sport. I personally take a practical approach to ARs, I like getting value for the dollars spent(cheap does NOT = value!). And IMHO, there are three primary sources of value, or bang-for-the-buck, out there...

    The M&P15 Sport wins for budget factory rifles. IMO you will NOT find an equal rifle in that price range. Not even close. If the lack of dust door and forward assist bugs you, swap the bare upper receiver. I did this on the Sport I had, less than $100.

    The classic 6920 Colt, if you have a bit more money to play with, and don't want to build your own(?), this AR delivers on every level.

    Bravo Company(BCM) for the DIY crowd. I absolutely love their gear. I've lost count of how many of their uppers I've had show up on my doorstep, lol. Their auto-spec BCGs are made of pure awesome(and are a great upgrade for any AR), and the Gunfighter charging handle will be the best $45 you ever spend.

    BCM will cost you a bit more of course, but what you get for what you spend, it's money wisely spent.

    There's a TON of "cheap" ARs out there, DPMS and the like, but I don't see that as a value purchase. I'm sure many will gripe, but I just don't see it as getting quality per dollar spent.

    Not a fan of his review style, but a decent review of an excellent entry-level AR.

    I've owned a Sport since last summer and it's been great. Non- professionals that spend big bucks on DD, BCM, KAC, Noveske, etc. will often rag on guns like the Sport because they believe it diminishes the value of their rifle and will defend their purchase fiercely. People who take their AR's to the range once a month will be just as well served by the Sport as they would a $1200 AR. The omission of a DC/FA was in my opinion for product segmentation rather than reducing costs. If you are buying one with the intent on adding all the stuff S&W omitted, I'd suggest just buying a 6920. If your satisfied with it as-is, then it's worth it.

    Sorry but as good as hickok45's reviews are they don't go into the depth that nutnfancy's do. I like them both. And last I checked hickok45 doesn't really review anything but firearms.

    Annoying or not nutnfancy does a good, thorough, job. 99% of such reviewers and videos on YouTube are far FAR worse.

    It's hard for me to watch 30+ minutes of anybody.
