Default New Sport owner!

Thought I would post the obligatory pic of my new sport! Went to the range last night and it shoots like a dream. I didn't have to adjust the windage at all but need to raise the front post a little as I am hitting fairly low out of the box. Cant wait to put more rounds through it!

And the sickness begins. Wrap your wallet with duck tape.

Congrats on your new rifle. I purchased the same model rifle this past Monday. Just ordered some additional magazines, reloading dies and components for reloading. New ammo is expensive.

I went down to myou local gun store to buy a bushmaster and got talked into my m& p sport. Got it for 600. Never owned one before. I hope I made a good choice. I was worried about the price. And reliability and quality being the bushmaster was 700.

Same answer as your doubts on the other thread.

I also looked at a Bushmaster, a Ruger, DPMS and a Sig Swat.

Welcome, you've done well. The general rule of thumb is you get what you pay for, with the Sport, you always get more.

My sport is about 4 years ago shortly after they first came out. I have about 1500 rounds through it. Paid $650 before the madness started. I have never had an issue with it. Being a lefty, I do not miss the forward assist getting in the way of my Raptor charging handle.
