It's not out of spec cartridges, it is uber tight chambers.

Properly stake the carrier key screws or replace the BCG.
Stake the castle nut on the receiver extension (if DPMS lower).
Replace the LPK with a Colt, PSA, DD or BCM.
Sell it on Gunbroker
Most importantly - don't use it as your HD weapon. Murphy loves bottom feeders.

Do not rush take your time find the right deal and weapon. There is not now nor will there be a shortage of AR/M4 plat form weapons. They are not hard to get. There maybe a reason the dealer you are at has an issue but the Ar/M4 and AK variants are all over the place for now.
Local Fleet farm store has case full of them.

After reading all the great reviews and watching countless videos I purchased the M&P Sport out of Alabama for $639 and I get to go pick it up at my local FFL today. I figured with the money I saved I have plenty left over for some bulk ammo and plenty of "accessories" :)

Congratulations, you've done much better than you would have with the OP rifle you were considering. Enjoy the M&P.

M&P's are not considered to be "the best" out there but I've never met anyone who wasn't very happy with them. I have one and it has been super. I think you will be very pleased with it!
ETA: And since you got such a good price you can put all kinds of bling on it and it will still be cheaper than the original one you were looking at. Invest some of that extra cash into about a dozen good mags.
