Another good thing about the S&W that I want to point out is they're offering five Magpul PMags with the purchase of an M&P15 until December 31, 2009. However if you live in a state that restricts standard capacity magazines, your only option is five 10 round aluminum mags.
Thanks everyone for the feedback. If I do get another AR15 which there is a good chance I will.... it'll most certainly be the Colt 6920.

Enjoy your new rifle! The M&P is just fine. The Colt rifles are solid to be sure but, the ones that are sold to one and all (read semi auto only) are not mil-spec. The difference is a matter of a set of pins, BCG, different hammer and of course the absence of the auto sear. Some of the semi auto guns from Colt do not have the chromed chamber/bore and some do not have a 1 in 7 twist rate in the bbl. The 6920s do though. The M&P, and a host of other AR-15s, are great rifles and will give you tens of thousands of rounds of reliable service. I happen have a Colt issued to me. It is a mil-spec gun and it runs no better or worse than the 2 M&P rifles that were just purchased by my agency. Again, enjoy and be confident that, with routine maintenance, the M&P will run great.

I have a DTI and DPMS built AR... I spent many years with the colt. I have to disagree with this... Granted Ive not had my current ar very long but comparing all the guts and what makes the DTI from the colt, the DTI is just as well built, I cant speak for the spikes or s&w tho ive never seen one or tore one down.

Just because its Mil spec doesnt mean its the greatest thing EVAR, I spent 8 years active army as an 95B MP and can tell you straight up, alot of Mil Spec stuff is CRAP. Mil spec means nothin to me after my 8 years active a 4 years reserve time of playing with milspec issued equipment..
FYI:: Im not trying to be an ass or start a ******* match, I'm just speaking from what Ive seen and experienced first hand.
