    What's there to think about? It's got a good rep. I've seen them new flattop receiver as low as $600. Grown men's erector set. Everyone needs an AR, and 2 or 3 thousand rounds stashed away for a rainy day. Once it's dialed in, you're pegging apples at 200 yards, Newton, even if you're a terrible shot.

    the receiver that comes with it does it allow to put a carry handle on it? also if there is a carry handle installed could the rear sight still be used?

    Yes you can mount a carry handle. You wont need the rear sight if you do mount one as the sight is part of the handle. It isnt what I would buy with my money. For another 200-300 dollars you could have a top of the line gun. Personally I would continue to save and buy a Colt, BCM or other top manufacturer, but if you must buy now you could do worse.

    My wife and I are going to be buying 5 or 6 of these over the next year. This is the new S&W that I have actually seen as low as $475 in a shop an hour or so South of our town. With that price, I want to stock up enough so my kids can have one even if the libs get another AWB through.

    This is a basic rifle by the way. No forward assist, no dust cover. Just a good basic HD rifle.

    All I need is a basic range rifle, that's why I don't want to spend $300+ on the same rifle but with extras already.

    When I go the the rifle range, I shoot mostly .22 out of the Ruger 10/22. I can toast 500 rounds for under $30 shooting at 25-150 yds. Then I bring out the AR, shoot another 50 or so. My point: your first rifle should be something you can shoot a lot for not much money. Get good with that before you dive in the deep end. I've got maybe $250 tied up in the Ruger with all the goodies, $1K in the Colt AR + $.50 a pop. JMO.

    Lightbulb .

    i have owned a marlin model 60 semi auto .22 and a marlin 917v 17 hmr and loved them, sold them and now want a more powerful rifle that isnt too expensive to shoot. Im ok with .40-.50 a pop because i go to the range about once every 2 months but i spend a while there when i do go, i have always wanted an AR15 so why not get one......LIFE IS TOO SHORT to worry about money IMO.

    I couldn't agree more. Looking at AK's on Funbroker right now. That's another option for you too. I also want a .357 lever action. Can I borrow a few dollars? I have Paypal :)

    It talks about how the gun operated during instructor training in the Arizona Desert. It also explains some of the features of the gun.

    At CDNN Investments,you can get a Target Sports A2 carry handle for 39.99 + 9.99 shipping,I've used these on my AR's and they are pretty decent for what most people use an AR15 for,they have elevation and windage

    Smith&Wesson is top tier now.

    I guess it comes down to a matter of opinion. The Smith&Wesson that he is considering is definitely an entry level gun, that is fine if you don't think you will be running it hard. To buy what would be considered a "top tier Smith&Wesson" is going to be considerably more money. I don't know if things have changed but even then they haven't been at the top of the list with some materials used (i.e barrel steel). At that point I would feel like I was better off buying from one of the professional grade manufacturers for the same money but to each his own. I don't think its a bad gun especially it will basically be a paper puncher just not what I would buy with the other options available.
