    That's MSRP too, street cost will be a little less.

    They seemed to have reneged on their deal with Clinton administration, their quality on their 1911 is getting rave reviews over at the 1911 forum, but the stated MSRP for the AR's is out of line, in my opinion.
    For me, its about proven reliability. Bushy and others have a proven, reliable AR. Who knows what components S&W will use. Also ,I already own and AR and saw the S&W shotgun fiasco.

    Hey why not, I never thought I'd see the Smith & Wesson logo on a 1911 either.

    There sure seems to be a lot of interest, and investment, in the AR market if this gun is the dismal failure some claim. We continue to hear complains about stopping power and reliability, that the military is going to replace, etc. There's even speculation that Sig may come out with an AR - I tend to doubt that. Anyway seems like everybody wants to get in on the 1911 and AR wave.

    Heres the REAL question.
    Who do they have doing the forging? For instance you have Anchor Harvey that does a lot of Bushy's and other fine AR's.

    You got the same style of lower and upper that Hesse made this AR will be total crap.

    Word to those looking for a new AR. Check who REALLY made it.
    Bushy makes some parts, but not all. You could have a AH upper and the guy with the generic AR next to you have the same upper on a $400 cheaper AR.

    I hope this is a good AR. Im sure many PD's will buy up S&W's ad campaign.

    doesn't appear to be anything diffrent than you can buy/build on your own, unless they keep the price reasonable I can't too many AR owners wanting 1.

    Very True but there are a lot of people who wont build one .

    If they get the prices low enough i think they will sell a ton also maybe some law Enforcement Sales?

    Plus i bet they will get a lot of buyers just because it says Smith and Wesson

    I really want a flattop AR. I think that even if the military switches up to another caliber, the 5.56 will always be available.
