Excellent data and very thorough. Just what I needed to know 👍
Really appreciate your channel man. Good content and your knowledge of rifles is amazing. Too bad your not in charge of colt… maybe they would be producing a civilian .308
Just get a sig tread 716i or an aero.
You would at least get a free float hand guard, non base model stock and potentially a better barrel.
Looks good for the money!
Great video. Thanks for sprinkling the knowledge brother🤙🇺🇸👍
That’s quite the telescope🔭 you’ve got mounted on there. Steve
Since I’ve found your channel I’ve noticed i see if you’ve made a video of a gun I like before buying it. Good job brother !!!
I have both the M&P 10 & 15. Love them both with Magpul furniture upgrades and Midwest Industries handguards. I haven’t tried many different types of ammo in the M&P 10. Just Remington 180 grain and Federal 150 grain and get 1.5” with both with the 16” barrel. My M&P 15 gets about 1.5 with Zinc Point 62 grain fmj. This weekend I’ll be trying 75 grain federal fmj to test stability out of the 1:9 twist barrel. Hope it works, but then again if it don’t it will justify buying an LWRC IC DI 😎🤣🤣🤣🤣
Lower receiver is nice, barrel, trigger, buffer and gas block is garbage.
Another fantastic video. Grateful to have access to this expert knowledge.
I have the 16in version. Replaced the gas block and put a full float handguard on it and I’ll take the Pepsi challenge out to 750yds with any large frame ar. The fit to upper n lower is great it you notice the bumpers in all 4 corners of the upper. Once you get rid of the delta ring and that huge hunky gas block and install a quality low pro GB and full floated HG it’s much more accurate
What is that chickenshit gas block????
That’s disappointing about the barrel being inaccurate after heating up..
Seriously Chris! Been trying to find a good price on one of these for two years and you had to go and tell everyone they are the best deal in the .308 AR world! 😋 Thanks for all the work you put into informative videos.
june 23rd 2021: S&W doubled its sales in a year.
Jesus, that scope just made a chonky boi of that lightweight AR10. BTW, bolt is proprietary and S&W will not sell you a replacement. Have to send the whole rifle back.
Not going to win any beauty awards that for sure😄
Got the same model in 16 in. Got a lemon..you got lucky..sending it back
Since when is 4140 a specification for stainless steel?????
SOTAR wouldn’t like seeing the donut and mouse turd buffer with the extractor spring.
Jesus Loves You
Thanks for the video
The M&P sport 2 AR15 has the chrome plated bolt carrier internals and runs steel case and brass case ammo with 100% reliability and excellent accuracy in my experience
Weird, my experience has been that Aero is surprisingly well made.
I’ve had mine for about 4 years. Upgraded to a Magpul MOE hand guard and changed out the muzzle device. I have been very happy and get anywhere from 1-2 MOA with good quality ammo. 168gr AMAX seems to be the best for mine. Thanks for the review!
My gas port was too small.. had to have it bored out.. piss poor production for a company like this… this is a pretty common issue if you look are the internet.
I bought this rifle years ago based on the glowing review of Nut’n Fancy. I will say that from his original review that the gun will not cycle with a suppressor unless you put on an adjustable gas block. I know from my own experience that the recoil is painful from that butt stock because the rifle is pretty light. I also know that it was quite hard to find replacement hand guards.
I have a question for my M&P 10 when the bolt is forward and I try to load my 10 round magazine into the magazine well it doesn’t hold the magazine, but when the bolt is back the magazine loads just fine. Any ideas on how to fix that issue?
I got these for my a couple of my kids first AR.. I figure they can dial them in as they choose… Great starter AR-10…
S&w won’t sell you a BCG or bolt. Since it’s proprietary you’re out of luck
What was that odd little bolt stick at 13:07? It cycled, but it looked like the BCG had second thoughts about rechambering.
Always wanted one
Seems to me that their design philosophy is to use adequate parts rather than high end for the parts that are very likely to be upgraded like the buffer tube and handguard etc. Each owner will have their own preferences for such upgrades. Why have them pay for high end parts that they are only going to replace? I like this company.
You need to seriously think about getting a tv show, or start writing articles in gun magazines. Your knowledge is unquestionable.
That rifle with that particular scope and the muzzle break make a beautiful profile.
Thanks for the simple warts and all reviews. I have a 5.56 Sporter and it has been completely reliable, even after fairly rapid fire.
A .308 AR is on my wish list, and the S&W offering is way up there. My guess is that modification is assumed, hence the cheap handguard and screw-secured gas block.
Spot on about it the buffer in my experience. I’m running a 9mm heavy buffer in mine but it’s normally shot with a silencer. Definitely over gassed it will cycle with it and no can. Swapping out the gas block for a adjustable one would be good thing. A heck of a lot better to carry vs my Armalite AR-10 T from the AWB years 😒 it’s a pig and stuck with the crap mod M1A magazines.
I’d rather have one M&P 10 than a M1A any day.
basically get the 16" and replace the barrel and put a H2 buffer in it.
Sounds like an HBAR configuration would really help accuracy, but the tradeoff is extra weight.
How is the accuracy on this rifle?
Where tf can you buy this thing?
Definitely do a review on the DD5 V3/V4. Curious on your thoughts about the updated BCG with an integrated buffer system alongside the somewhat longer gas system. Gas block is now adjustable and the updated BCG coating seems to be noticeably slicker than chrome. Plus they’re using an updated bolt material.
Looks like these were also picked up for use by the Argentine Marine Forces.
Can you shoot 7.62 with these ?
No disrespect but M&P 15 is not in the same league as Aero not even in the same conversation brother… Sorry but Aero has come a long way.
I wish i had a gunsmith friend….😆
I buy nothing from Smith.. Had timing issues with a 29-2 and a 686. Sent them both to the factory got them back and the same issues…Gave the 686 to my son and sold the 29-2 to a good friend that really had to have it. Me? I bought a Glock 29 and have had no issues…..
What do you think, would you go for the 18" or the 16" version?
With hand loaded Hornady A-Max’s I get 1/4-1/2 MOA. FMJ’s 1-1 1/4 MOA constantly. That dang clamp on gas block does migrate though. Someone needs to make a jig so the gas block can be drilled and pined.
That non-pinned gas block and buffer is a no go for me.
