Is Smith & Wesson M&P15 Sport any good?

I'm looking to get an AR and found a deal on an M&P15 Sport. I'm wondering if anyone has any thoughts on them? What kind of accuracy can I expect?
I understand that they are an "entry level" AR and don't have the dust cover or forward assist, but is it a good gun otherwise? I've also heard they have a cheaper barrel- is it still a decent barrel or a pos? Will all the standard AR accessories fit it?
I'm just planning to leave it in the pickup for coyotes and such- and maybe wolves at some point.
I know that's a lot of questions, but I don't want to waste my time or money if it's not a good gun.
Thanks for the help!

I bought my wife one about 2 yrs ago and its been a great rifle. No jams so far. The barrel is a 1/8 5r and shoots 1 moa with 60 gr tap.

I'll try to post a pic.

SW is ok

The Ruger with piston operation seems to be the new direction
