    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!
