Editor’s Note:

The S&W M&P Sport II was long considered the best budget starter AR-15, but those days are well behind us. These are well-built and reliable guns, but a lack of updates to the furniture, barrel twist rates, and gas system length has led to other guns in the same price bracket taking the place of the Sport II.

By The Numbers - Smith & Wesson M&P Sport II

"I suspect this number should be a little higher, but for my sample size of one…couple hiccups to deal with. But overall it runs great." - Sean Curtis
The gas block and stock furniture limit customization without a significant overhaul.
Standard fare here. Solid AR-15 ergonomics with basic furniture.
