S&W M&P AR 5.56 Review


This is an incredible weapon. Perfect for the target / competitive shooter. This is a semi-auto rifle and it is incredibly smooth. This weapon has very little recoil making it incredible fun for target shooting and competitions. I have this weapon in a 5.56 caliber, but it can also be chambered in a .223 and .22 caliber to reduce ammo costs.

I added a red dot sight with zero magnification on my weapon system and tested it out to 25, 50, 100, and 200 yards. At 25, and 50 yards I am able to shoot a 1 inch diameter grouping. At 100 yards I am able to shoot a grouping within 4 inches diameter. At 200 yards I begin to see a bit of accuracy loss (or maybe it's just me), but I am still able to group within a 1 foot diameter.

This is a seriously impressive weapon and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a little Sunday afternoon target shooting.
