I'm pretty sure the sporter won't have a chrome moly barrel though.

I really like the DDM4 from DD that's the AR I want to end up with but I can't justify the price when I built my AR for 1/2 tue price.

I have an MP15 and love it, but if you can get the DD for the same price, I would go with the DD... Good luck and don't forget the pics when she comes in...

Re the Smith and Wesson Sport models. No dust cover or bolt assist. The bbl. is 1/8 but not chrome lined like the 1/9 on the originals. It really is a gun marketed to casual shooters and entry level AR buyers on a tight budget.

As I stated, the Optics Ready model may be the real buy in the class. Everything but sights and who doesn't change those. With Military discounts, some at the S&W boards have bought them for 599!

Again, while the DD enjoys a great rep., the M&P has been flawless for me. Absolutely no reason to knock it and it drips with quality.

i dont have any experience with dd but from what i hear they are very good, i do however own a m&p-15 moe edition that i picked up for 900 and it has chewed up and spit out everything from tula to federal to straight up m855 nato green tip in less than perfect conditions. its more accurate than i am although the eotech i put on there helps me out a ton. im sure either choice will work out in your favor

yep, its just like the dpms "sporticle" just a stripped ar. imo, not worth it.

The question is, are they both optioned the same?

If yes, for the same price I'd go DD.

I followed my first instinct which by the way has kept me alive for many years. I went with Daniel Defense because the M4 Carbine was a better fit for me as far as all the accessories I have collected. Magpul has been a very good friend of mine for quite a while. Pics to follow soon!!
