    Okay, finally time to get the old AR and I really need some suggestions. I have decided on Daniel Defense and M&P 15. Found both for around $1000 which is definitely my price range. Need some pros and cons between the two. DD is M4 carbine. What do you guys think? By the way, I'm not just plinking at the range......I wanna knock the dyck off a hummingbird. In Other words.....using for self-defense too.

    Both quality ARs. Really depends on which models. Personally, I think the S&W M&P Optics Ready model, which can be had from about 800 bucks more or less depending on where you find them, is a steal for the quality you get. Fit and finish are flawless AND leaves room for a decent scope (like a Nikon M223) or a first class set of iron sights like Troy or YH BUIS.

    A choice between two great rifles is a pleasure. For me, I made it in favor of the S&W but you can't go wrong with either , IMHO.

    I would say it's a good problem to have when choosing between the two.

    I'd say DD. I had a M&P and liked it alot. Ended up selling it and then of course wanting another. Went with a RRA and like it ALOT. But have also considered adding a DD too the collection as well. :cool:

    if those are your two options, dd hands down. the dd is more of a fighting carbine.

    I have not seen a DD for less than $1200.-, sounds like you found a great deal. In Socal the M&P's run $200.- less, you may want to wait and look at the new M&P Sporter; it's retail is about $700.- and it uses the same lower as all the other M&P's.
