Smith and Wesson M&P 10

Any owners here of the S& W M&P 10. I would like to hear your feed back. I was told they hold sub minute groups.

With the cost of the weapon, I had my doubts. I saw one shot this week equipped with an 1 MOA dot EOTech. The owner let a guy I know shoot his rifle. Other than the EOTech it was an out of the box rifle.

I dry fired it, but did not shoot it. The trigger was great for a production AR.

The weapon outshot the optics, with an impressive 3 rounds into one tight distorted hole at 50 yards. The owner claims sub minute at a hundred and the rifle was so new that he hadn't gone any further out.

I would love to hear from any owners that have mounted better optics and have put more than just a few rounds down range.

Is this the normal or was this weapon an exception.

Thanks

Atlantic tactical has them for $1200 shipped last time I checked. They are backordered though.

Have you heard any thing about them or know anyone that owns one?

Supposedly there is a store in Richmond VA that has them hanging on the wall.

A couple guys here in Cali have them, they are good rifles but very basic. Rumor is they can group around MOA with decent ammunition.

I have an unfired ORC with irons I have just installed. 1200 is not a bad price as its pretty close to MSRP these days and that is about all anyone can ask right now.

The ORC can be found around CA, you are just going to have to settle for the bullet button.

One day, when I can find and afford the ammo, I will see how she handles at a hundred and will revisit this thread.

Who knows, might happen this weekend.

as a (very) general rule, I doubt ANY AR/M16 is going to shoot ANY ammo CONSISTENTLY into 1MOA or less without some type of free-float tube/handguards. Yes, I am sure there are exceptions, but there is a reason why virtually all match AR's use free-float handguards/tubes.

Likewise, the typical 6-7 pound trigger on most stock ARs (and M16s) doesn't help much in group shooting either, but the mechanical accuracy comes from not having the pressure on the barrel.
