    Just attended a Patrol Rifle School in Oklahoma for 3 days in April. There was a plethora of different makes of M4's, including five M & P's. FOUR of these had issues with failure to feed, extract, etc. Four out of Five failure to function correctly is not good. I borrowed one of these because it was having a "magazine" issue, Took a 30 rd mag that had worked flawlessley (sp?) in my RRA & put it in the M & P. First, it wouldn't lock into place without taking out about three rounds. Then it locked in place, but I had to literally pull back with all my might to get the bolt to the rear to jack a round in the chamber. Then, when I tried to extract it with the T handle, it was again tough to do. One of my fellow officers bought one about three months ago & he also had an issue with it & had to have it shipped back to the factory. These were all brand new rifles. Don't put your life on the line with this one- I believe there's a design flaw of spacing between the magazine & the bottom of the bolt carrier group. I would rate it a ZERO if I could.

    I think that this carbine is better then the Colt M4 that i carried in Afghanistan. If only it came with the full auto or three round burst capability

    I have owned my 15t for alittle over a year. I initially had failures to feed as well. I checked everything I could think of. For me, it was the ammo. My Smith didn't like the the Hornady 75gr. training ammo. No matter what type of magazine I used with this ammo, it was a no go. The Hornady 62gr and 60gr functioned without a flaw as did various brands of 55gr. The weapon is deadly accurate. After changing ammo, I had no failures to feed. Love the fold down sights. Switching my EOtech 552 for a Trijicon RX30-23. Better sight and slightly less expensive. After breaking in the trigger pull the weapon is very smooth. My dept is going with the 15t for our tactical unit. I have no regrets about buying this weapon.

    Dead On right out of the box! I switched from the Bushmaster to the S&W and am very happy with that decision. You can't beat all the features for the price...especially when compared to the Rock River. Great Weapon.

    This is a very good rifle right out of the box. I bought the third generation production line of the rifle after they (S&W) fixed all the problems with the failure to feed issues. I have shot over 2500 rounds (Winchester .556 Q3131) through the rifle without a single malfunction.

    I bought mine in 2007. Took it right out of the box, ran a bore snake through it, wiped a minimal amount of lube on the bolt/carrier group and that was it. Took it to the range for a torture test to see what it would take to for FTF, FTE, stovepipes and accuracy. After 600 rounds (rapid fire, slow fire and mag dumps) of running it basically bone dry I can honestly say that I had not one single failure of any type at all.

    I ran good ammo, junk ammo, Ball, HP, Ballistic Tip, 40gr-70gr rounds. It ate everything I fed it and wanted more. I have been involved with firearms since I was 19 and have never seen any gas impingement AR function as well as mine did.

    It know sits in my front seat and is my go to partner when it looks like the shit might hit the fan. The shotgun stays in the trunk now, I only use it for alligators and hogs now.

    it has smooth cycling, low recoil and the extra rails are great to add extra gear
