Smith & Wesson Announces New M&P10 Sport Rifle in .308 Win

    Why not start with the price? At 1,049 USD this is a great price for an AR10 and a product I probably wouldn’t like to see or hear about if I was competitor.

    Sure, a lot of the polymer furniture isn’t of the highest and coolest factor, but that’s something we chose on an individual basis at a later stage anyway?

    It’s funny that S&W call it “Sports”, then puts “Purpose” as “Home Protection and Hunting”.
