As a first-time AR-15 buyer, the plethora of information on the internet is really overwhelming.
I’ve settled on buying either the S&W M&P Sport II (with Magpul upgrades) or the Colt LE6920 Magpul version plus a red dot on either.
This would be mostly used as a fun gun at the range and for home defense if it’s more accessible in the moment than my Glocks.
I just don’t know which would be a better choice (especially for a first-timer that doesn’t know too much about the AR-15 platform). The links for the guns the way they come are below. I would probably outfit the M&P Sport II with the same upgrades already on the Colt (Magpul handguard, pistol grip, stock), and then add a red dot to whichever I actually choose to go with.
For those of you that have more experience on the AR-15 platform than I do (or have experience with both guns), which would be your choice between the two?
I’ve looked into the BCM Mid 16 Mod 0 as well, which isn’t completely out of the picture.
