This next series of photos help me document the "as received" condition of the M&P15-22 Sport Rifle.  Just as you would expect from a new rifle, it came in perfect condition without any visible issues.

First Impressions

Since I have already owned a M&P15-22 rifle for about 5 years, it is hard to give an unbiased first impression on the rifle.  One thing that has always stood out is that the M&P15-22 is very light weight.  I am a fan of slim handguards and this new rifle having them is a great improvement from my perspective.  The Magpul MBUS flip-up sights are also an improvement over the original sights.
