I am completely new to the AR platform and talked my dad into buying one today. Our dealer knocked the price from $1399 down to $1099 plus a $100 mail in rebate, leaving the total cost at $999 for the M&P. I am assuming this is a great deal and plan on ordering mine tomorrow. The only reason I didnt order it today, is because I wanted to pick the brains of some more experienced individuals, which is why I am here right now. Also, I would like some information on break in. Is it necessary, and if it is, what is the correct process? What would be the drawbacks to owning the M&P if any? Any and all information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for helping a newb out.
