Is this leaps and bounds better than the SW M&P15 SII?
No

Also curious on this question.

Can folks with good knowledge provide some analysis on how to figure out which rifle will best meet a users needs? This isn't a gun/hunting forum - I suspect a lot of people would appreciate education on this topic from RFDers who can help others find the best deals in this category.

TIA
Between the two, the one to buy would be the S&W and you dont need to buy any iron sights.

When I was deciding between this and the S&W, I ended up going with the S&W.

I've been extremely happy with it.

I have a number of rifles, but anything that can be easily modified to shoot full auto should be banned in Canada. My .02 cents.

No. I hate pencil barrels. M&P is a better buy IMO.

At the range, you'll be bored after a 100 rounds or so.
Best is to purchase several different types when on sale and bring a few to the range.
I've started to enjoy trap shooting more and at my local range, there's a 5 stand and skeet field that I spend more time at with a simple low cost pump action 12 guage.
Of course, playing a game is always more fun than punching paper. An entry level AR is an awesome way to experience various gun games. If you have an AR and a shotgun, definitely give 3 gun a chance. Boredom is alot less likely than addiction.

Well, first of all, this gun is restricted, so you can't use it for hunting. I don't really know what kind of "needs" one might have from a restricted gun, since you can only use it at the range. Non-restricted, that's a different story.

It is a restricted firearm. For the vast majority of normal RPAL holders, permitted uses are target practice/competition, instruction, and collecting.

Some assault rifles are non-restricted firearms and can be used for hunting: e.g. SKS, a purebred military semiautomatic carbine. Not the best choice, but usable for deer with proper ammo.

Only if used to assault someone. Same as the feared "assault hammer", "assault baseball bat", and the ever feared "assault knife" that never runs out of ammo.
This is no more dangerous than any other semi automatic firearm and less lethal than many more hunting firearms .
What's normal to you ? Is there a definition of normal ?
It is a completely legal sport and hobby, if that's what you were asking.
