Fair enough, though I think after adding on the Troy sights the price difference between the Smith and Noveske will be negligible. Also, the Noveske uses the latest VTAC/Troy freefloat tube, while the S&W is using the older J&P system.
I think the upcoming S&W VTAC with the Troy accessories and fluted barrel in the video looks very intriguing and might be worth waiting for.
You might want to send a note to Grant at G&R and see if he can beat that price (assuming he stocks the S&W VTAC model). The VTAC rifle is certainly the best of S&W's lineup. Good luck.
