Has anyone gotten on yet?? I would be interested in your thoughts on the gun.
I looked at the Ruger and it is a 10-22 with a cool stock, and the Colt which is made by Walther, but I haven't been able to get my hands on look yet.

Anybody seen one

Looks good BrokenArrow! What did you put in the finger grooves of the rail panels? Is that grip tabe or some type or rubbarized covering?

Thanks

I've noticed that you guys have the larger mags. Is there a block in there that limits it to 10rds? I've seen pictures of the shortened "compliant" mags and thats what I thought the 15-22 would come with in Cali.

Yes...I got mine from rrages.com. Actually these 10/30's are easier to get right now that dedicated 10 rounders which are in very short supply. And look way better.

So is the factory mag that comes with the gun a shortened mag, or a full size with a block?

I'ts a 25 with a rivet block, at least mine is. You can get a dealer to get the 25 and block it to 10 before selling.

Finally got my 15-22 this Friday and took it out to the desert to shoot. I've had all the accessories for about a month and a half so you can say i have been waiting on this gun for awhile. Got a little Duracoat happy but it came out pretty good, I used the Magpul FDE from MidwayUSA. Put through a box of the Federal 525 pack from Cabelas and only had 2 FTE due to loading. I must say I'm happy with going with the 15-22 and it is a fun gun to shoot, would have been more fun if I could use a full magazine(Had to get the 10/25 mags from RRAGES for Cali rules). I think my M&P15 is going to take a backseat for awhile. Also uploaded the rest of the family, Sig P229 and Sig Mosquito.

Just freed a S&W MP 15-22 earlier today. I'm very pleased with it because of the AR-15 like controls. That won me over from the Walther/Colt M4 .22 despite its metal receiver. No FTF's, OOB's, stove pipes etc. in its first 400 rounds. I used CCI mini mags. Will post pics soon.

Yeah, but this is a steal at $459.99 out the door with the 20% off coupon, how can you pass this up!! lol...who needs food and shelter when you have this badboy! Live off the land! lol:cool2:

They are selling them like hotcakes to, they are getting hard to find, Turners is out, and allot of the Big 5 stores are out of them.

@ Deebix...that looks nice! Where did you get that sling? I like it.

ALSO, do these rifles have mil-spec buttstocks or commercial? I am guessing Mil-spec seeing it is a M&P.
How hard it is to change out the pistol grip and buttstock?
I have been wanting to do it in my 5.56 AR, but am not 100% shure how to go about changing the buttstock...and DIY threads on this?

The stock tube seems to be mil-spec. But be advised, its a 1 piece deal that's molded onto the lower receiver and won't come off like a real AR. But it works and its pretty solid. An aftermarket pistol grip is very easy to install. A lot of AR accesories can fit on these. Here's mine, will post updated pic later:

Argh! Would've waited if I knew. Wish the pistol version was out now for this. By the way, tried Remington's in mine to experiment, 100 rounds. I normally use CCI mini mags. There was a lot of smoke that came out of the ejection port every time, the rifle shot really lightly-almost like with subsonic .22's and a suppressor. CCI is the way to go. Will try some Federal bulk pack if I ever find any.

Rob,

Nice set up! I'm currently using a Primary Arms Micro red dot sight. It has been great. Used it in the rain and dropped it a few time to test its' zero holding abilities. So far, so good. I'm saving up for a real Aimpoint H-1. :)

Thanks for the info, BrokenArrow. I was wondering if you were using the real Aimpoint, but I'll definitely pick up the Primary Arms red dot after hearing results like that, nothing wrong with a decent low cost red dot. Obviously, got to use good ammo too.

Google around for the standard AR trigger assembly instructions. You don't actually have to remove the safety selector, it's enough to just slide the trigger group pins out and put in your new springs.

It's very easy once you see how it all fits. Just take a good look at how the existing parts are in there.

nothing wrong with that! Build fundamentals!
I prefer to shoot a new firearm with just irons for a while before I even consider optics. I like to know what it performs like in its natural state, plus its nice to know how to operate it with just irons if you optic goes out for whatever reason.

I had at least 1500 rounds through mine before I tossed on the optic.
Did the same with my AK.

Thanks man. I just picked it up and had one question...

My magazine (10/25 of course) didn't come with the loading assist button/thumb thing...I called Big 5 and he checked out his other mags from the other 15-22 boxes and he said they didn't have them either and that it was a CA compliance issue.

Is he just trying to cheat me out of a proper magazine, or is it really missing due to CA compliance? I've never heard of load assist buttons being outlawed.

Thank You, it is a beautiful rifle + light as a feather because of the polymer.

MrPlink

^ that's the way the 10rd mags are. Nothing illegal about the assist, just doesent come with them. Just use a small screw driver or allen wrench and u are GTG.

Thanks, I'll probably just make my own then with a screw and nut or something.

Get to go shooting her tomorrow. I read around and I have the version with blue spring which supposedly fixed all(or most) of the FTE/FTE problems. I cycled a few rounds through it yesterday and she fed and extracted like a champ.

Rebel Warrior

Just shot her and sighted her. The gun is really accurate with the iron sights. When I got used to it was hitting stuff at 75 yards 4/5 shots.

No jams except for one when the Remington Golden bullets were used. I went through like ten mags of them dirty ammo without a problem though. Federal ran clean with no jams. The Rem. Golden is soooo dirty my fingers were black loading them. The gun was filthy when I cleaned it.

My Brother is looking to pick up this AR or the Century AK-47 that Turners has on sale right now. Anyone know of any current coupons like the Big 5 one, or a place that has the M&P for sale at a good price?

The M&P15-22 is a .22LR AR. Not quite comparable to the 7.62 round the AK uses. :) If you are looking for just the M&P 15 (the 5.56 centerfire rifle), Big 5 doesn't carry it.
