Hey everyone,

The Smith and Wesson M&P 15-22 is on sale this weekend at BIG-5 for $469.99. I have wanted to get one for a while now and was wondering if all of the S&W M&P 15-22 are the same unless otherwise noted? I have seen a range of prices from $1000 - $470.00 and it looks like they are all SMITH & WESSON M&P 15-22 .22LR RIMFIRE CARTRIDGE SEMI-AUTOMATIC RIFLES. The BIG5 in this area will need to transfer this gun from another store ( at the advertised price ) so I cant see it before we start the paperwork. I just thought I should ask before I make the purchase.

This belongs in the rimfire section.

It's the real deal, just the base model like in the picture. Generally the more expensive ones are the MOE models featuring magpul stuff and a threaded barrel.

I heard they were good... but I'd still rather get a .223/5.56 AR instead ;)

Turners was advertising the Mossberg AR type 22L for $239

HOOKANDBOOK, I have one, really fun firearm and .22lr is cheap & plentiful. There are a couple of different editions, like the Magpul MOE 15/22 with all Magpul gear. The stock iron sights on the 15/22 are accurate and gtg with a little time spent on zeroing.

Go to the rimfire section on calguns and do a search, there are a lot of posts about the 15/22. You'll be happy with your purchase... but you can also wait for a 25% off coupon that doesn't exclude firearms and pick it up with that. Tell them to charge you the full price if it's on sale and apply the 25%, chances are it'll be far less.

It's good from what I have heard. It it mostly polymer and that's why I went with the Umarex Colt Walther M4 they have at big 5.

Sorry for posting in the wrong section...but I think that explains most of my confusion in regards to the M&P!!!!!!! Sorry guys I am really green when it comes to rifles or guns in general but I was thinking that a .22lr and a .223/5.56 was the same. I guess thats why I am finding so much of a price difference when shopping this style of gun. What I have looked at in person was a .223 and what BIG5 has is a 22lr.
