Look, I am not saying it can't be done, I am just saying watch your step when it involves doing anything inside the receivers. (by the way, U-tube is blocked on the computer I use, so I can't go to any of the vids you mentioned). And a lot of folks have been arrested for doing stuff on youtube, so don't take their word as gospel as far as being legal. If a stock MP 22 can work with the slide fire with no changes, great. Most AR .22LR's can't because of too low recoil. Good luck with whatever you decide to do. I just don't want to read about anyone on this forum having to face the ATF.
I finally got to a computer that youtube wasn't blocked on, and it looks like the Slide Fire will work on a M&P 22LRL AR, without any mods not commercially available. You just have to get a 3 1/2 lb pull trigger , lube the outside of the faux buffer tube, and file the slide fire stock to accomodate the trigger guard according to the vid. OK, I was wrong on this one. Hell, I might get one now.

Ill say this: using your left hand and pulling forward as your trigger can be akward at first. After some practice i found that i can hold forward with steady pressure and use my trigger finger to press against that little finger rest as if that were my trigger. Much easier to control bursts, control recoil, and be more accurate with. By using this method and doing short bursts, i can keep a 30 round mag inside a torso sized target at 25 yards. I never shoot further than that with this rifle so i cant say what it would do at longer distances. But whatever caliber you decide to go with, STOCK UP! Once you get the hang of it, its too hard to put down

To everyone who had suggestions to what type of stock I should go with.. I broke down and went with the Magpul ace stock. It is a solid peace and gave my rifle and extra inch in length vs the factory stocks. It's gonna take some getting use to. The few ounces it gave to the weight helps keep the barrel rise low.
I appreciate everyone's input and view points with my over all choice.
