I have one sitting in the closet for my 12 year old grandaughter's Christmas present. Really a nice solid little gun.

Glad you found what you wanted, Jon! I do need to correct you though, the Colt/Umarex .22 most certainly does have a bolt hold open, it's internal.

I think the M&P is one of the best "tatical" .22s around. I can't remember which one but a firearms magazine named it the best rifle of 2010 which must mean something!

It's finicky about what ammo it will readily digest. But what .22 other than a revolver isn't finicky?

I love mine.

I love my Colt/Umarex M4 OPS.
It's reliable, super accurate, and a blast to shoot!

got to compair a colt 15-22 and a mp 15-22 side by side. the m&p felt better the safety selector works just like a regular ar15 90 degree turn. the bolt hold open is functional. the fore grip is not removeable from what i could tell so your stuck with the rail its got. the buffer tube is part of the reciever not a good thing in my opinion. lower reciever takes regular ar trigger parts. takedown is the same pushpin system as regular AR15s

the colt's reciever didnt feel like aluminum more like the frame of my gsg 1911-22 but that coulda been the finish they used dunno. the safety selector rotated 180 degrees and was very very loose. the bolt hold open catch was cosmetic and non functional. had to release the bolt by pulling the charging handle. lower reciever is not compatable with regular AR parts. needs tools for takedown

magazines was another issue plus and minus for both so in that area its a dead tie. MP mags are ~20$ each hold 25 rounds and are very sturdy. colt mags are 30$ each did not feel as rugged but hold 30 rounds. both semmed like they would be very easy to load.

im glad i picked the M&P over the colt it felt like a better gun overall with only a few knocks against it. the colt was too far away from the ar15 format to do what i wanted.

Did you get it yet? Or were you just looking at one of the black ones? I was at my LGS today and they had the pink one. I can definitely say that it will stand out. Kinda neat looking though.
