Just got a call from my guy and they're on back order. I'm gonna have put some time in and see if I can locate one at a shop somewhere. Otherwise I'll put in an order and have to just wait I guess.

Just saw a couple at a LGS over the weekend here. Are you anywhere near eastern Iowa?

NJ. So it must be "compliant".

There are lots of 15-22s here also but not NJ,NY, CA compliant. I just swapped for a GSG AK47 (22lr) yesterday. It was a NY gun and came with a large mag but only 10 rd capacity. As I'm in FL I broke the mag open and made it into a 24 by removing plastic inserts. Wasn't easy, had 10 screws and was glued.

I'm just looking for a little plinker that's relatively accurate to throw a small scope on. Something my 9yo can shoot is a plus.( And he would just look bad ass on the firing line with an AR. Lol)

Thanks in advance for any and all input and advice.
I have one and love it. I've used a red dot, Iron sights, an inexpensive 4-12 Scope, and a bi-pod. I can routinely put shots in a dime's diameter all day with the scope with my 70 years old eyes! I love it. I think it's just pure fun, well made, and easy to maintain.

Thanks again for all the great responses guys. Quick question, being in NJ I only have 2 models to choose from, what is the difference between the standard 15-22 and the "Performance Center" 15-22? Is it worth the extra $250?

If you look at the S&W site, you can hit both models and check compare. It looks like the performance is 1.5 in longer barrel, has better grip and weighs nearly 2 lbs less. I'm curious how they reduced the weight.

IMO, if it's your nice, fun rifle and not for competition, save the $250.

The only "performance" difference I really see is the trigger. And from what I understand, it will accept any drop in aftermarket AR trigger. So it can always be upgraded later.

I asked my neighbor to put the order in last night. I told him he was gonna end up playing with mine more then his .223 AR. He said he was thinking the same thing, so he's ordering two. Now the worst part of all, waiting. I found a couple online but none were NJ compliant, so I figured I'd just order it. Gives me time to stock up on accessories and mags. Since I'm limited to 10 round mags I'm gonna need a handful.

I'd be be stocking up on ammo. 22lr is still scarce. Get it when you can.
