Smith & Wesson M&P AR15-22. It's my more fun than a barrel of monkeys gun. I love it. It is by far the easiest rifle design to maintain. Separate the upper and lower, pull the bolt, and cleaning is amazingly simple.

If you buy one, you will not be disappointed.

I have the 15-22 and absolutely love it so far. (have owned it less than a week ). The weapon is fantastic for plinking, varmints, etc. I like it better than my AR15 for a couple reasons - namely, cost per shot.

My son's first time shooting the 15-22:

Nearly $500? yikes! Right at $400 retail around here. Still, good chunk of change.

I paid around $500 for mine, but it was right at the time the 2nd gen came out and they were flying off the shelves. I've seen a number of lower price points around $400 since then.

I have 2 of the 10-22 rifles and they are good guns. My wife won a MP15-22 at the FNRA Dinner and it is a very nice little rifle. (It was my ticket but it is hers.) Much easier to clean than any other semi 22lr I have had. I put a laser on it and a 1.5-6x scope on it and it is very accurate. It has eaten a lot of ammo the Rugers would not. Only fail was with Velocitors which are pretty hot. Rapid fire from the hip with the laser is a lot of fun. The butt stock adjusts to fit almost anyone and you can add lots of different stuff to the fore end. Laser and bipod in her case.

i agree with jtj the mp15-22 is a sweet "plinker" but what i cant get around is why would you spend between 400-500(depending on area lived in) for a polymer gun that you can not change barrel on when you can spend 447 for the cmmg that uses true ar parts were you could put a 223 upper on it and truely have a ar-15 (since the lower is a true ar-15) you'd have the big boy gun only starting backwards with the 22 first but i believe it is better option than s&w mp-22
just my 2 cents
SEMPER-FI

This is why I did not buy the AR Upper:

Wanted an additional rifle. I can shoot the AR while my Son or Daughter or Wife shoots the 22 right beside me. When the zombie squirrels attack, we double our chances of a hit. It's like getting the CMMG upper AND a "FREE!" Polymer lower!

A Remington Nylon 66 is an excellent plinking & small game hunting rifle, If you can find one for sale grab it.?
