M&p 15-22
 
Looking for a .22 for my son. Got a line on a decently priced M&P. Reviews look good, but thoughts on holding out for a Ruger 10/22 of Marlin 60 instead? This would be for plinking mostly.

Go for the 15-22. In my opinion better than the other two. Not that the Ruger or Marlin are not quality rifles, the Smith is just better.

You can't go wrong with a ruger 10/22. Hell buy 10 of them, if you get lucky enough to find one. I can't say for the Marlin 60 as I do not own one but generally I have heard that marlines are great, light little guns. Either way, I would start him off with a 10/22.

I have a 10/22 carbine and a 10/22 compact. Love em both. I also have a Colt M4 22lr. Guess which one my son grabs off the wall everytime we go out to shoot?

Thanks. Went with the M&P. It was the only one I've seen and being on the AR platform it would offer him some additional experience without sacrificing accuracy. My LGS has a number of Ruger 10/22's in stock. It was so tempting to buy two rifles.

I don't know why that posted upside down.

I own both the 10/22 and the 15-22. Despite having modded the 10/22 with a trigger, auto bolt-release, etc., the 15/22 comes with me to the range way more often. I guess it depends on the POU, which for me is mostly plinking.

You'll enjoy it! Slap a cheap red dot on it and you'll have hours of cheap fun.
