This thread is titled "M&P vs Ruger SR-22"...I am sorry that I got so far off of the original subject...

JonM..........Neither the Colt 22 cal and S&W M&P 22 cal have "controls" that are that close to the real thing.....The Colt is made closer to the real thing than the S&W (look at the ejection ports and lack of the dust cover on the S&W)...Also the S&W does not have the forward assist........They both have the bolt hold open on last shot......They both have easy to get magazines of various capacities and both will accept many of the same "tactical" accessories........I don't know about the drop in trigger packs????...........What is a "colt restamped umarex"?

As I said in the earlier post, I have both the Colt and S&W with several magazines each and a few accessories.......I feel that both rifles are equal in quality and functionality and a good value for the prices........I have no experience with any of the other 22 cal AR look a likes so I have no comment on them.............I am familiar with the 5.56 ARs, but sold mine and my AK 47s........

"Colt restamped Umarex" means Colt gave Umarex permission to put their name on it so they would sell more.

Colt doesn't make them.

Also, if someone wants an 22LR that is IDENTICAL to the real deal, why not just build an AR15 in 22LR?

As for the S&W not having the same controls, what's different? The 15-22s have a bolt release, an AR charging handle and the same mag release. It has ALL the same controls.

My Colt is made by Walther in Germany and imported (marketed) by Umarex...This is stamped on the right side of the receiver.......I always understood that "controls" meant fire selectors and safeties.......The bolt hold, non functional forward assist, and mag release, ect are part of the rifles mechanism.....These look a like rifles are usually dedicated 22 cal rifles and do not completely resemble the real thing and in most cases they will not inter change with dedicated 5.56 military ARs.........

Many people want to read too much into the name Colt, Smith&Wesson, and some of the other brand name AR type 22 cal rifles......They are just made to resemble not to completely duplicate the real thing regardless of who made them.

Adding a 22 cal upper to a 5.56 AR is a very good idea if that is the way you want to roll.......I sold my Bushmaster and had no desire to shoot 22 cal through it.....I wanted a dedicated 22 cal design and will probably buy more varieties as they become available.......

I no longer have the two AK 47s I kept and shot over ten years....My grand kids didn't like the loud noise and recoil plus the rising cost of the ammo......I bought the ATI GSG AK 47 22 cal look a like, but totally dedicated 22 cal.....This rifle looks like the real thing and shoots great.....One could also nit pick this rifle, but why do so knowing that it is a replica not a duplicate.

Please tell us more about your HK 22....How does it compare with the S&W M&P 15 22 and the Ruger SR 22 function and quality wise.

It's all made outta of metal and has actual HK parts (the buttstock and pistol grip are the same as they are on the MR556.) It's a nice metal quad rail with no burrs anywhere. The receiver is all metal and the pins are HK in style so they are easy to get out and break the gun down. Its an accurate gun and the barrel is cold hammer forged and manufactured by Walther. It has the ability to have large capacity mags (comes standard w/ a 20 round mag, but you can get 30 round mags). The sights are the same as the MR556 and they are solid and shoot well. It truly is a great gun, and while it's pricy it most definitely is worth it of you want a versatile 22. The M&P 22 is mostly plastic and doesn't really feel like a quality gun. The 10/22 is a fantastic gun with lots of aftermarket parts, but it doesn't really have the versatility of the AR platform.
