its a mossberg 702 plinkster with a cosmetic package. if you want a close to ar15 in a 22lr only the sw ar15-22 works. for a few $$ more than the sw you can get a true ar15 lower then purchase a cmmg dedicated 22lr upper.
then you have an upgrade path for later to centerfire in a few years when your older.
anyway between the two you mentioned the s&w M&P 15-22 is a no brainer
