Default S&W MP 15-22 w/flash hider, what sights??

I hate to not contribute a lot of knowledge to your posts but I don't have a lot, 2 years into buying guns and ammo and so much to learn. You've helped me on my questions a lot, especially talking me out of buying the "pretty" new-built Garand and ordering a Correct Grade-CMP.

I'm interested in the newest S&W 22 with the flash hider (silly but looks better than the other one) but I can't tell by the picture if those are iron sights or something else. S&W article says w/flash hider and FLDING SGT. FLDING SGT?? Picture at R&R arms and also S&W but takes a while to get to it at S&W picture. Thanks in advance.

So far mine has been a reliable producer of once-used brass. More than 1000 rounds of cci with only 2 FSFs.

That said, this is my first rifle. I'm at a loss when it comes to selecting a sling, a scope and/or front grip. Any advice would be welcome.

S&W has an MOE (Magpul Original Equipment) version that will be out any day now.

yes i have had an out of battery condition and it took out my extractor. i called S&W sent the gun back they replaced the springs and extractor and not a problem since. not everyone is having this problem. you have to consider how many of these guns are sold and just the incidents you hear about. most people dont go out of their way to say hey i have a perfectly working firearm, just when something happens do you hear the negative. other than that my M&P 15/22 has become my favorite gun.
