The Smith& Wesson page I read saidit was because it was too easy to swap out the barrel and make it a rifle. I'm just glad that I own the pistol version. It's very fun to shoot.

I dunno just me , soon as I saw that grouping drop. I knew this wasnt the rifle for me . Although I will say I never experienced it myself. And while I owned it it was a great rifle.
If weather weather affects point of impact, what is going to happen when you run a couple 30 shot clips through it? Barrel temperature should be a problem when shooting fleas at 200 yards. Not not your normal 22 plinking range.

I am in New Mexico and it can get hot and very dry here. Summer time, I run about 1 brick and a half of Blazer CCI 40 gr ammo, she is always on target at 50 and 100 yards. My only issue is the bipod,

I had a perfect one and it broke and since then replacements not up to par. I have tried my Harris, Blackhawk, UTG versions, and sandbags she is not a happy plicker!

Thank you I've been looking for an answer for over a week now. Lucky you have one!

I have the 15 22 MOE with a scope, vertical grip, and bi pod........It shoots fine in hot weather and is as accurate as my other 22s at 0 to 100 yards in the same weather conditions.

Well guys don't shoot the messenger lol . I'm just repeating what I saw in that video. I'm glad yours dont have that problem. Maybe he was just leaning on the rifle a little too hard.

Dan01, how's the accuracy of your MP5 clone compare to the 1522? Which is more reliable? Any info would be great. Thanks.

Isis...The Walther HK MP5 SD is very accurate with the iron sights, red dot, or reflex scope...........I can get good performance out to 100 yards, but it is basically used as a plinker due to the way it is made......With the collapsable stock and large hand guard, this firearm is a copy of a close quarter weapon.......I love shooting it from the hip.

The 15 22 is a reasonably reliable firearm and should be cleaned every 500 to a 1000 rounds....I clean all my 22s frequently and lightly lube the moving parts....22 cal ammo is dirty shooting and will gunk up a gun......Most problems had with the 22s is because of poor cleaning.
