Thanks for the information, need to pick up Smith & Wesson M&P15-22 Threaded Barrel End for Non-Threaded Muzzles, Crush Washer and finally the shroud.

Just have to think about, might save and pickup M&P 15-22 with threaded barrel.

You won't break that...
I will check it out, currently found an adapter and Harris bipod has been re-installed. I was going to the range; but, home duties called for winterization, i.e. Swamp Cooler is buttoned up.

OldEagleEars.."I like to load tracer up every 5th round like we did back in '69 and then watch the pretty lights."

That's funny........What did you do in "69".....................We didn't have green tracers in 64 and 65, the green ones were incoming.

dan01 - I didn't say "green tracers" in my loads, I said "tracers" and the incomings were green in '69 in I-Corps also. The reds are what I use for that reason alone. I know there were times when both us and them used the other sides tracer colors for distraction value (LRRP"s were good about having an AK or SKS on hand for that reason alone: Charlie would light 'em up in ambush and the Lurp would shoot green back just to make them pause and think while our guys di-di'd!). Were you a "trainer" with the ARVN? If so, you had a hell of a hard job; thanks for all you did!

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.
Nutnfancy also stated that he was really putting his weight into the gun. "Frame flex" is what he dubbed it. Given, it's a flaw, but something to be battled with when dealing with polymers. I haven't experienced anything like that with mine, but that's not to say it'll never happen.

Wouldn't give mine up for the world. Used it to train my future wife and my kids when they are alittle older.

I have two M&P 15-22 .22 cal one for me and one for my girlfriend, I got mine first, the first time shooting it and sighting it in I only had to adjust the windage by 2 clicks and it is right on. How ever my girlfriends I have the rear sight adjustment up as high as it will go and the gun is still shooting low. Both guns are being test fired at 30 yards using Winchester super x plated hollow points 37 grains. Has anyone else had this problem?

I have the MOE edition so my sights aren't the bulky stock ones. I would suggest that you just get new sights but the factory ones should work so I would contact S&W. Their customer service is very good so everything should run smoothly. Good luck!
