I believe you would be very happy with one also.
Cant agree with your choices more. I have a Henry Golden Boy .22 and a Henry .17, both are fun to shoot.
I just picked up a S&W M&P 15-22 and it is such fun to shoot. Right out of the box with very minor sight adjustments I was driving tacks at 50 yards with just the metal sights. It also has been eating any brand of .22 ammo I put in it. I do need to get the quick loader tool. Only complaint I have is that my fingers get so sore from all the reloading.

I also agree. My two favorite .22's (and I've owned many rim fires since my first one back in the 1960's) are a Golden Boy and a M&P 15-22. Smooth actions, easy shooting, accurate and fire pretty much anything that's designed to fit in them. Who could ask for more. I do like the Ruger and had a 10-22 for many years but it was taken during a burglary in the 90's. I almost got another Ruger but held off for a few years and I'm glad I waited since the M&P and Henry filled the empty spot perfectly along with giving me a broader range of options.

Glad this thread got revived, there are some real nice .22s here!

I'm a fan of the Colt/Walther M4 .22lr and got one a couple years ago. It still shoots great after thousands rounds and is reliable using Federal value pack (glad I stocked up over the last two years!) Accuracy is good, about 1.5" at 50 yards. I looked at the S&W M&P15-22 and liked it but the Colt felt better in my hands, the metal receivers bring the weight up to about the same as the M4/Colt LE6920.

Mine is the first generation with the dumb 180 degree selector and dust cover that flops open. The new ones have the standard 90 degree selector and I'm thinking of adding the new part. Anyway, the S&W is a great choice but pick up the Colt and compare, you may like it better. BTW, there's a lot of negatives out there on the net but take it with a grain of salt. People who actually shoot them tend to like them.

Default Tactical mods to a Mossberg 702

Got one for $107 plus a $50 walmart gift card, then found out there is barely any add ons for it like the 10/22...am able to add sights/optics,...but so far that's about it. Hoping someone on these great Forums/Site can help out with some "realistic" suggestions. Thanks In advance....

Ran into the same problem when trying to modify, and tac my budget Remington 597. Just not a lot of stuff out there for anything other than the Ruger 10/22. I did see some YouTube vids about using an Airsoft stock and synthetic pieces on a Mossberg 720. Not sure what would be involved in such mods.
