I have had my 15-22 for a bit over a year and yes, it really is a very slick rifle! It's big advantage over some of the other .22 Caliber AR-style guns is that it's operation and controls are almost identical with a "full-sized" (.223/5.56) AR so it can serve as a trainer for persons who also own one of the big'uns. It's rails also accept all the lights, grips, lasers, bipods, sights, scopes, slings and other paraphernalia that can be hung off the AR-platform. Now it can be somewhat picky about ammo but on mine there were warnings in the owner's manual about what S&W recommend, follow that and you should have no problems. I've even shot tracers with it and they work, just not cycle very well being lower-velocity ammo. As a contrast I also have a Henry Golden Boy in .22LR that is the slickest levergun I've ever used and utterly beautiful to boot! The Ruger 10-22 is a good gun and they've sold a jillion of the things but I tend not to go along with the crowd (no Hondas or Apple products for me!) and wanted a rifle that would replicate what I carried in Vietnam without costing a bundle to buy or shoot and the 15-22 fills that bill perfectly. It is not a "traditional" .22 rifle like the Ruger, but is reliable, flexible, rugged and great fun to shoot. I can't think of a better recommendation than that.

And I have the m&p 9mm and the .22. So I was like well hell make it a set and get 3 S&W. and then I seen the Ruger sr.22. I like the weight and the look.
The m&p is kinda light. Is there other .22 that look that good I don't know about?

Things I would want in a .22

1) Eat any ammo I feed it.

2)Have Rails so I can add a lot of Add-ons

3)Looks. Has to look badass

4)Easy to clean and Maintain

5) price. $500 - $550ish

What do you think the best gun is out of these 5 wants in a gun ?

Can my m&p .22 handgun use the same clip than the 15-22 m&p ???

I bought the Mossberg 715T (far right in the pic) at a gun show in Austin for $229 with the bipod and 25rd magazine. Some folks complain about the shell but unless you are taking this into war.... It is light, economical to shoot, easy to maintain, and deadly if need be. I run Federal bulk ammo through and have not had any problems.

Ruger Mark III 22/45 Target model. It's got a 5.5" bull barrel and comes with a rail for optics. Very reliable and is very similar to a 1911 in terms of feel.

I have the 6" barrel version. Very accurate, eats anything.

Good choice! Get it you won't regret it.
Here is mine, one of best purchase. Shot thousands through it and no problems so far. Easy to clean and accurate. I'm thinking to SBR it.

I highly recommend a ruger 10/22 very accurate reliable and has a reliable track record since like the 1970s or somthing, and its still the most popular 22 today. it chews through ammo its well built and can be passed down to your kids. Non of that plastic receiver mossberg crap you can get a ruger 10/22 for around 250$ if your budget is 500$ you can spend that extra money and install and upgrade it to your hearts desire you get a better gun if you fine tune it yourself then you would buying a 500$ 22lr anyways heres some ideas on what you can do with a 10/22 for that price range.
