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.

These are som kick ass 22s if i had 500$ to spend on a 22 id go with a ruger and instal custom triggers sights ect you can make a frakin thommy gun if you wanted! Cant do that with a s&w 1522
To the you tube videos I Seen. Do you have to deal with more things with the Ruger 10 22 screws,punches than the S&W 15 22 ?

Not really its pretty easy you unscrew the barrel band an tou out the reciever then theres a couple of punches to get to the bolt clean it up and reapeat the procces backwards its pretty easy takes me about 20 minutes!

If you can manage the stock swap you have the skills to rail it yourself. Mine is almost identical except I added a 2" magpul rail on the bottom of the forearm and the John Mason black plastic handguard. Rail makes a nice place to mount bipod to when i want to shoot off the bench. Nice place for a lasersight too. Handguard is for when I get a little triggerhappy with the bx25 twin mags.

Originally did mine so I could fit the scope I wanted into the bag without dismounting every time. Found that the mod makes a good rifle into a great one. Just wish ruger would release seperate barrels and forearms for this gun
.

You could always just retrofit one of those railed barrel bands to fit. Saw that on utube somewhere. Or go a little crazy and put a couple 6" pieces down the sides of the forearm. Beautiful gun by the way.

I've never had a single problem with my 15-22 except for it being too much fun and I end up burning more rounds than I intended.

Buy a 22? Man have you looked at the cost and availability of 22 ammo today? You are just about as well off shooting bigbore. If you just have to have a 22 then any of the Ruger 10/22s is the way to go.

I'm eyeing an M&P 15-22 as well. I was originally considering the 10/22 and still am, but I think for training purposes the M&P makes the most sense. Better IMO than buying a .22 LR upper for my AR lower. The 10/22 will come sooner or later.
