    The only one that I have personal experience with is the S&W M&P 15-.22. I have one and it is currently the most shot .22 that I own. My 10 year old loves it.

    Get the M&P. It is an outstanding rifle.

    I have the Mossberg Tactical .22 Its a 702 Plinkster in an AR15 shell I shoot this thing almost every day and we just picked one up for my grandson he loves it. It shoots prety much anything I run through it heres a couple of pics of mine I got a little carried away with the bolt ons but they add weight to the gun Its only around 5 lbs out of the box you cant go wrong with this gun for the money about $275 door to door.

    I have the Smith & Wesson M&P AR15-22. I love it. It's more fun than a barrel of monkeys.

    Colt .22 I got an M4, shoots great when you run good ammo through it. It takes some adjusting but it's the same size and weight as a real M4 and feels just like. The clips are extremely easy to load, adjustable stock. Me personally I really didn't like the M&P 15-22 felt almost like a toy.

    My most popular rifle with the kids

    I've had the Colt/Umarex M4 for 2 years, my grandson and nephews LOVE it. Thousands of rounds thru it, very reliable.:D

    i have the M&P15-22 and the GSG-5 both are fun to shoot. the GSG-5 is alot heaver than the M&P15-22 and the M&P can be a little picky on ammo but both shoot very well.

    Personally I'd stay away from the Mossberg and go with s S&W 15-22 that has a lifetime warranty. I handled a Mossberg at my local GS and was not impressed at all. Everything about it seemed cheap. Even though the S&W will cost more it will be worth it all day longgggggggggggggggggg!!!

    I have the S&W M&P 15-22 and Ruger SR-22R love both of them. I recommend both!

    ra5451 the add on are 3-9x40 Bushnell scope a 1x30 Red Dot a bolt handle extention a Bipod a flash light a fake silencer a three point sling and since the pics I added a ATI Cheek Rest.
    Yeah this gun feels cheap because it is cheap half the price of a S&W but once it was broken in it has worked trouble free I have run at least 2ooo rounds (many different brands) through it. I have killed more small game than I can count with this gun and by the way I bought it from Davidsons Gallery of Guns they give a lifetime replacment warrenty above and beyond the manufacturers warranty

    another vote for the S&W 15-22. My son's has 1000s of rounds through it. Never a problem with it.

    Remington 597 quad rail .22

    We found the Remington for $299. So far I'm happy with it. Waiting until payday to buy a bipod for it. I mounted a new Weaver Steel-lite II 4 X 12 on it just to see how it shoots.
