    I was at a gun shop and see one for $457 is it worth the money I have shot one that wasn't a 22 and I liked it but not sure bout the smaller caliber

    We have one and it is a great little shooter. My wife loves it. Very easy to clean as it breaks just like an AR. Any one considering a 10-22 converted to tactical should look at the M&P15-22 instead.

    i like it better than my 10/22. the 25 round mags work very well easy to clean easy to load. mine has never failed to feed or failed to eject. the only issues were directly related to dud remington junk ammo.

    mags arent terribly pricey on par with the extended 10/22 mags.

    may be a bit pricey if you dont care if your 22 is a replica of the ar15 or not or dont shoot enough that ease of loading is an issue.

    I had the chance to shoot one this past summer and it was very nice. Well worth the price.

    You will not be disappointed. It's a great gun and very accurate. Make sure yours has the blue spring in the bolt. I heard the red springs had problems. I ran about 2000 rounds thru mine and had two jams. Here is the first 25 rounds I shot at from 25 yds open sites. Pretty accurate.

    The M&P15-22 is the very best of the tactical rimfires, the controls are just like a centerfire AR and the field stripping for cleaning is easy. I've owned the Colt/Umarex M4 (junk) and the Sig 522 ( a decent rifle) but prefer the M&P hands down. You'll be very happy with yours.
