    until today ive never owned a smith and wesson product. i havent cared much for any of the handguns they have ever produced. but when i came across the pink tiger striped M&P 15-22 had to get one.

    its basicly the standard model M&P 15-22 just painted with a pink tiger stripe.

    cost was 499$ i had 155$ in store credit from previous purchases on their frequent buyer rewards program bringing the total price to 344$ before tax.

    ordered it last week and it showed up today so i went down and picked it up grabbed dinner and came home to give it a good going over.

    as you can see i changed a few things right off the bat. i added magpul moe grip and mbuis flip up sights replacing the stock ones from SW. i also removed the flash suppressor and added on my silencerco suppressor. the rails have blackhawk ultra light weight rail covers. these are very very very comfy.

    sitting on top is currently my wife's leupold mk4 cqb scope off her M4 carbine. im possibly going to put a optic on it but im undecided as of yet.

    its a very light fast rifle but then its a 22LR. i really like this little beastie. cant wait to take it out and run a few thousand rounds through it.

    For some reason I just didn't figure you for a pink gun kind of guy. :)

    lol i guess you missed my postings on my pink ruger 10/22 target rifle. ive also got a pink sig mosquito and my bersa thunder 380 has pink three dot sights and ive got a set of pink wood laminate grips for it.

    ive always liked pink especially on firearms but most pink guns are junk as gun companies market their cheaest products to women paint em pink so they will sell. you seldom come across high quality firearms in pink.

    if my wife hadnt claimed my DE 50AE as her own it woulda ended up with a pink tiger stripe duracoating....

    I may not be a huge fan of pink but I sure like how you have it set up JonM. It's a nice looking rifle.

    thanks :) i had to order a suppressor spacer from silencerco. cant use the sparrow on it until the spacer gets here. im hoping it shows up before saturday. im probably going to put my nikon monarch 1-4x african on it. i dont really like the cqb scope. the nikon was supposed to go on my socom but it wont hold zero on that gun. i dont think it will have any problem with a 22lr.

    Nice looking gun. Before I read that it was your wife's Mark 4, I was gonna comment that I thought it was funny that you had a $500 dollar rifle with a $2500 optic.

    That's crazy that the african won't hold zero. Doesn't it get the african designation because its meant for larger calibers?

    i have a very good relationship with my local gun dealer ;) normally he matches or beats online pricing for me. there is something to be said for being a loyal customer. i always give him first crack at locating new firearms for me. i will go through a different dealer only if there is a odd thing he cant get.

    lol yeah i do have more pink gear than just a few guns :)

    Thats one reason i own so many marlins-im a loyal customer as well as a tester. Which fyi the rumor is that there is supposed to be a tactical 795 in the works. If there is i will let you guys know. If i get one to test you can count on a range report.

    here is the current config on my M&P. the more i shoot this gun the more impressed i get!! i transfered the mbus sights to my 458socom. its got a picatinny promag battery storage compartment for the vortex red/green strikefire. magpul grip, ladder style rail covers.

    put another 250 rounds through it this past weekend and another flawless performance using bulk pack ammo.
