    I'm looking to buy a Smith & Wesson m&p 15-22 rifle but don't have $500 to drop on one. I see mossberg sells a similar rifle, for half the price, and was hoping to get some help deciding which one to get. I really just want it for target shooting and maybe the occasional rodent.

    If you are a hardcore AR 15 devotee, get the S&W.

    I ordered a Mossberg Plinkster Tactical from Palmetto State on a deal of the day sale. I put a $40 Tru Glo red dot on it. Hope to shoot it this weekend.

    Everything I have heard/read says the Mossberg is worth its price. However it is just a 22lr action wrapped in polymer to look like an AR.

    But still should be fun to shoot and put squirrels and such in the gumbo pot.

    Also, welcome to FTF. Stop by the Introduction section and let us know a little about yourself.

    Mossberg-S&W15

    To me they are all .22 wrapped in a AR type stock. They will not shoot any better than a Marlin 60 or Ruger 10-22, they just look different!:) Cliff

    Get the smith. Compatable with all ar accessories and from what I researched. It is the best one of them all.

    Howdy,
    I like the Smith good enough that I now have 2 of them. One is scoped and the other uses the stock sights. Both are accurate and dependable. I have shot every known brand of ammo and they will function with no problems. In fact I have yet to have a malfunction. Great little rifles!!!!! Have a goodun!!!!!!!!
