    I am thinking about buying a S&W 15-22. All the reviews I have read have been good. Anyone have any comments on this gun. Good, bad, any advice would b appreciated. Thx.

    I liked my first one enough to buy a second two months later.

    They are great trainers for the AR type rifles. Everything is pretty much the same layout.

    A lot of fun to shoot. Maybe not quite as accurate as my tricked out 10/22 heavy bbls, but darn close & mine run 100%. Whats not to like?

    I recommend them to anyone who asks. I also recommend a quick release scope mt for switching between irons & scope. Try one, bet you'll like it! :)

    I have one and the only bad thing that I have to say about it is that it costs me a fortune in ammo to keep it fed. Thank god it eats all kinds of bulk ammo that I have thrown at it. If I had to go CCI or better just to get it to run, it would be real expensive.

    Very true. One of the reasons that I have yet to make the move to a full-size AR.

    My wife likes hers. The only jam we had was with Velocitor which is a very hot load. I think it would need a stronger spring for that round. You could feel the difference in recoil.

    It's fantastic. More fun than a barrel of monkeys.

    Well I just picked up my 15-22. It looks great. The only bad thing is it's a Christmas present from my wife, and she won't let me shoot it till Christmas. Oh well, I guess I can wait that long.

    No I didn't get the magpul edition. It was not available at my gun shop. I
    got the standard rifle.

    Well I finally got to shoot my 15-22 and I absolutely love it. I have a BSA red dot optic on it and I love it. I shot 100 rounds and I can't wait to shoot it again.
    The attached pic is from about 15 yrds. After I set the red dot in, that's how it shot. It's a good shooter, but mire importantly, it's awesome to shoot.

    The one in the pic is my son's. I liked his so much that I bought one for myself. My two boys love to shoot and try to compete by seeing how many times they can hit a milk jug at 100 yards and keep it moving between them.

    Nice collection! I want a bigger caliber one day. I figures I would get used to the AR format on a .22 then move up.

    The 15-22 in the most fun I've ever had with a .22 rifle. Gave my first one to my son & his family and bought another.

    The next time to the range, my MP 15-22 is a coming, this last time the Ruger SR-22 came to the range. Shooting both at 50, 100 of even 200 yards is fun.
