S&W M&P 15-22

I might pick up the better half a S&W M&P 15-22 tomorrow as a Christmas gift (Hope it goes well), she does go to the range with me in the warmer months. I know its last minute but I was just wondering if anyone on here has one and how do you like it?

Thanks and Merry Christmas to all.

Re: S&W M&P 15-22

I bought one about a year ago. Neat looking gun, and that's where it stopped. Had one jam every clip. I realized that most new .22 semi auto's are going to skip a beat here and there until the feed surfaces smooth out, but this thing was IMO an expensive piece of junk. Paid in the upper 400's, had to sell it for 300, and felt lucky to get that. BTW, I tried several brands of ammo, hoping for a different result, but that didn't seem to help either.

Who knows, maybe you'll get lucky and get a good one.

The day after I sold it, I bought a Henry Golden Boy. Much more fun for me.

Did you take the time to clean it before shooting it out of the box?



I have one, cleaned it nice and good before taking it to the range. ZERO problems. I have used Remington, CCI, Federal, Winchester with no trouble.



Grat gun..but make sure you get a second mag

I have the Colt/Umarex version and it's a fun gun.

Zero problems and a blast to shoot. Early ones had extraction problems.

Re: S&W M&P 15-22

I bought one a little over a year ago and went through probably close to 3000 rounds in it without any real problems. mainly just dud ammo that didnt go off. other than that I think anyone that shoots it has a blast with it.

Re: S&W M&P 15-22

I'll let you know after Christmas.I bought my son one.The instructions do say to clean and lubricate it prior to use.I watched a gun show the other night and the one on there worked perfect as did the you tube videos I watched.I have 3 brands of ammo to try before buying in bulk just to be safe.

Re: S&W M&P 15-22

just a question. did you give s&w a chance to make it right or just sell it and bash the manufacturerer? i was guilty of that with a remington 504. never gave big green a chance. regret it now. NOBODY is perfect.
