Smith & Wesson M&P15-22

In response to my recent post about .22 conversion kits and upper, someone mentioned this carbine. It’s a dedicated .22 that cannot accept centerfire upper, but that also means it’s optimized for the rimfire cartridge. I don’t own one yet but have shot 15-22s owned by friends and was very impressed with balance, reliability and accuracy.

Late this week, I will post about various magazines and accessories for it. In the meantime, just a picture for eye candy.

I'll speak for the one I own....

It's very, very accurate (I shot rifleman at Appleseed with it), and very, very reliable.
Even horribly fouled with rimfire crud, it functions perfectly with just about every
ammo I have tried, including subsonics.

No, I don't consider it a PDW, but honestly... loaded with decent ammo, it can
put 25 rounds of accurate fire anyplace you want within 100 yards, as fast as you
can aim and squeeze. No recoil to speak of.... so follow up shots are almost instant.
