    Pics of my new AR

    I had to take the Colt back today that I bought yesterday, i popped a pin out and I could not get it back in and neither could the shop so they offered me to either exchange it or have their smith work on it next week, i opted for the exchange and got an M&P 15 and with the credit left over I got an inexpensive Red-Dot. Here are pics.

    The issue was my making, I accidently pushed it out and could not get it back in which is why I took it back, the guy said that should never have came out to begin with, so who knows. I hope i enjoy this, it is my first AR and mainly just for plinking.

    Should be a great plinker that won't break the ammo bank! You should let us know how it runs for you.

    I just got one of those 15-22's myself about a week ago. I haven't had the chance to take it out and shoot it yet. Should be fun and inexpensive. Enjoy yours.

    I hope it is fun to play with. I am on a limited income and really it was streching to even buy anything, had to sell a gun to help cover the cost.

    You traded a Colt for an M&P?

    Why didn't you come here for your pin problem? I'm sure we could've helped you get it back in.

    I'm curious too? I'll occasionally strip mine down to different levels depending on time available and my own curiosity. I didn't know there was a point of no return?

    The Colt was a 22 as well, I assume? What likely happened is the detent pin got hung up once it was pushed out past that point. A simple fix, but not something you'd know how to do unless someone explains it to you.

    The M&P 22 is a great rifle for a 22. In this case, and this case only, I don't think there will be much difference between a Colt and an M&P. If we were talking about their 5.56 rifles, then that's another story. Still, I'd probably choose the Colt myself.

    I hope you enjoy the rifle and I hope it leads you to a 5.56 model.

    The pin on the Colt that had the issue was the safety switch, it came out and when I was able to get it back in, it would not move or nor would it aligh correctly.

    Did you remove the grip to loosen the detent?
