Forgot just how fun 22LR's are to shoot. Sighted in my 15-22 today and even with a cheap-o Tasco dot sight, it was killing some targets. Best part, loaded 3 mags of 25 after I scoped it in. Went as fast as I could through the 75 rounds and after all of it, I'm out, what $3.00? Can't say that with my AR.
I am thoroughly impressed with this AR platform 22. Not a single FTF/FTE, although the mags leave a bit to be desired.
Anyone know of a good aftermarket mag for the 15-22?
The 15-22 is a wonderful plinker, small game hunter, AR platform trainer, etc.
I stopped counting at around 30K rounds through mine and it still runs perfectly. A buddy of mine bought a couple of the hi-cap drum magazines for his and he had nothing but trouble with them. They were a PITA to load and I don't think he ever got through an entire mag without a malfunction. The stock mags are not as durable as PMags, but if you load them so the rounds are properly staggered (and don't shoot crap *cough* Remington *cough* ammo), they function quite well. On our last range trip I preloaded 20 mags (500 rds of CCI MiniMags) and dumped them all with zero failures.
