I am looking to fill the gap of not having a .22 rifle. Basically I started out wanting to modify a 10/22 to look like a more modernized M14 but now after looking into the M&P, I think I might go with it instead. Whichever one I do go with, I think I'll use it as a vehicle gun as well as do pest control. There is a 10/22 in the family that I do occasionally shoot at the range.
Price wise I think it would pretty much equal out. The M&P is just about ready to go, while the 10/22 would require almost everything be changed. Plus whatever I have on my AR now I could switch out if I wanted.
I'm seeing a lot of good reviews on the M&P, but the 10/22 has been around for quite a while. With the M&P I can also train with the same controls as my AR but for cheaper.
Any reason why I shouldn't go with the M&P over the 10/22?
