New Range Toy - S&W M&P15-22 Sport

I recently added this little gem to the stable. It's a S&W M&P 15-22 Sport. It functions just like regular AR for the most part. I added some Magpul furniture and a Bushnell TRS-25 Red Dot on a UTG medium riser, which allows it to co-witness perfectly with the Magpul BUIS sights that came standard on the gun. It came with a 25-round magazine, and I purchased some additional 10-round magazines for it. I had some stovepipe ejection problems at first, but after some research online, discovered this is a common problem, and the fix is a simple adjustment to the ejector, which took all of 5 seconds and was accomplished with a push of my thumb (no tools needed). I had originally contacted S&W regarding the problem, and they sent me a label to send the gun back to have it fixed, but I figured I'd try it myself first, and it has functioned flawlessly since, so I didn't bother to send it back. Since I adjusted the ejector I have put about 300 rounds through the gun ( which is not hard to do in a very short time!) without a single malfunction.

With the Red-Dot, I can rapid-fire a 4-5" group at 30 yds. offhand. Even with the BUIS, I can get very small groups off a rest at 50+ yards.

This is a fun little gun to shoot, almost boringly accurate and reliable. It is not picky about the ammo I feed it, although I prefer to stick to CCI Mini-Mags (1235 fps) just because they seem to burn much cleaner than some other brands. Winchester Super-X works well too.

Congrats...Thats a mean looking .22 :smile: I almost bought the M&P 15-22 but I decided on a Ruger American bolt action. The bolt action keeps me from burning thru alot of ammo :smile: Have to say the Ruger American is no even close to being as bad azz as yours :smile:
I have had my M&P 15-22 about 5 years now and it has been through 3-4 thousand of rounds of mostly bulk (cheap) ammo. I love it and it actually replaced my 10-22 due to it being very finicky with various bulk ammo brands. Everybody who shoots it loves it and I'm sure you will too!
I bought my M&P 15 .22 about 6 months ago, and I love it! It takes most high velocity ammo well, and I can shoot incredibly with it. It's very easy and natural. I bought a mandolin case to carry it in. It's also quiet and would be most stealthy with a silencer, if I can afford one, one day. I also use mine to introduce the "timid" to using a "scary black gun". They end up loving it and wanting to do more.

Enjoy it!
I bought one in 2012. I have dressed it up some and installed a Geissele SSA-E trigger assembly in it. Fine little .22LR rifle.
