S & W M&P 15-22
This is the ideal firearm to practice shooting an AR-platform style rifle, without the expense of .223/5.56 ammunition. It feels like a true AR, and functions much like an AR15; and of course, with less felt recoil.
This is the only .22cal AR-style rifle whereby upper and lower separates for cleaning. And a huge advantage of the M&P 15-22 over the “other European” AR-platform .22LR, is that the bolt can be removed for cleaning, which is a must (the “other’s” cannot).
The A-1 compensator/flashhider can be removed to add any standard 1/2 x 28 suppressor. Even the charging handle works.
There are many .22LR platform AR’s out there. The M&P 15-22 sets the standard for reliability, accuracy, and genuine “AR feel”.
These two rifles are blow-back semi-auto in operation (just like typical “AR’s”), and each comes with a 25-round magazine.
In addition to the removable A-1 flash hider for suppressors, these two versions of the M&P 15-22 offer a higher quality 6-position CAR stock, two-position selector switch, pistol grip, permanent casted quad-rail upper, and high quality S&W ADJUSTABLE front and rear sights.
The Black version won the “Academy of Excellence” rifle award for 2010, and the Pink Platinum version is an exclusive “TALO” limited edition.
