    Been looking this gun over but I was wondering if there are any other brands that are cheaper. Basically I want to get one for my sons 8th birthday to get him started. He loves AR's so getting a 22 like an AR, well he'd be in heaven. Not much for around my neck of the woods to look at to compare price. Thanks Guys

    I highly recommend the S&W M&P 15-22. After checking out the competition that's what I bought. It is a very well built rifle.

    im considering getting one for myself and im 23! haha. it looks like a great rifle, seen a few video reviews on youtube and it looks like one of the top in its class. the only one i have seen rated higher is the sig tactical 22, but honestly it isn't worth the price difference.


    i'm saving for the m&p 22 myself, just seems like the best overall choice for an ar style 22.

    If it's for a 9 year old I'd look at the mossberg one it's about half the price. I've also seen a Remington one that was again about half the price of the 15/22. If it were for you I'd say go for the 15/22 but for your son I'd look at some of the other cheaper ones to get him started on.

    Thats what I am kinda going for, basically just to get him started. I am currently building a Spikes for myself but it will be four or five months before it is done.

    I've had my 15-22p for about 6 months now.
    I LOVE the gun, it's so fun and cheap to shoot.
    I clean it every 500 rounds, and maybe have 1-2 stovetops.
    Im 22 so what?!? Like my .22 just like the next guy.

    While the Mossberg is cheaper...I would just pony up the extra cash and get the 15-22. Why skimp on your son?

    Love mine. The Colt is made by Umarex and is IMHO a pain in the butt to take down and clean. The Sig is nice but I just don't like how it "feels".

    If you want your son to become familiar with the AR's manual of arms, you won't find a better .22LR platform than the 15-22. The magazine is so close in size that I use my regular AR-15 mag holder for the 15-22. The 15-22 takes an AR trigger, if you want to change it. Mag release, bolt release, safety....all in the same place, all work the same. The adjustable stock is perfect for letting a child grow up with the rifle. It weighs less than the AR-15 since the upper and lower are polymer....but yeah, your son most likely weighs less than you so that evens things out. ;)

    Another in for the M&P 15-22.

    Unlike it's current competitors, it is fully functional (bolt release, etc). It is also extremely easy to tear down...unlike its competitors...it also accepts real AR triggers as well...

    Mine has been flawless...the only issue is bad ammo which is not the gun's fault. I consistently run Blazer bulk ammo though mine and it had performed beautifully. I have zero complaints.

    It is easily one of the most fun rifles I have ever had...seriously. Cheap to shoot and super kid/lady friendly as well.

    I can somewhat understand wanting a black rifle copy .22 if your purpose is specifically cheap black rifle training. Other than that, I don't see why you would pay the extra money for the AR knockoffs. Marlin model 60, Ruger 10/22....these might be boring options, but there is a reason why they are still around. They are both cheap, accurate and well-made in general. Also, from a lot of reviews I have read, many of the AR-22's aren't nearly as accurate as one would hope. Again, that is not from personal experience.

    I played with one at the range the guy next to me had and he had his scope dialed in. It was extremely fun to shoot. I really want to pick one up after shooting it. The cool thing is too you can share attachments with 5.56 rifles. and all the fundamentals you learn on a 15/22 can pass on. It seems like the perfect training aid and it's cheap to purchase and cheap to shoot alot.
