If its anything near the junk their Tactical .22 is I would stay VERY far away from this thing.

Can't be a Mossberg; doesn't have weed-whacker handle and a truly ridiculous muzzlebreak on it.

I'll sit on the sidelines and watch this unfold. Mossberg doesn't have the best rep, IMO.

I own their tactical .22 and its a fun shooter. I also have the maverick 88, and it has been nothing but reliable. I don't know why you have a bad opinion of Mossberg, but I can say I love their firearms and customer service.

I can only say that the Mossberg .22 AR hasn't gotten great reviews. I held one in the store and it felt pretty cheap by comparison to the M&P AR15-22. I think it will be some time before Mossberg is up to par with some of the other manufacturers out building AR's. I think they make a good shotgun. So, only time will tell.

Compared to an M&P you are absolutely right. It is designed to be a budget .22, not an actual .22 AR. For the price I paid I couldn't be happier, but with they money I would have gotten something nicer.

i like mossgerg also, they make quality sutff and dont charge you too much for it. so i expect their AR will be a good commercial level AR.

S&W = $500
Mossberg = $225

"cheap plinker" is exactly what it is supposed to be.

With the ocean of AR's currently on the market...I wouldn't even waste my time looking at the Mossberg offering...

As for .22, I played with many .22 "AR" clones before getting my M&P 15-22...including the Colt, Mossberg and even the HK...

The S&W easily won out.

I didn't look at it as saving $$ with the Mossberg...I looked at it as chucking a couple hundred bucks down the drain. With the lousy fit and finish that thing had, I wouldn't give over $99 for it.

Jeez, they're trying to cash in on everything. When do the pistols come out?
