    I want to buy for my kid a collapsing stock 22. He is all about the AR-style rifles. He thinks they look cool and I am sure it will be fun to shot too. I am considering either the Remington Model 597 VTR 22LR with Collapsible Stock or the Smith & Wesson’s M&P 15-22 Rifle with Collapsible Stock. They are very comparable in price. Is any one familiar with both of these two riffles and have a preference? Thanks.

    go with either a ruger 10/22 and a blackhawk axiom stock/ tapco stock then add in "tech sights" peep sights (ar15/m1a sight picture, theyre sweet)

    you can get a used 10/22 for like 150 bucks or less and a new stock for around 100


    the ruger sr22

    both use easy to find/ super reliable rotary mags or the plethora of after market mags for the 10/22 (butler creek steel lips)

    i went with the first option and it is awesome

    I have the Remmington VTR with heavy Barrel. And I have the Colt M4 .22LR. I love both of them I paid 499 for the Colt (made by a German company for colt) and 399 for the Remmington. They are both metal, not plastic. I think the M&P model has a composit lower (not sure). Just make sure you always use H V ammo. They don't like the cheaper rounds. I love both guns. Teaching my wife to shoot with the Colt, so she can later shoot my Colt AR. They are so close it's hard to tell them apart except for the weight. If I had to choose one, I suppose I'd go with tht Colt. The Mag is fantastic, so easy to load. And what a blast to shoot. Sorry, no experience with the M&P.

    I would also suggest the 10/22. They are a great firearm and very reliable for a decent price. If you're looking for an AR type 10/22, I know Ruger offers one called an AR-22 or AR-10/22? Something like that, straight from the factory, and they look very cool. They do run a bit more pricey than the stock 10/22, though. My local Scheel's has standard 10/22's for about $260-270 and the AR-10/22 they have is $450.

    go the 10/22 with a tapco or ati or any of the after market stocks if you find a decently priced used rifle you can put one together fo under $250....just watch out for the mall ninja haters, your son will love the ar feel and you will love the 22lr ammo price. Tacticle Innovation makes the best high capacity mags IMHO
