    I bought one a couple months back. My grandson has a 10/22 with the adjustable stock, and the S&W easily outshoots it. I'm very pleased with it.

    If you want to get into rifles in 22lr, The top 2 choices are Ruger 10/22 and S&W M&P15-22.

    Lots of fun. Every time (so far) I have gone to the range with mine I have shot at least 1000 rounds. I have yet to have a failure to feed and fire.

    Fun, reliable and accurate. What more can I say?

    I have both a 10/22 and a 15-22, and love them both.

    I found one for $425, one mag. Bought brand new and only fired 50 rounds of CCI-Mini mags through it.

    This one has a plain muzzle, not threaded. Is this a good price?

    Can you dry fire these rifles like a 10/22? Did they design it so the firing pin doesn't smack the mouth of the chamber?

    I wouldn't dry fire any rimfire.

    I don't think the 10/22 is special in this regards. The FP or chamber could be damaged.

    As I recall from field stripping the M&P it uses a similar FP.

    one big down side to them right now is i see on the aution sites magazines going for as high as a 175 bucks and cheap ones cant be found anywhere. So what you get with the gun is what you have for the most part. I bought 10 of them a few years ago when i bought my gun. Kind of chuckled because i could go and buy an new gun for under 450 bucks sell the mag for 175 and basicaly get another one for 275 bucks!

    The manual states do not dry fire. I use a dummy round to drop the hammer for storage.
