Smith & Wesson 25 + 1 22 LR w/16" Barrel/Collapsible Stock
by Robert K Date Added: Tuesday 16 February, 2010
Ordered the M&P15-22 from Bud's in Mid-January and finally got out to shoot it this last weekend.

I'd read quite a bit on problems reported by owners at the S&W forums (OOB discharges, and detonating extractor/bolt assemblies) requiring folks to send it back to Smith to have it 'updated'. Regardless, I decided to take the chance on this light .22LR AR clone as I was looking for something for my young son that he could shoulder and gain familliarity with the AR layout. Additionally, the M&P 15-22 has a solid barrel, unlike the thin-walled Umarex/Colt M4 replica, and has a functional bolt release.

Ran 350+ rounds of Remington Golden Bullets (aka Golden Bombs) through it with no issues other than the (completely expected) 1 rnd/mag Failure-to-fire (hey, if you shoot golden bullets, you know what I'm talking about). No failures to feed, or failures to eject. Just ran like a top and was quite impressed with my 50 yard, standing unbraced iron sight accuracy. Easily as accurate as I can get with my stock Ruger 10/22.

I'll be heading out again next weekend to run a few hundred more golden bombs through it and will update if any issues are encountered.
