m&p 15-22

Hey everyone. I was wondering what you all have heard about the new m&p. I was thinking of picking up one for a squirrel gun/home defense. I live in California and this would be the only opportunity for me to play with the AR platform. Anyway, just wondering what everyone has heard "for instance is the quality actually there." Thanks for looking.

Jerry,

Re: m&p 15-22

Should be a great weapon very high qualty. Lots of guys use them as low cost tranning alternitive to 5.56 same weapon just more reliable than a 22 conversion for your AR.

As far as home defence with a 22lr I would think again. Additional the lowers are not interchangeable with any other ar pattern rifles.

I know what you mean about home defense, but I worry about using anything larger since I have neighbors on the other side of the wall. I figured that it would be a fine weapon. Smith and Wesson seems to do well always. Thanks for the input.

Re: m&p 15-22

Have you read up much on barrier penatration? A fragmenting round from a 223 will pass through less material than a 9mm etc

too be honest, I've been so busy lately that I haven't really looked into it. I just assumed that anything close to a 5.56 "even if a fragmenting round" would have plenty of energy to pass through some thin drywall. Know any good articles that I could read on the matter?

Re: m&p 15-22

I know most of the goverment tests have been conducted by the FBI. Im sure its something you could google. If you look next time you watch the news or read a gun magizine you will notice a fundimental shift in the way a departments SWAT,HRT etc teams are armed. It used to be you would see alot ok MP5 SMG in 9mm but do to over penatration most teams have switched to AR pattern rifles.
