  • Colt .22 Tactical Rimfire vs. M&P 15-22

    I think one of these two will be the next addition to my personal collection. Does anyone have any experience with either one of these two .22s? If not are there any prevailing opinions being developed on which is the preferred model to purchase?

      Also there is a M4 Carbine .22 that would more closely mimic the LE6920.

        I haven't played with the M&P.

        One thing I didn't like about the Colt, was that there is no bolt hold open. This is true with the Ciener kit in a standard AR as well. I was really hoping that a dedicated .22lr rifle (not just a kit, and not just an upper) would have fixed this issue, so that training would be more realistic.

        If the M&P has fixed this, and the BHO works properly, then I would choose it.

        The "Colt" isn't really a Colt, so don't pick based on brand perception.

          Both are what I'd describe as "pot metal guns", you'd be better off getting a dedicated spikes .22 upper for an AR-15.

            Interesting vid comparing the both that I saw the other day.

              Really? It's my understanding that the S&W is a polymer gun.

                I haven't handle either of them so far. I thought I'd like the Colt due to it alloy construction, however I find the fact that the beaver-tail is only for looks to be a major negative. Without it you miss out doing AR style reloading. From what I've read over the last 24 hours I'm leaning heavily towards the M&P. Besides since last November I've given Colt more then my fair share of business. I guess if I want to spread the wealth I should throw some business Smith & Wesson's way.

                  Get whichever is cheapest. They are plinkers. I hear folks talk poop about my cruddy Marlin 60 but it still drops squirrels like a champ.

                  The M&P flips my skirt. I am hunting for one locally.

                    I looked at both and ended up with a CMMG dedicated .22 AR. I liked it best as it was built on a standard AR lower and upper with a dedicated bolt and barrel. According to CMMG, I could switch the barrel for a .223, add the correct BCG, and have a functioning rifle.

                    It has a bolt hold open to alert you that you are empty, but the bolt closes as a soon as the mag is released. So far it has proven to be an effective trainer.

                    Price wise, it was between a S&W and a Colt.

                      how much is the colt going for?? or the M&P for that matter, seen it up here for around 550 CAN... so i assume they are a lot cheaper in the US
