I’m very impressed with the new M&P15-22 Rifle by Smith & Wesson(S&W). The new rifle has many of the same features that a .223 style AR-15 from S&W. This rifle feels great in your hand and even better when you’re shooting it.
I’ve listed the specifications below and also listed a few pros and cons. There is also a video review of the M&P 15-22 below, I’d love to hear your thoughts and any comments you have about it in the comment area below.
