Hi all. I’m a pretty new 15-22 owner, with about 500 rounds so far. I’m hopeful to hear from some long term owners on the reliability and durability of the gun. I’ve seen various forums in which ppl discounted the 15-22 for the polymer. But if the polymer is durable, then I’d consider the light weight and resistance to conduct heat/cold as benefits.

The gun has been out for quite a few years. Not sure exactly how many but since 2010 or so. If they had a problem with the polymer not holding up I am sure the internet would be loaded with pictures and stories of the gun that cracked or blew up. There are not tons of pictures and stories of failed polymer in the 15-22, so I would say it is a non issue. Mine was purchased in 2012 and has seen probably 4000-5000 rounds and still looks like new

I purchased mine when they first came out on 2009. Over 40,000 rounds later... operates and looks fine. No worries about durability.
