Main reason I wanted this barrel was for the ejector to remedy misfires. Was a pretty easy transplant:
The M&P 15-22 had a nasty habit of misfiring a few times every 25 round magazine. Sent the gun back for warranty repair after tweaking the ejector myself, but dang it anytime there was a misfire the stock ejector would become tweaked resulting in constant misfires thereafter. Just seemed to me that if I stared at the stock ejector the wrong way it would bend 😁The main reason?? I would think it was for the lighter weight.?
The ejector is an easy fix and the extractor any easy change for far less than $300 something?
More the rifle.
None the less nice looking setup!
That is a Swell looking piece of hardware!
Were there any ammo recommendations?
G'morning msharley,Hey B,
Case of ammo........sure don't last long!
That sure is one FUN looking "launch platform"!
Bolt "snicking" back & forth...like a sewin' machine!
Do they make magazine loaders for those, yet?
I have them for the Mk II and 10/22......need to take a big can of ammo when grandkids want to play with those! LOL
I have had mixed results with Aguila....one batch excellent, next batch not so much? (do you recall when the T 22 went "South"?)
I consider the M&P 15-22 a multi solution platform for small and silent problems 😁
Indeed, the rifle sounds like a sewing machine running a seam around a bullseye as well as making me feel like a chicken pecking apart a red dot at distance.
The M&P 15-22 stock and factory replacement 25 round magazines have built in loaders.
Since day one w/ the M&P 15-22 I've only fired Aguila ammo, both 5000 rounds of Super Extra and 500 rounds of Aguila subsonic ammo.
The ejector problem reared its head around 2000 rounds. 1 jam resulted in a spent casing jammed in between the ejector and receiver. That was obviously enough to bend it. Afterwards the blasted gun jammed 2-3 times every 25 rounds.
