The Smith & Wesson M&P15-22 is a .22 LR variant of the Smith & Wesson M&P15. In contrast to the original AR-15, it is blowback-operated, rather than direct impingement-operated. It is intended for recreational shooting ("plinking") and hunting. It is made with a polymer upper and lower receiver, rather than the aluminum that is normally used in AR-15s. Its proprietary magazines are also polymer. The handguards are also polymer, and feature quadruple Picatinny rails.
The M&P15-22 can be used as a less expensive alternative for training with an AR-15 style rifle, as the rifle itself is much less expensive than most AR-15s, and the ammunition is often much less expensive than the .223 Remington/5.56×45mm NATO. The rifle features a safety and bolt lock that operate just like an AR-15's. The M&P15-22 can also be an alternative in jurisdictions that restrict magazine capacity for centerfire cartridges.
The M&P15-22 is also offered in a MOE (Magpul Original Equipment) version complete with an MOE pistol grip, MOE stock, MBUS sights, and a threaded barrel. This is available in Magpul FDE (Field Dark Earth), and standard black. The M&P15-22's lower recoil may also be used as a way to ease new shooters into the sport, allowing them to familiarize themselves with AR-15 controls without the fear of excessive recoil or noise. The 15-22 disassembly process is very similar to the AR-15 and S&W M&P 15. The lower receiver detaches from the upper with two captured pins. The lower receiver contains a standard M&P15 trigger assembly that is compatible with most AR-15 trigger groups. The upper receiver contains the bolt, barrel, and charging handle.
In 2016, Project Appleseed temporarily banned use of S&W MP15-22 rifles at their shooting clinics following a series of out-of-battery discharges, pending a full investigation and correction from Smith & Wesson. This was based on several incidents that occurred in multiple states, including one that injured a shooter on the line and another where multiple cartridges fired with but one trigger pull.

Rifle has all original parts and accessories. Extra 10 round short magazine included. I'm just not into this rifle. I would like to sell both rifle and scope as a package, but am willing to part with them separately. I would consider the scope to be brand new with <100 rounds on it, picatinny...
