It's not actually touching. The lens cover is on there in the pic and that doesn't even touch. Point of view in the pic makes it look deceiving.

Nevermind. I get what you're saying now. Unfortunately the eye relief doesn't allow it to move back any further and get a proper hold.

I bought the scope because of the extra long eye relief but had no idea about what you mentioned. Good tip.
I shoot freehand almost exclusively though so I guess it won't hurt for now.

That is what the adjustable stock is for. The AR is not made to use a standard angle grip when the stock is fully collapsed or it will develop a crik in your wrist. My own 15-22 used a fully collapsed Magpul Fixed Carbine stock because I have the red dot out as far as it will go on the end of the receiver for steel competition. But even that required a different grip so I replaced my usual Ergo grip with a more vertical one from Umbrella Corp. (don't you just love a company that named itself after the bad guys in Resident Evil). Anyway normally you set the scope up on an AR so the rear bell is about even with the charging handle (does not apply to red dot scopes). That puts the stock about position 3 or 4. then there is plenty of room to pull the charging handle without hitting your head with that hand and you can keep your head looking thru the scope, with or without glasses. But hey do whatever you feel like. That is the way of the AR and its clones.

Performance Center model, few after market do dads, even found a flash hider that's fluted to match the barrel. Optics are a Nikon Prostaff Target EFR w/Nikon mount.

How did you get the green lettering on the finish? I've never seen a 15-22 like that.

Thanks ! Being different yet some-what subtle was my goal.
I watched on couple of videos on YouTube on "letter filling" and used some flat lacquer based model paint and wiped excess off with Hopps Bore Cleaner and patches. Super easy.

This should get you started

I had been wanting to get an M&P 15-22 for some time now, and I finally did. My plans for this rifle hit a bump in the road when I saw the video review by Nutnfancy posted earlier in this thread - the accuracy performance of the rifles he reviewed was terrible! Fortunately, several of you RFC'ers posted back to reassure me that his results were not typical. Thanks for that.

I've had my rifle now for a couple of weeks. The first several times to the range were really just goofing off, runnin' & gunnin', shooting steel plates, that kind of thing. Just trying to get comfy with the new rifle. No serious accuracy work. Not even semi-serious. Because...

...I was having horrible reliability issues: FTE's, cases getting stuck back in the action, one case even fell into the trigger group and I had to break the rifle apart to get it out. This past Saturday was the worst - even with mini-mags, I was getting a jam of some kind every 2-3 shots. No bueno.

So Sunday afternoon, I hunted around on the interweb for "what to do" and came up with a few ideas. I disassembled the bolt, removed/cleaned/reinstalled the extractor, polished the bolt rails with Flitz, filed off the little burrs on the tips of the bolt rails, and re-aligned the ejector (which I think was the real culprit, as it seemed to be too low relative to the bore). Back out to the range and SHAZAM! She's running 100%!!

Now to really zero it in. This was a quick process. First five-shot group at 50 yards was an even 2.0" c-to-c and not too far from point of aim. Quick adjustment, and the second five-shot group was centered and measured 1.2". Then I fired a 10-shot group for confirmation, which was centered and measured 2.1". Ammo used was Norma Tac-22. I am well-pleased with that level of accuracy for this rifle and its purpose. If I need greater precision, I have plenty of other choices in the safe.

Oh, I should mention, the above accuracy was using a Primary Arms red dot. No magnification.

Here is a snapshot of my new M&P 15-22 with its bigger brother:

Took barrel shroud off and put my Coastal Hornet on. Ran flawless with subsonic ammo.

New here glad to be here had my M&P15-22 for about 3 weeks now. Bought her used an good condition for $325 out the door. She has the threaded barrel, had no sights on her when bought her. She was just plan. I brought her home broke her down and gave her the cleaning of her life as she did need it.

Next I knew what I want her to ware to the prom so I started to dress her up. Now.that she is.all dressed up I will do.some small mods to her, trigger springs or a new trigger and small amount of polish. Those are the most common things I have read that is done to improve the M&P15-22 performance. Any input on this would be great. But not going to spending $600 on triggers and parts.

Below are some photo of her and her family. Also some photos of 22LR pile ammo love!! Ammo that is missing, but is in route is 300 rounds of Winchester Power Point 42 max and 2 300 rounds packs of Xmas special edition standard velocity.

Matching her to the rest of the family in stainless and black.

M&P15-22 and Ruger 22/45 Lite. Not pictured is my CZ 455 Varmint Evolution that is on its way to complete the 22LR gang.

Nice looking hand guard, it has a much more finished look than my Taccom hand guard. Who made it and what muzzle brake and barrel nut?
