    Just curious as to how you've modified your M&P15-22 in regards to sights. Scope, laser, new sights. Just looking for suggestions.

    Get hands on before doing any "mods." Chances are you're needs will quickly change as you shoot it and you'll quickly end up w/ a box of useless parts. Less is more.

    I've got an Aimpoint CompM on mine; it's the MOE version, so it came with the Magpul sights.

    I also have a Surefire L72 laser that's quite fun in lower light. It's enjoyable to attach a suppressor and shoot quietly at steel in the dark. :)

    The aperature that Magpul uses seems cheap. That's my only real complaint with their sights.

    Could you start a thread over the positioning of your light?

    It's a back-yard plinker. Not something to clear rooms with on a daily basis.

    That's not a flashlight. It's a Surefire L72.

    It is positioned that way so I can easily press/depress the button on the XM tailcap with my left thumb while holding the magwell.

    It actually works quite well, and is very comfortable.

    Mine came with Magpul BUS and I moved the Eotech 511 I had to it after I bought a Eotech 553 for my primary rifle. My 15-22 has been a pleasure to shoot and has given me no trouble at all.

    Thanks! I recommend picking one up with the MBUS and threaded barrel so you can put a can on it. Just a fair warning, once you get it you will be going through alot of 22LR ammo. Thank God it is cheap!

    The irons that come on the 15-22 work great. I put on a Primary Arms Micro clone that I picked up on the EE for less than 50 bucks. It's accurate enough for .22LR and works great.
