    Good evening guys(gals),

    Now that you've helped me narrow down my next purchase. I am currently looking at which attachments I am going to need. I've been doing some research and UTG seems to have everything I desire.

    The attachments I am looking for include:
    -Scope(not sure if RDS or not)
    -Rail guards

    I am looking for something reliable, but I also something that won't punish my wallet. Thanks guys, you always help out. I really appreciate it. :wavey:

    UTG is generally junk IMO, but it would probably do just fine on a .22. For a nice budget red dot look into Primary Arms. They are very good for what they are and the owner is a good guy.

    I love the basic UTG rail covers. Accessorize your 15-22 any way you want. Since it's a .22lr, the accessories you put on it do not have to deal with punishing recoil. Just don't go too cheap.

    Congratulations on the rifle.

    I equipped my M&P exactly like my (home defense) .223 AR's.
    Red Dot sight, Streamlight TLR-2 laser/light and sling stud for the Harris Bipod.
    So, except for a little recoil with the .223, shooting the S&W is just like shooting the .223


    Since I usually give the ammo to people shooting on my range (especially new shooters), their learning to shoot the AR can get a little expensive.
    Now when they want to learn to shoot the AR I have them shoot MANY rounds through the 22 first.
    Then when they pick up the .223 AR they are completely at home with it.

    The S&W M&P paid for itself in about two months with .223 ammo savings.

    Plus, everyone has a ball blasting with the M&P.

    The M&P is also more neighbor friendly than the loud .223 when shooting low light/dark laser/light practice.
