I owned one for about a year here is my opinion.
All around great rifle
Made of plastic and polymer
Difficult to change rail
I am not a big fan of the extremely long magazine
I ended up selling mine to buy a CMMG Quebec-A. It is a standard AR lower, with a .22 upper. It has a dust cover and F/A, which isn't a big deal at all. The reasons I decided to get rid of it were just my opinion. I like having one closer to the weight and profile of an M4. My CMMG has a 14.5" exposed barrel, with 1.5" of extra barrel length inside the upper to bypass the pesky tax stamp.
I would recommend the M&P15-22 to anyone. I personally just prefer the Quebec-A over it. But please know the CMMG is not any better, but just more of what I wanted. I also wanted to be able to change uppers after seeing the CMMG. It is equally as accurate. So what I am saying is the M&P 15-22 is a top notch .22. You will most likely be tickled to death with it. If you can get one for the $369 that Sportsman's Warehouse had them for, you need to be on that like a duck on a junebug. The are a ton of fun.
