S&W 15-22 Owners

Post pics of your rifles and targets if you want.

Mine is just the way it came from the factory but I'm planning on adding a few things to improve on it.

Distance was 15 yards,using the iron sights,shooting 20 rounds of CCI mini-mag 40 grainers ( Mine seems to love these)



It was a cold snowy day,but proved to be just right for a little trigger time.

Good shooting

were you shooting offhand or taking a rest?

I've been looking at the bushnell MP 1x for target shooting and hunting.

Still thinking of which trigger I should go with (should help shrink the groups down a bit) the Timney 3.5 pound trigger seems like a good way to go.

shots were off a bench. Stock trigger.

Took it out shooting again today. New and old shooters were ringing the 100 yard gong off the bench or offhand. The Burris scope makes it so easy.
Most fun rifle I own.

I understand what you mean,everything on the little rifle is in the right place,the weight is perfect for just about anything the user wants to do,and the accuracy is definitely present.

Nice rifles you have there.

Well I've ordered an open style holographic sight instead of the bushnell mp I had in mind at first (due to funding contraints) but it should serve my purposes well.

Still haven't completely made my mind up about the trigger yet.

I'll tell y'all what... I shot one of these for the first time this past weekend.

It was wearing a Trijicon reflex sight and had an AR Gold trigger...that thing was quite the shooter.

It is on my bucket list, but not quite at the top. Great guns, reliable, accurate, and fun as all get out.....when you can find ammo.

Burris Rimfire 3-9x - Have not shot it for groups with this set up yet. At 3x it's a fairly quick scope and at 9x, 100 yards is too easy.

I've seen this rifle going gor around $500-$599 lately. All different colors too. Now if the craziness would stop and I could find some more 22 lr ammo as a range session easily takes up 500 rds.

My lgs had the mini-mags in stock...but I could only afford 2 boxes at the time,I'll be stocking up on more later.

Things should be calming down some and we should start seeing things go back to normal.

The scope is a Weaver V3 in a Burris P.E.P.R. mount, the sights are Magpul, and the trigger has since been upgraded to a Rock River Arms 2-stage.
