Soft point might be okay, since there's obviously no steel core in it. I think at least haha.

Yea it is.. but when they are the only company that makes accessories for this gun you kinda have to deal with what you have offered...

Haha thats what I was just doing.. that is the reason I started taking pics as I was dissassebling it.. Its nice cause you can field strip it in literally 2 minutes, clean it in 2, and reassemble it in 2.. Easiest gun I have ever owned to break down..

How's the recoil? I've never shot one of those, but I imagine recoil management is optimized with the bolt assembly so far to the rear. Not that .223 or 5.56 has much recoil, but I'll bet it's nearly cut in half.

Recoil is probably half that of an M4 and there is little or no rise while shooting.. firing multiple rounds I can still stay on target with no adjustments.. Pretty well rounded firearm.. Only bad thing is that MSAR is nearing bankruptcy so I may be SOL if something breaks..

Or it might go up in value as long as you don't break it. Being able to stay on target is what I love about my M&P 15-22, it's a good thing too because it will take at least 10 rounds to take down someone breaking into my home with .22

It is a lot of fun. You *might* be better off buying a normal AR lower with a .22 upper, but that will be more expensive.

The 15-22 was made for .22 so everything works like an AR 15 should work. A lot of conversion kits won't allow the bolt to lock to the rear on an empty mag. The 15-22 is only about 5lbs too. It comes set up the way most people mod their .223 AR's so for the price its a good buy IMO.

Perfect for tactically hunting ground hogs.

Man I dont know what kinds of hogs you have up there but where I just moved from in Texas they are 200+ lbs for a small sow.. My buddy and I would go hunting every weekend just to take a notch out of the population and it usually took a couple rounds of my STG to drop one.. But they are such a nuisance that we just dropped them and let the coyotes eat them.. They tear EVERYTHING up

But if I was going to get a .22 it would be that M&P.. had an AR once and loved it but dont really have a need for one anymore..

I mean the little rodent, you must be thinking of the big ass wild pigs. I wouldn't go after one of those with a .22, that would just **** it off. If I wanted to kill a wild pig I'd bring my Mosin Nagant

You can't go wrong with a ruger 10/22 either but I like the AR platform much better. Colt's .22 version is inferior to S&W (IMO), and ruger makes a look-a-like ar .22.

Haha I gotcha.. yes I mean wild boar.. those things are disasterous when you are trying to run a farm so we would usually kill at least 2-3 each time we went out.. and during the winter if the temp is below 40 we can clean them and make sausage.. anything above that and you are in danger of hookworms..

I've had it once before. I thought it was pretty good. I lived in Texas for a few months when I was active duty. I heard a lot of people liked to go wild boar hunting but I never tried it.

its fun.. but you dont really have to be a great hunter.. they are one of the most retarted animals.. only bad thing is that they are aggressive at times.. so if one charges you you better kill it or find a tree

I watched bear grylls fight one on man v. wild they seem like they can hold their own.

Dont think I would try that.. Saw that one too Boo for Bear Grylls..

They are fun to hunt though cause its so easy and they will literally keep coming back regardless if there are dead relatives laying where they were just shot.. Get you some deer corn, an opening, some diesel, and bury that **** and they will keep coming back.. We just sat on a ridge about 100 yards away and blasted away..

How is the trigger pull on the bullpup ? I've heard talk that it can feel disconnected because of the design?

Yea you have to shell out over a hundred dollars for the bolt though.. But good thing is that there is a plastic cover over the left hand ejection port that you just twist off and move to the other side

There are ejection ports on both sides of the stock so its lefty friendly

Ah okay. I don't think I'd want to pay any more extra for a different bolt. What I'm loving about the AK is that it's pretty much set up for a lefty. I can keep my left hand on fire control the whole time while I change mags, operate the safety, or rack the action with my right hand (reaction side).
