This is Redeye's M&P 22LR AR. It has 10,000 rds through the gun. It is that most absolutely filthy gun I've ever seen that remains functional. He's considering cleaning it. :ohdear: He had ONE misfire today out of around 300rds, at least.

Yeah, It was a light primer strike. All it needed was some lube.

Wow. :shock:

Reminds me of my old Marlin Model 60, except y'all's gun still worked even with that much crud in it whereas the Marlin choked after a single mag.

That does look - untidy. Thanks for posting the images, nice to know that some things keep working, no matter how badly maintained.

Yeah, I sold it to a friend of mine back in 2007.

Obviously this is propaganda and lies. ARs are jammomatics and require an absolutely regimental cleaning standard, and a 22 conversion would be even worse.









That's fucking awesome, I think that just sold me on an M&P22

What a wonderfully dirty rifle.
I'm glad I'm not the one cleaning it.

Crazy stuff. :awesome:

Dude, that's fucking sweet! :clap: Makes me want to buy one, just to never, ever clean it...

But then, even my AK's get cleaned, once in a blue moon.

I don't do it, people keep volunteering...

Wow. Not sure I'd try that with my 22LR conversion bolt, but still - wow.

What do they go for? I wonder if it's cheaper to build one of those over a dedicated 22LR upper so I can trash my lower in style...

You can't build one. M&P 15-22's are a complete rifle you buy from S&W. They cost around $400. You can't put a 15-22 upper on an Ar lower as the M&P lower is slightly smaller and the M&P upper is made for it.

thats pretty epic 8-)

I'm guessing that even though it wasn't cleaned, oil was still added right?
(it looks like it, but just curious to confirm)

Yeah, I'm guessing that's how that gourmet carbon pudding was made :lol:

If you don't hafta run it wet, it ain't much of an AR analog...

I spray a good bit of lube on it every 500 rounds or so.

Yep they're very reliable, especially with the latest extractor/spring that S&W has been using for the past year or two.

Well, if I were to ever get a .22 LR AR analogue, I think I've found the one I'm getting.

Thanks, RG.

No, no, no.

The only solution is to run a top-teir AK-22. Someone call Izmash. If they don't answer, or won't do it, call Molot.
