Smith & Wesson’s M&P 15-22 is a quality firearm that will quickly become anyone’s rimfire favorite. The M&P 15-22 is Smith & Wesson’s .22 variant of the tactical M&P 15 semi-automatic rifle. This firearm is designed for recreational shooting (plinking) as well as small-game hunting.
It was modeled after the traditional AR-15 but – thanks to the lower forces of the smaller 22 LR cartridge – is made with lighter materials (polymer upper and lower receiver) rather than the conventional aluminum alloy found on ARs.
If you want to quiet down your M&P 15-22 to save your ears (or prevent annoying your neighbors) a .22 caliber suppressor is a must-have.
Suppressors are the most effective way to dampen the sound of your firearm and – while not a functional consideration – look pretty boss. They’ll add length and weight to any gun, so it’s important to know what to look for to ensure you get the benefits of a quieter firearm without throwing off its balance. Luckily, we’re here to help.
