    Possibly stupid question. When you load the mags are you pulling the button down and dumping rounds in. Or are you loading one at a time ensuring that each rounds rim is ahead of the round below?
    Welcome to Africa, bring a hardhat.

    My 15-22 has also been impeccably reliable. I suggest a call to S&W.

    Ours have been very reliable given the limitations of the cartridge. I would contact Horace and Daniel and see if they'll fix it.

    Don't tell anyone, but I enjoy shooting the 15-22s with my kids more than my grown up rifles.

    It's my most fun gun to shoot for sure.
    Does anyone like pineapple on their pizza guns?

    100% agree. I always bring it with me to the range. Never had a problem with it.



    It's also not OEM
    If not me, then who?

    I wish S&W would make a pistol version again.

The only .22 I have in the stable currently is my M&P 15-22, and, in our last couple of outings, we've been spending increasingly large amounts of times dealing with malfunctions - mainly rounds going straight up at 90 degrees when stripping off the magazine. Due to the design of the mag, this requires stripping the magazine, and wrestling the deformed case out of the front of the mag - not a great situation even without new shooters being in the mix.

    Since I'm having these problems across all seven of my magazines, I'm wondering a couple of things: First, is there an aftermarket magazine option that might improve reliability? If not, has anyone had luck using different brands or types of ammo? I've been using big box bulk pack stuff, but not sure if that's the root cause.

    If the consensus is this is just the cost of doing business with this platform, would the 10-22 be a more reliable choice?
    The M&P 15 22 mag is one of it's best features. They are so good there is a mag well conversion by Boonie packer to allow use og the M&P 15-22 mags with CMMG / Blackdog style conversions.

    The only really functional after market part is an improved firing pin by Volquarsen.

    Try some mini mags or the yellow and red box Aguila super extra which are cheaper, Mexican knock off mini mags.

    The Augila Super Extra has a muzzle velocity of 1255 fps with a copper plated round nosed bullet. I've found they work pretty well.

    CCI Mini-Mags, and the CCI .22 AR Tactical ammo at 1200 fps are also good choices.

    My S&W 15-22 (that I bought in 2009 to celebrate paying off the charge cards) is very reliable and was NOT ammo sensitive at all. I did find that if I was shooting a load of standard velocity with a lead bullet, I had to start with a clean and well lubed gun or it would jam up once it got dirty.
