The 5 Best Scopes For Your M&P 15-22
When I first got my M&P 15-22, I thought, “Man, is this a sweet shooter.” Then as things moved along at the range, I thought, “You know what, I bet this thing is pretty accurate past 100 yards.” Thus, my need for a scope entered the picture.
To make the most of your M&P 15-22, you gotta get a solid scope. In this post, we take a look at some great value scopes that are going to make those 22LR projectiles reach out and touch something. You don’t want to spend too much but then again you don’t want to get a scope that’s junk either. I think we’ve found 5 scopes for your 15-22 that fit the bill below.
If you happen to own the Smith and Wesson M&P 15-22, you’re probably thinking of purchasing a nice scope to go with it. The Aimpoint Carbine Optic Sight is a high quality higher end scope with a high price tag as well.
Aimpoint is a top competitor for red dot sights and for good reason. The Aimpoint Carbine Optic Sight has a year of battery life on one Dl1/3N Battery (Even with constant use). Its waterproof housing is a great feature, so no need to worry about malfunctioning in undesireable weather conditions either.
A Length of 5.1″ and a Weight of 7.8 oz. means the light weight optic will allow you to keep going without tiring out. If you’ve got the extra to spend, don’t pass up this quality scope.
Leupold is well known for great scopes and so we had to include their 115388 Mark AR MOD 1 Rifle Scope. Being an imported product with United States manufacturing, quality control is a top priority, especially with a reputation of Leupold.
It fits and looks great on an AR platform but will work especially well with the Smith and Wesson M&P 15-22. The polymer/aluminum designs guarantees ruggedness for an overall great shooting experience.
A scope that is priced in the high $200’s should represent quality and Leupold did just that with the 115388 Mark AR MOD 1.
Bushnell makes fantastic optics and the Bushnell Optics Drop Zone-22 BDC Rimfire Reticle Riflescope with Target Turrets is what we mean by fantastic, especially at its low price (We love saving money!). A very well built scope with much preference from many users make the $Sub 100 price point an easy choice.
It even has a caliber specific reticle which is awesome for not having to worry about the accuracy (Because this scope will do what you need it to).
38 – 40 grain 22 long rifle rounds are what the scope is calibrated for and it will zero in at around 50 yards, with a point of aim out to about 125 yards.
If you’re short on cash and need a premium scope, check out this Bushnell!
The cheapest scope out of the bunch and it surprisingly has quite the reputation. For around the $40 mark you get lots of great benefits with the Plinker-22. It’s everything proof (Water, fog and shock) while the length is 12 in and the weight is 11.46 oz.
If you need a quality scope that’ll stand up to anything and perform, check out the Barska Plinker-22.
Alright, so the last scope on our list is from an amazing high end camera maker and they sure do make nice scopes! The Nikon P-Rimfire BDC 150 has very clear glass with a very sharp reticle, which means you get to see your targets the way you want too. (Who doesn’t want to)?
The reticle offers shooters open circle aiming points from 50 all the way to 150 yards. You’ll get precise hand turn adjustments as well as anti-reflective compounds integrated for the most ideal sight picture possible.
In the mid $100 price range is a Nikon scope that offers competitive performance it will assist you in creating the optimal shooter experience when pinpoint accuracy, reliability and ruggedness count.
