Hey Maxi, when are you going to be getting your 15-22 back? Have you got your barrel threaded?

The flip up sights when in the down (folded down) position measure 5/8" from the rail to the highest point.

The very top of the sight when fliped up is 1 5/8" from rail to very top

They co-witness very well with my Primary Arms M4.

how is your sling mounted on the muzzle end? I bought a sling with mine and there's nothing to mount it to.

I am using the one piece picatinny mount (on eBay) from Isreal. It is VERY well made, no sharp edges and I got a sling to go with it. Some other buyers even got a flashlight too.

Very nice. Do you have a pic w/ them in the up position and the scope on? I want some but I think I may need a riser mount to get my scope in line though.

So i got to shoot today the Barska site worked great i love it, but i did learn some thing today. When you are buying ammo make sure the people who hand it to you hand you the right stuff!
I told the guys at the range I wanted CCI ammo 100round mini mag round nose. So they hand me a box and i go out to the range get ready to load and realize they have me subsonic ammo, so i figured im here ill try it... yeah it doesnt have enough kick to push the bolt back and eject and load the next round so i had to do it manually then a spent shell found its way back to the trigger and hammer. So when i tried to fire all i got was a click broke it down and the shell was preventing the hammer from moving all the way /sigh. Fix that and went back to the normal ammo and every thing was fine.

TLDR
Barska electro site 1x30mm = good
subsonic ammo in 15-22 = bad
subsonic ammo is cool though cause it makes like zero noise

Not very good pics but hopefully you get the idea. First one is just the front iron sight up. Second one is with the front and back irons up. It was hard to get these pics using just a portable digital with auto focus.

One reason for butpad

-if you take off stock you will notice that there is a plastic cork thingy, if you pull that off the tube is great for storing batts and ammo, you get a little more room if you leave the cork thingy off, reinstall your stock and add a butpad to keep it from falling out.

The only problem with that is if the stuff stored in the receiver extension slides out into the stock, it could jam it up so that you cannot retract the stock.

Why do you sit it it in the corner? Has it been bad?

I just returned from the range today and the UTG covers stayed in place on mine. I dont' know why yours wouldn't ? These UTG's I have are the small individual covers that are about 3" each in length.

Hmm... that might explain the movement since your gripping the panels. I have the broom handle on the rail and hold onto that and not onto the panels. I actuallly find my UTG's to be on the rail solid to the point of having a seriously hard time moving them manually to position them when I put them on...... don't know ?

This is my first post, though I've been lurking around these forums for awhile. I think I'm just about done outfitting my rifle with the exception of finding a front sling adapter at a decent price (I can't stomach paying $20-$30 for 10 cents of material). I personally prefer the iron sights to my Barska red dot sight in most cases, though it is pretty fun. I love the rifle and just couldn't help but showcase mine as well.

Jakatan, coming along very nicely! I know what you mean about the red dot. I used mine today and preferred the irons over using the red dot. I'm leaning more toward a 2x scope with crosshairs. I'll just put the red dot back on the Ruger MKII.

I decided to get a scope to replace the red dot sight for when I wanted to use an optic. It's a centerpoint 3x-9x illuminated... I picked it up from walmart for about $60. I need to buy some new scope rings for it but for now some old ones that used to belong to an m16 will do.

I've read some good things about the centerpoint scopes from WalMart. As mentioned it is a good idea to use better scope rings.

For scope rings, do you or anyone else have any recommendations?

I am using a NcSTAR AR Riser With Quick Release Weaver Mount Item#:MARFQ and Medium Rings. Leupold are recommended because they are made in the States, in Portland Oregon. This setup co-witneese perfect with the iron sights. That way you don't have a different cheek weld from open sights to scope. Oh yeah, it is a 50mm scope.

Yeah, they're not the rings that came with it (The ones that came with my scope were dovetail). The ones I have now are a bit nicer, but they're also a bit older and have some wear to them.

Jakatan, what do you think of the UTG fore grip?

Now that is VERY nice. Two thumbs up on that paint job! That makes me want one of those rifles more than ever!

It works and fits my hand pretty well and hasn't budged on me yet. For only 12 dollars along with free shipping from amazon it was a great deal.

Does anyone have a picture of an M&P 15/22 with a carry handle/stock front sight? If not, if anyone has the carry handle and could take a pic I would really like to see that. Thanks in advance!

Rip, your foregrip looks like a UTG, is your carry handle UTG as well? That setup, minus the bipod, is exactly what I'm considering. Thank you!

Added the UTG laser/flashlight combo and UTG foregrip yesterday. I got the pressure switch to go w/ it but they sent the wrong one so still waiting for the correct piece. Put the Tasco 1x30 red dot up there a week or so ago. The flash hider is for a 10/22. Had a friend at work turn it on the lathe to make it fit my barrel. The front sling mount is just some off brand universal unit. Still looking for a decent sling that isn't overpriced.

Thanks. It also gives me access to the switch w/ my thumb in that location. I just have to lift my thumb and flip the switch up. Plus it's just a bit too large to go on the side for me.

The grip is a UTG , I'm not sure of the brand of the handle. It was around $35 from a local place.

Belt Fed, In that second pic, what did you do to give your barrel that suppressed look?

Just curious..

i built a shroud for it to a spec out of t6 billet aluminum that makes it butt up against the hand guard... then i removed enough stock from the inside so that the rifle felt balanced to me and screwed it on...
