I have one and very happy with it. I did replace the 2 stage trigger with a CMC 3.5# flat blade and couldn't be happier with the results.

The rifle shines when fed good match ammo. Very decent groups when I do my part. However it will not group any better then a standard 15-22 when the PC is using bulk ammo.

I would buy one again if needed.

I was just checking a new one out at my LGS.. Looked great, I was tempted but noticed rt away, it had the old style handguard.. Other than that, the 2 stage trigger was nice, fluted barrel was very appealing visually and nice to have the upgrade but fixed Magpul stock.. and of course, being a Ma. compliant rifle, no muzzle device or threaded barrel.
I figure I can sell one of my other regular 15-22 and kick in the extra cash... but it has to have the new handguard..

Not worth it.

The only real difference is a marginal barrel with an odd chamber and a trigger that is just ok.
Most everything gets replaced, so why pay more?

Is this personal experience or hearsay? Have you compared both side by side? I have so I'm curious.

For the record, I've always purchased the PC model.

Personal side by side.
For everything else I have seen from S&W the PC model is the one to go to. With the 15-22 it's not.
Unless you think the rifle is perfect as is from the factory and are not going to change a thing and you REALLY want the MagPul stuff, it's just marketing.
The chamber is an oddball that you can't shoot CCI Stingers.

This ought to keep you busy.

IIRC, among some owners of both the PC and standard 15-22 the difference between them wasn't much more than a yawn.

I wouldn't necessarily call a Laney chamber an oddball; a bit uncommon perhaps. It's tighter than a standard chamber but not as tight as a match chamber. Yes, that means that Stingers and other hypervelocity rounds will create too much pressure but you purchase a PC model because it should have better accuracy. Standard velocity rounds are more accurate than high velocity and hypervelocity so shooting Stingers out of a PC model defeats the purpose of having the PC model.

After I looked it up when the PC came out, the only difference I saw was the length of the chamber.
The longer case length of the stinger is what starts the over pressure possibility. From what I read.
As far as low velocity vs standard vs high vs hyper, everyone has their opinion about the "best" or "most accurate"

Thanks for the info guys.

Picked my PC the other day. I like it. The extra cost didn't bother me. Besides, people are spending that and more just to spiff theirs up. And if not being able to shoot stingers is the only real complaint them I'm good. Who wants to shoot expensive stringers all the time anyway?
