Default Carry handle

Read several posts re: carry handles for the 15-22. Looking for a simple handle, standard, nothing fancy. Any idea where such a beast could be found? Thanks.

I have a cheap UTG Version 6. Has a good matte finish that matches the rifle well. I have seen others such as CAA that look like they are spray painted shiny.

That UTG version does have a real nice matte to it, you can tell in the photos. I have an airsoft one made by SRC (metal) but the sights are junk, and it's not as matte.

Thanks Folks,

I've ordered the UTG-AR15 which is advertised as fitting the 15-22. We'll know in a few days.

Thanks again.

Default Carry handle

Wow. I looked on Brownells and balked at the price. I might re-purchase if I can find a price like that again--I like that look. I instead opted for a set of Magpuls.

Holy mackerel!

Thank you Gentlemen for the heads up.

I just did some searching for the UTG AR15 carry handle and found one, brand new at Amazon for $27.95 with free shipping.

You guys and this forum are the "Best Of The Best!"

I put the one that came on my M&P-15 on the 15-22 and it added a little weight to it and I like the look. So it's easy, go get a M&P-15 and your set.

I am seriously considering that option.

Does that UTG match up well with stock front sight or do you run anything different?

Looks very nice.

Thanks.

Yes, you can use it with factory front sight.

Hello,
I'm a newbie to AR15's
I picked up I guess what is a stripped M&P so I'm looking for sights.
Friends are trying to talk me into Red Do's but I would like to start out with Iron sights and prefer the A2 Carry Handle for the rear and for the front a fixed sight to mount on the short rail that's provided.
Can you tell me where I can get a M&P A2 Carry handle or who makes it? I would like to get the standard one that comes with one. Is it S&W or?
Hope you can help .I need to shoot this thing soon. Thanx in Advance!

I picked up the UTG version and added the A-2 front sight. Works like a charm! The scope helps for the l-o-n-g shots!

I just bought one for my 15-22/M4 conversion, its a new Colt takeoff for $65 shipped from the EE on AR15.com. Those can be found pretty easily as a lot of guys take them off to mount optics. I have always thought you get what you pay for with sights, although I'm sure some of the less expensive ones are nice too.

If its mil-spec it will fit, no matter the brand, they usually don't have a brand name on them anyway.
