Default M&P 15-22 Ejection Port Dust Cover by PainterlyShotGroup review.

Hey all!

Painterlyshotgroup (Doug) was kind enough to send me out an ejection port dust cover to install and review. It took me a couple weeks to get this done due to other things going on at home, but I finally got it done!

The components arrived packed inside a baggie with a full sheet of instructions. The components are the actual door, the hinge plate, the hinge rod, the spring and some 3M VHB Tape to affix the hinge plate to the upper receiver.

I have an early serial number rifle, it's been shot a lot and it's been cleaned A LOT. I think my use of CLP with Teflon made my install harder than it normally would be. Typically the 3M VHB tape grabs a hold of what ever it touches and it does not let go! But in my case I could not get the tape to stick to my receiver no matter how much I prepped the surface.

I ultimately chose to use a type of Super Glue marketed by Locktite it's a two part product that uses an activator and a Super Glue. You apply the activator to both pieces of plastic and let them set for a minute, then you apply the glue to one piece of plastic only and then bond them together.

That did the trick for me and this door is not coming off! But for those of you with relatively new guns or guns that have never been tainted on the outside with oil, you should have no problems with the adhesion of the VHB tape.

Fit and Finish are excellent for a hand made part, I don't know how Doug has the time and patience to do this, but he did a fantastic job! He used a material called Kydex which is utilized to make holsters for pistols and revolvers. Doug then sands the outside of the door smooth and adds a magnet to the back side of the door which holds the door shut against the bolt.

When you pull the charge handle the bolt slides back and the door flips down just like it would on a regular AR. The only thing you can not do with this door is keep the bolt back and the door closed. But honestly I'm not sure why that would be an issue.

I can't say how well the door will keep debris out, I don't intend on testing this by dragging my rifle through sand, stones and dirt. But as far as looks and function goes, it does what it's supposed to do, and looks great while doing it!

A video will be available shortly but in the mean time here are some photos to chew on.

I think Doug is going to be busy for a while!

This thing is really cool.. It adds to the motions when you pull the charge handle and the door flicks open. Really cool accessory!

Really? Thats awesome!

As an aside, I tried firing the gun with the dust cover closed and it works nicely. However, the first time I did this, after a couple of times the magnet broke off. I have since made a fix for the cover (I make a wider base for the magnet as well as recessing the magnet so it sits flush). I just got back from testing it out again. This time I ran through 50 rounds of various ammo (remminton bulk, federal match bulk, Aguilla super max) re-closing the door each round, and out of those 50 shots I had 6 FTE's. Some of which may have been the ammo, but I'm sure the door came into play. On the whole though, the door opens beautifully when you shoot the gun with it closed. Understandably most people won't be re-closing the door for each shot.

I'll upload photo's of the fix soon.

Just thought I'd update you guys on how it functions in this regard. Brett I sent you a PM, but let me know if you want me to send you the fix for the magnet.

Doug,

Nope I'm good bud! Post up some photos when you get the time! I think the recessed magnet idea should make the back side of the door look even better!

Just installed PainterlyShotgroup's new dust cover on my 15-22 and it really rocks. This is a well built, fully functional dust cover that when installed properly looks like a factory part. It even allows you to shoot with the cover closed. Fine addition to the gun. It looks so nice I'd like to get another one for the other side but then everything in moderation. I highly recommend this item. It is great looking as well as functional. Thanks Painterly.

Default Use the Dust Cover on M&P .223 Sport?

Doug,
How do you think this might work on the new Sport Version of the M&P 15? It does not come with a dust cover but just wondering if the bolt would move with much more force than a 22 LR of course?

If you think it would work, it would give you another market.

It looks great and would buy one in a split second if you think it would stay on.

Thanks, George

Hey George,
I'd need measurements of the ejection port cover on the sport model. I took a look at some photos of one and it seems the ejection port opening eats into the brass deflector somewhat. I'm not sure if that would end up being an issue. I am kind of confused as to why S&W left both a forward assist and dust cover off of that model .223. I can understand with a .22 but wouldn't the sport model .223 be machined with the same high tolerances as the other M&P15's? In any case, just off the top of my head I am almost thinking you'd be better off using a normal AR dust cover door, since the bolt on the sport has the notch in it. I think where I'd come in, is maybe making a hinge plate for the normal AR door to connect to so you can mount it on your gun.
However, if you like my design, I'll build you one to the dimensions of the ejection port of your gun and you can test it out. I think you might be right about having a market there.
Let me know...

Would these dust covers still be available for purchase? I have a 15-22 and it's the one thing I really wish I had, and this one looks NICE!

Just an aesthetic some people feel is missing from the gun. Not necessarily everyone's cup of tea.

It Covers the Bolt Carrier blocking Dust , Dirt & Sand in the Wind while not being Fired. Hence "Dust Cover"

But this is the Defined Pourpose... & could go In OP I guess for people not knowledgable.

""Improves reliability and function; prevents unnecessary wear. Keeps dirt and debris from entering through the ejection port and obstructing the action.""

so basically you're saying it's a solution to a problem, that doesn't exist?

And probably 50 percent of what's done to these guns aren't either?

I think it's a perfectly logical addition. If you don't think so, don't buy it.

Yeah kinda one of those things.. Did I need an M4 front end? Nope.. Did I want an M4 front end? YEP.... Dust covers don't really apply to ANY non Military or LEO rifle, because I think most of us take care of our weapons. But with that said.. It's a worthwhile addition!

Brett does a great job on this video. Still waiting to get my 15-22 but know I want one of these for it. Seems to work great and looks good as well. Agree with Brett that I am not sure it would do as well as one for ARs. I also agree with him that I am not going to toss my 15-22 in a mud puddle or run my truck over it while it lies in the sand.

Thanks to Doug and Brett

I have one... It was not made by the same person though. This cover is made of aluminum the original in this thread was made of kydex. It does need a pin and spring. You'd have to paint it as well.

I used this on my rifle... I have one left. PM me for details.

I'd be interested in one of these (new though). Any chance of someone making these again?

Default PainterlyShotGroup Dust Cover

I saw your dust cover and it looks great. Will it work just as well on an M&P 15 Sport 223/556? If so, what are they costing? please email me at todd@acfwest.com.

Hmmmmm. I'm going to have to build these since there is an interest in the dust cover. I've never wanted one, but I'll design one and see where it goes. I'll start working on one this weekend.
