This is my first post on this forum. I bought a S&W MP 15-22 S/N starting with DVP from a local gun store recently.
I have put 1500 rounds of Winchester Dynapoint GT through it thus far with only a few FTF's. The firing pin left good indentations which tells me the issue may have been ammo related and that does not bother me at all.
The rifle had all the blue springs inside on the Bolt and the FCG. I am in the process of setting this up to mimic my actual rifle which is a Noveske N4 set up with:
- Aimpoint T1 in Larue mount
- Geiselle SD-E two stage trigger
- LMT SOPMOD stock w/ VLTOR A5 extension
- Tango Down QD stubby grip
- Magpul MOE grip
- Surefire G2 in a VLTOR mount
- PWS FSC 556 MB
- VTAC 2pt. sling
Troy flip ups (I don't mind the fixed sights on my M&P but if I come across some cheap flip ups I will buy them.
This MP 15-22 will be used for fun, training, and to introduce new shooters to the rifle.
So far I have not added any thing to the MP 15-22 but in the near future I am going to start off with a sling set-up. I am looking for advice on how to set-up a 2 point sling.
One idea I was throwing around was a Midwest Industries #13 rear mount on the receiver extension, Magpul sling attachment on the front rail, and a CQD two point/one point convertible sling which I think uses HK hooks.
My second concern is the trigger. I am looking for the most dead nuts reliable 2 stage trigger I can buy for this rifle. I noticed that the trigger pins are recessed in the lower receiver though so can I use regular trigger pins ?
Also what 2 stage trigger do you guys recommend ? I don't care if the 2 stage is clean, crisp, or light but I want it to help me emulate the feel of the 2 stage so I don't try to shoot off reset like with the single stage this comes with standard.
I shoot the two stage trigger by letting out the trigger all the way and pulling all the way through. I shoot the single stage triggers like I do my glock which is off reset.
As for the other accessories I was looking for cheaper alternatives to what I have on my rifle since this is not something I will be depending my life on or using as a duty weapon. I guess I'll come out and just say that I would be open to airsoft equivalents to some of these parts like the SOPMOD stock but I don't know where to find those things.
Any advice would be appreciated.
