Cool Ruger or S&W rifle?

Yo gun crazy people,
Iím looking for a cal. 22 rifle and I did spot two I kind of like.
First one is Ruger SR-22, and the second one is S&W M&P15-22.
Does anybody played with those two rifles? Both are pretty much in the same price range (S&W 469$, Ruger 499$). Which one is more reliable and will be better for target shooting? What is your opinion?

Thx
Peter

Savage Arms as option C...

Of those two, I'd go with the Ruger since they seem to know their stuff when it comes to the .22. I've never shot either, as I bought the Savage instead so take my opinion as you'd like.

We have a S&W 15-22. It's not terribly accurate with any of the ammo we've tried so far. Nothing like a Ruger 10/22 (even base model) in accuracy.

I'm not that familiar with the SR-22. If it is a Ruger 10/22 around a Nordic Components type stock like it looks like, then it might be good with a little tweaking.

I'm sure you'll hear this a lot, but unless you really need that Tacticool looking rifle*, Ruger 10/22 is a great option that can be built up to do whatever you want. I've finally got mine tweaked where I was tearing nickel sized groups at 50 yards last weekend with quality ammo!




*not that there is anything wrong with that. Just understand what you're getting.

If you are looking for a good target .22, I'd get a decent bolt action. CZ and Savage would be at the top of my shopping list.

That Ruger SR-22 actually has guts from 10/22 rifle in AR-15 body.
I kind of like assault rifle look but I will look at that Savage rifle.

$100 bucks brand new. Marlin 795

Marlins are know for accuracy due to MicroGroove Rifling. Not a fan of the 10/22 or bolt action .22s.

I bought mine from Bass Pro on sale for $124.94 + rebate. I'm sure you can find someone else who has them on sale and then use the rebate.
