Scope for M&P 15-22??
 
Hey Guys,

I really don't know much about scopes, rings, mounts, etc. and I need some help.

I have a 15-22 with iron sights and I guess it's called the picatinny rail.

I would like to put a scope on to shoot 50~100 yards max.

I would also like to be able to use the existing iron sights while the scope is mounted, if that is possible.

Please let me know what you think. I am especially confused about the rings and what rings/mounts are compatible with the rifle.

Thanks,
winch

Some guys use a Nikon P22. I have an old Redfield 3-9x40 Revolution I mounted on mine. I got some 45 offset mounts for the MBUS irons.

Nikon P-22 with the P series mount here.

I put a Millett 1-4x on mine.

I have a Burris MTAC on an AR that is nicer, but more expensive. The Burris TAC30 is in between.

To use the iron sights, you need to either mount the scope up high to be able to look under, or to use a quick detachmount to remove the scope.

Another option is 45 degree offset iron sights. These put the sights to the side, so you rotate the gun 45 degrees (to the left normally for right hand shooters) and use the irons.

Weaver 1-3 in a burris pepr mount.

If you want to co-witness the iron sights, you need a red dot sight. Good choices are the Primary Arms Micro Dot and Bushnell TRS-25.

My suggestion is a scope on a quick release mount and flip-up iron sights. Or a max setup would be a scope and an offset red dot.

All good options mentioned. I like the vortex Strikefire personally. Its worth a look IMHO and comes with mount and everything you need to do exactly what you want.

Unless your doing BULLSEYE shooting, a co-witnessed Red Dot with iron sights is the best, cleanest, way to go. Depending on what your shooting of course, but, if its targets, plinking, squirrels, rabbits, cans, jugs - milk type :-) and things of that order, the Red Dot is excellent for this under 100 yards.

With skill and practice, some are good with their DOT out to 2-300 yards. Now when you get into WHICH Red Dot, hahahahah well, that just depends on how much you want to spend. You can spend as little as $80 and get a good all around Dot, and as much as $800 or more, for a military quality piece. But, if funds are limited, there are several very good choices for @ $100 or so.

Good luck with your decision, and let us know what you choose :-)
