Mossberg is joining industry heavyweights in the AR-15 market such as Remington, Ruger, and S&W. Mossberg wants to differentiate themselves in the market by going with a A2-style (carry handle) receiver instead of the A3-style. Featuring A2 front and rear sights with a carry handle picatinny rail if you want to mount optics. Most tactical .22s have a 16" barrel, but Mossberg has decided to go with an 18" barrel for a better sight radius and a more traditional look. Also featuring a full length picatinny rail hand guard and a 10 round or 25 round magazine. Mossberg is offering these guns in a fixed and an adjustable stock.

For the price this is really a good deal! My 10 year old son is thrilled to have a new .22 that looks like a real AR-15. Understand though, it's not as detailed and authentic as the Colt M4 .22 I bought a few days ago.
The Colt cost $500 and this one was half that, so they had to cut corners somewhere. The entire frame is made of what looks like molded thermoplastic. It doesn't feel "cheap" though, and the plastic looks of good quality. My son did have one complaint about the forearm rails being too "sharp" and hard to hold onto. I'm considering adding 3 long rail covers to soften the harshness of the rails.
It shoots well, and hasn't given us a single malfunction to date. Accuracy seems on par with other guns in this category. Remember, you always get what you pay for, which isn't a bad thing unless you're expecting to receive an exact replica of an AR-15/M-16, which this gun isn't. Young shooters will certainly enjoy having one of these under the Christmas tree.
