I was looking at getting a M&P 15-22 for a cheaper shooting solution but decided that i should just spend the extra money now and get an AR-15 lower and slap a Spike's .22 complete upper on it. So does anyone near Plymouth, MA have one that i could check out ? If not post pics of the Spikes or what ever upper you are currently using. Thanks

I'm using one from Model 1 Sales. Pictures and a range report are here, post #123.

A lot of fun! [smile]

I have a Spikes upper on my NES lower. I've only got about 600-700 rounds through it, but so far it's running great. There were a couple of FTF's with the first couple of mags, but those seemed to be limited to a specific mag and I haven't had any other failures yet. Accuracy is pretty good too. Mine seems to prefer Aguila Super Extreme, but it also shoots pretty well with Federal Champion and Winchester 555 bulk (I haven't tried any other brands out yet).

Overall, this thing is a blast to shoot.

Here's a pic of my setup as it is today (not quite finished yet):

Thats what I wanted at first, but the $$$ for the YHM and fake can plus the wait. Spikes is still back ordered on the YHM rails. Also no mag included?????? The set up I wished for ,was a touch over 700.00.
