Because it’s got a new paint job. New.” Sigh. The M&P15-22, a .22lr version of the AR-15 rifle, now comes with a new paint job. Hooray. ◀Previous Post Next Post▶ RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Winchester Data Shows Hunters and Target Shooters are Increasingly Shooting AR Pattern Rifles What A Deep Dive on China’s QBZ-191 Service Rifle Can Teach Us About the Army’s New XM5 Gun Industry CEOs Counter Attacks, Misinformation and Lies During Carolyn Maloney’s Show Trial Hearing 30 COMMENTS It’s a great little rifle, wonderful training tool and fun at the range, but come on guys… This is akin to Ford announcing, “New for 2014: The Ford F-150 Now Comes with A Black/Tan Paint Job” Reply Haha, I saw the video and sent it to him as a joke. I didn’t expect him to make a post out of it. But I laughed when he did. Reply Great stuff. I almost feel sorry for “Jim” of S&W for having to keep a straight face while pronouncing this a “new” product for 2014. Reply I read it first in Nick’s normal voice. And then I read it in his ‘deep sigh/sad voice’ I highly recommend the second. Reply Website says “Tan & Black” apparently they learned a lesson from Nike. Reply Nice save on their part. Calling it “Black and Tan” would be a great way to lose every sale to Irish folk in this country Reply I’ll give you one guess as to why I won’t be buying one. Reply Dont forget Ben & Jerry’s. Reply Or Yuengling. Reply On its website, S&W is calling it “Tan and Black,” rather than “Black and Tan.” Black and Tan has an unfortunate connection to British domination of Eire and would likely upset the Irish-American contingent. Reply This is actually legal in Britain being a rim fire and all, at least as far as I know, not sure about importing it. Reply In America, this is a Black & Tan. At least to the Scotch Irish in the mountains. Yeah, and it’s not Scot’s. Reply M&p-22 and m&p 15-22 are not the same thing. Otherwise. Cool I guess. Reply Does it come with 3XL elite mall operator clothing? Heyyooo! Reply Standard issue for Covert Underwater Ninja Team Specialists… Reply Boring…. Reply You guys laugh, but in California manufacturers must certify every color of a handgun separately. Reply Black & tan, time to hit the bar. Reply I agree. As for the camo job, it’s pretty nice. I enjoy camo patterns and, NO, it’s NOT a tacticool thing. I’ve been fascinated by camo forever. I study it; it’s inherently interesting. Reply Pretty cool looking I suppose. My olive green one isnt going to cut it anymore, must upgrade. Reply Seems like a variant of the Vietnam Tiger Stripe pattern, which was, as I recall, an extreme optical elongation of the Woodland Pattern, barely in use here and there. Tiger Stripe seems to be making a comeback, here and there, in new variations. It was always better than Woodland. The Pentagon is SO prone to use the worst available pattern; I’m not going to go into why I think this is so. Reply Instead of “compliant” models, we should say “oppressive government restriction” model. Reply This is a Black & Tan: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_and_Tan Reply I’ve had one for about a year now, and really have fun shooting it. Great gun. I just can’t remember what color it is. Guess I’ll open the safe and look, or not. But the gun is great, whatever the color. Reply I was hoping for a black and yellow, black and yellow. Reply You know what it is… (Yes I thought the same thing too) I refer you to the dewalt ar-15 Reply Ok, not a new rifle. Blatant attempt by S&W to pander to mall ninjas. I get all that. But here I am, a 57 year old OFWG that uses an M1 Carbine for home defense, and I’ve got to admit, that is a fine looking rifle. And I own absolutely nothing that is camouflaged. Rifle is shore purty, though. Reply This rifle is almost worth getting in pink Reply well, that’s a hell of a poor name for a rifle. Reply I have been contemplating which threaded .22 rifle for a suppressor host as my stamp should be coming any month now. Finally decided on the M&P 15-22. I went to every shop in town planning on just picking up a threaded black one . Then I saw this camo version and for $50 more, I thought it was pretty cool. And I am no mall ninja. What’s wrong with a little flavor to spruce things up a bit with the line-up? I’m an old guy, and I think it looks nice. Definitely a better camo paint job than I could do for 50 bucks.
