Smith, &, Wesson, 1522 sport, Oh bait, hi guys.

This is rack and load.

And this is video that I said, I'd do a bit of an update on my 15 22 spore thrown on a few little different bits.

You know, stuff that seems to be working well for me.

And you know, here you go I just basically told what I've done so far.

So you'll, notice that stock is different I have actually got the the box for this.

This is a mission first tactical, basically a milspec buffer tube, minimalist stock, the one that you get on the 15 22 is pretty awful really so that's soon sort of got yanked off and thrown to one side.

And threw this thing gone, this thing's supposed to be strong impact, shatter resistant highest weight to strength coefficient C.

So they say operator, designed fatigue avoidance, highest level function reliability, temperature and humidity stable jungle desert, ice pack, whatever that means that's pretty much it.

Um difference between a let's say, this is a separate video difference between milspec and commercial it's all about size baby, that's, all I'm gonna say so yeah, that's, basically, yeah, obviously it's still got its adjustment there just like it.

Normal it's, just minimal.

It's, just minimal there's.

Not all this crappy sort of out of the way.

So it's really lie it's.

Moderately sort of soft, monet's probably hard rubber, not as grabby it's like the soft rubber that you can get and there's a bit of a logo on there.

So that's that's pretty cold.

You've still got a sort of slinging points today.

If you so desire, but I like it was a little tight at first when I first threw this thing gone, but works.

Well works.


Next thing you'll notice is big charging handle, I know what people are gonna say as well, what have you still got your backup iron sights underneath the scope? When you can't use them? I know, I just left them on cuz, I'm I've, kind of got this scope on test it's, a Northwest custom parts, scope very similar to the vortex that everyone's using it.

In fact, is pretty pretty much the same probably made in, you know, the same country need.

I say more, but pretty cool kind of got that on test trinity force.


I believe that it is to be fair.

I think I'll go back to a red dot kind of prefer a red dot.

I don't know, I'm not decided yet, not decided yet, but the cocking handle charging handle.

This is a next-level armament, warned sorry, I'm off camera that.

So next level armament me being a lefty.

I like to be able to sort of just grab that with any.

And and but that is what is this it's really? Cool? You can't? Miss, even when you've got a big scope on it, you still off camera, sorry, guys.

So that is a call call charging handle.

Highly recommended, you know, get rid of the stop one, especially if you're a lefty it's, it's cool.

You can just use it from any side.

So really cool aluminium as well, it's, not plastic really cool.

Um took off the stock pistol grip.

So to speak through on Mike Paul, just just feels better or maybe don't fit perfect it's.

Because as you know, fifteen, twenty twos, aren't milspec, where is this Mike pull and grip is basically says, well, there's a bit of a gap there, Trinity force, ambidextrous safety catch.

So that is pretty cool.

So me being a lefty.

Sorry, guys, I'm, totally going off.

Camera, let's get it up here? So yeah, there's.

You ambidextrous safety.

Catch works for me works for me, really well, I think I need to make an adjustment for that.

Because it really should sort of just click around where it's it's, not I think I've probably missed a spring, or something knowing me, mmm, Trinity force, big, mag, release so that's, nice, nice and easy to fit as well that's sort of metal as well.

Okay, it does look cool and just makes reloading quicker and easier 3:09 3d, printed Maxwell.

And that really does basically it while he does what it says on the 10.

He swells up the Mack makes the hole a bit bigger to throw in your magazine.

I've got a magazine.

Yeah magazine here.

So you can just basically throw it, throw it him in, and he goes and and they're.

Not mentioned scope currently on test.

This scope is 1 to 8 to 24 very much.

It is virtually a vortex strike eagle.

Ok, it's pretty much pretty much the same, but like I say, I'm gonna go back to red dot, I think and I just prefer the red dots on an AR I, don't know, just - I'm, um on a 15 to 20 - anyway.

So that I see that's pretty much what I've done to this white as you know, when I first bought this rifle, it already got these panels on the on the envelope and got this VG, this vertical grip and I've got them.

My pull back up irons on there.

Yeah, I seriously think I'm.

Just gonna go back to a red dot I had got a sight mark red dot on this rifle, which is nice because the backup sites put perfectly Co witness to with it.

So for the battery ever went, I could pop up the sights and stuff can still rock and roll with it.

So yeah, interesting interesting blows where I'm at with this 15 22 and minute.

Everything works nice for me.

The trigger me I'm, not not a trigger snaps.

I'll just fire off.

Never I've been I'll.

Probably will leave the trigger.

Mm, I, don't know, maybe one day I'll swap it out I, don't know, just don't know.

But at the minute pot from you know wanted to throw a a red Dom back on it I'm, pretty much happy with this thing at the minute.

So anyway, guys just thought I'd show you where I'm at and what I've done so far to this thing, nothing like amazingly spectacular I'm, just sending it up, sort of how I want it.

But love this thing.

You know, I've used and tested and reviewed.

You know, the Christopher's great rifle, the Tippmann gray rifle, many Northwest, custom parts, rifles, love and Bob 1002.

Some about 15 20 was cool.

Yeah, if you hate polymer, then you know, it's, not one Pierre, but do you know what a Smith & Wesson? If they're watching we said, poppy, aim cuz, I'm, just, you know, some nobody on YouTube.

But imagine if Smith & Wesson made this in a metal version, you know, obviously it's gonna cost a bit more get that you know, but they're set up for that aren't.

They Smith & Wesson I'll, just make a metal version of the 15 22 call it.

There I don't know, the 15 22 m4 metal, I, don't know, I'd buy one award because you wouldn't get the flex like you do in the the standard polymer one, but yeah, hey-ho.

But yeah, metal.


Smith, &, Wesson, mate.

One that they'll just go like hotcakes.

They would go seriously.

There would I dive.

One, I'd, still keep this.

But I'd have a metal one as well.

Yeah, 15:22 em.

You vote that here first and lock and load.

Okay, I want some royalties if that ever happens.

Anyway, guys that is it that is just quick video on where I'm at with my 15, 22 sport, I'm, loving this thing.

They are excellent excellent fun.

Thanks for watching guys that is rack and load shoot safe.

See, ya, Ryan, 15, 22 few little extras on it.

I'm gonna do a separate video on the stock and charging underboss.

Watch there's.

Another video got Northwest, custom parts, scope on it as well, but it's on 0 by many shooters deal.

So let's make excuses out the way definitely on the road.

I, see the big targets because that's what I'm about big targets, hi, hi left, it's, not dumping like somewhere favor, right? Oh, everyone's.

Alright, anyway, even if there is soaked, but it's, a nice, scope actually just need to zero.

It will just run out of time today.

My yeah, call, though call set up call.
