    I found a guy selling an almost brand new one (less than 100 rounds through it) for $375.

    Deal? No Deal?

    I already have a GSG-5 for plinking... but it would be nice to have an AR style .22

    A friend of mine has an M&P15-22. Picked it up brand new at Academy for a little over $400.

    He really likes it and has had very few problems with it, and what issues he has experienced were related to ammo (cheap/old stuff).

    If you already have a GSG-5, I really don't see a reason to get another .22 "toy". I have an AR in .22 and a 10/22, but they serve two different purposes. The AR is a range toy and trainer for AR manual of arms, while the 10/22 is a bench rifle to work on proper shooting at a cheap price (essentially a trainer for my Remington 700s). A GSG5 and an M&P15-22 just seem like two guns that basically are similar toys ... the novelty for one or both will wear off.

    m&p .22 is the way to go if you're looking for a dedicated ar .22 platform. It's generally about the same cost as a dedicated .22 upper, but you get a complete firearm. It shares the controls and ergonomics of the ar so it would be good for "training" and it's not a pos umarex.
