UPDATE:

In Project Appleseed, student safety is paramount.  We recognize and appreciate the effort that Smith & Wesson has made with their M&P 15-22 safety alert.  The M&P 15-22 rifles will again be allowed for use at Project Appleseed clinics, effective August 1st, 2021.  We urge every 15-22 owner to read and comply with the instructions contained in the following links before attending a Project Appleseed rifle clinic:

S&W has graciously sent us Bolt Inspection Gauges for the M&P 15-22 and we are issuing them to event leaders in the field.  Project Appleseed will strive to have a Bolt Inspection Gauge available for 15-22 owners to check their bolts at our clinics.  If a rifle fails the gauge test, we will offer a loaner rifle where legal & available.

 

I'm not a 15-22 owner myself, but I know people that have them seem to love them.

 

EDIT: As background, if anyone doesn't know but wants to, the 15-22 could experience runaway with out-of-battery discharges, resulting in shell fragments ejected out the port. After several reports of such incidents at Appleseed sessions, Appleseed banned 15-22s from use.
