The 'Colt' is a glorified airsoft gun, as stated above. Already having warranty issues with them, as Umarex is a bit overwhelmed and Colt is not standing by the product that bears their name.

The M&P is light years better, but, as mentioned above, its getting a reputation for puking extractors. If you pick one up, might as well have a spring, plunger, and extractor in your 'Oh, Shyt' kit. Keep the extractor clean and well lubed, as most of the ones I've seen come back are dry and dirty; extractors tend to walk on most autoloading .22LRs if they're dry. M&P advantages? Any AR trigger will drop in, and sights, lights, and any other tacticool stuff you can hang on your AR will hang on it.

Personally, I think a gussied-up 10/22 is the way to go, as they're proven, reliable, and have TONS of parts you can use on the one you build. I'm just partial, though.
