M&P 15-22 MOE retail price

Looking for an understanding of the retail price of this firearm. I have looked at GB and things seem to be at least $100-150 above the S&W MSRP. I have seen the normal threaded barrel version for $499 at my LGS and have the understanding that the MOE would be in the $550 range.
The reason I ask is that I have my LGS looking for one for me and I want to make sure I have an understanding of the price before I jump into this one.

For $700+ I might as well get a .223/5.56 and keep shooting my 10/22. But for $550, I like the thought of a "tacticool" .22 (not to mention I have heard nothing but good things about this gun).

Thanks!

The LGS here had two last week for $550... not sure if they are still there. Last month they had the standard version, they were $459 IIRC

Awesome, thanks CMG. That's what I was thinking. If I am within $25 of that # either way, I would be happy. My LGS tends to be about $50 higher than the norm for most guns (Gen4 19's are $599, should be $549 IMHO). However, they are good people and have multiple locations within 30 min of my house. Good service as well.

Thanks again.

Many times, those things can make the higher prices worth it. Good luck.

2 yrs ago I bought mine for $529. I saw a standard non-MOE for $489 at academy.
If I was looking for one right and found it for $550 I would snap it up.

One of my most favorite shooters that goes out to the range every time. Now, my range is only about a 2 minute walk from my front door...

I couldn't find one anywhere around here!! I said "screw it", and just bought the standard one. I may add the Magpul parts myself.

That brings up a good question. What's it cost to add the stuff yourself? Is there any real advantage to the grip or stock? I was more interested in the MOE sights.

I just added Magpul sights and a Hogue grip to mine...

I bought my sights used for $60 for the set.

When I was looking for a 15-22 , it was cheaper to buy a MOE, rather than buy the std. and upgrade. The only other scenario would be to buy a std. for $425 IIRC. When i got mine it was $525 OTD.

Pulled the trigger on a non-Magpul set up. $539 OTD including a brick of .22 (federal bulk 525).

It is usually cheaper to buy it in the MOE configuration from the beginning.

We have changed my son's standard 15-22 over time. He got the Magpul rear sight off of my AR-15 when I purchased a different sight. Then we purchased a front Magpul sight for him. I recently purchased a Magpul MOE stock used for him. I like the Magpul stock better than the standard one as it locks up tight and there is no play. It fits on the tube tightly with no slop. We still have the standard grip on his, and will probably leave it.

Thanks!!! Thought it was a decent deal, plus MOE versions are very difficult to find.
Spent some time yesterday with my daughters crayons. Will have to post Picts later. Run up against my quota
