    Perhaps, but then again other .22 AR clones have been developed. For example, the Tippman M4-22 is superior to the S&W in every way, and without the safety issue. Maybe if S&W had jumped on the issue when it became known instead of waiting 3 years to address it things would be different. https://www.smith-wesson.com/mp15-22...r-safety-alert

    I had wanted to get my son a Smith MP-15, but did not because of their issue and lack of willingness to address it.

    He prefers the Savage bolt action anyways, it's what he'll be qualifying with in Scouts.

    To be fair vehicles go well beyond that before issues are raised and recalls announced. Does appleseed plan to continue to punish owners of this firearm now that a fix has been issued?

    Interesting how you use "to be fair" and "punish" together like that. Project Appleseed banned the M&P 15-22s to protect our unpaid volunteer instructors and our non-profit organization from injury liability.

    An announcement from Project Appleseed:

    We are preparing to welcome back the Smith & Wesson M&P 15-22 rifles at Project Appleseed clinics, effective August 1st, 2021.

    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:
    https://www.smith-wesson.com/sites/d...ert_030619.pdf
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UJO0gJRmc_c

    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.
