After a discussion with my daughter, we finally decided to sell the GSG 522. It went pretty quick locally. Now she is pretty excited about what she will "upgrade" to. I'm afraid it's going to be more than the $350 I got for the GSG. I am going to stick with .22 LR for her. Likely a 10/22.

Yeah, you won't go wrong with the 10/22.
I will say, stick with the standards. I got the 'AR' style 10/22 and...I've had nothing but trouble. I'm still not sure if it is a break-in issue, cheap ammo issue, or aftermarket extended magazine issue, but it's constantly, bang, jam, bang, fail to feed, bang, jam, jam, jam, bang, FTF, bang, dammit, FTF, jam, jam, bang. New mag. Bang, FTF, jam, jam, bang, repeat.
I bought a box of really good ammo for it and my boys found it before I felt up to testing it. It was gone before I realized they had got into it.

Let me guess. You got the Ciener conversion or somethin to the sort...

I don't want to comment on .22 rifles/pistols, because I'll inevitably offend someone....

I'll just say M&P AR15-22's are one of the only semi-auto .22's I'd recommend to anyone. :thumb:

I hope that helps someone out on their decision-making :)

Actually, I'd like to know the reasoning behind that, I've never had problem with the 10/22. Just curious.

Really? My 10/22 runs like a champ. Normally I clean my guns after every outing, whether it's 5 shots or 500 however... I ran about 1000 rounds through the Ruger without cleaning it to see what would happen - not a single failure.

Jmz5, I'm expecting a Kidd 18" threaded barrel. Would you recommend the spectre? And what recomendations might you have for the paper work on same. Thanks.

Lol.

I was out of it last night, (4am) misspoke. My fault.

10/22's are clearly awesome, and there are really cool conversions from them from ProMag (Archangel, G36 clone, Halo clone, etc.) that I've used.



I've shot this exact gun. It's great.

For the price, they cannot be beat. Super accurate.

My only issues with 10/22's are bolt bounce and that 15-22's are more ergonomic, are more efficient to rapidly clear jams with (important to any 10/22 platform. You do not have to switch hands if you're right-handed, and magazine release is more available for location and actuation), and they have 35 round magazines available, whereas 10/22's did not use to have comparative capacity (now they do, somewhat).

You guys know that I prefer to own one platform per one application; so selective guidelines are super stringent when I look and critique a platform. Just because I view M&P 15-22's in a raised regard doesn't mean I think 10/22s aren't great. They are. Who cares what I think, anyway!

Like I said, I completely misspoke :facepalm: . I love Rugers; their Mk series and 10/22s are awesome.

Lol, Blue, you're allowed to have an opinion (which I happen to completely respect BTW). I just wanted to know your reasoning, that's all. Now we all know. :D

No, this is a factory SR22. Like I said, I dunno if it's because we tried to run cheap ammo, or if it's the aftermarket extgended 20 round mags or if we happened to get a lemon.
I've cleaned this thing religiously. Lubed it well and still get <profanity> performance.

OH DANG! You got one of the new SR22s?! The pistol!

Aw man, it jams? What the heck :(

The only .22 ammo to stay away from is Remington. Everything else should run, fine. Fine, used in the context of .22LR; meaning that it should fire at a success rate of 90% or higher.

My guess is it's the aftermarket magazine. I've heard all sorts of complaints about them from many people. The factory BX-25 mags are a little more pricey, but they work.

How does it feed with the 10 round mag that came with the gun?

**edit** I stand corrected. You are correct Jeff. It is a 10 round magazine. **edit**
I hate to admit, I've never used it...

If you like a project rifle that can bleed your wallet dry, buy the lowly 10-22. Find the Kidd website and start ordering "things". Buy a new stock. Purchase new optics. Shoot it a lot. With a new barrel and a Kidd two-stage trigger it will embarrass you and the shooter next to you with the $2000 Anshutz. Of course, by then, you'll be shooting about a $1000 10-22. :facepalm:

WRONG.

BEST PRACTICAL .22 BOLT ACTION RIFLE THAT ISN'T A OVERPRICED CUSTOM MATCH GUN IS A

CZ..

aw. darn.

honestly, even if you compare apples to oranges and put the CZ against the almighty 10/22; I'd take the CZ, anyday.

But can we just let it lie, already? How much more do I have to be CZ tormented, on the only forum I frequent.

Sigh.
