I looked at one of the colt m4's in a gun store the other day and really liked it. Went back 2 days later to get it and it was gone.

You can buy a .22 upper to fit your AR lower and "convert" it back and forth.:claphands::claphands::claphands:

It would make a cool squirrel gun!:woot:

I like the looks of the Ruger SR-22. The action is the same as the 10/22, but its built in an AR frame.

Side note on the colt(which is more expensive), the charging handle is fake and just for looks. The Smith totally functions like a real AR and also if you want any drop in trigger for an AR will work in it if you want a match trigger (I have no problem with the stock one) and any other AR accessories will go right on.

I like the looks of mine with a carry handle sight.

I thought about that, but was wondering if the accuracy would be the same as a dedicated .22 AR? :shrug:

FYI ~ there's an article & review of 8 different "tactical rimfire's" in the January issue of Shooting Illustrated (which really peaked my interest in buying one).

The accuracy thing concerned me too.

And, it was an excuse to get another whole gun instead of a barrel or conversion for what I already have. :D

What does their review say? Did they pick a top choice?[/rquote]

The author stated that he had no intention of picking the best, because they are all very different.

BUT...he did state that the Ruger SR-22 was the most accurate, with the Colt M4 (Umarex USA) coming in a close second (and ran flawlessly).

FYI ~ the Ruger SR-22 uses any factory or after-market 10//22 magazines.

The Colt M4 is manufactured by Walther, and imported by Umarex USA under the Colt trademark.

The one I'm interested in (S&W M&P15-22) wasn't available for a review :mad2: ). Given S&W's association with Walther, you might expect this to be another version of the Colt M4 Walther manufactures for Umarex USA...well, it's not. It is a S&W engineered design, built in the U.S.A., with a working bolt catch, and polymer upper & lower receivers.

Also, the barrels for the M&P15-22 are made by Thompson Center.
