Wow, that actually looks like an airsoft toy.


When airsoft looks more realistic than your 22LR firearm, you might wanna rethink a bit.

I dunno, just sayin' I guess.
$500 is a lot for what that looks like.

My TacSol dedicated 22lr on a CavArms lower is probably my most used gun right now.

The plus side is that I can actually afford to shoot it on a regular basis and it let's me train with the AR platform.

Total build price was only $650 so not much more than the S&W but feels better made.

The M&P 15-22
 is a blast to shoot and very light on the wallet. I love mine.

I put a magazine through a friend's the other day. 100% reliable, and very accurate. He's got about 2,000 rounds through it and has had no problems.

Shooting stuff is fun.

I have one, and it is eating up the federal value packs. I've had a 10/22 for years and this one is approaching the 10/22 in round count.

The magazines are a bit of a pain to load, and the rifle is a bit light. It is not the most accurate .22 out there. But it is FUN, and a good approximation of an AR for muscle memory training.

I REALLY wish they had brought this out as a true upper, but the receiver is sized differently and it will not go on a AR lower.

I have never really understood the attraction of the .22 AR look-a-likes when reliable, dedicated rimfire uppers are available and predate the 'toys'.

Real lower and upper >>>>>> airsoft toy that shoots .22LR

Form follows function. If you shoot one of those you'll be pulin out your wallet. You can use all normal AR furniture, swap out the trigger with any AR aftermarket trigger, all controls work just like a real AR. IMO its the best .22 on the market...

No a Spikes decicated upper is the best .22 AR on the market.

Same as you can with a real .22 upper. This just gives people something else to buy which is not a bad thing.

I like this better though.



or my tier 7 spikes barreled and bolt ar.

Another nearby .22 rifle was built by Walther as what I’d call a tactical carbine. From what I could see it appeared to be built on a pistol frame with a longer barrel and a black synthetic stock that resembled a tactical carbine carbine. Nobody in the store had any report for this gun.

My Tac Sol .22 upper is awesome. My Spikes .22LR MRP conversion, not so much. YMMV

My next AR will be a 22lr to have fun around the house with. No doubt about it. Only thing in front of it is a .45 pistol. Don't have anything chambered in that right now.

I've had one for around a year. Great little gun, same size as an AR but lighter. My wife is who we actually got it for, but I like to shoot it every chance I get. As was already said, a fun little gun. Mine is accurate as hell too.
It is what it is....
