What is your favorite type of .22lr tactical rifle/carbine? Since poll options are limited I will lump some brands together.

And post pics if you want to show them off.

I have my eye on Savage TR MKII.

Cool.  Looks very 'clean', efficient and lightweight.



How's function and accuracy?

S&W M&P 15-22 is IMHO the best .22lr dedicated AR rifle out there!

I am a huge fan of S&W M&P 15 line of rifles.

I have never been disapointed yet.

i voted "sniper rifle"
there is a guy on here that has a sako quad in a manner stock and US optics scope and a suppressor. Something like $6k in the setup.
I would love a CZ varmint in a McMillan stock and throw a weaver tactical 4-20x50mm coupled with a silencerco sparrow. That would be a fun $3000.

It is very accurate, much more so than my non LW SPikes upper,  and I have yet to have a malfuncton that wasn't due to ammo, so I am very happy with it.  I didn't expect much since I didn't know much about the company, but I bought it on a whim, and I really like it.   The fact that it takes 10/22 mags is a plus as well.

I kinda like this one......

I have had great luck with my M&P 22. Mine is a very early gun and it has run very well although it doesn't like 1 or 2 types of ammo but that's not unusual with a .22 rifle. The gun has really been a boon to training my kids to shoot and especially "action" type shooting. I have added a few things and made a few mods but with one exception those were want's, not needs. For the money I don't think you can do any better in a "trainer" type rifle.

IF I had access to dedicated .22 uppers, I'd have gone with that.

Since our laws don't allow us to play Lego with our guns, I went with a complete firearm.




 





Ehm, forget the CZ 452 FS..

I'm talking about the Walther M4.

Sold it to finance a 1955 M1 Garand.

I still miss the M4, but it was for a good cause..

I voted S&W 15-22. It's reliable, light, and accurate enough to shoot minute of squirrel at 50 yards off-hand all day.


Sorry crappy cell phone pick.

GSG-5PK SBR: This gets used a lot for bunny slaying when I'm chasing them down or it's in heavily bushed areas.  Mostly close range and on the move.  Really like the BHO on last shot and load assist tabs on the magazines.  Also a fan of the HK ergonomics.

GSG-5P SBR: This gets used a lot for bunny slaying also, It's a pretty universal gun for me, red dot gives fast acquisition and kills out to 100y are pretty easy.  Same benefits as listed on the GSG-5PK.

22LR AR15 dedicated (Thompson Machine Clandestine): This was set up to shoot 60 gr Aguila SSS (1 in 9 twist barrel).  It does quarter sized groups @ 25 yards with the 60 grain ammo.  36-40 grain ammo is closer to tennis ball sized groups at 25.  As a result this is a mostly a plinker, 3 gun fun gun and close range bunny slayer with the heavy 60 grain ammo.

Sig 522 Swat Pistol SBR: I built this specifically for bunny slaying.  I also got the Gemtech G5-22 suppressor specifically for this.  I figured the 10" barrel + large volume suppressor would lend to excellent suppression & higher velocity for great bunny work.  Unfortunately I've found reliability to be a PITA with this gun.  2-5 rounds out of 25 have feeding or light primer strike issues.  I've tried 11 different types of ammo.  Some reduce the problems, but it isn't completely reliable for 2 25 round magazines in a row.  A bit disappointing.  I ended up putting the Gemtech G5-22 suppressor on the GSG5-PK since that gets used much more, & put a YHM SS Mite on the Sig 522 instead.  I've contacted sig and they want me to send it in for troubleshooting.  Hopefully it comes back running like a top.

ETA:  On the Sig 522, I was also disappointed in the rail.  The front site base screws to the barrel & holds the rail into the receiver.  As a result of this RETARDED connection techinque the rail wobbles.  No matter what I do it moves under normal use.  In my picture I have Magpul flip up sights that I have since removed as the wobbly rail makes accuracy TERRIBLE.  If I had known about this issue when I was building this up I wouldn't have bought it or spent the time to SBR it.  I'm stuck with it now due to the money and time put into it, so I put a red dot on it.  If anyone is looking for a 22LR to SBR it is NOT a Sig 522.

my fav is my Savage Mark II TR-SR b/c it's so darn accurate.  my second would be my Spikes upper i had cut down to 5.5" w/ a 7" DD Lite rail so that my suppress would look like an integral.  if i had a GSG-5pk that was SBR'd, that's probably be 2nd and the AR conversion would be third.

Got to fondle a GSG-5 yesterday. Not sure if it was post/pre lawsuit or what model it was, but it was $500 and had 'licensed by H&K' on it with the "collapsible" metal stock. It was VERY hard not to lay down the $500, but I already have a Sig 522. No real need for TWO "tactical" .22's

But yet I keep thinking about it.

Where did you get that stock?  You list it as Nordic, I checked Nordic Components website and couldn't find it.

I can tell you which one I would not recommend. The Umarex Colt M4. I purchased one and the looks are very nice, I like the feel of it.. and if you are very strapped for $, it would be a great AR substitute for getting some trigger time. It does feel like a real AR in many ways.

However, the one I have simply will not function properly. It jams and jams and jams. Can't make it through a single mag. Per their instructions, I've tried every different type of 22lr ammo my local sports store had in stock.. just to see. And it's jammed on the cheap, jammed on the expensive. I bought a new magazine to try. Same.

So I sent it back for repair. They sent it back saying it test fired properly and was fine. So Umarex did nothing to my broken rifle.

When I contacted them, they were like.. "our tech said it was fine, what would you like us to do?"

So in other words, I have a rifle that won't shoot, the company won't repair on their warranty and I won't sell to someone else because it doesn't shoot properly. It's so bad I don't even bother getting it out and taking it to the range. I don't see how I could be more dissatisfied with the purchase.

Looking back, even though the ammo is cheap, I wish I would have just put that time and $$ into my real 5.56 ARs... I probably would not purchase another tacti-kewl 22lr... of any manufacture at this point.

sig 522, it runs circles around my mp 15-22, both accuracy and reliablilty. Just today guy at the range showed up talking the old GSG 5 up like no other, after 3-4 failures per magazine he wasn't quite as vocal,our 522 just kept plinking away, another 500 rounds 0 hiccups at all.

I voted 522, but now that my Savage Mk II is all decked out in new stock, Millett TRS-1 in Buriss Xtreme low 30mm rings, and Harris, I have to vote for it. The accuracy is absolutely awesome.

And this is coming from an Anschutz owner!
