    <!-- / icon and title --><!-- message --><!-- BEGIN TEMPLATE: ad_showthread_firstpost_start --><!-- END TEMPLATE: ad_showthread_firstpost_start -->I've been putting off customizing my 10/22's too much, with the hopes that one day Ruger would come out with a new 22lr AR style rifle. That day has finally come! :D

    For 6 bux and a quarter, I can wait. 10/22s are bad enough. (I want one!!)

    That's the MSRP, if you are buying at that price, you are paying too much. The range that I work at will sell them (none available with our dist at this time) for about $450.00. Still, that is more than a 10/22, until you mod the hell out of it.

    For $450 it is not to bad and would consider it. Time for Beta to design a mag for it, lets say a 300 rounder!!!

    I think Colt has an AR 22 out. Less than $650 IIRC.

    Yes, they do, the shop I work at sells them for $500 and up, depending on the configuration.

    I thought about getting one, but then decided I would be better off with a conversion kit for one of my AR's

    Darn straight, right now at Tactical Innovations, you can get a stainless steel Ceiner type conversion device for $125 without the magazines. I'd get a few Black Dog Machine magazines from another source (cheaper) and be done with it.

    I've used my Ceiner conversion kit for years now, with and without a suppressor attached, and had little problem with it's reliability. Sure, it is a .22lr, you will get a few rounds of every type of ammunition that won't work, or even whole brands (Federal bulk packs suck) that won't fire semi-auto.

    Good ammunition for any rimfire semiauto is essential to it's function.

    If Ruger had put on a "real" magazine instead of reusing the ol' 10/22's I'd buy one.

    As it is my old 10/22 with a Tapco stock and red-dot site is WAY cheaper and still shoots/looks Tac-T-kool ~;-)

    Question -- has anyone tried the SR-22 yet? I'm curious about the trigger; did they add a "match" trigger, or is it the standard 7 or 8 lb pull?

    I'm looking to upgrade the trigger on my 10/22, which I've got to say is pretty bad. Here's the upgrade I'm looking at (I don't know the merchant or the mfr). Suggestions are highly sought after :^) :

    Triger pull on SR 22

    On my rifle it is 5 pounds. Check out the March issue of Gun World. It has a story on the SR 22 and it will answer about every question you have on the SR 22.

    I have a Tactical Solutions AR-22 upper on a Rock River national match lower, and it is definitely fun to shoot. I am not exactly sure how practical it is though.

    This is JMHO....

    I really don't like my Fudd guns and tactical guns interbreeding. I would never use a .22 in a defense situation by choice. Although it would work in a pinch.... I would much rather keep my .22 light and have a defensive gun slung. Turning it into a heavier "tacticool" gun interferes with that. I am sure that there is some training value from a tactical-type .22. Afterall, any shooting is better than no shooting. It is not good, however, for tactical marksmanship. The reason why.... because .22LR has a infinitely different recoil than a hot XM193 5.56 load. The training with the .22LR cannot replicate tactical training with 5.56. Therefore, I much prefer to keep my .22s Fudd like in appearance and light for hunting. They can also be used in that configuration for basic marksman**** training.

    I am not against a folding stock, like the well made Butler Creek stocks or otherwise, to reduce the overall size. They have a functional purpose. I am not terribly against larger magazines as long as the don't interfere with handling.

    I'd much rather run into hikers on the trail or or bicyclers with my mdl 17 in a flap hip holster or a slung stock 10/22 Than a tactcal sling/ dressed up , "evil, black rifle" to set their cellphones into action. and I find the local sheriffs parked next to my truck at the trailhead when I emerge...

    Its legal so To each his own..
