    Sorry, I can't get my eyes off the selector switch. But from all outward appearances, that looks like an awesome rifle you've got there! Nice pic!

    Good look'en rifle and nice collection of pistols. I have a P22 myself and despite the negative press mine has been reliable and fun. Would love to get a surpressor for it!

    Now for an EOtech or scope?

    Nice so what brand of upper is it? Have you picked out a rear sight yet?

    How's this for an oddball QC error? I got this mag catch part in my DPMS parts kit that was manufactured backwards. I thought I was doing something wrong until I figured out the problem.

    It is a generic upper from Sherluk. No rear sight choice yet. Any suggestions? I would love an Eotech but finances are a bit tight going into Christmas. My optics money went into a S&W Stainless Model 640 for the lil' woman.

    My P22 has been 100% with half-way decent ammo. If I go bare bone cheap it doesn't cycle properly but as long as I use Walmart Federal Value Pack 550's or a similar type it works like a dream.

    Well, it wasn't so much that, but sort of liking the burst or auto mode. Wish my selector switch pointed back at me when I shoot mine.

    After looking again myself, I thought that was what you meant. I wish mine did too. I really couldn't afford to feed her then though.

    No. Just a standard run-of-the-mill semi-auto rifle. The lower is from Spikes Tactical. I think they all come like that. The FCG is a DPMS. All went together like it was made in the same factory by the same guy. Butter.
