    If you're referring the the likes of the Colt/Umarex and the S&W, the manufacturing costs are quite different. The receivers are plastic in the .22s and that wouldn't hold up to .223, at least not the upper receiver. The blowback operating system is simpler with fewer parts. And they're not built to take the same punishment.

    Pricing for every product and service is based on what the offeror believes the market will bear.

    It has been this way since forever.

    Other considerations inclusive such as design, material and production costs, the bottom line is that only a small minority of persons will pay .223 dollars for a gun as chambered in .22.
    Oppositely a gun chambered in .223 could be produced at .22 dollar value but the resulting product quality would suffer.

    Have someone, anyone, though mention publicly that either .22 or .223 gun is thought to be 'banned' and quicker than you can say PROFIT!, the prices for either and both have and would increase.

    The only disadvantage is it lacks a flash hider (mostly for looks).
    I have threaded several already. Some people like the Smith better than the Colt but they dont like the fact that it does not have a threaded barrel.

    I built a mandrel so that I can take the top half off,set it up and thread it in the lathe, 1/2-28 threads to fit the standard flashider.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    I avoided the whole Colt vs. S&W boondoggle and just built my own .22 AR rifle. Spikes Tactical has everything you need or want to build any AR platform rifle in any caliber. It is a real AR, not just a look-a-like masquerading as one. If I want to stick a different upper on it I can turn it into a 5.56 or 6.8 in about 1 minute. It is a little costlier but worth every penny.

    Mrs. Santa ordered me a Wilson Combat TTU drop-in trigger and a new Mueller Scope so on Dec 26th it'll look a little different.

    Here is a photo of my rifle. I spec'd it with a Lothar-Walther match barrel and Magpul furniture. I love this rifle.

    My newest acquisition :



    S&W M&P 15/22

    I've been wanting a plinker, I also wanted to get something I could pass on to my daughter when she gets older, and after some time holding and checking up information, I decided to go with the smith. I put $150 down on it, and will pick it up before the end of next month (luck withstanding.)

    Today was a good day. 

    You can get them for $17.96 per unit from Smith & Wesson M&P 15-22 25rd Magazine. I picked up 8 direct from S&W last week when they were running a sale. However sale is off so cheapest right now that I can find is Botach Tactical.
    To all you current and former military ... thank you for your service! Let no one forget that the sacrifices you have made allow us the freedoms we enjoy.

    I bought a S&W's last August for $450 (includes tax) and love it. The only real complaint I've had is the difficulty in finding mags for it. I ordered two magazines for my 15-22 from S&W in September and FINALLY got the notice a few days ago my order had been shipped from the factory.

    Has it been released yet? Last I heard it was still in firearms limbo...

    Thanks, I thought it was close to being out, if not out already. Any idea of the timeframe and an approximate street cost?
