    Battle of Tactical .22LRs

    I am noticing many more tactical .22lrs lately and am considering checking one out. So far I have the following and I am sure there are others. Can anyone add to the list. Of these, which would you pick? My main concern is that it should be reliable, I don't want to worry about ammo when it comes to a fun plinking rifle. I just want to shoot whatever I can get, no excuses.

    - Ruger SR22
    - Keltec SU22
    - SW M&P15-22
    - Sig 522
    - GSG-5

    manufactured by Walther for Colt and imported by Umarex.

    Out of the list, I think I'd go with the Ruger SR22.

    I have a Rhineland Arms .22, but I don't think they make them any more. AR-15 trigger, HK G-3 stock, their action and barrel. It uses 10-22 mags, and you tell them what length and diameter barrel you want.

    I'd go with the Sig 522, but I'm biased. I have never had problems with ANY of the Sigs I own, and would trust them implicitly. I'd also like to have a lot more of them

    I have one of the GSG-5s & it is a lot of fun!

    I've seen the others, but haven't shot them. Colt also is making one.

    The Ruger SR 22 is just a 10/22 inside a stock for a lot of money.

    What's everyone think of the Ruger Tactical Target? I think a reliable platform with spare parts everywhere. Just no rails, lights, lasers, vertical grips or bayonet lugs. Looks like a pretty good squirrel getter though.

    Do you have any inclination to use it as an AR platform trainer? If so, you can eliminate some from the list. The only ones that match AR ergos are the S&W, the Colt, and various AR conversions. Which is another idea, if you have an AR you could get a conversion kit or upper.

    They all seem nice. A local GS owner I talked to has a GSG-5 and say his is a lot of fun but he has to make sure he feeds it hi-velocity ammo or it tends to jam and be less accurate.

    Here is a good comparison between the SW and COLT:

    my friend bought a GSG at a local gun show, thing is a piece of junk. I dunno what kind of ammo it needs, but everything we try it jams all the time.
