I handled/fondled one just a few days ago and it empresses me much more then the M4 platform examples. My local shop has both the black and green furniture variants and I can't decided between the two. The overall feeling of quality, forum and function is better then what I expected and now I need to decide what sort of optic to mount. I personally think it is a perfect platform for a red dot setup and will most likely go the extra mile and pick something up I can mount on other rifles without sacrificing quality.

I held a 522 SWAT model Saturday afternoon. Very nice gun, but no sights included and it did seem a little heavy for a .22lr. If the M&P 15-22 I had on layaway there was for me and not for my kid, I seriously would have considered switching my money over to the Sig. If for no other reason, just to own a limited edition firearm for once. (It's stamped "1 of 2000" on the left side of the reciever.)

I have a 522 Classic. One of my new favorites.
I sold an AR57 upper to buy it - that was fun too but just too expensive for plinking.
The 522 is accurate for a semi auto clone rifle. I'll have no problem hunting squirrels with it, even with the Bushnell 1x32 scope I bought.
It is a lot of fun, well built, dismantles easily for cleaning. I love the folding stock on it. It takes Black Dog mags which are $19 shipped from 44mag.com.
The best part is I can shoot hundreds of rounds for under $10!
I held one at Gander Mtn the other day. It was $449. Nothing wrong with it I guess, just wasn't quite as nice as I expected.
Still this, or a Saiga will be my next!
