Mr. Plinkster
 
my friend is looking for a .22 rifle.
he has narrowed it down to two rifles (SO FAR)
the gsg-5 (mp5 type .22) and the M&P 15-22 (AR variant in .22)
he says he's really leaning towards the M&P 15-22 but wants to make sure of everything. so that's where you guys come in.

are these pretty good choices for a guy who's shot plenty of calibers and plenty of firearms? and are there even better rifles than these that you can get in the U.S.?

he doesnt have a budget that i know of. but lets try to keep it reasonable.
he's looking for the one's eh...around 500-600 dollars. maybe less. maybe more.

your turn.

I'd personally pick the M&P. However, the best .22 I have ever come across is the Winchester Model 52. That bastard is literally more accurate than my AR

Zulu Two Six 01-21-2010 03:02 AM

oh yeah..forgot to add.
no bolt actions. he hates em.
he wants semi

Ruger 10/22s are inexpensive, good .22s to have.I had one with fiber optic sights and it worked well. Do they want something old school like that, or are they leaning more toward a modern .22 clone of a tacticool design like you mentioned?

S&Wshooter 01-21-2010 03:22 AM

Why doesn't he just flip a coin?

Zulu Two Six 01-21-2010 01:24 PM

well, i dont think he wants a ruger 10/22. i metioned it to him and told him it was a common .22

he said he's going for the modern look.

Excalibur 01-21-2010 05:44 PM

Well depends on if he has the money. How much can he afford?

S&Wshooter 01-21-2010 08:53 PM

They both sound like pretty good choices

k9870 01-21-2010 09:49 PM

Is the smith an actual ar-15 lower and upper or a clone? If its a real lower id say get that since he can build off it in the fututre, more versatile.

Zulu Two Six 01-21-2010 10:06 PM

yeah...he doesnt have a budget.
and he is leaning towards the AR

S&Wshooter 01-21-2010 11:30 PM

Then he should buy the AR

Zulu Two Six 01-22-2010 12:23 AM

alright, it is decided. i will keep you posted for more

S&Wshooter 01-22-2010 12:29 AM

Hopefully he will be completely satisfied with his choice

ManiacallyChallenged 01-24-2010 09:39 PM

AR. Just because of potential training purposes.
It is reasonable to think that one day he may own a real AR, but H&K will probably never let him own a real MP5. :D

Excalibur 01-25-2010 04:09 AM

Well the point of having the .22LR MP5 clone is BECAUSE he cant get a real one.

Zulu Two Six 03-23-2010 12:24 PM

well......im sorry to say he didnt get the .22
HE GOT A FRICKIN AK47!
he doesnt quite know anything about it other than it's an AK-47 and it fires 7.62mm rounds.
so he's sending me some pics either today or tomorrow.
but he got it at a gun show for 5 hundred something.
