I'm fairly certain it's only able to be .22lr.

On a .22 it should be non existent.

The 22lr cartridge from a rifle is as KyTowboater said, non-existent.

If you are interested in something similar, an AR15 is a 5.56x45, but can be easily converted to 22lr. This will be more expensive though.

My suggestion? A bolt action 22lr for your first firearm. Semi auto's and high capacity mags have a tendency to promote poor accuracy in someone new to the game.

As stated a bolt action .22lr would be a VG place to start. Target shooting and semi autos rarely go together.

I've got the gsg5 version really reliable, great with cci minimags. Hk make the newer 522 version now more fitted out as standard. I am sure there are many other versions over there.

Sorry i can't find any MOE deals and seems no one has it.

I never heard anyone replaced the stock parts due to broken or sort ever. It's a very well made and durable gun. Accessories for it are easy to find too.

Here's mine,
Where on earth did you get that flash hider? I needs it! Rjnewukmcsqr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
