.22lr tactical rifle
Looking for a tactical .22 lr rifle I have narrowed it down to Remington 597 vtr with collapsing stock or colt mp4 ops model. Any suggestions?

I've had an M4 OPS for two years. Virtually impossible to tell from a genuine AR by sight, weight or feel. Shoots great, ammo PICKY. The gun is made by Walther of Germany, excellent quality with a TIGHT match chamber. If the ammo brand is loosely spec'd when manufactured it will cause some failures to feed, fire or eject. After 600-800 rounds they smooth out nicely. Mine likes Federal bulk-pak. Standard AR trigger assemblies and breakdown procedures don't apply with this arm. It's design is totally proprietary by Walther. If you can get around the fact it's not a true AR, it's a nice little rifle. The standard 1/2X28 barrel thread must be gotten by use of a thread adapter, easily available. The stock body is mil-spec, but the tube itself is proprietary. A standard AR grip will work by drilling the holes out slightly. The accessory rails are standard. The dust cover will accept a standard AR unit. The forward assist is for looks and the safety selector is 180 degrees instead of 90. The newly produced ones may have changed safeties. The magazines are proprietary and Black Dog mags won't work. The mags are very easy to load and are reliable.

I bought the Remington 597 quad 4 a few months ago and love it. We added a bipod and a 3x9 scope. It is very accurate and the price at Cabela's in Dundee MI. was $ 299. and it came with the collapsible stock

So, what makes a .22lr tactical? Configuration, color, Stupid crap that adds weight? If I can buy a .22 auto compared to a tactical that is supposed to look like a battle carbine, but costs $100.00..300.00 more, I'll stick with the plain .22. If you want a battle rifle, buy one! You can slap lipstick on a pig, you get a pig w/ the runs. Nothing works quite right.

I have a DPMS lo pro 16, my son loved it so I'm thinking of getting him something cheaper! I'm leaning toward 597 vtr. By the way this is my pig. .223! At 100 yds

You are missing out if you are not including the S&W in there.

Which is most accurate! Even .22 lr accuracy is the most important. All my rifles are heavy barrel. Is the s&w accurate and if so what loads?

Two more recommendations:

S&W M&P 15-22:

Sig 522:

Both are Excellent and Accurate Rifles! They love Win 555 36gr 22LR Ammo. No FTE's/FTL's on either one to date..... Knock-On-Wood!

If you have an AR, why not get a dedicated .22 upper for it?

Gun is very accurate, don't want to screw with. The .22 tactical is for my son
