AR .22 cal v/s standard .22 cal rifle
 
Been looking at the AR style 22 cal. rifles and they really look cool but I'm wondering if there is any advantage or disadvantage to them. I have a couple of Savage tube fed models that shoot great and are very accurate. I see that the price of these AR style rifles can get pretty high also.

well if you own an AR already it s good to have an AR15-22 since its a cheap trainer. You get to practice on the exact platform for $.30-$.40 cents less per trigger pull. It
is also a good platform for lots of different add-ons like lights, optics, etc. And from what I've heard, they are quite reliable and accurate. So it's a triple threat.

I think the 15-22 is the new benchmark. It can also take some AR upgrades, and is a natural suppressor host. Different uppers and lowers can be mixed and matched. The only reason to choose a 10/22 or a Savage is one's love for traditional designs, or a state ban.

Me personally im not a fan of ar in 22lr i prefer my 22 be wood and steel and not really fancy. I can see why people like them with all the stuff you can put on them but there just not my cup of tea

A 10/22 with Ruger's rotary magazine is the most reliable semi-automatic .22 LR rifle I know of.

I dont see 22s getting any easier to find with this liar-in-chief we have in the near future, an auto would just cost an arm and a leg to shoot, while the bolt would still be under control. Id get a bolt

The S&W 15-22 is a cinch to clean and it is a full take down by pulling 2 pins. Mags are reasonable and smaller stature shooters love them for the adjustable stock. My wife loves hers. I have it set up with a Bushnell TRS 25 and flip down sights. It has been extremely reliable. It actually ate some rounds the 10-22 would not eat. The only time it jammed was when I was shooting Velocitors. Not enough recoil spring for the hot load. It is a nice little rifle and fun to shoot but I am still shooting an older 10-22 also with a TRS 25. I really like that sight. If I ran into a bargain on a 15-22, I might get one for myself. The 22lr I have been playing with lately is a Savage FVSR bolt action.

I have a Colt AR 15 22lr and a Colt 6920 223 and a Rock River AR 15 in 223. My son shoots the Colt 22lr and yes, it is a great training tool. Cheaper, same weight and structure, kills squirrels just as dead. I have several Ruger 10/22s and a mini 14. Same principal.

Even the 22 Magnums got scarce now. Bolt action makes sense in 22LR because you can shoot subsonics and use a suppressor to its full potential.

The semi's will shoot sub sonic fine with a suppressor. It adds a little back pressure to the lighter loads.
