Very accurate, very safe due to magazine drop safety, and very VERY FUN!!!! I highly recommend!!!
Yes the GSG522 Carbine is very fun to shoot! Very accurate! You can get a 110 round drum magazine for it if you really wanted. But I agree, it is very fun to shoot and it can take just about any bullets you throw into it. I'm trading mine for an Auto Ordinance M1 Carbine.

Get those big fat straws like Wendy's uses. You can load 7 rounds into each.

My Marlin 60 is my choice auto loader. But for pure accuracy, and simplistic operation, my hands down favorite .22 rifle, is my model 72 Winchester. It is a bolt action, tube fed (17 rounds) rifle, that will pop squirrils, and cans at a 100 yards all day long. (if ya can find ammo)

The Marlin 60 out of the box is far superior to the 10/22. You buy a 10/22 and throw $300 more into you have a rifle superior to the Model 60. I have a 35 year old Model 60 that is box stock with a twisted stock that will smoke any 10/22 out of the box. No scope, trigger job, no additions the Model 60 is more accurate. Who knows if a 10/22 will fire at least 100K rounds without any trouble. The model 60 has done that.

Back in the 60's I had a Savage no. 29 & a Marlin No. 29. Both were pump .22's and open sights. I loved both but they were old and had to be reworked by a gunsmith in order to be usable. I purchased a little Marlin semi-auto with a 7 round magazine & liked it also, but wanted more capacity. So, I bought a Marlin that looked just like a M1 carbine. I really liked that one; accurate &, at 10 rounds in the tubular magazine, it was super. The only thing I didn't like was the slow speed reloading of the tube, so I saved & I saved and bought a Ruger 10-22. Wow! Was I ever pleased. I saved some more a put a Weaver K-4 on it & everyone made fun of me for spending more on the scope ($34.11) than for the rifle ($32.99), at least until we went out shooting. Then, it was; can I shoot your gun while you use mine? It shot third inch clover leaf groups at 50 yards all day. Most of the newer 10-22's that I've shot can't come close to that, but, for pure fun, one can't go wrong with the Ruger.
