As I said in the earlier post, I have both the Colt and S&W with several magazines each and a few accessories.......I feel that both rifles are equal in quality and functionality and a good value for the prices........I have no experiance with any of the other 22 cal AR look a likes so I have no comment on them.............I am familiar with the 5.56 ARs, but sold mine and my AK 47s........
"Colt restamped Umarex" means Colt gave Umarex permission to put their name on it so they would sell more.
Colt doesn't make them.
Also, if someone wants an 22LR that is IDENTICAL to the real deal, why not just build an AR15 in 22LR?
As for the S&W not having the same controls, what's different? The 15-22s have a bolt release, an AR charging handle and the same mag release. It has ALL the same controls.
