[QUOTE=shipwreck;538491]The Sig 522 interests me as well....
From what I have seen on various forums - you do not want the Colt model. Its not even made by colt - it's a Umarex gun... The AIRGUN copany that owns Walther. Walther fans know that there are REAl Walthers (PPS, P99) and the airgun Umarex made walthers (the 22 caliber models). Well I guess from this post you don't like the Colt/Umarex .22? Evidently your dislike doesn't come from actually OWNING one, or ACTUALLY having shot one? It seems funny that one guy thinks he's buying a real AR and gets pissed when he finds out it's a .22 rifle of a proprietary design made to look like the Colt. Then the PARROTS start up repeating the half-baked claims of converted airsoft guns. These Umarex/Colt weapons are ALL produced by WALTHER of Germany in their arms plant. Umarex happens to be the PARENT company of Walther. Umarex has licences from Colt Industries, Hk, and several others. The Colt/Umarex had its teething problems, The S&W certainly did, as does most every arm you could name at the start of production. I own the Colt/Umarex M4, have had it for 2 years. Thousands of rounds out of it, a very good arm FOR WHAT IT IS- a FUN PLINKER that LOOKS like an AR. Anybody buying a .22 should make certain what they are getting- a rimfire plinker that I certainly wouldn't depend on for home defense. I also own a S&W 15/22 Pistol that is supposedly far superior to the Colt/Umarex. They both are NECK AND NECK with each other. One NOT superior to the other. I also own a 10/22 Ruger rifle, NOT the most dependable .22 in my locker, It has developed extractor problems and has ALWAYS been ammo sensitive. My Henry is a nice little rifle, but the black coating, not bluing has peeled since day one. The Sig is currently having teething problems with the ''c'' clip bending and coming unattached. So rice923 I'm NOT trying to rain on your parade, Just be aware that ANY arm you mention or buy will have its detractors, most never having owned or fired one. Find what YOU like and buy it. Best of Luck!
