+1! I had a 10/22 for years. It was a fun gun and more than met my needs. However, it was stolen during a burglary and though I also have lever action and bolt action .22 rifles, I always wanted another semi-auto. A few years ago I finally decided to get another .22 semi auto rifle and after looking around decided on the S&W 15-22. I got it and I've never looked back. BTW, if you plan on buying a new 10/22 and making it "tactical", it's ultimately no more expensive than the S&W. By the time you add the cost of a new tactical style stock to the cost of the gun, you've made up the difference in price you may have initially saved.

Just to let ya know I think all the tactical frames are polymer except the colt M4 22

So leaving it in a car on a hot day before or after shooting to get a bite to eat or whatever could be an issue. I just sold a M&P .22LR after I saw nutnfancy's same on youtube begin to have a sag not much but his sights were off just from an open air hot day and the weight of a bipod on the accessory rail causing a sag in the polymer frame. :/ Im going to get a nice 10/22 and keep the wood stock if I get a archangel just incase SHTF a hot day sagging or spacing any parts on the frame wont be an issue. But the colt M4 22 is metal frame. Hope this helps

The Umerex Colt (Walther) 22 cals, the Smith and Wesson M&P 22 cals and several other military look a like 22 cals have metal frames (receivers) barrels, and trigger housings......The stocks, grips, and fore guards are polymers......There may be other polymer parts, but the basic rifles are made of metals

The Colts and S&Ws are well made and dedicated 22 cal rifles and not cobbled together........I have both and really enjoy them...

I cannot see heat as a problem any more so than with any other types of rifles......Sag???..Even if the plastic did "sag" it would not cause the receiver and barrel to deform.....None of mine have sagged ;-)

I have shoot roughly 1000 rounds through it and it makes 1 inch groups at 50 yards and 1.5 inch groups at 100. I say it is very accurate but the m&p 22 is a little more accurate I think and for the money your spending get a M&P or HK.

I'm a huge fan of the 10/22. They've all been really accurate and the kids can shoot them all day long for no more than a few dollars.

You can make them really pretty too.
