My buddy just bought a GSG5 today and I'm so glad i got the sig.It just balances in my hand that much better than the GSG. I am jealous the GSG has an awesome set of iron sights from the factory.. We talked to the smithy and he said the S&W M&P was coming back with broken ejectors like the plague.

Took it back out to the range today since it warmed up to 7 above. I threw a POS 4x16x50 scope on it and tried for 50 yards. Bullets were all over the place, but I'm sure that was the crap scope I had on it.

Met another 522 fellow.. He had bought a S&W M&P on the 28th, blew the ejector on the 29th on the second mag he put through it and sent it off. Estimated time for return was Feb 10th, wow.... He then went and got the sig the next day and loved it. I showed him what the lil blocks in the bag were for (stock stop blocks) and where to get new mags. These things really are amazing!

We relieved our first two 5-22s yesterday. Couldn't get the folding stock on either one of them to latch open. It seems that the ambi safety selector was in the way. Sold one an hour after the guns came in and haven't received any feedback about performance yet. Of the Sigs, Ruger, Colt black gun styles, the Smith 15-22 is still my personal favorite.

If you figured out how latch the stock, please let me know. Joe

Lots off effing elbo grease... You really gotta force it on there.. dont smack it, just apply a lot of pressure.. They do get easier s you do it a couple dozen times. Getting it unfolded is a pain too. The bestoption may be to sand the nub on the foregrip unti it goes smoothly.. Oh well, I didnt buy the thing just for the stock, haha.

When I bought my Sig 522 neither I or the dealer could get the stock to lock open. We then put the rifle on a folded blanket and used body weight pressure on it and it finally locked. After doing this a few times the stock now locks with hand pressure. So if anyone here has trouble looking their stock open, try this, it works.
I live in Illinois so it's been to cold to shoot my Sig yet, but from everything I've read I'm sure it will be accurate and reliable. The 522 is definately a quality firearm and I appreciate how easy it is to field strip for cleaning. I was at a gunshow yesterday and saw one with green furniture, so apparently we now have a choice of colors. Looking forward to warmer weather so I can finally shoot my new rifle. I'll be sure to post a range report when I do.

Mag, if your not too far from Wisconsin I know a place where you can shoot indoors out to 25 yards. We get lots of folks from the Chicago area.

Default Sig 522

I just took my red dot off and put a Nikon 3x9 on mine. I shot several hundred rounds through it on Sat with two kinds of bulk ammo Winchester and Federal. No issues, great trigger and now nice optics. I love this gun.

Only misses IMO... Getting the folding stock to stay folded is a pain and they cap for the storage compartment should screw on not pull off kind of worthless IMO anyway. Still a nice accurate 22 rifle.

My next experiment is to see if I can get the flash hider off to see if my YHM Can will fit on it.
