I got a sale ad in the mail on Saturday from a local gun store (Adventure Outdoors in Atlanta area, current inventory 8,000 guns). The Sig 522 is in stock and on sale for $449. The S&W M&P 15-22 is on sale for the same price with the Colt AR-15 22 going for $549. If I remember their policy right they will do gun transfers/phone sales, but only to in state buyers.
The gun that caught my eye in the sale wasn't a 22 rifle, it was the Model 29 Nickel $679.99, in stock and factory new.
