S&W MP15-22
Remington 550-1 (since it shoots shorts, longs, and LR)
Browning SA22 (or the Norinco version...InterArms ATD .22)
H&K 416
maybe a Walther G22

(just a side note. I've never cared for Ruger. It's nothing against them, and I can't even tell you why honestly, they just don't excite me. I know many, many people love them and I have no real issue other than it's just not me.....almost like a Ford vs Chevy type mentality )
