I decided to take the plunge inspite of mixed reviews. I "needed" to replace a 10-22 that was recently stolen (I will likely get another 10-22 also inthe near future).
The G-22 was just too appealing. No one I know has ever even seen one so being the first to own one is a plus to me. I MUST be the out in front in the arms race.
I hope to get some range time this weekend to zero the red dot and give her a whirl.
I am a bit surprised there are not more aftermarket accessories available. Fake cans and 13 round mag followers are about it. Vertical forward grips for AR's work. Light attachements for picatinney rails are available. Any sighting system that is rail mounted will work. Factory lasers (ugh!), but little in the way of dedicated G-22 accessories like extended mags or flash hiders. If anyone knows of a source of such add ons, PLEASE let me know.
In life, strive to take the high road....It offers a better field of fire.
