My favorite 22 of all is a High Standard Field King which I have owned since I was 14 yrs. old.
The trigger breaks like an icicle at about 2 1/2 pounds and is still amazingly accurate and will digest most any LR ammo.
I am in the market for a good tactical 22 rifle any opinion is appreciated.

I know its new to my vocabulary but I was attempting to differentiate between the standard sporting/plinker to something with a bit more capacity and reliability.

I've fired many Marlin, model 60's and never had any problems with any of them concerning accuracy, jamming or longevity. I only had jamming issues if the rifle had loose screws (which you should check for on a routine basis with any rifle), was super dirty and/or needed oil, or if the ammo was dinged-up. I've found them to be more reliable and more durable than any other 22 rifle I've used.

I also own a Marlin, model 99 M1, semi-automatic rim-fire and I've had the same consistent results of excellence in its performance - be sure to use only 22 LR ammunition. However, I will admit all of the model 60's I've used and the model 99 M1 were all over 30 years old. The stocks on mine are all hardwood and actual walnut, not just walnut finished. Just like every other manufactured product that has been around for many years, better and more solid materials were used because the older ones were built to last, and also they were built with craftsmanship and integrity.

So you want a tactical (testical .22?) .22...

Colt and some of the other AR rifle builders make an AR-15 style rifle in .22 LR...

Go for it...

I think the S&W M&P15-22 would be a good candidate for a "tactical" 22.

For the price it might be better than a Ruger 10/22... you can add a new stock to a 10/22, add rails and a bull barrel, compensator (as if) and extended mags, but your end price will be well over the $500 of the S&W. From what I've seen, the S&W is a reliable feeder. A lot of 22 semiauto carbines have feeding problems.

If you like bullpups, the 10/22 with a dixie consolidated bullpup conversion is the only way to go. I've been salivating over one of those for a while now. J Bunting Machine makes a better one but it's three times the cost and it has a waiting list.

+1.
I've had mine for almost two years (early model w/o the flash suppressor) and love it. The only thing I wish S&W would change is that the gun was also offered in 22WMR.
