Default Your opinion: Best Tactical .22

There are many .22's out there to choose from. There are 4 tactical options that are all very good, but which would you prefer?
Ruger 10/22 with tapco stock, 25rd mag, flash hider: 320$
Kel-Tec SU-22 Factory Configuration: 320$

S&W M&P 15-22 Factory Configuration: 400$
Sig 522 Factory Configuration: 400$

Remember: each has good sights, but only the 10/22 and S&W have a lot of rail options.

Personally, i would either want a 10/22 or the M&P 15-22.

If you have a gun you think should be on this list feel free to post it. Also, if you have pics of your .22 feel free to post them!

The only "tactical" .22 I've ever heard of was a "hush puppy" that special forces use to silently quiet dogs. It's a silenced Ruger Mark series.

What are you wanting a "tactical" .22 for?? Squirrel hunting? You could use a much cheaper $140 Mossberg .22 for that...

If you're wanting one for "tactical missions", I'd consider something other than a .22LR... jussayin'.

well, i silenced .22 is the best assassination weapon but thats not what i want it for. i want one for a run and gun weapon. or, if a meth-head is breaking in, and thats all i have nearby, a flash hider makes any gun look like a much bigger caliber. i just want to see what other people prefer. i am a small shooter so i'll probably get the 10/22 tapco because of the stock.

Have you checked out the Mossberg? It's based on the Plinkster 702 action, covered in Tactical plastic. They are going for ~$250

The " Hush Puppy " used by The Navy Seals in Vietnam was actually a S&W Model 39.

dont get me wrong- mossberg makes great shotguns, but their .22's aren't the best.

Back in the day, Mossberg made some of the best shooting rimfires. I would agree there are much better .22's than the 702 Plinkster of today. However a Tactical style .22 is really only used for plinking anyway. Why spend $400 on a .22 auto loader with a plastic AR shell? Mossberg's offering is a bargain at $250. It has a quad rail forend, 25 round mag, adjustable stock....

I have a M&P 15-22 and I couldn't be happier with it. It has a full picatinny quad rail from the removable rear sight up to the removable front sight which allows all the room in the world for accessories. It has a functioning bolt release, unlike the ruger and comes with a 25 rnd magazine. I have put around 2000 rnds through it and it only seems to fire better the more I fire it. You can't find a better tactical .22 rifle.

yes, but how much does it cost compared to the 10/22 hmm? you could have a 10/22 with all the works for the base price of the M&P 22

I personally own a Ruger 10/22. I love all of the different add-on accessories, different magazines, and the reliability that it has to fire even when absolutely filthy! It's also deadly accurate, at least for me, and so I wouldn't go with anything else.
