    I own a couple of Smith .22's, a 17-3 and a model 41. Absolutely love them. They're great guns. I've never owned one of their rifles though. You got one in particular you're looking at?

    I have a remington 510 targetmaster that was made in 1941 that is in excellent shape and still freakishly accurate. I consider that an awesome .22. My ruger 10/22 came from the factory with a tapco stock which matches my mini-14 also in a tapco stock. Its not super accurate but plenty accurate enough to shoot squirrel or birds. I consider it an awesome .22. My del-ton echo 316/moe and mini-14 are two of the best 223's on the market today and I would consider them both awesome 22's. I have a mossberg plinkster that I paid less than $100 out the door and despite it being very cheap its a tack driver and its reliable. I just dont think it has the ability to withstand hard continuous use. Based on its price and accuracy I consider it................. yep you guessed it, an awesome .22.

    All that being said, I would like to have a complete .22lr upper for my SUR (sport utility rifle) but I will gladly wait til they are reasonably priced again. That would be awesome. :)

    love the concept of a calico. got to fire an older one with the wood handles. was so much like a thompson!!!

    a SAW 22? would like to see one myself if one exists. I'm guessing that if someone modified an airsoft Saw with 22lr inards, you could make a reasonable copy of a real SAW

    Saw a one off dagnorov built on a 10/22 receiver a couple gun shows ago. Cost was prohibitive as it was built from a real parts set and the 28 in barrel was a custom job to mount the front site block.

    You could probably do the same thing with AK parts. Uniqueness factor 11.....

    There's nothing better than some FA .22 goodness. :D

    Here's the Lage conversion for my M11/9.
    I shoot it more than any other weapon I own for multiple reasons.

    I have a High Standard Victor. It's old, but a tack driver.
    I had a Ruger Single Six .22/.22mag. loved it too.

    You want AWESOME .22s? Alrighty, then!

    MOSSBERGS! Would hazard a guess that many of these were made before you were born, and will outshoot anything this side of a $2,000 target rifle.

    However, the American 180 was also a pretty awesome .22

    I have a few. My favorite is my wifes MP15-22. I also have the Norinco ATD (Browning SAA clone) and a Remington 514. I don't shoo the 514 to often, it's an old single shot from the 1950's. I recently sold a Remington 550-1 and it was pretty badass as well

    They still do, although they are hard to come by. I got lucky and have one on the way from Brownells. Saw another on ebay but it's going for almost double msrp.

    I am not sure what you mean by "awesome"; however the following are some of my favorites:

    Ruger 77/22 -- very solid feeling, very accurate .22 rife. Don't see it mentioned much, but I'm a fan.

    Ruger 10-22 -- excellent plinking rifle; obviously a popular model on this forum. I have an older, wood stocked one, but I would also love to have one of the new take-down models to keep in the vehicle.

    Ruger Mk I pistol -- an indisputable classic, and one of my most enjoyable firearms just to mess around with.

    Smith and Wesson K-22 -- very acurate, solid feel -- hey, it's a Smith revolver, what more do you need to say?

    Ruger Single Six Convertable -- not as acurate as the K-22, but it's close. Who would go camping without one of these along? Separate cylinders for .22lr and .22 mag, a complete joy to shoot.

    The problem is Mossberg will not make a 22 like that anymore. Recently I wanted a 22 wmr. I ended up with a Marlin XT. Savage has some nice offerings, so did other gun makers but they all lacked a vital part on a rimfire rifle, iron sights. I sighted the gun in with the iron sights. Then I put a scope on it for punching paper. But if I ever have to use the rifle to put food on the table the first thing I will do is take the scope off the rifle. A scope is great for spotlighting rabbits but game wardens frown such practices. Putting meat in the pot involves shooting running game. Scopes really suck at hitting a moving target at close range.
