    Are you only looking for a .22?

    Only because they are cheaper to shoot will move up to a 5.56 or 7.62 down the road

    But if I come across something with an amazing price I might have to pick it up looking in the 5 to 6 hundred range

    Well I would get a ruger 10/22 .22lr... They run about $200 and it will never give you a problem. It was my first and I fell in love with it. You can soup it up how ever you want. The only reason why I wouldnt get an ar-15 type .22 is that if something breaks or you need mags/parts, they are harder to find and cost more.

    I would agree... You probably don't want to start with a 5 or 6 hundred dollar pretend assault weapon... especially since your reason for the small caliber is cost of shooting... the other 400 bucks will go a long way buying 5.56 or 7.62, etc. You might really take a long hard look at that 10/22... Great solid platform and you could use the left over money to get something like an SKS... Also a good solid platform... Then you have BOTH a plinker and a "man's gun"...

    Amazing that no one asked the most important question before giving an answer: "What do you want to do with it?"

    Ive had a 522 for almost a year now. Lots of fun. Very reliable. Parts are NOT hard to find for them. Sigs website has tons of stuff and ive seen mags,sights and others odds and ends at every gun show ive been to since I bought the 522. It is on the expensive side for a .22lr. But the accuracy, reliability and Sig name make it worth it IMO.
