Hey, the website says the model is the "ELITE", and it's "Tactical" - so you know it's got to be good.... :D

Hope you got it for way less than that price listed on the site linked! I see other name brand AR-15 .22's for almost half that price. Cabelas has the S&W version on now for $319.

We're dealers for these folks so as you might expect I got it at dealer cost :wink:

I've been buying at dealer cost for so long now if I had to buy new current manufacture stuff at cost in a gunshop I dunno what I'm gonna do .

Now with that being said I think I'm slowly getting in the market for a decent used original Parker VH/VHE 28 gauge :roll:

Well, I'm of the opinion that any gun that goes bang and does no injury to the shooter is a good gun. All guns are good, just some are better than others... :wink:

Generally it’s a boat anchor until it’s proven itself . Plus I have a bunch of Thunderbolts and Yellowjackets 22LR I can use it to shoot up .

I was slightly tempted when I saw several .22LR versions based on the AR15 platform. But since I'm .22 poor, and have some really accurate .22 target grade rifles, I know I'd quickly tire of one based on the AR15, and then I'd end up selling it at a loss, or never shooting it.
I love .22 rimfires, but only if they're either very old, or very accurate. Don't have much use for one that isn't one or the other.

What was it the fellow said about one being born every minute? I just bought a .22 lr bolt for my Stag. Works great, and I can have either a lousy centerfire round or a really good rimfire round out of the same rifle.

The one I originally purchased had a recall so we sent it back before I fired it . The replacement showed up today . I’m still waiting on the Athelon scope , but I may shoot it with the pop up sights just for the heck of it !
