    At the local pawn shop today I saw a full rack f rifles and display case of handguns. Mossbergs, marlins, Rossi, Taurus etc etc.

    Im such a noob in the scene that I feel conflicted in situations like this. I know that is likely to fine GREAT DEALS in pawn shops. However my lack of time in the scene limits my pricing experience.

    There was a Marlin 882ss (22lr) Synthetic stock with a large scope. It looked in FAIR condition. I asked how much and the lady said $175, but for cash it was negotiable. I totally didnt know what to say. Ive been wanting 22 for the longest but now find myself debating if I should just get a CMMG conversion kit on my AR15. Hmmm

    To all you collectors/shooters, how important is it to have a stand alone 22? I think it a must for any collection.

    I think most collectors/shooters have a .22 because it was the first gun we ever had as a "young shooter". It may be the one we have had or it is one that is the same make and model.
    If you do not have a .22 in your collection then you do not have a complete set (.22, shotgun, rifle) of long guns.
    For cash you should be able to get the 882ss for 125 to 150, my thinking.

    I have a GSG5 anniversary edition and I love it, but it wasn't cheap...

    Thats what I was thinking. Ive also seen an uprise in 22lr sporting going on since the market scare took the fun out of firing other larger calibers. thanks

    If you barrel twist is anything slower than 1:7 I would go for the conversion kit. Being able to plink all day with your AR for a fraction of the normal costs is great fun. People spend a lot of money to make their 10/22s all tacticool when their ARs already are.
