    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:texas:

    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.
