    So I finish up some AR SBR 9mm fun at Shiloh last night and decide to head to the Academy down the street for some 22lr. Well low and behold an Colt AR22?? 2 models $580.00 and $600.00 I coundln't resist. It looks to be a great training rifle. I'll give a range report next week.

    So tell us about the construction of the rifle. I have heard varying versions and some say that the metal seems weak or airsoft quality. I have been considering something similar, and am just curious. I will probably just go with an AR platform and get a .22 upper, but if these are good quality, it might make since to just have a dedicated platform...

    The overall construction seems OK, it's not typical AR quality, but
    for what it cost it seems it will serve it's purpose. I'm going to give it a good work over, suppressed and unsupressed. Yes, the importers main dealings are in airsoft.

    Is it a standard AR lower? That a pin or a rollmark above the safety on the right hand side?
