    Cool In the market for a 22 AR Platform...

    Hey guys, I'm in the market for an AR platform 22 and I've been looking at the Hammerli Tac R1 22 and the Smith & Wesson Mp Sport... the Hammerli won't be in till October and the Smith & Wesson I can't get any info on so far! Do you guys have or recommend any other brands as I'm new to Semi Autos... TIA

    Smiths are due @ the end of the mth along with a pile of other rugers . I would bet that the entire shipment is sold out .

    I own a S&W MP15 which I might be interested in moving at some point, just putting it out there.

    But it has been a really decent rifle

    I have a Kriss. They are cool as they can take AR parts (furniture, charging handles, triggers, handguards, safetys) and 10/22 barrels. They function like a "proper" AR too (last round bolt hold open with a proper bolt catch, most of the AR-22 that bolt hold open you have to re pull the charging handle).

    They aren't perfect and have a few shortcomings but they are pretty neat. Grant from Tactical Imports is the actual company approved importer and so his come with the factory warranty.

    Just picked a Kriss DMK22 LVOA from Tactical Imports. The build quality for the rifle is extremely awesome.

I have a Titanium suppressor I picked up cheap so it should be a nice light compact bunny gun.

    @Beavis I saw one of them while getting a DPT fitted in Hamilton back in March. The owner let me have a closer look was that you getting a DPT fitted? If so cheers for letting me have a look and nice to meet you
    It's all fun and games till Darthvader comes along
    I respect your beliefs but don't impose them on me.
