My new go to 22LR
I completed a dedicated AR22 build this winter and was putting it through it's paces. I really like it. I own a lot of 22's but this is the one I grab when the red squirrels make a assault on the bird feeder. I have 22 pumps, levers, single shots, and semi-autos and this is my new favorite. It took me a lot of years to warm up to the AR platform and for that matter semi-auto period. Kinda' hard for me to think I'd reach past a Winchester 1890, Marlin 39, or Remington model 12 to grab this but I do. Maybe the thrill of high velocity ammo and a red dot will wear off in a couple months and I'll be back to 22 shorts and a Lyman peep. But until then all squirrels beware.
