Anybody own one? I'm looking for something cheap and fun to shoot. It has come down to a Smith & Wesson MP 15-22 or a GSG-5 (not AR style). Any opinions?

The SIG 522 is on sale down the street for 329 dollars, I just didn't want to buy a scope and iron sights are a little under 300 bucks. I might still buy it though. Do you have one?

for the money either the sig 522 or the smith and wesson m&p 15-22. Both have had some issues here and there but for the money dont expect a work of art. I'll probably be gettin the smith myself very soon. Im buying a house with more then 5 acres so I'll be in my yard shooting at everything I see  :D

Go with a lower from Bushmaster, Stag, DPMS or other AR manufacturer and purchase a dedicated .22LR upper.
BassResource.com is the best!

The GSG 5 for about $500 is a fun little piece.

I handled the colt today and liked it. But I heard they jam up quite a bit. Infact Green Top which is one of the top fish/hunt shops in VA says they wont carry it anymore because so many ppl bought one there and came back with complaints. I take it yours has been trouble free ? Have you had to fix anything ?

I personally like the lever actions. I have a couple of Winchester 9722. I can mix or match the shorts, longs, and long rifle loads. I also have a couple of SA but they are boring to shoot.

While I do not know what problem are being experenced with jamming, some problems are from the ammo used. In my personal experence I find CCI's Mini-Mag HV ammo reduces jamming problems as does keeping the rifle clean. The only accessory added to this rifle is a Walther PS 55 Red Dot Sight.

Wayne, I also love level actions ;)

Ammo will be the cause of 99% of your problems with semi 22's.

Bulk pack ammo, while nice and cheap, is sometimes just that.  Cheap.  You will get batches of under-powered 22 rounds in the bulk packs. That is the trade-off with the rounds costing a bit more money (Remington 525 pack vs CCI 50 pack).

Swab the barrel every 100-200 rounds and clean it well at the end of the day.  Most, if not all, of the guns mentioned in this thread will perform well for you.

Personally, I like Burley's suggestion.  Gives you more options for when you want to shoot with the big boys.

The scale never lies, but yours might be broken.

A little off topic, but I just picked up a sweet older 22 lever action.

H&K MP5 is a great way to ring thru boxes of .22 ammo also. Lots of add ons too. Little more expensive, $450 range, but no problems.
Son, I didn't suggest you not do it, I suggested you not get caught.
