thinking about either a sig 522 or m&p 15-22..any ideas? also are the "evil" features and mag limits the same on .22 as they are on centerfire?

Rim fire dosn't need a bullet button. The Cali 10 round mag law still is there.

The Ruger 10/22 is the first for everything (first gun, first .22 LR.... etc).

not trying to rain on your parade but why not spend a lil more and get the ar15 dedicated 22lr that way if you ever wanna shoot another caliber you just buy a that caliber upper and mag lock?

i currently have a sig 556 as a primary rifle, but tryin to get my wife and kids into shooting also and i know she wont like the recoil of the .223 hence the purchase of a 22...i have been thinkin of building an ar15 so maybe just get the 22 conversion for it during the build? probably cheaper in the long run...

The M&P 15-22 rifle is a great rifle, i think one of its best features is its lite weight easy for kids, it will take some AR parts.
The 522 was fun as well, but it was heavier.
If these are you 2 choices, I would get the 15-22

i vote for 522...the whole AR-15 'fad' is gettin outta hand LOL ... cant speak how well a 15-22 is, but my 522 has been insanely fun and reliable since day 1

Correction. The tube-fed exemption doesn't just apply to .22 cal firearms. :)

12020 (c)(25) As used in this section, "large-capacity
magazine" means any ammunition feeding device with the capacity
to accept more than 10 rounds, but shall not be construed to
include any of the following:
(A) A feeding device that has been permanently altered so
that itcannot accommodate more than 10 rounds.
(B) A .22 caliber tube ammunition feeding device.
(C) A tubular magazine that is contained in a lever-action
firearm.
