It would be nice if they can take preorders on these Sigs.

Meh...I think the GSG is cooler than both. Spikes is cooler than all. BUT, of those two I would go with the Sig just because its not something you see every day. I suppose if you dont have an AR-15 or see them everytime you go shooting it may be cool as well.

I really want this:



Hope it makes it to market, and to the U.S. also. I'll also take the SIG 522.

Who makes that bad boy?

And, does anybody have any more information on the 522? I really want one, but I have no idea where to sign up or if it even has a release date...

That looks like it must be an Izhmash manufactured Saiga 22. It will probably be imported by RAA, but last I heard it isn't a done deal yet.

i am glad to more of these black rifle 22lr clones, I would love the gsg5 but the effects of supply and demand have put them out of the range i want to pay. By adding more options hopefully we will see them all available for around $500

I know these aren't as "kool" as a spikes dedicated or something but I already have an AR15 and a GSG. I think the S&W will sell like crazy, who cares if the lower is not interchangeable, I mean your buying a .22 if you want something else then don't get this gun. I like that companies are coming out with affordable cool looking guns to shoot. Especially being .22 is very cheap to shoot........... well it was cheap. Good luck finding any .22 now!

DANGIT WERE SCREWED!!!!

Not sure how down I am with a plastic 1911 and a plastic AK. Look at the seam on the 1911 frame and what is with the non authentic dimensions on the AK receiver? And what is that selector switch under the sight block, is it an on/off switch for the cool gun go bang sound effects??

edit: i found this thread about the 1911 on ar15 http://www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=6&f=41&t=266512 they say the one in the original pic is a dummy and plastic but the ones they show at shows and conventions are steel and feel just like any other 1911

I definitely want one of the .22 AR clones.

Interesting ... I just noticed that the Sig 522 has a twist rate of 1 in 7" -- inappropriate for 22lr. This leads me to believe the Colt M4 .22 will shoot better; it has a 1 in 13.75". Not sure what the twist rate for the new S&W is.

Yea lol. All dedicated .22 uppers are 1/16 twist. 1/7 is a big "no no" for AR barrels shooting .22lr.

Get a spikes.

The S&W is 1 in 15". I'd say that and the Colt are close enough, but yeah, I'm staying away from the Sig. Seems like they're trying to save money by re-purposing their .223 barrels or something.

This might be a mistake. I will believe it when I see a production model with my own 2 eyes.

Does anyone know any dealers in the SoCal area that are pre ordering for the SW15-22?

What do you think is a mistake?

No, sorry, I don't know of any dealers that are pre-ordering -- but then again, I haven't been asking. I don't see the gun on S&W's Web site, so it still may be a while.

Sorry, guys. I think I was looking at http://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2...22-lr-sig-550/

Sig's site definitely says 1 in 16" as of right now. I don't know if I checked it before, but I should have. I left a comment asking The Firearm Blog to edit the article ... I feel like an idiot for perpetuating a typo.
