can someone advise me as to which models might be a good choice/quality and reasonably priced?
stay away from the Colt/Umarex !! (just my OPINION !!
) i bought one when they first hit the market, fired a few mags thru it and immediately traded it for the S&W M&P 15-22 with the flash hider, it is so accurate, i bought a second one for my wife, it too is very accurate.., now if you already own an AR-15 style rife i highly recommend the Tactical Solutions’ AR-22 M4
i bought one of these before the S&W M&P 15-22 or Colt 22 came on the market this upper is one of the very best you can invest in, very accurate and reliable from shot to shot.
