Lay the Colt next to a real AR, it's a dead ringer. Feels like one too. I look at it for what it IS- a .22 made to look and feel like an AR- NOT an AR. The attached photo is my buddies Armalite with the Umarex/Colt. The Armalite has the strap.....If the mags were reversed you would be hard pressed to tell 'em apart...LOL


    Oh dont get me wrong. I love my Colt. Just I have medium sized hands. I have to shift my weapon side hand's fire control position to actuate the safety switch. I would prefer a simple 90 turn. not 180 deg.

    If the notion is to have a .22rf that works as much like the real thing as possible, then the S&W gets the nod. If you want pretty, then pick the Colt.

    Firearms are like women- every guy has a preference that differs from the next guy.....I like the Walther/Umarex/Colt- I also like the Smith, but I bought the W/U/C and I DON'T regret it....LOL

    Hey, to each his own, and I didn't mean to argue. I'm happy with the Smith as well...no denying that it is fun to burn a serious amount of ammo in an AR-like platform without the big bill. Fun without guilt!

    Why did it take manufacturers this long to figure it out?

    Are the treads the same as the SIG?

    I have one of these rifles as well. I have to say after seeing the S&W, I think I like it more. My opinion changed after I cleaned it.

    Just shot it for the first time yesterday. used CCI stingers and only had a slight jam in the first round but after that smooth sailing. Im suprised how quiet my M4 is compared to my Sig Mosquito shooting the same round. But I guess that has to do with barrel length and the energy being 16 inches away from my head compared to the mosquito's 4-5 inches.

    I recently purchased the COLT after looking at the S&W and the RUGER 10/22 look alike. I picked the COLT because of the weight and feel. Yes the bolt release and forward assist are for looks but it functions very well and the mags work. I have put about 700 rounds thru it in the last 2 weeks with no failures which is very unusual for any .22 with cheap ammo. I have cleaned it once after the 1st 200 rounds. I swapped out the rear sight for a fold down and put on a cheap TruGlo dot. I have 5 mags and IT IS FUN!!!!!!!!!

    I made a .22 AR out of a crappy 1/12 barrel I had laying around, and a carry handle upper in the parts pin. As an added bonus, I can put a real upper on it and shoot real bullets out of it.

    I guess I don't get the whole 'look alike' .22 guns, because everyone who's been into ARs for more than a week or two probably has the parts laying around to make one (out of real parts) for the cost of a conversion kit (or less). It feels like a real AR because it IS a real AR, and all AR accessories fit and function just fine.

    Unless you have a full AR laying around to use, or enough parts to put one together, it is going to cost more when you add on a $200 conversion kit. I would rather just spend the $400-500 on a "fake" one, that can also use real AR accessories and that was made to shoot .22lr.
