    I'm picking up AK #10 today after lunch:banana:

    It has the wood furniture and comes with one 24-round magazine. I bought two more mags from Bud's...actually, their last two mags, and they will be here on Monday.

    I got it from CDNN for $279.99 +shipping for a total of $302.97!!!:wow: How could I pass that up?

    Lowest price on GB I found was $319 + shipping.

    I will post pics later on today. If anyone has one and would like to give me their impression of this gun I would be all ears. I did read that they prefer HIGH VELOCITY ammo......true?

    Thanks all:wavey:

    I have to say that I am very impressed with this gun! It has some weight to it and overall seems very well-built. The only thing that I don't like is the trigger. It feels gritty but hopefully it will smooth out over time. I hope to get it to the range this Sunday.

    Here are some pics:

    The ones we have had in the shop were very well built. They use a lot of plastic and alloy, but it's only a 22lr, so no foul in my book. It's leap and bounds better than the Armscorp 22 AK. Good looking rifle.

    Can't wait to get some of the German made StG44 22LR rifles from ATI. All metal & wood and weigh in at 11 pounds! Come in a wood transit case too.

    I've checked those out at my LGS, not ready to buy one yet. I did grab the GSG-5 back a couple of years ago, which is a fun plinker. Now all you need are a few spare mags.

    Two will be here on Monday.....they were the last two that Bud's had, so I grabbed them:cool: I will keep getting a couple at a time till I have enough....:supergrin:


    Wow, $500? To me, that's a lot to spend on a .22, I probably would have bought a Draco pistol for that price:whistling: Sigs are nice guns though.

    Thanks all:thumbsup:

    I have one and have shot about 500 rounds (without cleaning) of Remington bulk ammo from the 525 round green and yellow box, with maybe one or two jams. I believe those were ammo related.

    Very nice well built gun imho.

    I paid $299.00 at Dunham's sports. Could have waited for a sale at $279.00, but I didn't want to wait.

    The SIG 522 is built to an entirely different standard that the GSG arms. It uses an all-aluminum receiver, full steel barrel, and full steel bolt/buffer system.

    I just bought a box of that exact ammo yesterday at Dick's.

    I hope to try it out tomorrow or next Sunday:wavey:


    That's why I said they are nice guns.:wavey:



    I would rather have a S&W M&P-22 though.
