    I know calico went under, but does anybody know if their guns/ designs will ever re-emerge? perhaps some enterprising soul or company bought the patents?

    maybe they already have?

    Why did you sell it? Did it work OK? I'd think they'd be fun if they were reliable shooters, a bit expensive for a .22 though.

    It worked with CCI MiniMags very well. I didn't want it anymore, I had more accurate .22s, and I didn't really need the 100 round capacity. I'm happy with my 10/22s and Henry leverguns.

    oops. I really thought they had gone under and their site did not pop up on my google search for calico or calico rifle. I was actually hoping maybe some other company would come out with a similar product that was not quite so.....well, you can't call the .22 anything but ugly. and the 9mm doesn't fit me quite right.
    i LOVE the designs though.

    They are back up and running. The company did go under, but is now back in business.
