    We must have different definitions of high speed and low drag. That looks neither to me.

    seriously though... if someone can come out with a 22lr drum that works it would make a fun thompson clone...

    the heat shield is amusing on this one. :)

    plenty of people have plenty of fun burning up 22lr from similar looking 10/22's.

    to each their own, i think its becoming more popular to have 22lr matches than "real rifles" due to the cost of ammo.

    I'm sure the tacticool crowd will love it. Mall ninjas across the world will rejoice and marvel at its magnificence.

    Me, I like the wood furniture - pity I'll never be able to afford one. :(

    It'll doubtless be banned in the Democratic Peoples Republic of Maryland - I KNOW the mag won't be allowed.

    ummmm, MSRP is $595. that means maybe $450-500 street price. the 50 round drum is $105. too much dough for a goofy .22 for me thanks.

    Looks like the unsightly marriage of a PPSh, Beretta (take your pick all of the new Beretta long guns look the same to me), and AR-15. The typical wood PPSh stocked variant looks pretty good, but quota is filled for .22LRs at the moment; unless something great comes out...like the sunset of the '86 FA ban...so quota is filled.

    My Christmas rifle is a Ruger Mini 14 for $607.00. I already shoot .22's too fast with an old bolt stevens tubefeeder.

    I really like that thing. Willing to bet the drum works like crap so I can leave that out but the gun itself would be fun.

    Here is my EXCAM PPF50 that I got way back in 1987 for $250. It runs very well using CCI MinMags. The drum came with a wire loading tool. Slow to load at just one at a time.
    The drum does not open nor wind.
    (My Calico .22 rifle with a 100 round helicoil drum loads faster and winds up.)

    It is nice they brought them back after the 94 Ban however. I can even spruce mine up with a plastic stock for $150.

    Texas, baby!
    the Sig, which is the best of the 22/ar's, can be had right now from AJC sportshop/pawnshop, near Dallas, for 400 bucks,has a killer side folder stock, and has not only ar style mags, that are interchangeable with almost all other 22type/ar's out there(except the A@W#$s at smith/wesson, and colt), but they also feature a drum, that has it's own internal speed/turn handle, that makes it load like a LULA mag loader, and it is built into the drum!!!! How awesome is that, but the drum is 100 bucks....
    Looks just like this one, with the folding stock!

    My only problem with the S&W 22LR is it doesn't look like it has a flash suppressor and a bayonet lug. What the heck?

    My Rock River Arms LAR-15 lower with CMMG 22LR upper has a retractable buttstock, pistol grip, flash supressor, bayonet lug, and it accepts detachable magazines :evil:

    None of my other rifles have a bayonet lug :( I need to see about adding one to my M1A, and then find an old school bayonet for it at some flea market or ebay ...

    Looks like a PPSH, Ruger 10/22, FNAR, and AR15 all got together and had a bastard child :barf:

    Well, it's fine..... *IF* it works. Why not. But a 50 round drum on a de facto manual repeater tacticool .22? - Idonthinso.

    Also I just noticed what appears to be the smallest gun I've ever seen in the upper left of the picture... What is that?

    The Wildcat looks pretty high-drag to me.:)

    Low-drag would be this, one of the last of the 9422s.:(
