Just got a flier from either SOG or J&G and they have a Rock Island 22 Carbine for $155, and it looks just like the Ruger 10/22.
The article below even says how most parts, factory Ruger & aftermarket, for a 10/22 will work with it.
Maybe this is way someone had a sale recently on 10/22s for under $200?

Well I did a quick web search and found this.
Armscor M22: More than just a 10/22 clone | Home Defense Journal
Don't know if / or how RIA is tied into ARMSCOR?

But if anyone in my area gets them I might buy one just to check it out.

I would say if one company farts the other coughs and says excuse me. Nice to see some competition on the 10/22.might need another that I haven't put a bull barrel on.

What I wanna know is if the triggerguard is metal or plastic, Ruger went plastic and MIM on several parts to lower costs. NOT an improvement as far as I am concerned!

As I understand it, Armscor or Arms Corporation of the Phillipines is the actual name of the company. RIA is the brand name they use for products exported to this country as the RIA name has more recognition here. In the Phillipines, Armscor has been around forever, so they go with that stamped on their guns sold there.

If anyone sees these M22s for sale, please let me know. There are none listed on Gunsamerica.
Has anyone tried one of these "Legacy ISSC M22 .22LR" pistols? It's Austrian and looks like a cross between a Glock and a Kahr

Don't think I've seen that one?



The ad I got is from SOG, you can only see the info on their site if you have an FFL on file, even a C&R counts.
They must be advertising them before they have them in stock, the site has the "notify me" thing for them. But here's the info from them

ROCK ISLAND ARMORY 22 CARBINE 22LR
# ARM-RIA22 (this is most likely SOG's number?)
Ad price 159.95
Product Description:
These Rock Island Armory semi-auto 22LR carbines are brand new and never before been sold in the U.S.! A well made copy of a very popular 22LR 10 shot rifle (Ruger’s patent expired.). All mags and accessories that fit that model will fit this. 18 1/2” barrel. 37 1/2” overall length. Leaf type rear sight and fiber optic front sight.

That's more what a standard 10/22 platform should run, 150ish tops. I can't believe I paid >450 for a Ruger Race Rifle,,the actual model designation, but it sure is spiffy and they only made about 700 of them in 2004 I believe. So hopefully I'll get my $$$ back out of it someday if I do happen to sell it later.

I've only ever seen one other in 4-5 years, so they must be rather scarce, and one's for sale on Gun Broker , used @ just shy of 900, mines still NIB, so I probably won't get hurt on it when I do sell it. I'd sure like to shoot it ,, but I just can't bring myself to do so. This is some pics of the one on Gun Broker for sale,,not mine.

Kinda like my 1962 " Camp Perry" Match Garrand still sealed in the wood crate with the lead seals still intact,,Oh Ya Baby. I've had HUGE offers for that one!! 10K has been the best offer so far. And I've got 3-4 people that keep calling regularly to see if I want to sell it yet,,,NOPE,,,Not Yet!

I'm all about unusual or unissued guns nowadays. Sense I've had just about every gun known to man at one point or another, so not to much impress's me much anymore.

I've got a unissued/ un-rearsinaled Mossin Hex, M-44's Yugo 24 Mausers, mod 59 SKS's, all unissued with the arsenal tags still attached and several others that are WW11 vintage unissued or damn near to it guns. Most I've had sense the 60's-70's when you could still find such stuff around, and most aren't import stamped,now days,,,forgetaboutit!!! You just don't find that kinda stuff anymore.

That's OK,,I've got plenty of other 10/22's , Garands, SKS's and Mossins to shoot! So ,,Life is good!

I'll keep the virgins,,,virgin. There my retirement fund!

Wish I'd bought the race rifle but I'd shot the crap out of it. I thought a buck eighty was too much for the "stainless" 10/22 I bought but I did it anyway.

A basic 10/22 is in the $200 range around here, back in 94 or 95 I got a standard stainless model and that was $180-190 then.

But I do agree that the clone should only be about 150 tops for a basic model, maybe a little less if mail ordered since there's shipping charges.

Coils the 10/22's sold recently for under $200 were Ruger 10/22's. Not sure why Target Sports was selling them for such a good price.

The Armscor M22 looks nice, I also hope that this means there will be even more .22 ammo on the shelves soon. :)

Your thread is what made me post this, thought it was interesting that someone had the 10/22 on sale for a good price and just a few days later I got a flier in the mail that has a clone for less then that sale price.
Maybe the base model 10/22 will come down in price since there's competition now :D



I also hope for more 22 ammo on the shelves, but the price needs to come down too, it's just way over priced right now.

I was told years ago ruger only paid ten bucks for their barrels cause they bought so many. It doesn't make me enjoy their rifles any less. Like most things ruger the modular design makes it open to improve.I always see 10/22 barrels at gun shows taken off for cheap.

It would be nice if the price did come down on them. Of course I like the one's I have. :)

The last few months I've had good luck paying 4-5 cents a round for .22 (except for stingers and mini-mags) - but it would be nice to see the price of .22's back to what it was in 2007. :)

I'd be happy if the 22 prices would be closer to pre-panic prices, you know $20-25 for a brick of the low end stuff, not $50-60 :D

That's all I'm paying for bulk packs (federal 550, Remington 525, Winchester 555) is about $20-$25. 1000 rd. packs of Winchester M22 is about $51. Most of those at that price are from walmart - I've got some at Gander Mountain for that price, and a few from different stores but not as often as walmart. A lot of places seem to charge twice that, but I wish .22 ammo was cheaper (and readily available) everywhere. :)
