ISSC mark22 modern sporting rifle Several manufactures are producing tactical style 22 long rifle sporting handguns, sub-guns and rifles several of which styled after their tactical big brothers and many of them incorporating the same fire controls for affordable range practice. These tactical rimfire firearms are relatively affordable, cheap to shoot due to the readily available and inexpensive rimfire ammunition and are excellent for varmints, plinking, target and training.Today I write about the ISSC mk 22, which is an austrian built fn scar clone chambered in the ever popular 22 long rifle america's favorite firearm cartridge. The MK 22 is a very well-built modern sporting rifle which does show in its price, between $450.00-$550.00 US dollars this black rifle features a 16 inch Lothar Walther match grade barrel with flash suppressor, a black synthetic folding stock fully adjustable for length-of-pull adjustable cheek piece for proper alignment with back up iron sights, red-dot, or scopes can be mounted on picatinny style rail mounts at 12-3-6 and 9 o'clock for mounting flashlights, lasers, and front grips. Overall Length 33.74"-35.16" Weight (empty):7.5 lbs. This rifle comes with variable and folding open sights and is available in either a 10+1 california compliant model#M211002 or 22+1 magazine capacity model#M211000 depending on jurisdiction. This rifle is completely ambidextrous and is a blast to shoot. This rifle may cost a little more than most of its tactical rimfire competitors but you know the old saying "You get what you pay for" and this holds true with the issc mk22 with proper care and maintenance and some good quality rimfire ammunition you will find this rifle fun, accurate, reliable and plain out cool your friends will want one.

BUILD QUAILITY - "You get what you pay for" excellent build quality.

FIT AND FINISH- Fit is good; the stocks cheek piece for me with the sights folded down was terrible, I had to get all out of shape to get proper sight allignment. Folded up it was fine with the cheek piece at its lowest setting and with high scope rings I was able to adjust the cheek piece up one click for a perfect and natural field of view. Finish is great.

ERGONOMICS- The ISSC MK22 is a well balanced rifle and is almost completely ambidextrous with the exeption of the 6 point adjustable charging handle. The fire controls are large and easy to operate.

RELIABILTY- Probably too soon to judge but i would venture to say this gun has been so far very reliable for me with 500 rounds fired and no failures, just like most firearms with proper care, cleaning, lubrication, and last but definitely not least quality ammunition you will find this weapon extremely reliable and ready for action for many years.

OVERALL RATING- This is an excellent tactical rimfire rifle which has a lot to offer though it may be priced a bit higher than some of its competitors it is now my favorite tactical 22 long rifle. On a scale of 1-10 I would rate the issc mk22 an 8.5. Thank You And May All Your Shots Find There mark... http://www.dutraarms.com
