I've been pondering getting another .22 as an x-mas gift, I already own a .22 bolt action rifle but want something a little bit cooler. So far, I've been looking at the H&K 416 22. LR or MP5 SD, or the GSG MP5 and S&W 10-22. I don't really have a budget yet but I would say the cheaper the better for now.

Do you guys have any suggestions or have any experience with any of these guns? Are there pre-ban mags for any of them?

Get your pistol permit and it opens up a whole new world of options.
I wish. I'm not 21 yet, I'll probably be 30 by the time i get my license with how the applications are here apparently.

The 10/22 seems neat.

Price for those HK's is i think 450ish for the mp5 and 5 something for the 416.

heres the GSG mp5

GSG MP5SD 22 LR, W/Fake Suppressor, 22 Rnd Mag - Impact Guns

HK 416
H&K 416 22LR, Carbine, 10 Rd Mag, Umarex - Impact Guns

I cant find the 10rd version on this site but this is the 20rd HK mp5

H&K MP5 SD 22LR 16.1 25RD - Impact Guns

edit: i'm not totally sure what's legal here, I thought telescoping stocks are okay as long as it isn't paired with other things that are evil?

That's whats good about the Ruger. You're looking to spend 450 on the aforementioned rifles, you can buy the Ruger and customize it to be tacticool for probably a bit under that price range, and have preban mags hah. And believe me that once you go semi auto for plinking, 10 rounds just isn't enough.

Agreed, except the Eotech, it didn't cost me much to do that. If that's what you're after, you don't want to build it, I'd also look up the Sig 522 and the Smith and Wesson 15-22...also the Ruger SR22 Rifle, is basically a really nicely done up 10/22.

Keep in mind, biggest benefit of the 10/22 is ease of entry into modification, and extreme availability of parts! It also pretty reliably shoots everything.

The 15 22 seems like a really cool gun, I have a bit of a bias as M4's and MP5's are two of my favorite guns. I think my local Dick's has those mp5's and maybe the AR's...so I'll have to go there and check, buying local seems like it would be faster and more convenient but it depends on what they have.

To be an assault rifle and therefore illegal in NY state, the firearm must be:
1. Semiautomatic
2. Accept a detachable magazine
3. Manufactured after September 14, 1994
4. Has two or more of the following:
*Telescoping or folding stock
*Pistol grip
*Bayonet mount
*Flash suppressor (this does NOT include a muzzle brake) OR a threaded barrel
*Grenade launcher

So, with a telescoping stock + pistol grip , those are two 'evil' features and therefore would be illegal in NY state.
