I know is a great gun, but a friend that knows way more about guns than I do said to get the S&W that the Colts don't work well. Anyone know of any problems with the Colts? And, where is a good place to buy one on the cheap?the Colts don't use a ciener conversion type magazine so you would be stuck with what you get from the factory. there are a lot of ciener style .22's that use magazines from many different manufacturers and the prices are going down on those too. cmmg and black dog make the best and cheapest magazines.
