    Yes, simple blowback.

    I have been thinking the same thing. I haven't taken it fully apart yet, but it looks like the barrel insert will remove from the back and the exterior sleeve from the front. That being the case, you could machine a heavy profile barrel from a blank (or other take-off) to fit... with some receiver mods I am sure. But once done, I think you'd have quite a nice little rimfire tack driver.

    As with all the various "tactical" rimfires, the barrels are generally cheap which is why they have crap for accuracy.

    Are the iron sights near to the same quality as HK 416 sights? Also can you remove the rear drum sight base and put an actual HK base on it? I was planning to buy a set, but the sights go for $300 and I could just buy one of these .22's and have the sights and a whole gun for a little more money.

    Sorry for high jacking.

    Nice review Chop I got mine yesterday from Adam also. Took it out today with Federal 550 pack had 4 FTF all ammo related. Didn't check for accuracy.

    Update just cleaned rifle not that hard you can pull the internals out. Used break clean looks like new again.

    I was thinking the same thing. My boy is 3. The adjustable stock would make a kid friendly LOP - better than cutting a 10/22 stock.

    Never handled the 416 sights so I don't know. The front sight appears to be aluminum or a very light-weight steel... seems durable enough for "normal" use. The rear sight base is also the same material. An MP5 drum-base fits right on. The windage screw and locking screw are different but the 416-22 base could easily be re-tapped to the correct size if you'd rather use the MP5 stuff... putting on an MP5 drum/base would be a VERY worthwhile enhancement as the 416-22 elevation adjustment is fairly crappy IMO. You'll also need to get a longer detent bearing spring or stuff a small block in the base.

    Hijack away!!! I was hoping that by starting this thread, it would generate a more technical discussion. I'm glad you posted a photo of the internals removed... confirmed my belief that the barrel came out from the rear. I'm going to have to get some time to pull mine out... I REALLY would like to do a barrel upgrade. Aside from a function BHO button (which looks like it could be done), the only real weakness that I can see is the barrel.

    Joe, once I saw you post this, I knew your wheels were churning. Nice review! Hoping to pick one up soon...after I get my new motorcycle this week.

    Very interesting receiver construction. That's much fancier/more complex than 10/22 construction, but I guess that's why it's more than twice the price. But if it is easier to clean and more reliable than the 10/22 it is worth it.
    I don't think the bbl looks too bad for what it is. This is only 22 LR Chop, I wonder if a heavy bbl will make much difference, I think it's really on the edge of diminishing returns, it's never going to be a PSG-1! LOL
    I have a new 10/22 with heavy bbl and a very old Marlin 22 my grandfather gave me with a pretty light bbl and I don't see any difference in accuracy that I can discern.
