I found the two C9s, and got one for my son...he's 19 and afraid once he's 21 gun purchases may not be legal. The Phoenix .25 shoots great. It has almost no recoil, and you can empty the mag (9 shots) in about 5 seconds and still keep all the holes inside the vital zone on the BG target. I can hardly get a double tap to do that with the C9.
Sorry just my take on the thousand dollar 10/22s out there. I mean if you want to spend that much on a rifle fine but to go to all that trouble and expense and not even bed the barrel, which benefits the 10/22 greatly, is just playing dress up IMO. Cause it sure as hell doesn't make the rifle or the rifleman shoot any straighter.
