Here's the range report

Shot it a hundred rounds or so at 30' (standing, not on a rest) and could get groups like you see.

It shot at point of aim, fed and cycled well... Absolutely no issues using a couple of different types of high velocity bulk ammo

The trigger pull is fine... Not too gritty... Exactly 6lbs per my wheeler scale. Has a long reset however.

I was happy with how this rifle shouldered and aimed...and I could swing it easily from target to target (the new bold self healers)

Will give it a go at longer range next time out

Need to find a couple of more mags... They are scarce

Looks like it might go on my list! $150 is a great price. I did some checking and around here they are $289+. Where did you buy it?

Is the furniture actual wood or is it some type of wood colored plastic/polymer? Saw a review of one and the reviewer said the stock/grip/forward were plastic.

Congrats on your new heater that looks like a ton of fun. You have to get more mags. Is that revolver a 990 or 992? It is a good partner for your new long gun.

Butt stock is real Philippine wood--- (sounds like fine Corinthian leather 🙂 )has some grain to it... Looks and feels OK

I'll check the grip and foreend... I think both wood too

Appears only the butt stock is wood - pistol grip and handguard faux wood ( hard plastic )

I have been searching for one of these (RIA MAK22) for weeks to no avail. Every site I've checked (and I've check a BUNCH) lists them as out of stock. Either they are very popular or RIA just isn't making that many of them. Sure would like to find one.

Buds got the MAK22 back in stock. Ordered one today! $177.00. Should have it in a bit.
