I hope this is the correct forum area for my question. Question: Is there such a thing as a 22 rimfire assault RIFLE on the market? I have been unable to find one, although it would be technically possible to make a fully automatic 22 rimfire. I don't actually want one. The local newspaper ran an article in which the person arrested was in possession of a "...22 caliber assault rifle..." The article also mentioned that the person had a 223 Bushmaster, which indicates that the former was referring to a rimfire weapon. I'm just curious. Thanks in advance for your info.
