First of all, great SN. Moshe Dayan was a bad-ass, although he kinda screwed the pooch during the first hours of the Yom Kippur War.

If it were his design, sure, but it's someone else's. That might put a bit of a crimp in his willingness to charge tons of money. I'd also argue that there's not as much of a market for a $1500...

This would be more appropriate in the Rimfire forum, but, IMHO, there's no point to the SR-22 anymore. CMMG and DPMS both offer "real" AR-15s in 22lr now, at very reasonable prices.

You'll be fine with .308 or 7.62x51 in either rifle.
