People love these guns and I have no idea why! What is the difference (other than the obvious calibre etc.) between it and the 10/22?

range for one thing. sure .22's are fun to shoot out to fifty yards but gets a little boring after awhile. that and everyone wants a semi-auto rifle and they are less expensive then some AR's.

In Canada they are one of the very few inexpensive, non-restricted semi-auto 223 rifles.

They are decent rifles and don't have that "scary black rifle" look that some people puss out about.

Some police forces even use Mini-14s, Ive seen used LEO ones for sale through online gun stores.

They fling that friggin brass, though. Ive never seen anything that throws brass that far, closest is probably my CZ-82 or my SCCY 9mm.

Compact, lightweight, rugged-as-hell, reliable, affordable, digests both the .223/5.56 - plentiful, inexpensive ammo, combat/hunting accurate, low-recoil, the .223 does not (typically) over-penetrate through humans, walls or buildings (self-defense) like a larger caliber rifle. I've got one in composite/stainless (basically weather-proof) and happen to own a 44-acre ranch. It just plain works. And with the 20/30 round magazines, it's fun to shoot paper or targets.
