.22 rifles typically have issues because they aren't built with the same QA and high standards as a semi-auto combat rifle.
the majority of .22 issues stem from ammo/magazines. One type of ammo that works amazingly in a Ruger, might be god aweful in a Mossberg.
to get a .22 AR to work as well as a 5.56 AR, you'd have to spend as much as that 5.56 AR.
