Default Current US military .22's ?

I was just wondering if anyone knows what the US military is currently using for .22 trainers and .22 match rifles?

For the most part, the DoD has gotten out of the .22 rifle business. The various service teams probably shoot Anschutz.

Dod went to the 22 conversions in the M16A1 then to a simulator with lasers and pneumatic pumps to simulate recoil and such. I do not believe the military uses any .22 trainer for any use at this time

The USMC EOD teams still use .22LR rifles and "match" .22LR ammo. Haven't seen them in person, just on custody lists.
