The metric stuff is more common. I personally build and collect only Inch, Aussie and Brit. It is a little harder to find 922r parts and especially correct receivers, as they just aren't made as often as metric stuff. Mags are more expensive than metric, but built a little sturdier. Often inch rifles will feed and function fine with metric mags, but not always 100%.
Of course nice inch stuff brings a higher price too.
