The Colt .22 Tactical Rimfire line is manufactured by Carl Walther, Germany and imported to the US by Umarex.

The products consist of six models (three types with 30-round or 10-round capacity magazines).

The model pictured below (from top to bottom) are the M16 Rifle (UX2245055), the M4 Carbine (UX2245050), and the M4-OPS Carbine (UX2245051).

Both carbine models have barrel lengths of 16.2″; the M16 Rifle has a 21.2″ barrel.

Both Carbines come equipped with 6-position collapsible stocks.  The M4 features a removable carry handle and the M4 OPS has and extended Picatinny rail and a modified fore end grip.

The  M4 Carbine OPS model is on the bottom of this comparison photo:

Compared to the AR-15 (Colt AR-15 SP1 model used for comparison) the M16 Rifle has a slightly longer buttstock and barrel (the AR15 is 20″ compared to the M16 Rifle’s 21.2″).

Despite the model names (“M4” and “M16”) that evoke their military counterparts, these firearms are strictly semiautomatic in operation.

Compared to the .22LR Conversion kits (see Jonathan Arthur Ciener and CMMG) at $199.95, plus the cost of dedicated .22LR upper assemblies, e.g., $575.99 at this CMMG link, or $439.99 Olympic Arms at Midway, I think that the Colt Tactical Rimfires are exceptional values.  The least expensive of the conversion examples above would total $640, while the most expensive Colt .22 Tactical Rimfire model is $574.99.
