since 22lr is coming back

Any experience with 22lr conversions in a AR? How does 22lr shoot out of a 1 in 9 - 7 twist? It doesnt have to be bug hole accurate, but it has to be good enough to provide honest feedback.

There is no rush. I am not interested in a flat top funky chicken hand guard with places for attaching the flat screen. I want to use my A2NM upper, OR a A2 22lr dedicated upper. I have seen a dedicated M4 upper that might be ok, but it would throw the weight off. With the a once in a lifetime purchase this year (Lee navy) and not including my birfday present (all not here yet) child vehicles and wife appeasement, the Black Ops fund needs substantial (snow removal or a lightning filled on call week) supplementation prior to any purchase.

I just want some info then keep a eye out for something that will work.

I would buy a 1-16 twist upper or a S&W MP15-22.

Re: since 22lr is coming back

At this time I cant seem to locate a 1:16 A2 upper.

There are M4 uppers that would be ok, and then a boatload of tacticool ones.

Re: since 22lr is coming back

you can probably buy a complete AR in .22lr caliber for less when they are on sale.

Re: since 22lr is coming back

Saw those after I posted. ouch, but it may be the option.

I know a whole dedicated 22lr could be less, however it is a different trigger, lighter, most have collapsible stocks, tacticool hand guards, and are flat tops.

If my first build goes OK here in a month, I might just build a dedicated upper.

Did a little more looking on that Mod 1 site. The upper is 510, the entire 22lr A2 kit is 580. So with a on sale Anderson lower, NM sights upgrade and some weight, I could match the size and weight.
