Re: 22LR conversion!!

I have had a Ceiner and 3 CMMG .22 Conversion kits. The Ciener worked okay but all 3 of the CMMG's worked great. The accuracy out of a .223 barrel was completely acceptable. I would say the CMMG's worked more reliably than my 2 Ruger 10/22's.

At $180 I don't see any reason to go to a dedicated upper other than just convenience.

    I have a tactical solutions dedicated upper, it is very accurate and lightweight, im actually trying to sell it if you're interested, it has a threaded barrel and is really fun with a silencer

    True1911,

    The definition of "acceptable" is the issue here. If you're talking about a true training rifle for a dedicated HP-XC competitor, the drop-in conversion units are not acceptable. For this sort of application, or to use them in any sort of smallbore competition, you'll need a dedicated upper, and one that's properly built at that. Derrick Martin, Frank White and a couple others will set one up nicely. Again, for purposes of just plinking or familiarization with an AR platform, the drop-ins are great.

    With good ammo, my Accuracy Speaks upper, as well as every one I've seen from Compass Lake (Frank White) will hold x-ring on an A-36 50 yard smallbore target. The drop-ins, on the other hand, would be hard pressed to hold 10 ring, and most I've worked with would be doing good to have held the 8 ring. It's all a matter of degrees.

    With a little gunsmithing a 10/22 can shoot! Check out my link below.

    Thanks Nemohunter! - RimfireCentral.com Forums

    I do however like my dedicated AR-22! It's a shooter as well!
