Good news for Nordic. They been making a 10/22 adapter that let's you used AR components.

Here's the Ruger:

Here's Nordic

Price will be the interesting point. The Nordic receiver chassis retails for $225, and then you have to add all the AR-15 parts plus a Ruger 10/22

Very cool! And finally, a 10/22 with a decently sturdy scope mount!

Ol' Bill must be whirling in his grave.

Ruger "gets it."

They've been America's premier manufacturer of projectile toys, for decades. They were slipping.

Look at those 50 yard groups! 0_o

Wow.

I know that the 10/22 fanatics don't believe it, but most Marlin 60s will shoot that well.

However, those are the best groups I've ever seen from a factory 10/22. The extended mag release is something they should include with all 10/22s, as well.:)

I like the idea a lot and in fact was pretty excited when I saw this on the DRTV blog. But that a steep price point right now. Put it in the 300-400 and it can compete with other quality .22lrs

I think S&W has the better Idea

this ruger merely LOOKS like an AR......from a distance

the S&W looks and CONTROLS like an AR

HUGE DIFFRENCE

$695 for a .22?

Edit: read it wrong it's $625. It's still nuts

They're nuts

when are folks gonna learn the difference between MSRP and retail:rolleyes:

but yeah it's still kinda expensive even taking off the customary $200

Not really their idea.

I've had a .22LR AR for a while...

Well you gotta give em credit as their platform is way more refined as a dedicated .22 than most of the conversions you'll find that will cost darn near as much if not more and can be iffy propositions at times.

Heck the S&W rifle is going for much less than an upper. Plus the bolt holds open:D

Wow let us see. For +$500 I can get a new Ruger SR-22, which is basically a new look for an $180 rifle, that only has 10 round rotary factory mags.

Or

Get a GSG-5 , A S&W MP-22, A colt .22 AR :rolleyes:

the original 10/22 was a decent rifle, but today with their plastic trigger group and so-so accuracy out of the box, they are not worth the $180 stores charge for them.

This is putting lipstick on a pig.

If Ruger shipped it with a factory 30 or 50 round mag that was reliable. THEN RUGER WOULD HAVE GOT IT!!!!

Have been included with all 10/22s for a little while now...

I'm not talking about conversions. Standard .22LR uppers have not proven to be "iffy" at all.

haha i find it funny that now ruger s&w and colt all make some type of an ar in .22lr (if u consider the sr-22 an ar type .22)

R.W.Dale

And how much is your average conversion upper with a couple of mags?

ArmedBear
September 21, 2009, 04:46 PM
Not a conversion, an upper, is about $500 as that thing is equipped.

I didn't say it's cheap, just that it's not an iffy proposition. They work quite well. Whether or not that's a good deal depends, mostly, on what you have in your lower. If you have a $200 buttstock and a $200 trigger, you get more bang for your buck than if you lower is bottom-end military style.

Well, given the similar price I tend to err on the side of owning another complete gun than just an upper.

As you can tell I want one for those M&P15/22's

I haven't ever bought a whole AR all at once.

I find it strange that people do, and stranger that they'd want a .22 lower that doesn't quite fit on a regular upper, given the option of interchangeable parts.

R.W.Dale
September 21, 2009, 05:26 PM
What's strange about it? All my uppers have dedicated lowers, there's no need to interchange.

I'd buy a complete rifle in a second when it's cheaper than a upper

As much as I try, I can't see the point of this rifle.

Don't get me wrong, I love my AR15, and I love my 10/22, but that's because one of them is POWERFUL and ACCURATE, and the other one is LIGHT and HANDY... this is neither.

Would somebody PLEASE tell Ruger that muzzle device LOOKS LIKE CRAP!

It doesn't "distinguish" their product... it DETRACTS from their product.

I bought a GSG-5, built a 10-22 target rifle, and I'll probably have to buy one of these, doesn't seem out of place at all to me either price wise or in the looks department.

For the price, I think I'd rather just have a good .22 upper.

Ruger 556 and now this, I'm thrilled to see Ruger finally embrace the politically incorrect rifle! Now if they'd make 20 or 30 round magazines for the Mini-30 I'd be totally happy!

Keep in mind that the SR-22 is really just a 10/22 with some add ons. You should be able to use all those cool 10/22 accessories.

Let me think!

SR/22 = getting to use cheesy toy 10-22 accessories

M&P15/22 = getting to use AR15-M4-M16 accessories


HMMMMMMMM! let me think:rolleyes:

Interesting, but if I wanted a .22 AR I'd get an actual AR like the S&W or Colt's M4-22

I can't see paying more than $350 tops for the SR22, despite my initial enthusiasm. Sub-$300 would be more reasonable and seems entirely realistic. I can see the appeal of the SR-22 for someone who already owns and likes a regular 10/22.

Price is way to high. My Marlin 60 shoots half inch groups at fifty yards and I've got less than two hundred into it with scope, and bipod. X

I'd rather have a good old remington 552, personally. I don't really see the attraction in making a rimfire tacticool.

I haven't ever bought a whole AR all at once.

I find it strange that people do

Why? I only paid $850 for a Complete Armalite M15 carbine. Wouldn't have saved but maybe $50, and I get a lifetime warranty from a great company.

IDENTICAL TO THE COLT M4 AR-15 CARBINE RIFLE IN EVERY WAY BUT BUILT FROM THE GROUND UP AS A .22LR CHAMBERED RIFLE. THIS IS THE M4 OPS MODEL WITH THE TACTICAL REAR SITE AS WELL AS THE FLAT TOP RECEIVER. VERY HIGH END. COMES WITH ALL YOU SEE HERE AND THE COLT NAME ASSURES LONG LASTING VALUE. THIS RIFLE IS A TRUE INVESTMENT. VERY AFFORDABLE TO SHOOT SO YOU CAN HAVE FUN SHOOTING AGAIN WITHOUT BREAKING THE BANK. VERY LIMITED SUPPLIES. COMES WITH ALL YOU SEE HERE NEW IN THE BOX......COLT-M4 OPS.........$559.95

Man, some of you people would whine if they hung you with a new rope.

How many times have we heard, "Ruger sucks because they don't make black rifles."

Now they're building black rifles and you STILL ain't happy. ;)

hehehe better take one of those Umarex/Colt M4/22's apart and look at the innards before you buy...wonder how long these things will last with normal usage?

I'm attracted to it. Not the flash hider but the fact that the barrel is threaded from the factory in 1/2x28, like most .22lr cans :)
Now if they'd just drop the price a few hundred $...
So given the fact that it's got the innards of a $180 rifle, that's a $450 kit.

all ruger is doing is using the nordic stock thats in the CTD catalog and a few parts from the SR556 (stock grip forend)

there are alot of guys that have done these conversions just check rimfire central

personaly i dont like nordics design because if i wanted a 22 AR id buy one that controls like an acctual AR

the tacticool 10/22 is a fun project tho but with ruger doing all the fun stuff for you i find it pointless

besides if i were to do this id go with the evolution stock from RB Precision it only accepts the buttstock form an AR and looks more like its own rifle rather than trying to imitate another design

Regarding conversions, bear in mind that you're going to also have to replace the barrel.

The twist ratio on the rifling of a .556 rifle is totally different than a .22LR. Your .22LR bullets are going to be hitting the paper sideways if they do at all.
