    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.

    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

    $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.


    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)

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

    ArmedBear Well-Known Member

    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
