    I had a fantastic weekend shooting a parts bin AR 15 with a CMMG stainless 22lr conversion.

    I had 15 magazines each of which held about 23. <the amount that could be packed in there seemed to vary>

    we shot about 1100 rounds of federal 550, and not one, not ONE jam. <except when one of the guys brought out a box of remington golden bullets, ALL of them jammed till we gave up after about 20 rounds>

    We had a blast, really had a excellent time doing little shooting while moving drills, rapid reloads from a back pocket, shooting prone, kneeling, etc.

    Just an absolute blast.

    I could not recommend this product any higher, completely surpassed my expectations. I belive, in fact I KNOW it is the most reliable 22lr I own.

    For 30 bucks worth of ammo, we had an entire day of fun.

    The ruger 10/22s sat in their cases all day which was kind of sad.

    We also shot 100 rounds of 223 but really everyone was having just as much fun with the 22lr as they were with the 223.

    Kids, wives, and the guys had a blast. Could not be happier.

    Oh and, an AR gets VERY dirty after 1100 rounds of 22lr. I may have to find a better cleaning tool to make the cleaning easier and get the patches into the little creaks and crevices.

    Just wanted to post a little review.

    I have a Ciener drop in conversion and it functions great. It is a blast to go through the pistol range with an AR. As you said, the price/fun factor of these little conversion kits is basically unbeatable. I highly recommend it to everyone I know with an AR and every single one of the people who have shot mine at the range has ordered one within a month of using mine.
    One fun thing you might consider, I have an aimpoint on mine zeroed for .556 and after I zeroed in with the 22lr in it I engraved a small line on the elevation turret where the 22 is zeroed. now when I drop in my conversion, I just spin it to the mark and I am ready to go while the true zero is for .556.

    The CMMG is a complete .22 upper, right?

    UPDATE: Looks like it's actually a conversion kit. Good to hear it works so well.

    That is what I did with my primary arms aimpoint clone. But really I leave the red dot sighted in for the 22lr and keep the irons sighted for the 223.

    But like you say I could just spin it round and it would be ready up.

    Cant beat it.
