    Anybody else having fun with a dedicated .22LR AR? This pretty much pegs my fun meter and it's a great way to get some low cost/high volume training.:D

    Despite my collection of AK's my S&W M&P15-22 is a riot to take to the range and damn cheap to shoot.

    I don't have a dedicated .22 upper but I DO have a CMMG conversion BCG that see's far more action than the .223 one does. It hit's close enough to point of aim with the Eotech and .22's that it just about makes plinking cans boring. Put the dot on it, squeeze, and watch the can jump. My only problem with it is that after grinning so hard at the range, my face starts to hurt.....

    Thumbs Up!!!

    My M&P 15/22 is hoot to shoot. Haven't decided to stay with the propoint that I originally put on it. It is amazingly accurate.

    I'm also a fan of the S&W M&P 15-22.

    The gun paid for itself in a couple months in .223 ammo saving. Plus it's a ball to shoot.:D

    A friend of mine bought a TacSol upper and has been tickled pink with it. I shot it a little and it works great. Accurate enough for plinking or varmints and a lot cheaper than .223.

    Yip, I chose the CMMG conv kit so I can swap it out between my M4gery and heavy bbl varmint/target rig. It shoots tiny little groups at 50yrds with Wolf MT in my Target Rig!

    FUN!

    Didnt have the money for a whole upper, so I got mine in pieces. Got the conversion first, a Ciener, because oly was dragging their butts with their M261 clones and Spikes and CMMG weren't making theirs yet. After a couple paychecks, I got the bbl from KKF - possibly the only rimfire dissipator bbl he made. Then came the flat top M1S 9mm upper and the few parts I didn't have already such as the delta ring and detents.

    My rimfire AR15 probably gets the most rangetime. I say probably because I rebuilt my AMT hardballer into a dedicated .22 as well. They put the fun back in rimfire:D

    Well I can give a thumbs up for the Colt/Walther M4 .22LR, great little rifle! Looks like there are a lot of good choices out there.

    My Sig 522 was probably the best decision I have made and best investment to date regarding firearms. It's comfortable, rock solid reliable and accurate, Primary Arms M3 multi reticle which is awesome in itself, and it's ready to rock. I prefer to shoot it more than any other in my collection.

    I have the SIG 522.
    Keep an eye on the recoil spring rod, spring and end clips. The clips are being beat up. If your recoil rod has one end tapered, it's the old (bad) rod. Call SIG and they will send you the new rod (both ends look the same), spring and clips.

    Two here; SW MP15-22 and a Plumcrazy lower/Blackthorne 22 upper. Of the two, can't tell you which one I prefer....except that the SW mags are easier to load.

    Thnx for the info. I did the research before I bought it and I've got an updated one, born in April. Never had the first trouble out of it, not 1 malf.
