    "Just add 10/22"

    I'll have more photos of this kit and the assembled rifle shortly. Review in the pipeline.

    hey zak, what's the deal with the barrel. i can't tell from your pictures.

    is this right?: the barrel is a vanilla 10/22 barrel that interfaces with the regular 10/22 receiver, both of which sit inside the nordic parts, which in turn attach to the forearm.

    i guess what's making me question that is, what barrel do you have in those photos? is it common to find 10/22 barrels threaded same as 223 barrels?

    You drop in a 10/22 barreled action.

    I had a stock 10/22 barrel threaded 1/2-28, which fits AR-15 muzzle devices and common .22LR suppressors.

    Clearly that is an assault weapon, you can tell just by looking at it. Certain to terrorize little old ladies in the senate.

    How much would the full conversion be? i see that the kit offered does not include butt stock or flass suppressor.

    What trigger group are you using on that set up?

    I'm thinking I may do a rebuild on my 10-22.

    You can use the stock 10/22 trigger pack.

    Really, all you have to scrounge up is a stock, grip, and float tube. You can go the expensive route (see above) or just use a take-off CAR/A2, etc.

    Can you attach standard AR or flip-up sights?

    No comprender.

    For a trainer, why not just get a .22LR AR upper and make use of your favorite AR's existing high-end trigger, stock and grip upgrades with a quick, no-tools upper swap, all while maintaining the exact geometry and balance of the .223 if you want?

    By the time one has added the parts to this thing, the upper on an existing lower is more economical.

    There's nothing wrong with yet another way to pour money into a 10/22, but once you have spent hundreds of dollars on the perfect AR lower assembly, why not leverage that?

    EDIT: Oh... It seems you have a tax stamp on the 10/22. That's a damn good reason... :)

    I like it. I have built my son something similar but his component set-ups are not as high end and no suppresor.

    I have been debating the suppressor and buying a few more 10/22s. The platform is easy to work with and with the right set up obtains decent accuracy.

    I wanted to just get a suppressed match barrel but understand that swaping one back and forth between guns means go to jail.

    That's sure one good reason to do an AR build instead. The lower receiver has the serial number.

    So far, I'm liking my .22LR upper, far better than I've ever liked the 10/22, one way or another.

    suppressors themselves (even in the case of integrally suppressed barrels) are normally registered, not the rifle (unless you're talking about SBR or FA). so you can move a suppressor from one rifle to another legally.

    Ah. In that case there's no reason I can think of to build one of these as an AR trainer, especially if you have a $200 trigger and a $200 buttstock already on an AR lower.

    A .22LR upper costs $475 built, and comes with the foreend, threaded barrel, etc. No need to add a 10/22, or anything else.

    Interesting...

    But I doubt there's much accuracy advantage compared to what folks do to their Ruger 10/22s sans the AR-15 goodies. I'd angle for the .22 Rimfire AR conversion if I was that bent on a rimfire AR.

    I got some bad info then. I need to go back and relook it.

    Let's see for $475 I can get a 10/22, match barrel, AR style stock, improved bolt, several magazines, inexpensive scope and a few other add-ons and have a whole different gun.

    I think if I was married to the AR platform a little more I might go the AR way. But I only have a couple and mostly use them to keep sharp when we are not shooting much at work.
