.22 conversion accuracy question
 
Can someone give me an 'educated / from experience' answer regarding
the accuracy of the .22 drop-in conversion kits? I obviously know
they aren't going to be as accurate as a dedicated.

My friends and I are going to have a friendly .22 shoot-out contest and
I would like to use my AR with the conversion. But if that is going to be
putting me at a sizable disadvantage, I'd rather use my Marlin 60 or possibly
buy a dedicated upper.

Thanks

You'll spend that much on the 22lr upper!

My daughter has the M4 OPS and WE love it. (Well maybe everything but the pink Ergo grip!)

This shoots better than me!

Unless you have an old m16 surplus barrel like I have with a 1in12 twist the modern ar15 barrels at 1in9 are too fast for 22lr ammo for pin point accuracy. The newer barrels are fine with the drop in kits if your talking man sized practice targets but you really need a dedicated upper or a complete gun to get target grade accuracy if your wanting to shoot rings around peeps who are using dedicated rifles.

CDNN 2011-1 Catalog

its in their catalog at 369. this version of a dedicated 22lr is not made by colt it is actually made by a company called umarex for colt and colt puts their stamp on it.

gander mountain over in kenosha had a umarex/colt and a m&p22 i got to compaire em side by side and while i am a huge colt fan and dont care for a single S&W product i have to admit the m&p22 seemed to be a better product.

ive never personally fired either.

The Colt .22s, which are made by Walther not Umarex, are excellent. I've had the same experience as Cane except that Remington Golden Bullet doesn't feed well. But it doesn't feed well in the S&W either.

Seems to be a lot of negative talk online about these Colts but most from people who've never fired them. I love mine and chose it over the S&W, which no doubt works well too.

Thats not true i have one and it good i use it in my ar and its just as accurate as anything else Ive seen guys split playing cards with them at 50 feet with a drop in bolt carrier replacement just like mine and its allot lighter than carrying two uppers around for the money you really cant beat it Ive had pretty good luck with mine i bought it at the gun show last year

What gives? Why the GREAT price? Are you able to change the stock, forend, etc? Is it "Upgradeable"

Doubting Thomas
 
Here we set for several years with an M4 Bushmaster legal short barrel, a Ceiner .22LR conversion, 1 in 9 twist barrel and that thing is an absolute fly killer and tack driver....actually just plinking and having a great time popping cans, small rocks, paper targets and whatever.

It would be nice to have one of those .22LR uppers to stick on the M4 but I can buy a lot of bricks of .22 ammo for a long time with that much money and my grandkids love that M4....I am glad mine isn't F/A....
