Hi all. So today I ran the CMMG Stainless Evolution .22 conversion kit in my LMT, at a local indoor range and I was pleasantly surprised. The accuracy was as good as it gets, for what it is. Obviously this is not going to be match grade...LOL!!! But I was shooting at those Birch Casey 8" or so round targets at about 40'.....the splatter ones and I was grouping within about 2"-3" and that is standing, no rest and firing fairly fast. But I got inside the round every time, so easy with the zero recoil.

What was great was I did these drills where I would have the gun at the ready, facing ahead of course.....and then swiftly bring it up to the shoulder, acquire the target with the red dot and fire. I did this over and over....almost working out on the red dot, more than anything else. It eventually was becoming instinctual and I loved that I could practice different things...for CHEAP......and when I go out next time with the full size weapon, I will be that much more on top of it. Just firing the weapon is good, even though it's a squib of a load....handling the actual gun and not a regular 10/22 or a polymer .22 AR..... MY gun. Not saying anything derogatory about those guns at all. I'd love a nice set up 10/22 with a 'scope on it and a stainless heavy barrel...... if they make such a thing.

Picked up some snap caps and some Hornady Zombie 5.56 ammo.

Dang my gun is dirty though.....major clean up ahead tonight.

Thanks you guys.

It is. My memory is selective and ...wishful at times. Is still think its a nice add-on though.

My LMT has a straight gas tube...this one has the usual bend in it, I may not be able to use it.
