Dedicated 22 uppers.
 
I dont know if this belongs in rimfire but I'll take a chance, mods move it if you see fit.

I am looking to buy a dedicated 22 upper for an AR that takes the same mags as my Sig 522... So that would be the same black dog mags as the ceiner and cmmg conversions. I am planning on building a .22 dedicated AR platform. I dont even own one in .223 so I am going to start from scratch.

Who makes such an upper? Is the cheaperthandirt Velocity Firearms upper compatable? Is 400 a rip off?


Thanks, Zac

S&W .22LR AR for $449 on Gunbroker

You be the judge if that $400 was a good deal

Ah, but I want to be able to thow a .223 upper on it... I already have a sig 522 for a true 22 toy... I want to build something I can throw the bigger rounds throgh as well.

I am not buying anything from cheaperthandirt.. i simply used them as a handy price reference since I had one here.

I have the Colt Umarex M4 OPS and have found the mags NOT interchangeable with other makes.

Ok, so let me get this straight. :confused: You already have a Sig 522. Now you want to build an AR, but in .22LR, so that you can have the ability to swap a .223 upper on it when you want to? :confused:

So if you already have the Sig, why would you want to build the AR into another .22?

Why not build it as a dedicated .223/5.56, and if need be, buy a CMMG conversion or one of the others for it? That way, at least you would have expanded your available options.

You sure you're not just finding a way to spend money? http://i695.photobucket.com/albums/v...tumbleweed.gif

I despise .223... but I dont want to limit myself to .22 if the need be. And I dont want my .22's bouncing down a .223 barrel, though little occurs... I would rather have a dedicated upper.

And yes, I need something to blow money on.

So you despise .223, want to blow money on a .22 upper, but already have your Sig 522 dedicated .22 Toy.

So tell me again why you would want ANOTHER .22, even if it is in the shape of an AR? :confused:
