    Besides the typical magpul and other furniture, what else can you do to .22 AR's?

    Wow I don't even know where to Start,...triggers, optics, iron sights, lights, Extended Mags,..Foregrips of all types,...improved barrels,..pretty much just about every thing you'd do with any Centerfire AR,...I have even seen exchangeable knobs for a scope based on 3 bullet weights,..(BSA Sweet 22)...The S&W MP-15/22 is about the best Dedicated example of a Rimfire AR,..with the Mossberg somewhat behind, but only because of the "Blockiness" of the rear portion of the stock. A good alternative for folks with more then one AR already is to get a Complete 22LR Upper like the CCMG,..

    I know about the basic stuff: flips ups, iron sights, grips, optics and that **** like I said "basic furniture". I already have most of the basics. I'm just having fun with this till I finish my big boy build (the built spikes lower receiver under the .22)

    Well you can start with the Colt/Walther M4-22! It's a great option instead of S&W or Mossberg as it looks and feels much more like the real thing. I'm not knocking the S&W, internally it's more like an AR, at least the FCG (which means upgraded triggers are an option.)

    Well I already have the S&W. I wanted to put a spikes zombie lower on it but I don't see that as being possible

    Sorry, the S&W upper and other dedicated uppers won't work on a real AR lower. But as has been mentioned there are .22lr uppers designed to pin on a true AR lower. Of course they cost as much as the S&W M&P15-22

    Yeah I tried putting my .22 upper on my Spikes lower. Didn't work. But I'm not gonna get a dedicated .22 upper just for it. That's why I got the M&P15-22 to begin with

    I put a CMC single stage 3.5 lb trigger in mine and it like a whole other rifle.

    $185. It makes shooting very fast and the reset is so short. After putting this one in the 15-22 I picked up a Timney 3lb for my full-size M&P15. Another very solid trigger.

    My 15-22 is scoped and shoots any thing I put in it, the accuracy is acceptable for a plinker out to 100 yards....My DPMS dedicated .22 lr rifle will accept most AR accessories and has the correct weight and operation of an m-4. The DPMS uses a standard lower but the upper is dedicated and the good thing is a 1/16 twist for the rimfire ammo, much better than trying to stabilize them in a standard AR 1/7 barrel. Both rifles are almost more fun than shooting cans and dirt clods are allowed to be, throw in a .223 AR ( or two---or five.... or more) to maximize the shooting experience.

    It won't make any difference other that trapping dirt. As to how, threading the muzzle if the barrel size allows, or putting on an external shroud.

    I have close to twenty AR's including a DPMS dedicated .22 llr and my 15-22. I try to keep the rifles light as my old muscles groan a with every bit of weight that I add to the rifle. With that in mind the 15-22 (Magpul edition) sometimes wears an Eotec, sometimes a 1x4.5 scope but most often open sights ....and the soda cans and dirt clods just melt in front of it's devastating fire. I keep it simple for MY fun, others will gain fun in other ways but the 15-22 is always there to do it's part.

    I really don't see the point of a silencer on a 22lr. Using CCI standard velocity ammo I can hear the bolt hitting the stop on my 10/22. I might add the 10/22 isn't as noisy.
