My son and I are going to built an AR-15 with a 22.cal barrel. I want the upper to be complete. Does anyone have any recommendations we are using a RRA lower that we already have. I really dont want to use a convertion kit.


PS here are some pics we found when looking. They are pretty cool.







remember all of these are 22LR

model1sales.com sells an ar upper in .22lr made by CZ, personally i like the ciener conversion kit, i mean why buy a whole new upper when you can save money by buying the conversion kit, its accurate and doesnt require the barrel change. just my opinion im just a poor college student.

I had the ADCO .22LR conversion on my AR and was very happy with it. It was fun and accurate. If you buy one, they also throw in a ADCO Red Dot Optic. The upper is made by CZ, sold by Dillon and a few others.

You can get the Ciener Upper with a 30 round mag for about $200. A good deal too.

The reason I need the hole barrel is because I don't have any other barrel to put a conversion kit into. I pick up this lower the other day at the LGS for a great deal. When I brought it home the we thought it would be nice to have a 22lr for me and my son.

with the conversion you dont need the whole barrel. the 5.56./.223 barrel is compatible. i was hitting a 1.5 inch pipe sittin vertically at 100 yards easily. me and my dad were shooting 2 inch groups at 100 yards and take into consideration i am no sharpshooter.

What kit and ammo were you using.

I was having a rough time at 50 yards with a Ciener.

Thos pics that you posted show an upper with a Ciener conversion kit in them.

One pic has a smoke Black Dog Machine plastic mag and the other has a stock 30 round Ciener mag.

The barrels may be dedicated 22 but you can't tell that from a pic.

Federal 550 round value pack and remington subsonic .22lr. i had to move the elevation knob up like 3 clicks, havent been out in about 2 weeks but swapping from an ar carrier to the ciener i havent made any adjustments and it seems to be shooting fine. me and my dad are going out tomorrow to shoot some steel and i will take my ar as well as his and shoot some groups at 100 yards and post the targets on here.
