So I want to buy the 22lr conversion for my bushmaster target but would like to get some inside info from perhaps someone that has bought one already? Can you link me to the best place to get one? I found this site http://www.22lrconversions.com/atch-pg.htm that looks like it would work. Anybody out there bought one of these or something similar? Any insight would be great! Thanks!

This is what I got for Xmas, I've put about 400 rounds though it with no problems. Pretty accurate, I shoot open sights and could make about 2 inch groups at 50 yards with sandbags.

I'm considering one of these. How does it affect the gas tube? From what I have read, the gas tube stays clean of crud pretty much when you fire .223 because of the great preasure that flows down the gas tube. Is the presure from a .22lr strong enough to keep carbon from building up?

Haven't had mine for long but I haven't had any problems. AR15.com had a thread on this subject a while back. Most of the people that posted said the had there kits for years with no problems. They did recomend you shoot 1 or 2 .223 rounds after each .22lr session.

If there's anything in the gas tube it will get cleaned out pretty quick with the first few shots of .223.

Been following the ar15 thread for a while. Those mags look nice and you can't beat the price.

In December 2006 I ordered a Bushmaster .22 conversion for my B/M lower receiver. It took two months and several requests for assistance (which were promtly and politely answered) before I received the conversion. Due to weather, I didn't get to shoot the piece until late March. Immediately upon receipt, I cleaned the conversion, and examined the it and the lower for anything that might cause a malfuntion (I'm a retired Marine MasterGunnerySergeant, and I do know how to check a weapon for serviceability). My experience is the conversion makes an adequate $435 single shot plinker. Using B/M recommended ammo, the first misfeed occurred two rounds into the first mag load. I reloaded, tried again, and was only able to chamber and fire the first round. After about five attempts, I field-stripped and cleaned the mag, at which time a small tip at the mag base broke. I emailed B/M tech, and received no answer. I got hold of a tech, by landline; he had no suggestions, and told me to send the mag to AZ, where it was manufactured. To date, no replacement has been rec'd. As an aside, I ordered a spare mag, with the conversion, and haven't rec'd that, yet, either. Panzer sends

I had a 22 conversion kit once about 10 years ago. I loaned it to a fellow LEO for a Boy Scout trip and never got it back. I still have the mag inserts 7 of them out of 10. The insert is a single stack 22 mag that fits inside the 20 rnd AR Mags. I think the inserts hold 10 rounds.

Anyone have an idea which mfg made the conversion kit or if these mag inserts would work with a Ciener kit? I can take and post pics of the inserts if needed.
