Have seen .22 LR conversion kits for AR 15's. Do they make .22 Magnum
conversion kits as well?
I'd be surprise if anyone geared up for it. 22lr wasn't designed as a semi auto round and the 22mag is longer and doesn't feed reliably. That's why you see 22mag semi autos come and go.The round is too long and too narrow to feed perfect.
Besides there is the 5.7.It's a little faster and about the same energy,but the case design makes it feed better Or the 17s
Makes sense. BYW hows the water workin'?
What water? You mean the snow I melt?
It's kinda fun melting snow to take a bath
Meter's frozen and it may happen tomorrow.I will be in the office ,you can bet on that
I thought you just did snow angels like a Polar Bear.
here you go.
I'd like to see that 22wmr run a few mags
And they are priced like a whole new gun
There are reviews on rimfire central, reliability seems to be good built with green mountain barrels.
Well, something I've not seen yet; what about the price of ammo???
$15 / 50 round box so it would be cheaper to go with a 9mm conversion. Get reloads and it's almost half the cost of .22wmr's.
And there are a few good 9mm conventions out there. IronMonster seems to love his 9mm's.
Just a thought...
9mm is a fun gun but not 100yrd squirrel/coyote gun.
Is that the purpose? I hadn't seen that in the thread anywhere.
Kind of cool, but not for that price.
What would you suppose a guy would want a 22wmr upper for? Defense?
We all like to point out different stuff that could be cheaper but sometimes a certain caliber isn't replaced by something that is just cheaper.I never even thought of a 9mm upper cause it has a completely different use than a 22wmr. Now maybe a 17hmr could replace it
Or maybe a 556 upper would be cheaper and the ammo not too much cheaper.
Anyway,someone buy one and give us a range report
I don't even have an AR so it can't be me
I'd love to have a 22WMR upper. I am a huge fan of the round and have always wanted an AR platform to spit them out of. This might be something I purchase this summer when business picks up.
I guess I'm just not experienced enough to find a reason for it.
I'd take a lever action over the bolt I have but simi-auto never occurred to me as something someone would want. The bolt action has done everything I've needed it too.
If you need a simi-auto varmant gun then I'd like to be on the edge of that field!
Somewhere in the world a Ruger SR 762 feels neglected.
Tbh I'd toy with the idea, but I doubt I'd ever get around to doing a range report if I got one.
Damn you caught that huh?
How could I not? It felt ignored.
