I have the RRA Entry tactical AR15. I enjoy the range time i get with it. We are all aware of the ammo situation. I am looking into Conversion kits with .22Lr. From experience, does anyone have some suggestions. I am aware of that .22 is not the strongest caliber, I am just seeking some more recreational time with it at a cost effective rate. I am currently interested in the CMMG kit with the full size AR type mags. Any critical advice in terms of reliability, cost, durability? thanks

thanks for the link
Np, I see them online avg about $190, Bass Pro Shop has them in stock for just under $200, and I saw two different models at the gun show this weekend one was $150 and the other $170 but nothing on the packaging said anything about the difference one was black and the other a silver/chrome so I need to look into it more.

The CMMG stainless 22lr conversion is good kit. Gave one to my brother for his birthday. I use a CMMG dedicated 22lr upper. In my experience they perform best with CCI Mini-Mags, but Federal Spitfires worked well too.

i just took the plunge on a CMMG alpha kit.

Once it gets here and i get it to the range a new report will be in the rimfire section!

Awesome that would be appreciated, I'm in the process of working out the details on a kimber 1911 .22 conversion slide kit right now with a member here so that's coming first for me.
