.22 conversion

that wouldn't be very accurate, being that you're still using a barrel bored to .223

22 conversion kit

22 Long rifle is .223 in size and it works with a 223 barrel just fine.

22LR/.223

.22 LR has a diameter of .222, while the .223/5.56 has a bullet diameter of .224. It will not win any marksmanship awards, but it will work for a short range subsitute for the more expensive full size round.

Nitris why not

If it was me I would buy a Ruger 10/22 and spend another 100 bucks dressing it up to look like a AR. That way your AR15 in 5.56 is complete and the Ruger would be ready to rock and be as accurate as it should be.

Agree with Hillbilly

Get a 10/22 and a stock upgrade. Logs sweet and no worries.

Thanks guys but

I just wanted to take one of many AR's to the range shooting cheaper ammo. I have a lot of 22's weapons and many ruger 10/22s, just looking for a cheaper way to have fun with the AR's. So pretty much no one has tried this?

yep

I'm with Hillbilly, I almost bought a 22 kit then decded to just save up for a 10/22. Whats the point of having a AR that shoots 22 inaccuratly?
On the other hand I may buy a 22 kit for my glock 17 but thats a new barrel and all diffrent story all together.

Atchison Ciener

I have a Ciener conversion for my AR,it works great along with some BLACK DOG 27 round magazines(about 30 bucks a peice)I have an ADCO red dot 1 by magnifacation zeroed at 65 yards with the .22 caliber,center mass,head shots all day long on Florida law enforcement silhouette targets.Very accurate.The .223 shoots around 6 inches high and 2 inches left of the .22 zero at 65 yards.At a 100 yards the .22 is about 6 inches low,and the .223 is around 12 inches high and 4 inches left.For the range and lots of plinking using your AR,you can't go wrong with it,and thats a pretty good price for it.550 rounds of federal .22=$13 bucks,40 rounds of .223=$18 to $20 bucks,you do the math.It pays for itself.There's a pic on my profile with the BLACK DOG magazine in my AR.Keep the weapon clean everytime you get back from the range due to the carbon fouling caused by the .22 caliber,and don't use them sorry Remington gold bullets,their filthy as hell.Don't waste your money on the 30,or any extra 10 round mags from Ciener,they ugly up a rifle,the BLACK DOG mags are full body like a mil spec .223 mag.Get the conv.kit,you'll be happy.
