    Which 22lr conversion kit for the AR15 is recommended? I see CMMG as the popular brand. Any other manufacturer I should consider?

    Thanks

    I went with the CMMG. I just couldn't beat the price. Tactical Industries make one for less money, but not near as good.

    CMMG ALL THE WAY.

    i know a lot of people running their conversions for cheap plinking and they run great. i decided against a 10/22 and instead built a .22lr AR using a cmmg bolt and barrel. it cycles everything i have put through it, I even ran cci quiet through it once with no problems

    does the CMMR conversion have a LSHO feature? I'm seeing mixed reviews on YT.

    I came across this additional metter-mag S&W adapter that allows the use of SW mp15-22 magazine and has LSHO.

    sorry i just saw this, to answer your question, yes and no. the CMMG bolt and mag work together to keep the bolt open after the last shot is fired, (the follower protrudes out of the feed lips and stops the bolt from going forward. However, the standard bolt catch is not engaged by the stock cmmg bolt or mag. so the manual of arms is as follows:

    -last round is fired and ejected
    -the cmmg magazine's follower holds the bolt open allowing you to see that the magazine and chamber are empty.
    -release the empty magazine and the bolt goes forward
    -insert loaded mag and use the charging handle to load the rifle

    the better mag made by redi-mag allows the use of S&W m&p mags which also use the standard bolt catch.

    however, as much as i love my cmmg .22lr rifle, if tippmann arms was selling their .22 rifles when i built it, i would own one of them instead. and yes, that is tippmann the paintball gun company, they started out a long time ago making rimfire firearms.

    Here's a thread I can get into!

    My favorite gun of mine to shoot is my Ruger Blackhawk 44mag--when I can afford it! I have a GP100 I load 38s for and shoot IDPA with. Next in line is probably my Glock 20. From there, I have several rifles I like to shoot. Only two ARS--a 5.56 rifle and a 300blk pistol.

    The only ammo I have that I worry about the age on is 17 HMR as it tends to get split necks after a few years

    I miss mine. It was a blast (so to speak) to shoot. Like you said, expensive fun.

    I used to have one too (the Super Blackhawk). Economic hard times forced me to part with her.
