Dedicated .22 upper build for Wife
So I have built several AR 15 uppers (.223, 300blk) and I want to build a dedicated .22 upper for the wife.
I already have a complete lower and a upper receiver from Palmetto State Armory.
I am trying to understand what additional parts i need. I also have the DD FF rail for her,
I am looking into purchasing one of the following options
.22lr bolt/conversion kit
With option 2 will a .22lr conversion kit work for a bolt or do I need something else.
Also do I need the special cmmg charging handle?
What else am i missing. I already have the mags,
Well Archplanner, I hope your wife is either very understanding or doesn't read your post above, quote:
"I want to build a dedicated .22 upper for the wide."
You like to live life on the edge!
fixed also added additional question
You will need the 1st option. It will come with the bolt. Unless you already have a .22 bolt, the 2nd option will not help you.
Do I need a special charging handle?
You can get the anti jam charging handle but I have yet to have a CMMG set up that needed one. Those were made for other manufacturers kits that were prone to throwing empties into the charging handle.
For $100 more, you got a upper receiver, anti jam charging handle, free shipping, factory warranty. I'd go with CMMG UPPER M4LE .22 16" PENCIL Barrel
or CMMG UPPER M4LE instead of option 1.
I am particular about my guns and only want to use matching upper/lowers. I have several PSA lowers that need builds.
Thats why the two options I laid out only were parts and not complete uppers.
Thanks for the suggestion
