Some years ago there was, unless I am mistaken, an 22lr AR which was sold with what was basically a standard AR lower. Anyone recall this and have any info?

The CMMG uppers and conversion kits work with standard AR lowers. They probably sell a complete 22 rifle too. I've always used them instead of getting proprietary stuff like the M&P15-22.

Chiappa, at least made an upper. I owned one for awhile.

Colt Conversion kit and a M-261 kit both work with a standard lower.

I must have 20 of the 261 inserts stashed.

IIRC, back (10 years or so ago) when Spike's Tactical sold .22LR uppers and conversion units, they also sold a complete ST-22 rifle.  Feel free to correct me if I'm not remembering correctly.

DPMS made a dedicated 22LR upper that worked with standard lowers.  I believe they sold them as uppers and complete rifles.

This is correct. You can use a complete ST-22 .22 LR upper on a standard AR lower with the “CMMG-style” magazines. As someone else mentioned, I like this idea better than a proprietary option like the M&P 15-22.
