i didn't know they had .22 uppers. i bought a 5.56mm upper last year and i can't say enough good about it. fulton my hijack parts and slap their own name on them, but they sold me some very high quality stuff. i am VERY interested in this thread now.

They were using Rick Kuehl's barrels a while back. As a matter of fact, they were selling the Kuehl barrels on closeout and I scored one for the parts drawer. Whether they are still using Kuehl barrels or not, I don't know. If you get one, let us know how it turns out.

I've heard it was the other way around, that they were making them for Keuhl....??

I've got one and like it. Looks like a modified Ciener system with the 22lr chambered barrel.

I've only shot it offhand at 25 yards and rather informally but was pleased with accuracy. I can't be any more specific.

Worked with three different ammo types, Wolf, Remington and CCI.

I've not handled any other 22lr upper, but this one is same quality as any other top brand 5.56 upper I own.

When I bought it, the Fulton Armory guys called it a "Kuehl barrel". I had heard that Rick bought the blanks and had Lakeside do the machine work to interface with the Ciener kit.

I guess the point is moot anyway because Kuehl is on his last run of barrels.

A shame it isn't their "Mirage" style with a front sight, or I'd most likely jump on it. I'm looking for a .22LR complete upper that I can stick on my existing lower, but I want one that's comparable to my current upper (20" A4 HBAR, although A2-style is fine too because then I don't need to buy a rear sight - I shoot mostly iron sights anyway, and the .22 would be for close-range plinking).

The Mirage is almost what I'm looking for, too bad it's so expensive. If they made a "standard" version that wasn't match-grade, that'd probably be perfect.
