Just got this Spike's .22LR upper and 6 BDM full size Ciener mags. I set the upper up to closely match my 12.5" 6.8SPC setup. Spike set up the barrel a bit too long, but it's close enough for government work (as the saying goes).

I put a little Slip2000 EWL on the Ciener rails and hand cycled the bolt about 50 times. Then I ran 180 rounds through the upper across all 6 mags. No mag or upper related failures at all - just one round that failed to ignite (probably the ammo). Shot Aguila 38gr copper washed. Single ragged hole at 20 yards (indoor pistol range) shooting off a bipod.

I'll be cutting the mag springs by 1" as suggested by BDM. Right now, it's very hard to load more than 22-23 rounds into the mags.

What a great combination - I'll be shooting this thing like crazy over the winter.

Sweet Brown Gravy!!!!!!

That's beautiful if it were a 5.56/6.8/etc. and simply amazing that it's a dedicated .22!!!!!

Unreal man, very nice,

NICE, do you have to get the "Paperwork" on a .22 SBR or just Fullbore.

You do need a registered SBR lower for any short barrelled upper. However, you can swap uppers off a single SBR lower all day long. In any case, I have a dedicated SBR lower pending.

IOR 1.1-4x26 CRT with illuminated CQB reticle. Great scope with a very useful reticle, IMHO.

Here's an updated photo of my Spike's Tactical upper on a dedicated SBR lower (top), as well as my 6.8SPC SBR for comparison. Both muzzle devices are Surefire QD suppressor adapters.
