Do they even exist?

The dedicated barrels will have a 1:16 twist which is an appropriate twist rate for .22lr.

Dedicated barrels can be ordered from several places including CMMG, Midway, and Browenells.

Exactly the reason why I bought a dedicated .22lr upper rather than going with a conversion kit.

Depends on what you are shooting. I figured it was obvious I'm looking for a 1/9 to shoot 60gr SSS rounds. Guess not.

Why not just use a conversion, then?

No, I don't think it was obvious. A lot of people don't realize that 1:9 is too fast for most .22 and he was trying to steer you right.

I run a Ciener kit in an old 1:9 stainless match barrel that I hacksawed down to 9". It shoots pretty well even with bulk pack ammo - 2" groups at 50 yards are no problem. I was surprised.
