Anyone have any suggestions on a lower to use for a .22LR SBR build? Yes, I know any lower works just fine, but I am looking for something a little unique. If possible, I would like to have it marked as a .22LR too.

This will be a dedicated .22LR lower, so it will have a Nib coated hammer, buffer plug, etc...

Thanks!

Just no bayonet practice.

ETA: Sorry, missed that you would SBR it. You might do a aluminum 80%, and engrave it for .22"LR. Or there's this:

That would hold up to bayonet practice, & add a bit of weight to your .22"LR build.

Have you looked into the billet receivers that are available?

I don't think anyone currently makes on marked 22LR. Spikes made some a few years ago. You might be able to find a used one.

You could also have the 22LR marking added when you do the sbr engraving.

Tactical Machining has a 22 LR marked lower, currently listed as out of stock. Stag makes a 22 LR marked lower for the Connecticut market. They do list it as a tactical lower half, ban compliant for CT. Call stag and see if they will sell it out of state as a stripped receiver. In CT., we cannot buy it as a stripped receiver.

If you're going to SBR it you'll have to have you info & the caliber engraved on it anyway, so just find s lower marked "multi" that you like,I just got finished with a 40 S&W and 300 blk SBR and that is what I did.

APG Arms used to make a .22lr marked SBR lower. You might give them a call to confirm if they still make one.

Apparently lowers headed to the People's Republic of Connecticut have to be marked .22"LR. Might sniff around for AWB compliant lowers.
