Saw this for sale on GB (M16A1 clone, 18" barrel, .22lr) and it got me thinking that maybe when my prototype rifle is done, I might have to pick up a CMMG .22 drop in kit. Not sure if I can make the mags fit the prototype lower, but we'll see.



Lets see your retro .22 builds!

I'll play.

Left to Right: GUU-5/P with dedicated CMMG barrel / M16A2 again with a CMMG dedicated barrel and my 604 with a Ceiner kit.

Living in California we are able to bypass our restrictive assault weapons laws by making our center fire rifles into .22 rimfire guns – that is why I have a few ceiner/cmmg “drop in” kits around. Not to mention the price of .22 versus 5.56 makes it a fun day at the range.

Very nice, fastswift! Happen to have any experience with the colt .22 conversion kits? I've seen a few for sale, they seem to go for around the same price as CMMG kits, wondering what the pros and cons are with Ciener, CMMG, and Colt.

Most of my experience was with the Ceiner kits until CMMG dedicated uppers came around. Lots of information in the .22 forum - those guys have tried them all and are all very knowledgeable. I would go there and ask .

I like the Ceiner style because a buddy one free State over has a RR - and we can use my uppers with the ceiner sear trip – makes it a LOT of fun to shoot.

Thanks, I'll be sure to ask over there. But I still want to see more retro .22s

What's the deal with your lower? Looks like a A2 reinforced rear with a 601 front push pin.

Here's mine. Air Force .22 conversion, original retro colt barrel, 9mm upper and a Stag lower. One of my favorites to shoot

La, La, La... Da, Da, Da...[holding hands to ears and closing eyes]... Nope I don't see anything, nope, nope, nope.


Ok, maybe, I do see them .22s, but I will not build complete rifles...only uppers...I have too many ARs a it is

I was thinking M4 or GUU-5P, and 605 dissy style clone uppers. But my .22 guu build got killed when I found A COLT 723 barrel for a couple hundred bucks...

I think a 605 for iron sights will suffice,...to keep the USAF and m261 conversions cmpany. I will scope and put Red dots on the 10/22s with their better bore too sight distance

You all are SERIOUSLY not helping my self restraint...

Let me help a bit. Once you get a correct .22 build you start looking for other parts...such as this orginal Atchisson .22 magazine to finish off your build...its a whole new RBD variant

Speaking of retro .22's. Olympic has been making M261 .22 conversion kits. Compared to my Milsurp 261 kits they are dimensionally dead on and differ in only 3 details.

Better finish, tougher steel and a different extractor (which is an improvement IMHO)

I am not shilling for these guys or beholden in any way shape or form. I mention Oly's 261 kit because the originals have all dried up are a PITA to get a hold of without a time machine.

Dude, how does that shoot? I've been thinking about getting a CMMG kit for my 1/12 604.

How's the quality?I ask because, well, Oly isn't exactly known to be a tier 1 manufacturer.

It seems to shoot well. I've used it mostly for plinking so far, so I can't say for sure... But it seems much more accurate than when it was in my 1/9 barrel.
