OK i was talking to someone the other day and was suprised when i heard him say the Ar could be converted to 40 S&W( same as my glock)
what are all the calibers that it can be converted to readily, not custom work.
and what it takes, swap an upper and a mag or what?

9mm
223/5.56
.308
.458
.50 beowolf
.50 BMG
.40?
what else?

.22 PPC, 6 PPC same blt as the 7.62 x 39, but without the case taper! Graet for heavy bullet .224 loads which fit in the magazine.

MartyW posted this in a thread of mine last year

Have done/developed
458 SOCOM
358 CQB
338 Spectre
308 Sabre
500 Phantom

7.62x25 Tokarev
45 ACP

Have worked on a 300 Whisper to make it a little more quiet and portable

Currently have a test mule in a custom proprietary round (not mine) - Tony R has seen it (and has his doubts, as do I)

Starting development for another customer for an entirely new cartridge - sure it will hurt

Waiting on small batch of custom brass for another project, but this one might not fly after all

Have more brass sitting here for one more project once I get some free time

Rounds out there that have been done in AR-15

Is there any other platform that can claim the same list?

I doubt it!

.25 WSSM

Surprising, but I don't think I saw either of these common rounds listed...

But I have seen AR10's converted to shoot .243 (Which is just a necked down .308), and I remember seeing an article on a .30-06 AR in shotgun news a while back.

There is the .260 remington that i own from dpms.
Link Posted: 8/24/2006 4:30:45 PM EDT
do handgun rounds in the AR have any real accuracy?
also anyone know where i could get a 40 S&W upper for my AR?
or maybe a 22 for a real plinker
maybe ill skip the whole 223 thing and go for 22 for plinkin and a 50 for fun!
