I want the complete upper, but I don't know which brand to get, or where to find it. Maybe my search fu is weak, but I couldn't find one on the EE, much less some other site.

Which brand is the most reliable?

This is a very good question

I could not be more pleased with my .22 upper from Spike's.....this thing goes with me everytime I shoot. Indoor and outdoor,it is great to shoot an AR and not break the bank.

I like my TacSol but lots of others like Spikes, CMMG and others are fantastic as well.

You can look further here.

I bought a complete CMMG upper...and returned it.  It refused to function with CCI and Fed bulk.

I've heard nothing but great about Spikes.  If I try again it will be that unit.

I will add that the Spike's upper is kinda picky about ammo,but mine eats that Fed bulk pack like candy. I clean it about every 550 rounds or so.
You will not regret buying one of these...(I held off on another pistol to get mine and I shoot it more than any handgun I own)....way too much fun.

Spikes, i've been considering one. My friends has been flawless, I can't say the same about my ciener kit.

Why not a conversion kit?

These allegedly kick major ass:http://www.compasslake.com/22uppers.htm

try the rimfire and pistol calber section of the ar15 section.
this question has be dealt with for years.  think the consensus if that spike's is the best.

Something about the barrel twist on a 5.56 barrel making them inaccurate. That, and I have an Adams Arms piston kit on mine. Not sure how that's going to work on a .22 kit. I guess I should ask huh?

I just got a Spikes conversion kit. I will post an AAR on how accurate it is in my 1:7 twist barrels when I get a chance to take it out.

Does anyone know how accurate these conversion kits are witha  1:9 barrel? I've got it all in the cart and I'm ready to pull the trigger.
I just want to make sure it's not going to be minute-of-buick

I've got a Spike's ST22 complete upper and I love it, for all of the reasons posted above.  I have put a couple thousand rounds through it so far and it has paid for itself already.

Okay, I bought a CMMG kit w/3 26 Rnd BlackDogMags today @ the G-Show.  It does work.

Also bought a laser boresighter which is right on.

All to save 5.56 ammo.
