My dedicated .22lr AR upper



Log in to see fewer ads
The upper is the following:

Anderson slick side upper.
Spikes nickel plated bolt.
Lothar Walther match grade M4 profile 1/16 twist barrel.
Plain jane quad rail hand guard.
Nikon Buckmasters II 3-9x40 scope.

The lower is a Windham Weaponry SRC with the Magpul ACS stock and MOE grip.

Shoots very well at 25 yards. Have not yet done 50 yards.

Between the grip and the mag, that shiny metal thing is a Boonie Packer Better mag adapter that allows the use of Smith & Wesson MP15-22 mags with other brands of upper/lower ar22 setups. When you can get Smith mags for 11 bucks a piece, that adapter makes sense. I also have the ciener and Black Dog Machinery mags that I can use also.

This thing is a blast to shoot with all the ammo brands seen, but the Remington Golden gives me problems.

bwlevy---Very nicely done! I would stay away from the "Goldens" though... Can you share where you found Smith mags for $11? I could use a few more of the "short" (ten rounders). The Boonie Packer mag adapters work SO nice, don't they?

Very nice!

I ordered all the parts to build my dedicated 22LR AR last week. Hopefully I can start assembly in a week or two.

I was going to use the Anderson upper as you have but everywhere I looked they were sold out and Anderson does not show it on their web page any longer. So I used the DPMS slick sided upper instead. Here are the major components I am using.

Anderson Lower Receiver
Rise Armament RA-140 3.5# Trigger
DPMS Upper Receiver (Slick Side)
Target Master bolt group with CMMG Barrel Collar
Beyers 22LR 18.5", 1 in 16", Ultralight Target Barrel with A2 Flash Hider
Nordic 9" Slotted Free Float Handguard
M4 Collapsible Stock Assembly

My mistake, I have no idea why I wrote 11 dollars. They were 12.99 at www.gunmagwarehouse.com

Those Aero uppers are really nice.

I've got a CMMG SS conversion bolt and CMMG barrel in mine. The S&W mags are so much easier to use with the Better Mag adapter.

My better groups have been with hypervelocity type ammo. Remington Yellow Jackets or CCI Stingers. Haven't tried some of the newer Hyper-V Winchester ammo yet. Honestly haven't shot it too much lately.

Thanks bwlevy, I was actually looking at an upper without the dust cover. The Anderson I found and procrastinated about (it sold out) was half the price of the DPMS. The Anderson only had the shell deflector on the side where the DPMS has nothing. I have used the DPMS before and I am happy with it except for the price.

Just ordered a CMMG barrel/bolt combo to put on a flat top upper I happen to have! Waiting for it to show up. Right now I'm planning on putting on my CMP lower for testing, but I'm working on an 80% that will be it's permanent home. I have seen some with the 9mm short port cover and block installed, is that just a style thing or does it need a port cover at all?

I intend to use an Anderson upper with no FA or port cover. However, know that you will be able to see the back of the CMMG bolt through the open part of the ejection port when the bolt is closed. That doesn't bother me.

I think covering that gap why some people install the 9mm deflector.
