Ideas for Form 1 SBR .22?



Log in to see fewer ads
I am going to do a form 1 and just wanted to see if there were any ideas out there that I hadn't thought about before I commit a receiver.

My plan has been to do a Ruger Charger to Backpacker conversion.

Any other ideas out there that might make for a more fun short can gun experience? TIA.

I SBR’d an AR-15 lower so I can run a .22 pistol upper on it. Load up the Blackdog Machine drum and you can run the entire drum and only hear the action cycle and the bullet hitting the target.

Pull 2 pins and swap a 9mm pistol upper and an endomag mag conversion and now it is an SBR 9mm.

Pull the same two pins and swap to a 300BLK pistol upper and a different mag.

Then I can swap to a .223 wylde pistol upper.

1 SBR’d lower can do quite a bit and being able to run suppressed makes it more fun.

But I have thought about taking a charger and doing an SBR just because .

I went with a Ruger Charger and an arm brace. No need to SBR it. No need to ask permission to travel with it.
It is a solid performance gun that is a load of fun to shoot.

I short barreled a couple AR lowers. I keep a dedicated CMMG 22 upper on one. Also did a Ruger 10/22 back in June.

Both cheap and fun to shoot.

If I were to do another it would be an S&W 15-22.

If you stamp a standard AR lower you'll have a lot more options of uppers you can put on it.

How about a Stoeger Luger, with a longer barrel and a small forestock, and a detachable holster/stock. Ala an Luger Carbine.

I also went with the real AR-15 lower with a upper I put together with a CMMG 4.5" barrel and a 7" handguard. The SilencerCo Sparrow just sticks out enough to grab and remove for cleaning.

I've added a vertical grip since this pic was taken. It is the THE most popular gun on the range when I bring it out to let people have some fun.

I also keep a pistol lower handy if I want to leave the state and don't have time to file a form 20 with the ATF.
