Different Upper Assemblies

Log in to see fewer ads
I purchased a M4-22 Elite L in late 2018 and since that time I've shot it more than any other firearm I own. I am very impressed with its features and quality. My hat is off to Tippmann Arms for producing what I consider to be the finest .22 rimfire clone of the AR-15/M4 to ever enter the market.

I enjoy shooting my Elite with a variety of sighting systems; metallic sights (Ultradyne C4 aperture sights), a red dot, a 1x6 variable and a 4x16 variable scope. What I don't like is having to dismount the scopes and red dot from the upper receiver every time I want to swap out sighting systems. The scopes and red dot are in quick detachable mounts and that's an okay solution, but once I get a scope or red dot mounted and sighted in, I much prefer to leave it alone.

So, my question is this: What are the chances that Tippmann would offer complete upper assemblies so I could permanently mount a given sighting system to an upper so all I would have to do is swap uppers when I want to make a change?

Just to be clear, I fully understand that Tippmann M4-22 uppers ARE NOT compatible with mil-spec AR-15/M4 lowers and can't be used with them. These uppers would only be suitable for use on Tippmann M4-22 lowers.

Excellent idea!

Now that Tippmann is offering different barrels, (light weight, fluted) I would buy a couple complete uppers.

Like above, I find myself grabbing the M4-22 more than anything else. Especially with the availability and price of 22lr right now.
