R,

Yoou can buy a whole gun for damn near that price if you buy the Smith 15-22. Around 450 if I remember corrrectcly.

Your probably right OM. Although a concern of mine would be to have a rifle that mimicked my NM rifle as close as possible. The one BE suggested seems very attractive:

I'll have to see what it takes to get one.

Don't know that it had been hijacked. basic topic was converting ar's to .22lr. This seemed to go right along

To those of you in the know, instead of getting a complete upper, this looks quite interesting. This idea was what OM suggested. What do you think? What are it's pros and cons?

I believe umarex makes colt's 22 stuff (maybe smith and wesson's too!)

the advantage for your purposes, haka, (of a dedicated upper, or comversion bolt ) is your 22 trainer would have the exact trigger pull and grip as your match rifle.

I have one of the original Colt 22 conversion units in my personal collection. I used it frequently when I lived in California but not so much anymore. The big difference is the magazines. Each manufacturer makes them so they generally only work with their conversion units. Since I only acquired one magazine with the unit I found my practice sessions more beneficial as dry-firing with actual high power equipment rather that fumbling with the conversion magazine out at the range. I keep it more as a collector's piece since it was one of the original units offered.
