When working on our other websites I often communicate with manufacturers. Towards the end of a conversation I will almost always inquire about something .22 related whether a new rifle barrel or something else rimfire related. The response is usually along the lines we have some ideas or plans in the works but we are swamped with AR manufacturing. Now the market is saturated and companies are looking for new hardware to deliver to the shooting masses. I knew it would be just a matter of time before we would see a factory bolt action chassis rifle from someone. What I didn’t expect was Ruger to be first with their Precision Rimfire chambered in .22lr. I don’t need to rehash what’s know about the rifle, that can be read below. I will say I think the gun is a bit homely but form must follow function. Of course I bet it won’t belong before MDT or Indian Creek offer aftermarket chassis for this gun. If Ruger nailed it in the accuracy dept this $500 rifle can turn out to be quite a success and maybe the start of a trend from other manufacturers. Time will tell. I have two final thoughts. How long until the Ruger Precision Rimfire is available on other calibers like .17HMR and .22 magnum and will Ruger make a chassis version of the 10/22? What are your thoughts?

The Brownells BRN-22™ Receiver is ready to be the foundation of your custom rimfire rifle build – at price never before seen on a target receiver. Even better, the BRN-22 is fully compatible with the ever-popular Ruger® 10/22®, so you can choose from the vast array of barrels, stocks, triggers, and other custom components for the 10/22® platform.
Each BRN-22™ receiver is precision-machined from 6061 aluminum billet to exacting tolerances. Why machined instead of forged, like most commercial receivers? All you need to do is look inside at the smooth, clean interior to realize that a machined receiver can be held to much tighter tolerances for a precise fit with other parts. After machining, BRN-22™ receivers get a tough matte black Type 2 hardcoat anodized finish (similar to the finishes found on many AR-15 receivers) that blends with most barrel and 10/22® trigger module finishes.read more

Every so often we receive a message about .22 Magnum AR-15 rifles or .22 magnum AR-15 conversion kits. like always I perform the obligatory research to see if there’s anything new. While there’s often rumors of someone developing a .22 Mag AR or conversion rarely does anything come to market or last if it does. There’s probably a bunch of reasons for this. For starters the value of .22lr AR’s is cheap ammo. Typically for a box of .22 magnum ammo you would expect to pay $10-$15 per box of 50. While not expensive your still flinging quarters down range instead of pennies with .22lr. Another reason is 22 mag is a niche market. There is very little interest from the shooting public.read more

AR-15 22LR Conversion History-Firearms designer Maxwell Atchisson is generally credited with the development of the first marketable AR-15 conversion unit while he was on the staff of the old Military Armament Corp (MAC) during the early 1970s. The original MAC units were available in two versions; One allowing full auto fire while the other provided semi-auto only. Each unit used a special 16 round box magazine which was the same size and shape as a standard AR-15 twenty round magazine but later a 30 round banana type magazine was developed and this design was later copied by J.A. Ciener for use in his conversion. Keep Readingread more

The Drop-in AR15 22 Conversion Kits are the easiest and least expensive method of converting your AR15 to a .22 caliber plinker. The kits will range in price from about $160-$250 and take about 30 seconds to install. There is a few down sides to using the drop in kits. The bullet must travel a few inches in an unrifled tube before it reaches the barrel. The barrels on most AR type rifles will typically have a twist rate that is optimized for the 5.56 Nato (.223) with a 1:7″- 1:9″ barrel twist rate and not the 1:16″ that works well with .22 long rifle. There is also a few thousandths of an inch difference in the bullets diameter of .22LR (.222) vs 5.56 Nato (.224). Those differences can lead to less then match grade accuracy in an AR15 but the accuracy is perfectly suited for plinking. If that accuracy is not suitable you can purchase a complete .22 long rifle upper. The cost starts at about double of the drop-in conversion and can go upwards well over $1000. The choice is yours.read more
