Well I done did it, I'm almost done with my sorta-dedicated .22 build.

Spikes .22lr marked lower
CMMG lightweight 1/12 twist car 16" upper with fake can
Ciener .22 conversion (waiting for CMMG conversion)
and some BDM mags to boot.

The lower is dedicated 100% (see attached pic). The upper however is not so I wanted to play it safe and add a permanent plug to the buffer tube to keep the lower extra dedicated when attached to a non-dedicated upper. I actually stole the idea from another Calgunner poster, Thx.

I hole sawed a piece of black 1" melamine and sanded it down with a slight taper, added some epoxy to seal, and presto...

Just wanted to share my paranoia with me having a mag release button for my .22 plinking action. :TFH: The upper will only fire 5.56 when attached to a seperate Cal-legal lower with a bb. I should of gone completely dedicated but oh well, maybe next time.

Probably went to far but all Im out is a buffer tube if I ever change my mind...

I would say that you took unnecessary steps. If you run into a police officer that doesn't know the law to begin with, even with your modifications you will probably still get your firearm confiscated.

Probably not a terrible idea given that it's a Ceiner kit, but then again most likely unnecessary.

Yeah, but when Iggy tries to demonstrate how easy it is to turn the rifle into a centerfire by placing his centerfire upper on the rimfire lower, he will get a surprise when he tries to pull the charging handle back. :) Remember Iggy tried to build a machinegun by trying to fit his issue M4 fire control parts into a Calguns member's stripped lower. :eek:

We all know that the ability to accept a centerfire upper has no effect on the legality of a "rimfire" lower. But this extra step might make it easier and cheaper to convice a DA or judge if the unthinkable ever happened.

If I were building a dedicated .22LR AR, I'd probably do something along similar lines. Nothing wrong with CYA IMO.
