Are there any offlists stamped ".22LR?"

There are none that I am aware of.

Lauer Custom Weaponry does not have any caliber stamped...
Mega offers a "multi" as does a few others... those would work just fine for a dedicated .22LR.

I've seen a complete rifle at target masters in Milpitas that had a lower which stated it was .22LR. It had an open magwell also.

The language of the AWB is quite clear in stipulating centerfire. 22 LR is a rimfire cartridge so short of violating the combinatorial rules of SB23 I should think swapping back and forth from 223 Rem to a 22LR setup should be totally Kosher.

BTW - First post here :-) I've got two DoubleStar lowers that went into DROS Friday night.

If a 6.8 or .223 Lower has a .22LR upper on it, is it a .22LR? You can make a valid argument either way.

If you're going to play those games with the AWB, it should at least be on a .22LR stamped lower.

Yes. And you can even have it in a case right next to a .223 upper and it's still a .22LR and is perfectly legal. California does not have a constructive possession clause or wording in law, however it could put you into test case waters.
