Has anyone seen or used a .22 WMR (.22 Magnum) upper or AR-15 conversion kit? I'd think they would be very popular in CA if available seeing as they would avoid the AW ban entirely while having significantly more punch than .22lr. Though I haven't read anymore than rumor about them.

The only company that will pull this off is Nordic. I'll be testing some of thier gear soon.

The Atchison set up just won't handle .22 magnum. It's been tried.

I know magnum research make a pseudo 10/22 in 22wmr. Not an ar but the closest I've seen.

I've got a Nordic .22lr upper and it is superb. Very accurate and very well made.

I've heard they have a .22WMR in the works but no release date yet. Supposedly, they are in production. Here is a pic of the .22WMR:

a .22 WMR AR, IMO, would be awesome!

i believe the .22 WMR is highly underrated.
