I need one to work with the standard hammers.

Who carries them?

And what do you mean by "standard hammers" ?

The .22 conversions and uppers generally work with the more M16-styled "rounded" hammer, vs the Colt/Bushmaster styled "notched" hammers.

But for AR15's there aren't really anything that I would call a "standard" hammer. There are two types and they are both "standard" for AR15's. Only one works well with .22's though.

If you have a notched hammer, just spend the $15 and get a replacement rounded hammer along with your upper.

They stopped producing them. QC problems with their suppliers. They still sell spare parts.

CMMG is leading the innovation in AR22. I own one of their .22 uppers. They are GTG. Contact shadow65 here for the best price around.

CMMG has been outstanding.
I always recommend the stainless bolt up grade at a minimum. It's stronger, smoother, uses less lube, stays cleaner and is easier to clean.
My M4 LE has over 20K through it with a hand ful of FTE's.
