Built a dedicated rimfire AR with the CZ V22 16" upper and 6 pos collapsable stock and A3 front/rear sights. The V22 bolt rides on twin rods/springs and is easier to disassemble for cleaning than the 10/22. Got the Ruger a couple years ago for $129 at Turners before the prices went up, but now she's gonn'a get some back of the safe time. Sorry girl you know how it goes.

How much did that cost you?

If you take the .22 upper off your lower is there anything that prevents you from attaching a .223 upper, thus creating an AW?

I'm going to venture and answer for him to say no. However to make it an AW it would take disassembly and reassembly of the gun, does that differ from adding or removing a pistol grip? No.

Yep; DOJ letters stating that constructive posession principles do not apply to Cat3 AWs!

As long as you don't actually, DO IT, you're fine.

Where can one procure a .22 upper. A search of the interweb on the model number of the upper that you have has turned up nothing but "out of stock" results.

I have decided I must forego the 10-22 and build a dedicated .22 AR instead ..

Thanks

I checked my receipt and bought the upper from Natchez back in Oct.05 for $249. The CZ V22 is a true 22LR upper not a converted 223. Extra mag's were $30 back then, too high so I stuck with the one that came with it. Now I just got a couple mags this week from CheaperthanDirt for $15 :). I didn't shoot this much because of constructive possession doubt. But now I built a new lower exclusively for a runfire upper. There is no buffer bolt/spring in the stock tube (22LR is blow back only) this would prevent using centerfire upper until/unless those parts were installed. The mag drops with normal button function. I'll take this rimfire OR non-SB23 centerfires to the range but not BOTH in the same trip. I did use the disco chrome DPMS trigger, safety, mag release and pivot pins on this so that added a couple frill bucks. I used a stock, detachable sights from an A3 that cried to be converted to a national match. The soft Houge grip is nice. If U had to buy all parts I guess total is about $600 with a lower price lower (eg ~$125). Accuracy was 1.5" group with 50 rnds at 50 yrds bench rest.

And a good place to read up on it all:

While a .22 upper is a cool and fun thing (I have a DPMS), something that's as accurate as a good 10/22 is going to cost 3x as much. To get better accuracy, you'll need the Compass Lake or Kuehl.
