My Dad recently aquired another AR. What are your opinions of this conversion kit? Since he has like 3 AR's he is considering this as an option for one of them to be able to shoot for cheap. Is this worth investing in?

Yes. This is why the standard AR platform is cool to me. :D There's someone on here that works with cmmg and you can get a really good discount. I got the cmmg india kit from him.

I'm interested in doing this as well. More info would be much appreciated.

I’ve been disappointed in the accuracy of my conversion kit. I’m getting 6-inch groups at 50 yards. It is nowhere near as accurate as my 10/22.

I have to agree on accuracy problems with the kits. Try different ammo and you might find you can cut those groups in about one half. My ceiner conversion isn't as accurate as my 22 rifles but I can hit clays with it at 50 yards.

Is the rifle still accurate shooting 22lr out if 5.56 barrel?

Edit

Thanks for the answers above. I really would love at 10/22 but I was thinking this may be a cheaper route.

Accuracy isn't great but I agree that a .22 conversion kit is a cheap way to train. I have the Cmmg kit and it works well enough.

No, if you use the kit you'll have a 1/7, 1/8 or 1/9 twist and 22lr needs 1/16 twist. I got a dedicated 22lr upper, no accuracy issues here.

I agree with bloodhawke. My daughters dedicated .22 upper is a tack driver at 50 yards.
