Have a multical marked ar lower with features (pg/collapsing stock/fpg) and no bullet button if you have a 22 upper on it?

I'm trying to build a polymer ar but I can't find any marked .22lr or rim fire only.

#6 Rifle is chambered in a rimfire cartridge --> Not an AW, so you don't need a BB

I'm aware of the flowchart. Just wanted to double check its a non issue if the marked as multical or in a center fire caliber.

I don't see it as an issue. I have a similar set up, standard .223 marked lower, no bullet button, with a dedicated 22lr upper (not just a conversion kit). The barrel of the upper is clearly marked as 22lr, and you couldn't jam a .223 round in there no matter how hard you tried. If that is what you're looking at, I don't see how you would have a problem.

Since the law says that the rifle is chambered in that caliber, it would lead me to believe that what the lower is marked doesn't mean a thing.

Its a dedicated 22 upper. The upper is actually polymer hence when I'm looking at polymer lowers.

Yes its legal.

Asked and answered - the markings only matter if they put the lower in the list of banned weapons.
