I've been interested in a .22 rimfire conversion for some time, and found that EBR-like uppers are available in .22. One popular source is Spike's Tactical http://www.spikestactical.com/catalog/home.php.

There were various ways to go, but no really good way to get 10 round magazines for these things. One outfit makes 25-30 rounds mags that have gotten great reviews, Black Dog Machine in Idaho. I wrote BDM yesterday and received this reply this morning:

we are going to do a mod to our mag that will have a pin molded in and a logo that says 10 rd. only, by the end of the month

Most excellent! The uppers are virtually indistinguishable from the centerfire calibers, are available in various configurations. Reports on AR15.com are encouraging, and this looks like a lot of fun. Not only are they perfectly legal in Whackyland, but cheap to shoot, without any diminution in "cool!"

There is a thread on Rifleman's Forum about this, and on AR15.com in AR15 Rimfire and Pistol conversions.

I'd want more permanent capacity reduction than that.
