No offence Rioslu but using your magazine as a rest isnt the best thing to do
nice rifle though

Scratch705 06-16-2009 9:37 PM

just wondering but does the fake can come with the spikes or did everyone just decide to do the same thing?

cause it looks damn nice and if that is how it comes, i think i rather do a build instead of getting those .22lr colt/s&w pre-builts

Its an option Spikes offers

Im in the process of getting funds ready to get a complete spikes upper and lower and I am leaning towards the fake can myself. It definately looks cool

The only time magazines are used for resting rifle is for posing. In the shooting pic im supporting the front of rifle by the VFG and not the magazine as obscured by the other mags;). No offence taken.

No worries man
you can take the Marine out of the Corps but not the Corps out of the Marine
shooting using your mag as a rest was a big no-no in the Corps
but like I said nice rifle
how does it shoot
im interested in getting one

xxINKxx 06-17-2009 4:26 PM

Try the tuning tips located here. http://www.ar15.com/forums/topic.htm...f=282&t=168048

Also what ammunition are you using? Federal Bulk Blue box runs great in mine.

You can start by cutting a few rings of the bolt spring. I also installed a lighter hammer spring from JP rifles. Spikes tactical also sells a light hammer spring. I used to have intermittent FTE on my Spikes, but she runs great with the new hammer spring installed. I also polished the hammer were it contacts the bolt, and used Moly lube on the hammer as well.

It will need some tuning, but once you get it right it is damn fun to shoot. Plus troubleshooting is part of the fun, at least for me.

Good luck.

Chunky_lover 06-19-2009 3:42 PM

I use the conversion bolt from spikes, my spring is around 6 coils less then what they recommend, and I put back in the original trigger spring. When I put back in the original trigger spring and shot the last 80 rounds I had everything worked perfectly. Alot of my light primer strikes were when trying rapid fire, and a few here and there with normal slow shooting.

The recoil spring cut down helped me with FTE's, the original hammer spring I hope solved the numerous light primer strikes I was getting often with the softer spring I installed along time ago. Dont be scared to cut down the recoil spring, but I bought extras before I did it, my kit never came with extras like alot of people get.

Here are a few pics of my dedicated .22lr.

It is a complete CMMG lower with a Model 1 Sales 16" A2 HBAR Upper.

It is a blast to shoot. I have shot a little more than a brick of Federal through it with no problems and about 100 rounds of Win lead nose with no problems either.

Met fellow CG'er Davinho there and he offered up some of this Aguila 60 gr ammo. What a difference!

Still have some fine tuning to do, but its almost right.

Others have said that the SSS .22 is very accurate also.I guess it is time to pick up some and have some quiet fun.

Tac Sol LT
 
http://i32.tinypic.com/255hycp.jpg

Brown truck dropped off a package from Tactical Solutions today! AR-22 LT Upper with matching Matte Black Compensator (hard to see in pic) and five 10-round BDM magazines. Fit and finish of the upper is excellent, as I've come to expect from Tac Sol. A nice extra touch is the extended latch they use on the charging handle. It makes it easy to manipulate the bolt with one hand.

I posted full specs of the lower in another thread, but basically it's a Noveske N4 + DPMS LPK + Magpul MIAD + Magpul CTR + Noveske QD End Plate + KNS Pins. The fit onto the lower is quite snug, but I'm still able to push the takedown pin in without a punch.

I opted for the LT instead of the M4 or Spike's ST-22 because of weight, and I think I made a good choice. As pictured, unloaded magazine, with H buffer and spring still installed in buffer tube, it weighs around 6.4 pounds. The weight balance is perfect and the knurled Hogue handguard suits me just fine. I was planning to swap it for a Troy TRX Extreme 11" rail, but now I don't think it's necessary.

Range report to follow after the weekend.

usmcchet9296 08-07-2009 7:20 PM

Ok just picked up the lower today and put her all togather
This is a complete Spikes upper and lower

Taking to the range tomorrow to see how it shoots

MustangGreg66 08-09-2009 1:26 AM

I've wanted an ST-22 ever since I saw it the first time and this thread isn't helping... the one with the YHM railed forarm and fake can...

I picked up this DPMS upper before I saw the spikes. Still a fine upper :)

Tactical Machining lower, RRA 2-stage trigger, Stag stock, DPMS dedicated .22 upper. This pic was before I had a trigger guard. Mounted with a 4-16 weaver scope for range testing.

Once I zero'd it I was able to get nickle and quarter sized groups regularly at 25 meters and around quarter to 2 inch groups with iron sights and the 8 MOA C-More at 50 meters which is more than acceptable to me for a plinker. I Might scope it to see how tight I can get it later when I can afford a scope for it.

Awsome setup for both. What kind of stock do you have on the 10/22, I'm interested to know what kind of scope that is too. Great setup. Pretty pricy AR just for plinkin but that accuracy seems pretty good for a red dot

The stock is a B&C light target and the scope is a Falcon Menace
it used to be on my Remmington 700 but I replaced it with a Bushnell tactical

the C-more was 200USD which is reasonable

Ah, nice. Yea, I saw those on sale from MidwayUSA, I almost got one. Is that cheek piece on teh B&C stock a custom add on? Where's you get the part to add it on? looks wicked cool.

Retro Colt M16 w/ Spike's Tactical ST-22 Bolt
 
Lower is LMT Defender w/ A2 Buttstock and Ergogrip.
Upper is retro M16, NOT M16A1 Colt 604 upper. It has the lightweight barrel with 1x12 twist.
Spike's Tactical ST-22 Conversion kit w/ gas tube plug

This is technically a dedicated 22lr upper, because I removed the gas tube. Therefore, I have also installed a magazine release button.

In it's native habitat...

Definitely like the heavier weight on the end compared to the CTR, provides better balance overall to the rifle.

Yes those are.

On a sad note, I just got home from a long day which included shipping off my .22LR Dedicated Upper, I already sold the Lower a few weeks back. She'll be missed :(

She served me well :patriot:
