Default AR-15 in 22 magnum

Anyone know of such a beast? I did a search here and on google and found nothing that indicated such a thing.

Anyone ever seen one?

I'm not sure why someone would want an AR in .22Mag. I love the .22Mag round, and I really wish it was as cheap as .22LR, but it costs as much or more than .223.

There is a company that makes a .17hmr upper. For the life of me I can't find the post where the link was posted.

Are you sure you were not thinking of the Olympic 17 MKII?
That's a 22lr case necked down to 17, much like the 17 HMR is a 22 mag case necked down to 17.

Yeah, it was a dedicated .17hmr upper. Damnit, it's killing me that I can't find that site.

.22Mag typically costs $0.15-$0.20 per round. Wolf .223 these days costs $0.17-$0.22 per round.

And that is at current prices. A year ago or earlier and .22Mag was the same price, and Wolf .223 was $0.10/rd. I bought cases of Lake City XM193 for $0.15/rd. So sad.

I did notice that if you are willing to spend $560 at SG you can get 5,000 rounds of PMC Predator .22Mag, which comes to $0.11/rd. I would still prefer to spend $106 at Outdoor Marksman for 4000 rounds of Federal American Eagle .22LR 38gr (my ammo of choice) at less than $0.03/rd.

I see your point. I am going by current prices with .223 at $.40+ for surplus and $.10 for 22 mag. But if you have a pleasantly large stockpile of .223 than you are in business!

I would be using this weapon for plinking and varmit hunting.

The reasons I want a .22 magnum are as follows:

A) No assault weapon bullsnit
1) I can have a forward pistol grip, a rear pistol grip AND a detachable magazine.

B) Lighter weight

C) I can carry a lot more ammo

D) Less noise (I can hunt in rural areas without ticking off farmers)

E) Slower Velocity- I can shoot a grey squirrel in the belly and actually have some meat left over.

F) If I am going to spend $600 on a .22, I want it to have a little more range than a .22LR.

G) .17HMR is EXPENSIVE... if I bought a .17HMR it would be a bolt gun.

MGI says they are someday going to make a .22Mag magwell for their modular AR-15 lower. Personally I wouldn't hold my breath.

Look about halfway down or search for "magnum" on this page.
http://www.ar15.com/forums/topic.htm...=151223&page=3

Volquartsen now makes a 25rd magazine for .22Magnum and .17HMR.

Maybe that would be a good option for you in the mean time, for when you shoot out of state.

Too many irons.
Not enough fire.

I feel their pain.

Agreed. They ignored the cardinal rule that every step of the design and manufacture process is going to be ten or twenty times harder than you think it is, and take ten to twenty times longer than you think it will.
