Default RANGE REPORT: Spike's Dedicated .22lr Upper Receiver

Hi All.

Just took my custom Spike's dedicated .22lr upper matched with the new LCW LMT lower (from the $85 X-mas sale) out to the range. The upper uses the Ciener bolt and has 1x16 twist. I chose the optional rifle length freefloat YHM handguard and fake can with mine.

I ran over 250 rounds of Aguila Super Max ammo...and not one FTF! Gotta give everyone the heads up, this is a great .22lr upper. I had the Bushy .22 upper prior and that had 1 FTF after every four to five rounds. I eventually ended up having to send the Bushy upper back to Bushmaster for repairs...never got it back. They just issued me a full refund. I would also like to add that you really do get a quality upper and customer service from Spike's ewas xcellent. For those who have been wanting a .22 decidated upper, I would highly recommend Spike's tactical.

FYI - They should be coming out with a .22lr marked lower receiver soon for those who prefer to match their uppers/lowers by brand.

Below are pictures of the set up I used at the range.

Hope this helps and safe shooting everyone!

Thats a cool lookin .22! If you dont mind, what was the total cost? I just with there was a way to make my Ruger .22 30 rounders work it in...10 rounds must go rather quickly.

Question

What kind of groupings did you get from it?

Thanks for all the complemements! Got this during X-mas. The link for the upper could be found at http://spikestactical.com/catalog/pr...roducts_id=116. On my set up I chose the 16" barrel with a fake can. I had to call in for the YHM full rifle length (12") handguard. The one pictured on their website is for the light weight. I didn't really dig the light weight 'cause it'd show the gas tube. The regular handguard hides that. The cost for my basic set up minus sights are as follows:

$610 upper
$85 Lower
$90 CTR stock w/ buffer tube, spring, and buffer
$40 DPMS LPK
____________

=$825

I had the extra bells and whistles lying around from other previous builds.

I'm sorry. With regards to groupings, I'll have to report that on another day. If anyone went out to Angeles yesterday, you'd know how bad the winds were. Winds were so bad at the range, that people who put up paper targets with the piping had them flying all over the place and so did my plastic doscosil rifle cases. Just had to take advantage of the time I had yesterday and unfortunately the conditions were not ideal to measure groupings. However, I did plink away at the 35 and 50 yard iron targets and I was hitting 8-9/10 shots easy, even given the wind conditions. I'll make sure to measure the next time out and give another report.

Thanks again and I hope this helps.

Gas blocks aren't necessary since they're blow-backs. So, no I didn't purchase it with mine. And it works like a charm. Hope this helps.
