Any recommendations on a .22LR conversion kit for a Bushmaster OCR AR-15? Thanks.

I'd check out the CMMG kit if you're looking for a drop-in and not a dedicated upper.

I agree. But a dedicated upper is a better way to go. The barrel of a 223 is oversized for .22 rimfire, and has the wrong twist, hence accuracy from a drop-in is typically pretty poor.

True, and a dedicated .22 AR is even better since they are so cheap and better than swapping out an upper.

Don't bet on it limiting the lead. I heat stripped an old garage, outdoors and still got quite a load of lead. Fair bit of chelation later and my brain returned from walkabout.

Trouble sighting in

You might like the idea of being able to see the sights but the distance from the centerline of the bore of the rifle and the line of sight through the scope bring about some complications. PLUS it looks like you are using a full size scope that is manufactured to be used at 100yds or greater bringing up the term parallax. If you try to sight in a .22 with a full size big bore scope not adjusted to be parallax free at 50yds you can shoot 5 shots into one hole move your face just a bit and repeat and you may still shoot into a ragged hole but it will be in a different place due to parallax. If you do not have a rock hard position to start with you will shoot to different spots with each shot. Bottom line, get a .22 scope parallax adjusted to 50yds, have your scope adjusted to be parallax free at 50 yds and whatever you do lose the see through mounts and mount the scope so it presents a clear picture every time you shoulder the gun. .

What a nightmare sighting it using the CCI CB's.. those bullets are nice a quiet to shot in the backyard, but no consistent at all.. anyhow, since I'm going to be using this 22 in the backyard the use of any other bullet is pretty much out of the question.
After setting the scope with the CCI CB's I shot few LR regular bullets and at 100fts the aim is 4 inches higher than the CB's.
Anyway, it was a fun afternoon.. ;)

Here's the gun my wife and I bought a couple weeks ago. I said mine was a CZ 75B in my last post, but its really the CZ 75 SP-01 (I dont know the difference so dont ask). The wife has the Sig Sauer P238.

The CZ


The Sig


A few targets from about 25 yards away. As you can see, I cant shoot worth a damn, but it was fun.


Looking to buy a .22 revolver for the lady (she wants one) and a 1911 .45 for myself next. I'm reading and watching the .45 thread here.

Yeah, the 22LR wants a 1:16, IIRC. BUT if you're just wanting to be able to train on one system, a drop-in is hard to beat. If you're just plinking then getting a dedicated upper would be better as a drop-in will only give you accuracy out to 25-50ft at best.

Okay, it's time for the spaghetti western meets attack of the killer tomatoes meets my blood lust for shooting soda bottles! What fun is just shooting pop bottles with out turning them into a zombi apocalypse? I think I'm ready for the big screen! Try to remember it's supposed to be really bad acting to meet my "B" movie rating, thankfully I am an over achiever in this area. ENJOY

My Spikes kit and Black Dog mags work great. Not MOA, but I'm on the paper @ 25yds or so. Great for silhouettes and run/gun.

Personaly, i get really bored on the static range

That's certainly the case. I bought one of the first S&W 15-22s when those came out and enjoy it. My girlfriend and her kids love shooting it. Yeah, I know, she should be wearing eye protection. I try but am not always successful.



That said, I am afraid I think of the 15-22 as more or less a toy. It is so light (I think around 4#) that it does not have a lot of the 'feel' of the real deal. About a decade ago I was interested in getting into NRA High Power shooting, got a match grade AR 15 and wanted a dedicated upper for it to practice with .22 rimfire. I ended up getting one and it truly matches the correct feel, but it has been a PITA to get it to function as well as I would like, even though it is superbly accurate. I never did get into High Power, no club near here was doing it (although at that time there was talk....it just never transpired), but still have the gun and use it a fair bit.

How so? It's actually not a bad offhand stance for that sort of a gun. But it definitely isn't a combat or 3-gun stance, much more of a bullseye target one. Take a look at some High Power shooters doing offhand stages and see what I mean.

The length and position of the stock makes me crazy.
