It's a .22 LR conversion kit for the AR so he can shoot rimfires in it. They make one for the Ruger mini 14 as well. They can be a bit pricey compared to a regular rimfire rifle.

Its a Spikes. With Winchester hollow points and liberal application of Rem oil to the Black Dog mags it runs flawlessly. Took a few mags worth to get them "worn in", so don't be discouraged right outta the box.

Well worth the $199 investment. The pistol range finally quit telling me I couldn't shoot it after the third trip.

I've got the XD-40 and it's built like a tank ... over 4,000 rounds down the pipe and not even one failure to feed.

The entire XD line is reliable as hell.

I've been through two XD45s, both have been flawless. I traded the first one in a fit of insanity.

You speak with such authority at times.

Other times, not so much.
