    build a lower and buy an upper. then you can change the upper for a .223 anytime you want

    I'm in the same boat I suppose. I was going to buy a CMMG .22LR conversion bolt, but I decided to go with a .22LR dedicated upper. I've been looking at some of the Spike's uppers.

    Not to hijack your thread, just looking for suggestions/thoughts.

    I already have a few AR's so I could just buy an upper but I have a $500 GC to a gun store I need to blow.

    I love my MP15-22. Awesome for cheap range fun. Also great for pests. Took out the ground hog that was digging up my lawn last weekend.

    From everything I've read the SW and the Sig are the best. The S&W will feel very similar to a real AR. All the controls are functional and identical. It also breaks down the same way. It is lighter and made out of polymer though.

    I've read the Colt version is the worst. It is outsourced to Umarex. Made out of cheap pot metal and jams like crazy. Also a lot of the features are just for show (dust cover, Bolt release paddle). It's also a PITA to clean and does not break down quickly.

    All the tactical looking .22lrs have small issues (Colt, Sig, SW, GSG). Most are FTF and FTE problems. SW has done some updates to help. I've had very few issues with mine. 2-3 FTF for every 500 rounds. I haven't had any FTE problems. They are also picky with what kind of ammo you use. Anything from Remington seems to jam. Most recommend Federal or CCI.

    Yeah I did a lot of research before dropping this kind of money on a .22lr. I'm happy with the choice I made. My 15-22 doesn't even have the updates and it's been fairly reliable. It's not as reliable as a 10-22, but I never expected it to be. None of the AR-22s will be. I do find it much more pleasurable to shoot than a 10-22 though.
