One Response to New .22 LR Upper for ARs

  1. Michael B. Saari says:

    For paper targets at 50-yards I can see the usefulness of the AR-22 upper receiver. However, if one is going to be using there rifle for squirrel hunting, rabbit, or anything this side of 50-yards, the AR-22 upper is not a proper choice based on the height of the front and rear sights.
    This is why the Ruger 10/22 still reigns today. Low sight profile for this side of 50-yards and beyond to even 100 -yards. For the cost of an AR-15 upper 22-receiver a young man or adult could easily purchase the most famous of all 22 rimfire rifles. (The Ruger 10/22) Which will be more accurate than an AR-22 barrel this side of 50-yards.
    This is just my own opinion and observation as an elitist in the hunting industry having been an avid hunter for nearly 40 years with 125 acres in Cadillac Michigan, and 20 acres in Milan Michigan strictly for hunting and only hunting purpose’s. Yes, I do grow corn on my Milan property, but this only to bring the deer into rifle sight for me and my 4-boys.
    Venison is never a problem and I have truly been blessed by God for being able to pay off these properties in my youthful working years. Today I am 52-years old and would someday like to offer one of my properties to help young hunters experience wild nature either by bow or rifle.
