Default My Lightweight/K.I.S.S. AR-22 Build

Well after using my CMMG .22 adaptor in my AR-15 for some time, I decided that I might as well make a dedicated .22 upper with some of the parts that I had laying around. Figured I would enjoy something with the correct twist rate, as well as not having to worry about fowling up my gas system.

Of course once I had a dedicated upper, I decided might as well add a lower and have another AR!

Here is my AR-22, any feedback appreciated! Will probably run it with the scope more than the cheap-o irons, but I had an amazon gift certificate so I decided to put it to use! Sorry for the crappy cell phone photos.

Parts List
  • New Frontier Armory LW-15- $117.96 w/ tax
  • CMMG .22 M4 Profile Barrel- $109.95
  • CMMG SS Chamber Adaptor- $39.95
  • CMMG .22 Charging Handle- $19.95
  • CMMG Railed Non Functional Gas Block- $29.95
  • Shipping from CMMG- $14.50
  • UTG Front Sight Tower- $17.97
  • Carry Handle- $17.02
  • Stripped Upper- Already had
  • Barrel Nut/Delta Ring- Already had
  • Handguard- Already had
  • A2 FH- Already had
  • CMMG .22 Bolt- Already had, picked up used.
  • CMMG BHOA- Already had, picked up used.
  • NCStar Scope- Already had, picked up used.
  • A few .22 Mags- Already had

Total= $392.25 w/ DROS


Started off as a bunch of parts...


And final result.




With the cheap-o irons.


With its big brother.

Looks very nice and you kept the costs low to make it a great value. Good job.

Thanks!

Forgot to one of the best part. I asked CMMG to "Draw a picture of a monkey fighting a shark on the box" and they did!

Great build! How do you like that NC Star scope? Was planning on getting it for my 22 also

I like the scope so far, but I haven't used it a ton. I picked it up for very little used, so it was hard to pass up on.
