||ALMOST PERFECT - 11/25/2012|
|I bought this so I could shoot more from my ARs without breaking the bank. Unlike the non-stainless models, this one may be a tight fit on brands like Olympic Arms. I have to tap it in a bit and it gouges the brass lug fitting some. No harm to lugs, as they are steel. It fits fine in my wife's M&P15, my Spike's Tactical, my Colt, and my Bushmaster. Some accuracy may be lost, but not every shot. .22s from a regular AR barrel with a 1:7 to 1:9 twist rate spin too fast for perfect accuracy. That's why .22 dedicated barrels are usually 1:16 twist. Most of us know this, some don't, so be patient. I am able to shoot three shot groups for sight and scope adjustments. It's good for what it does without using a dedicated upper. I use it for different sight and scope combos, and trying various techniques. When I'm happy with the adjustments I've made, I switch to 5.56 for a final check and sometimes adjustment. It will fail to eject brass sometimes, or have a non-fire, but at 4 cents a shot, does it really matter? Easy to install - remove regular bolt and put this one in, load mag with .22 shells, and you're shooting. I bought the cheaper one, also. It fits the Olympic Arms with no effort. Haven't fired it yet, though. Nothing gets 5 bullets unless it's perfect and whispers in my ear. Overall, good product and easy to use and clean.|

||mini-firepower - 11/22/2014|

|Just got this conversion and installed it my DPMS Sportical. This thing works flawlessly! I used Winchester bulk ammo and I could spit them out as fast as I could pull the trigger. I was concerned about accuracy but after shooting the conversion, those fears went away. I have my reflex sighted in dead on at 250 meters with .223/5.56 and switching to .22lr, i never touched the sight and was able to hit clay pigeons dead on at 50 yards! I highly recommend this unit. I've heard bad stories about the first model which is parkerized steel, but this one is stainless steel and works great. the manufacturer recommends a 100 round break in period but mine functioned flawlessly up to and way past that!|

||Great Product - 9/3/2014|
|This product works as advertised. CheaperThanDirt! shipped promptly. Using this in my Bushmaster and I have fired hundreds rounds thru it without a single FTF or FTE using a variety of different ammunition – CCI Standard, CCI Mini-Mag, Remington Golden Bullet & Cyclone, Blazer, Aguila Super Extra, Federal Auto Match and Norma Tac22.
You will lose a little accuracy shooting .22 thru a .223 1:9 twist chrome barrel, but not a problem unless your match shooting. I’ve got Parkinson’s but I get 1” groups at 25 yards and 1.25” – 1.5” groups at 50 yards.
I would purchase again without hesitation.|
