Just received my latest OLL the other day. Decided to go with a Spikes Tactical ST-22 in 22LR to keep the costs down on shooting and to get around all the BS with AR type rifles and those evil features restrictions i.e. detachable mag. At this time I'm still gathering all the parts and accessories to complete my project. Hope to have it all together by next weekend. Pictures to be coming when completed. :pirashoot: :( :smiley_kewlpics:

I think you'll really like the Spike's Tactical equipment. I have used two of their lowers and they both accepted parts easily and mated perfectly with premium uppers. Good luck with your build. :fireworks3:

Hmmm, I thought you could somehow use a 22lr upper with a standard OLL. I thought that was the draw to the .22lr upper. You could use that as your "Legal" config and keep your .223 upper sitting there to be swapped in.

wannakillacoyote: I took my time to think this project through. You are correct about using a standard OLL and a 22LR upper. The issue that helped me finialize my discission was that if you have a OLL lower that can still accept a detachable centerfire mag I would have to use a bullet button or a mag lock and load from the top, if I didn't it could be considered an AW due to all the evil features on it and having an open mag well. Since this lower is marked "22LR" and it will not accept a regular .223 mag without a .223 upper in place. The standard .223 mags are prevented from locking in place due to the 22LR carrier bolt and the fact that the 22LR barrel goes 1.5" inside the receiver. :fireworks3:

Very interesting stuff bronco. I'm looking forward to seeing your photos and a range report when you're done. You have all the goodies lined up and it looks like you're ready to rock. :) I still have to camo my AR/Grendel. I have a digital camo kit from DuraCoat but I haven't had the time to do it yet. My wife's nickname is "Polly Project" because she's always got a honey-do list for me. B) I'll have to go on strike and do some gun painting as soon as I can. Here is the color combo I will be using on the Grendel.Posted Image

Some people in the free states have a lot of fun! Awesome stuff, sure would like one of those 8" 12 guages. Heck I would try skeet shooting with that. Now that would be a kick in the %$@. Thanks for sharing the link. :)
