Has anyone use a 22 conversion unit on todays faster twist barrel? If so lets hear what happen.
I have been using a Spike's kit in my "Frankenrifle". It has a 16" 1-9 Bushmaster medium-heavy barrel. With the cheap "bulk box" .22LR, I can get 1.5-2" groups at 25 yards, well suited to plinking or cheap close-range practice. I have not tried it on paper beyond 25 yds, though. YMMV.


P.S. The thing is fun as hell, so I'm getting lots of trigger time!
