    This is a great article, below I have copied the best part so if you do not have the time to read all of it.

    “A modern take on a classic

    Modern sporting rifles, or MSRs, are what gun-control proponents deceptively term “assault rifles.” Although an MSR is virtually the exact same gun as any other semiautomatic rifle on the market — including hunting rifles, which critics say they’re not going after — the fact they’re clad in scary-looking accessories like barrel shrouds and extended grips and magazines, and have folding stocks allows opponents to demonize them for belonging to an especially dangerous category of weapons.

    But they’re quite similar to hunting rifles: They use the same ammunition; they have the same firepower; and you can fire only one bullet with each trigger pull, just like with hunting rifles. It’s because they’re tactically colored and look like military weapons that people not familiar with them think they pose a heightened risk.”

    Read about this a while back, and I will say that more information is needed before a blanket condemnation happens.

    Remember hat this not about an AR15, but a dedicated .22 styled after the AR15.

    Conversions for the AR15 are notoriously finicky, and that’s using good parts and ammo. While technically not a conversion, the similarities are there.

    Many moons ago I ran a Colt conversion in an XM177 clone. Thanks to the slime bill it was a 10 round mag only, and back then spares were more than difficult to find. The Black Dog mags weren’t even a dream yet.

    However to this day, I wish I had held onto that unit, temperamental and liking only premium ammo, it ran well when fed right. And was decently accurate.
