With the price of centerfire 223 ammunition being what it is, many are looking for an inexpensive practice solution. Or maybe you would just like to have a super high quality AR type system in 22LR for recreational shooting in situations that do not allow the centerfire option. We have shot most of the 22 LR conversions on the market and feel that the new Nordic Components rim fire action is the most reliable.
Therefore, we use the Nordic Components 22 rim fire action and barrel and duplicate a JP-15 upper assembly in 18" LW contour, exactly like the centerfire version with perfectly blended JPTRE-2S comp and a .750 profile to the muzzle. Weight and handling characteristics are virtually identical to our most popular centerfire match configuration.
The problem with most of the cheap 22 rim fire AR-15 type rifles is that they do not duplicate the handling of your match rifle in that they are extremely light weight. A practice tool isn't of much value if it does not duplicate your match rifle in handling.
You could buy a cheap plastic AR-15 rim fire copy, or you could buy a real AR-15 rim fire rifle. The choice is yours. Quality matters.
