Oly Arms .22lr Adapter

Postby DocH » Wed Jul 05, 2017 12:24 pm

Well, I picked up one of the Oly Arms .22lr Adapter for My K8!
I really like the way it fits and the look and feel of the adapter unit.
Well made and cleanly finished....

Have not fired it yet, but I can see how a dedicated upper will probably be bit more accurate.
The bullet has a bit of a "jump" to make it to the rifling, but until I actually shoot it, the jury is out on the accuracy potential.
I must say with the Oly Arms discount, the price was very reasonable...am wondering if I should have picked up 2 of them!!
I also noticed that the AC4NA: Pneumatic Recoil Buffer - Non-Adjustable is still available...if I did not own 3 of them I would pick up a couple!!

THANKS, Oly Arms for the Great deals, and here's hoping The Company will stay in business!

yup, I really like the OA's RFA's too; I have a couple of them; (1) is for converting a standard 556/223 and the other (1) is for converting the 545x39mm caliber :thumbs up:

The RFA will work really well. It is patterned after the original military (M261??) 22 lr adapter first used by the Air Force. Uses Black Dog magazines that were developed using the Oly system. A dedicated system will only be more accurate if it uses a proper barrel - which even in 22 conversion dedicated uppers is sometimes hard to get. The K22 upper from Oly is manufactured with a .221" bore and is a true 22 lr barrel. Most used M16 or AR15 blanks that are .224" and therefore accuracy is not as good as it should be, not to mention that lead fowling then becomes even more of a problem because of blow-by gasses ripped lead off the bullets.
