    what is the realistic accuracy to be expected out of a cmmg conversion for my AR if i have a 1:9 twist vs the standard 1:16 twist for a regular .22lr?

    I dont know? Hey does the CMMG kit lock the bolt to the rear on the last round? If it doesnt then I wouldnt even consider it as a trainer personally.

    There is a long sticky thread on this subject at AR15.com

    I have a Ciener unit. CMMG is basically a Ceiner unit.

    Ammo has a lot to do with accuracy and reliability.

    I think you will find a standard rack grade 10-22 is more accurate.

    But it really depends on what you are trying to do for training.
    If you are training for close quarters combat it is accurate enough.
    If you are expecting a tack driver, think again.

    I have been using a Spike's kit in my "frankenrifle"; it has a Bushmaster 16-inch 1-9 barrel. I have been getting 1.5"-2" groups at 25 yards with cheap "bulk pack" .22LR, which I consider OK for plinking/CC training.

    And of course a dedicated upper is better than a conversion.

    i realise that a dedicated upper or a 10/22 would be more accurate but i was looking for practical accuracy of the conversion. i want to get one to train my wife with at 25 yards. she was shooting at 50 pretty well with the regular .223 setup but the sights and trigger control is new to her. i just wanted a budget option to let her get the instant gratification of seeing the bullet impacts and getting her more use to the situation.

    thanks for all the replies so far.
