Outstanding info! Thanks for posting. I've toyed with the idea of a dedicated 22 or 22 conversion, but just never pulled the trigger. I'll probably not get back to it for awhile, but good points to consider. Truth be told, for as little trigger time as I really get with the Colt, 'cheap' .223 is fine for now, but like you said, we gotta accessorize. Looking forward to the final range report, and more pics, of course.
