Tired of your standard Ruger 10/22? Be sure to check out @gungner_inc and their latest product, the GR-22 chassis! Take your typical Ruger 10/22 and slip it into the GR-22 to convert it to a full-fledged .22 caliber AR 15, complete with Picitiny rails, and KeyMods along the sides. We received one from Gunger Inc., and have spent some time on it and are ready to bring you our thoughts.
The kit comes with everything you’ll need except for the AR pistol grip, buttstock, and of course your Ruger 10/22. The GR-22 holds the entire rifle’s receiver and barrel snugly in its mold, and we do mean snugly. When fitting it into the GR-22 we had to exert more effort than we expected, but ultimately were able to fit the rifle’s receiver into it after some filing of the internal part of the GR-22 chassis. After screwing it all together, and adding an EOTech ,G33 magnifier, and foregrip, we were ready to hit the range. Firing it was like shooting a .22 caliber AR-15, same ergonomics and feel, just a smaller package. The entire chassis is built from plastic however, with the exception of the screw-in areas, meaning excessive use may lead to wear and tear more quickly. That being said, it does run for only $49.97 on gungnerinc.com, so for the all-plastic construction isn’t that bad considering the price point. At the end of the day it was extremely satisfying to see after some time on the range we had spent a fraction of what we would have spent had we been using 5.56 ammo, so that cost cut was definitely worthy of note.
Take home bullet points:
- Tight fit, but once it’s in it’s not going anywhere
- All plastic construction: great for price, bad for excessive use or abuse
- Pistol Grip and Buttstock sold separately
- Picitiny and KeyMod hold everything on as desired - Can train on the AR 15 platform for a fraction of the price
After spending some time with it, we appreciate what the GR-22 has to offer. Shooting an AR platform for the price of a .22 is good for the weekend warrior on a budget. Overall considering its price it’s a great little package.
