Meet the 22 Nosler, a .22 caliber center-fire cartridge designed specifically for the AR-15 platform. The goal of this project was not only to create a new cartridge but to also make a simple platform conversion for AR-15 owners.
Nosler executive vice president John Nosler said in a press release, “It was important to us that every AR-15 owner could instantly customize their existing rifle to 22 Nosler without any fancy gunsmithing. In keeping with that goal, a simple switch of the magazine and upper will do the trick.”
The conversion process is as simple as swapping out the upper and picking up a few 6.8 Rem SPC magazines. After just two easy steps shooters can be firing the new cartridge with their original .223 bolt carrier group.
The 22 Nosler will be available in both Match Grade and Trophy Grade for around $14 per box.
