SHOT Show: Plinker Arms introduces new line of AR-15 .22LR rifles

CORNELIUS, NC – Plinker Arms, LLC, makers of American-made firearms magazines, accessories and components, are now in the firearms production business. Plinker Arms will unveil their new AR-15 .22LR rifles with a MIL-SPEC, multi-caliber AR-15 lower.

The Plinker Arms AR-15 .22L rifles in standard M4 and bull barrel model rifles allow enthusiasts, an industry first, to rack, tap and bang a .22LR on a MIL-SPEC AR-15 lower without any modifications to the lower receiver. The enthusiast can seamlessly transition from a 5.56 to a .22LR and back again within seconds. This revolutionary design features two distinctly new systems developed by Plinker Arms, which are the bolt hold open design and the Quick Adjustment Latch System (QALS).

The QALS feature allows the user of a Plinker Arms AR-15 rifle or Plinker Arms upper conversion unit to fine tune the bolt hold open latch system specifically to the user’s existing AR-15 lower receiver. Lower receivers can vary from manufacturer to manufacturer and gun to gun. QALS is a simple-to-use adjustment feature that any user can operate. No gunsmiths or tolls are required. The adjustment key is supplied with all Plinker Arms rifles and upper conversion units at no additional cost. Plinker Arms tunes the QALS for all Plinker Arms rifles and upper conversion units to function with most AR-15 lower receivers.

The Plinker Arms AR-15 .22LR is built on an alloy anodized, 7075 T6 lower receiver that is fully compatible with most AR-15 upgrades. The machined 7075 T6 upper features a free-floating barrel with an integrated feed ramp and a 1×16 twist, the patent pending Plinker Arms bolt-hold open system, an anodized Picatinny style rail system, a rim polished bolt and carrier system and the Plinker Arms QALS.

Three rifle versions are available, including the standard AR-15 .22LR model, a M4 .22LR rifle and a Bull Barrel .22LR.
All Plinker Arms AR-15 .22LR rifles come with the Plinker Arms Load Assist tool and a 25 or 10 round polymer magazine (all state laws applicable). American-Made rifles that make training real.MSRP is $699.99 for the AR-15 and M4 rifle, and $719.00 for the bull barrel rifle version.
