Plinker Tactical .22 Full AR

Plinker Tactical SBR

New from Plinker Tactical are full guns. They have an SBR and a bull barrel currently available. When used with the 25-round mags that come with the guns, they have bolt hold-open on an empty mag, something that not many rimfire ARs have. It’s a better re-creation of full-size AR shooting, particularly when used for training by professionals who need to simulate the real thing. (Though how many professionals are using 25-round AR mags?)

    How many moneys?

  • FourString

    Would be cooler if they took BX25 (Ruger 10/22) magazines

    • hkryan

      Then it wouldn’t be as useful for training. Can’t beat the reliability of 10/22 mags though.

      • FourString

        valid point, valid point, mate. i don’t even know why i didn’t even think about that.

    • Justice

      Not really. They would look odd on AR15 style rifle.

      • Guest

        True. I’d imagine BX25’s would look better on a bullpup plinker. If only Ruger would come out with one of those, first party.

    yep….how much

  • mig1nc

    I wonder if my CMMG magazines will work in this?

  • ARluv

    I’m sure they have an sbr, but the photo above is a pistol with stabilizing brace!

  • hkryan

    Good to have options but it better be the same price as, or less than, an M&P15-22.

    I’m not sure if I’d choose Plinker Tactical over a more established brand like the M&P-15-22 or the rimfires from CMMG. If you care about bolt hold-open, then CMMG makes an adapter that works with their rimfire uppers and conversions. I have one and can confirm that it works when manually working the bolt-catch and when using CMMG magazines. BDM mags don’t activate the catch without significant modification.
