JP Enterprises Releases Dedicated Rimfire JP-22R Rifles

465

JP Enterprises has announced the introduction of four 22LR complete rifles along with the option to build custom uppers. Taking an obvious shot at Smith & Wesson in their press release, JP touts their all-metal construction:

No “me too” .22, the JP-22R series is designed to meet standards that flimsy plastic or cheaply assembled conversions simply can’t. By incorporating the exact same components and build quality of a centerfire JP, shooters can now have a .22 upper assembly or complete rifle that matches the quality of their primary rifles.

Like their full-power cousins, JP Enterprise rifles command a premium. The base model starts at $1,349. Blended compensators models are at $1,599. For those looking for a custom model, JP Rifle’s configuration tool is online for those who register on their website. Dedicated uppers are also available.

    $1000+ for a .22lr? No way, id buy 5 10/22 for that.

    • iksnilol

      3 + change in reality or 8 Marlin 795s.

    • Adam

      To be fair it’s not just a .22 rifle for plinking and squirrel hunting. It’s an AR15 in .22lr. So far the closest you could get was an S&W M&P 15-22 which is noticeably lighter than a standard ar15 and the guys that want to use it for running drills and training says the weight difference is an issue. This rifle is for people that want to train with an AR15, the exact same feel, same functions and operation, but want the reduced cost and recoil that .22lr offers.

      • blake

        you could have got a cmmg 22 ar which uses a real lower but yes overall i agree with what your saying

    • David Fiorito

      This is a competition gun, not a plinker. I have seen guys spend far more to make their 10/22s match ready.

  • Heavy

    The M&P-15 22 is the only production 22 with LRBHO. Can the JP do that with typical Black Dog mags?

    • iksnilol

      The Marlin 60/795 also has a LRBHO.

    • Cymond

      My CMMG 22lr AR-15 upper has a partially-functional LRBHO. The bolt catches on the follower of a BDM magazine, stopping it from going into battery & dry firing, but the bolt will close when the magazine is removed.

      CMMG also makes a drop-in adapter that extends the magazine catch to be able to hold the rimfire bolt. Hence, I can manually lock my bolt back, and hit the bolt-catch-release button to drop the bolt (for example, it also works with a BAD lever). Supposedly, CMMG magazines will also activate the drop-in part to make the bolt truly lock/catch open on the last round. However, I don’t think CMMG makes any 10-round magazines, so I have no way to test that in California.

    • m1

      The sig 522 also has lrbho

  • patrickiv

    If it’s dedicated to .22, why are they using AR-size magazines?

    • Cymond

      Because it’s still an AR lower, so you need AR-size magazines. They’re internally shaped for 22lr. I have one of these for my 22lr conversion and it’s about the size of a 20-round centerfire magazine.

      • patrickiv

        Ah I see. I thought the lower was dedicated rimfire as well. The title is a bit misleading.

  • John

    I have a JP 308. It is to he smoothest, lowest recoil 308 I’ve ever shot. Their quality is amazing. The only AR maker I consider higher than Colt, HK, LMT and LWRC. Don’t knock it until you’ve tried it. I’m not in the market for the world’s best made 22 in an AR pattern. If I was, this would probably be it.

  • CrazyKg

    I love that they took a shot against the polymer Smith & Wesson 15-22, which is very reliable and accurate enough while costing less than a third of the price. Genius marketing move.

  • wetcorps

    No iron sights? And putting BUIS on this short rail would give you a ridiculous sight radius… But I guess if you can drop close to 2K on a 22 semi auto, you can afford optics ^^

  • C Monty

    A sucker and his money will soon be parted I suppose. I for one have no need of a 2000 dollar scoped rifle for a round that isn’t accurate much past 100 yards regardless of how all metal your (unnecessarily) heavier gun is.

  • http://mobilechaos.net/ Concept

    I don’t see the point of comparing a $1400 rifle to a sub $400 rifle. That’s like comparing a S Class Benz to a Sonata. I’d much rather buy the M&P 15-22 and 4,000 rounds and pocket about $800 not caring that it’s plastic or not quite as heavy as a real AR.

  • Hunter57dor

    Or, i could take alot less money, go buy a used 10/22 and some custom parts, spend an hour in my garage, and build a much nicer, more accurate gun.

  • chupa

    Yup, $400 M&P 15-22 for me.
