This is just raw video ( mistakes and all) of me running a new .22 build. It is a CMMG dedicated bolt with 4.5” barrel on a Aero Precision upper. I’m using a AAC Pilot suppressor which has been recored and made user serviceable. It is a sweet little setup.
Always double tap that last plate! Seriously though, nice set up. You have some really cool things.

I know it's been a few months, but I wanted to resurrect this and thank you, OP, for the inspiration.
I came into an AR lower over a Christmas, and was trying to figure out what to do with it. I ultimately remembered this post with your video, and seeing as I have my first .22LR can in ATF jail, a dedicated .22LR AR seemed like the perfect application.
I ended up buying a CMMG bolt and 16" .22LR barrel, sine Balck Dog mags, and built it out using a combination of stuff from the parts drawer and the cheapest upper reciever I could find (IIRC it was like $35).
This thing runs like a dream. I've probably got 1500 rounds through it now, and the only malfunction I've had was trying to run CCI Quiet, which I didn't expect to work anyway. It's crazy reliable, and a lot of fun to shoot. My 8 year-old went to the range with me today and we burned through a bulk pack of federal automatch as fast as we could load mags. He was dumping 6" plates consistently at 45 yards off the bench, and I got some good standing and kneeling practice in.
Thanks for the rcommendation Doc, I love this thing!
