    Check out CMMG. With a few minor changes, if you're so inclined, their upper can look, weigh and feel exactly like a 5.56 upper. The Chiappa is is OK but from what I read but will not be mistaken for the real thing.

    On my CMMG I removed the little shell deflector, replaced the half ejector cover with a full and added a "for looks" gas tube and gas tube pin. Excellent accuracy too.

    I use a committed lower and found an extra strength mainspring was needed to reliably fire the rimfire case.
