Doubt that it will be very accurate.A .223 bullit is .224 dia and the 22 cal pellets I have measured have a head dia. of somewhere between .215 and .218 dia.
This was done a few years ago with .223 and 22 rimfire and I was sucker enough to try it. Shotgun pattern ay 25 yards is an understatement.

Right on Gary.This gimmick is the answer to the question nobody asked. Think: PT Barnum.

They're also teasing with a "miss-price" on an XL725, listed for 12.95 when you search for AG's. Also check out their video of the 725, that guy must be an animal! Check out how EASY it is to cock it! Really pretty funny!!!! :D :D :D

I bought something similar for a .44 mag revolver back in the early 90s. Basically a barrel liner and six brass hulls, the pellet goes in front and the primer in the rear. It worked ok but was just filthy to shoot. I ended up giving it away.

The .22 LR conversion bolts for the AR-15, on the other hand, are awesome and well worth the money.

How do you word it... "Air Guns" or "AirGuns"?
