Converting .22LR to 5.56

Hey guys I saw a Colt .22lr for sale at my local cabelas for 469.it was used but i thought maybe I can get this and convert it to 5.56 on the cheap?

Is it possible to do this for cheap money or am i overlooking something. Oh and the sales guy was an idiot, and he had no idea what i was talking about.

No, the Umarex (Colt licensed) .22 AR cannot be converted to 5.56, and you can get one NEW for $469 at Budsgunshop.com

No problem, they do look pretty cool... I went with the M&P 15-22 for a cheap .22 AR plinker, havent had a chance to take it to the range yet though. Budgunshop also has a 5.56 AR made by Doublestar for $659, thats pretty low priced, but I dont know much about that brand...

A few members here have got the double star.....I remember them saying it was great for the range and general use, but would not take them to war overseas.

For 700 dollars, its a good gun, but you can build a better unit for 800

Yeah I got kind fo excited at first thinking I could get away with a mistake on Cabelas part and come out with a cheap AR. I tried to run a quick search on my droid but couldn't find anything.

Yeah I heard way more negatives against the Umarex (Colt) than I did about the M&P 15-22... so I went with the 15-22.

Though a double star comes assembled and you can get it, clean and lube it, and then shoot it......no wait time on parts, build time, etc. Plus, in a HD capacity, its 10x better than a rock.....
