I figure not, but as I was looking at one remaining in the WMT case yesterday that lower sure looked compatible, at least in form. I'm guessing the .22 lower is proprietary to the .22 upper only since its still sitting there.
It's not even a colt.

Yeah, Colt's 22LR AR is made by Umarex (sp?).

Like others have already said, if you get a .22 with a regular lower then you can change it out to anything you want. But, Colt's .22 AR, Smith's M&P 15-22, and Sig's .22 AR all use a different lower. I'm not sure what companies make their .22's with standard lowers, I know I've seen one from CMMG, but not too many others. It would probably be easier to buy one in 5.56/.223 and convert it to .22 via a conversion kit or new upper. You wouldn't have much more invested in it that way either.
