      Having been in law enforcement for over 30 years I am very interested in your Plinker Arms .22LR Upper Conversion Unit, the standard M4 unit. I have been following you in Police Magazine for several months. If this is now available I am very interested in purchasing one. I have a Smith and Wesson AR15, are these barrel finally available?
