Your not missing much. A waste of good AR parts IMHO. I prefer my AR's to be 5.56 to 7.62. There's a couple of the .22lr AR uppers floating around between several local guys I shoot with. All of us have owned it at least one time and fired hundreds of rounds, but it always gets sold to nest guy. It's boring.
With the 10/22 kits you can built it as a AR, M1 Carbine, AK-74 and many other weird concoctions.
I burn enough bricks of .22lr with 10/22's and 22/45's.
As far as cheap training it's akin to practicing for the Daytona 500 with a Yugo.
