    Haven't seen much about the new SR556 Takedown, but there's obviously some differences with the way the barrel and BCG interconnect.

    Pictures shown below, the .22 conversion BCG will not work because of the metal clamp around the carrier hits the tiny metal piece that sticks out of the back of the barrel

    22lr conversion for 556 takedown

    If the CMMG doesn't work is there one that does?

    Yup I learned the same thing the hard way. I really wanted an AR that could fire three different cartridges (.223/5.56, 300 Blackout/300 Whisper, and 22 lr). Guess ya can't have it all. I also tried it in my AR 556 and couldn't get it to fit for some reason. I'll look into it more soon. Worked great in my Colt though! Not a single malfunction. Clearly a great product.
