Meet Tippmann N4-22 Elite Micro.
Yep. The same Tippmann that makes the most reliable/undestroyable paintball markers now makes .22 AR clones.
I just got M4-22 Elite Micro from Rainier Arms this Friday and today I have shot approx. 800 rds of Thunderbolt through it at FWDG range; three 25-rd mags were shot rapidly.
ZERO issues and relatively tight groups.
This could be a perfect trainer or an introduction gun, not to mention very cool range toy.
Urban/CQB/Home Defense tool? Why not? Just put a can on it!
Conclusion: the best .22 AR platform ever; worth every penny!

I didn't know what it was, so I looked it up.
Pretty neat.

Lol! Both of my cars are 20 y. o.; still no Arco gas here!
I choose Thunderbolt intentionally, to see how will this “pistol” behave with cheapest, dirtiest ammo possible.
It passed the test perfectly.

All day long! For multiple reasons.
First is the similarity to the “real” AR: both receivers are aluminum, chromed bolt and charging handle are very similar too, and disassembly/cleaning is no different, all controls are at the proper places. Most components are interchangeable with standard AR. E. g. milspec dia. buffer tube, drop-in trigger, safety, bolt and mag release, takedown pins, pistol grip…
Then, outstanding reliability.
Moreover, consistency out of 7” BBL is impressive, even after 800+ rds of cheap bulk ammo.

If it's going to be a trainer, what's the spare mag availability like?

First couple recognized links I found via Google-Fu showed out of stock.

They use proprietary mags., 10- and 25-rds. which are in stock on Tippmann Arms site or available through local distributors - Rainier Arms and FWDG.

Wait. Is this interchangeable dimensionally to accept a full 5.56 upper?

5.56 uppers are no workie on M4-22 lowers.
But you can install Gucci bolt- and mag- releases, or safety, or “custom” 0.1 lb trigger and they will work.
At least Tippmann says so.
