97 M3, after looking for a while my wife was able to get a great deal on it while i was in afghanistan, still has the factory stickers on it and a full carfax of service at the BMW dealership since it was imported and it is in showroom condition, the e-36 is by far my fav body style for the 3 series.

Always wanted an "M." My dream was the M5, but always out of reach.

Nice car!

I would love to have one of these and a couple of spare magazines. The picture may help explain what is in the "kadet kit".
the Kadet Kit has gotten rave reviews from those who own one, well made,
accurate and includes an adjustable rear sight

I want a Colt Service Model Ace. From what NGIB tells me it has a two piece chamber that creates more felt recoil, so .22lr has the same recoil as a .45.

That would be absolutely Swwweeeet for training!

Kimber and Ciener both make drop in slides where all you have to do is pull the 45acp slid off and drop this one in its place and swap the mags.
Wrong.

Converting a 1911 from .45ACP to .22LR requires a full top end swap, plus magazine and usually a slide stop.

Colt conversions work well. Here is a post war Service Model Ace conversion that drops onto any pre-Series 80 style full size Government Model, 1911 or 1911A1. The floating chamber approximates the recoil of a .45, which made it great for training.




The upper right hand (two tone) pistol in this pic is a Commander with a Marvel Precision conversion kit. That is an aluminum slide and does not feature the floating chamber. Very accurate, but no recoil. It uses Colt Ace mags with the slide stop notch ground off.

I sold the Colt with the OD slide and black frame about 2 years ago. The one with the Marvel kit is an old Randal frame I had left over. Killed the slide on it years ago (1911 slides crack) and used it for the .22. Can not remember if I ever seapped them out, but it would have been necessary to remove the firing pin block.

Edit: And the Randal is not OD, it is "Matte Dark Earth". I think the color is discontinued, but I still have a can of the MDE left. I used that color on my S&W Model 10-7 project a couple of months ago, too. Cool color.
