Default 1911 or Glock 22 Conversion Kit??

I carry Kimber Ultra Carry II and switch off to a Glock every once and a while. My question is: Would you go with the 1911 or Glock 22 conversion kit? Cost is the same.

I think you assume he means a Glock 22. Lol

Oh and I'd go with whichever was easiest to convert or cheapest.

If that's the case, I'd go with the Kimber. While I'm definitely not a 1911 fan, they are far better target/plinking guns than Glocks, and 22 is a target/plinking calibre

Many years ago, I had a little Beretta in .22 short. I'm not sure if it was good for anything, but it sure was fun to shoot.

But aren't they all, or at least the ones that do so regularly? Lol

Beretta Minx, 950. Good gun

I've got the big brother in 25, the Jetfire.

I think the .22 conversion kit for the Glock is cheaper, and its a lot quicker to change the slide in the Glock than in a 1911. That said I just got a Kimber with the .22 Conversion kit and have a Glock G22, so maybe you should listen to what I do not what I say
