more and more good suggestions coming in.... although the german sport pistol isnt exactly what im lookin for. i saw one at a gun show i went to today tho, it had a drum magazine in it. it was pretty cool. my wife liked it too.
ive tried every 1911 conversion other than the marvel kit and none of them work well. the only conversion ive come across that works is the cmmg ar15 22lr conversion and the sig p220/226 22lr conversion.
I have a Marvel and it is 100% reliable, and shoots very tight groups. But it puts them about 8" high. Marvel sent me their lowest front sight but it only helped a little. Might go red dot on that pistol.
