Default Turn your Handgun Into a Pellet Gun?

Just wondering if anyone has tried one of these kits? It lets you shoot pellets out of your gun...

A little off topic here but, I've been thinking about buying a pellet gun, it'd be like having a .22 with a silencer. Plus i bet the 'ammo' is dirt cheap. Would make a good survival rifle imo.

If someone wants a pellet/bb/etc gun, I believe there are pretty darn good replicas of many popular centerfire model pistols for reasonable enough prices. And without having to worry about screwing up a perfectly good gun. If my perspective is off, I blame it entirely on my weirdness.

Default huh?

why would you want to do that? they don't even have prices on their website, and you can buy a pellet gun that mimics the feel of a REAL weapon for under $100.

I have a pellet "berettaa fs92" - feels just like the real thing, aims like the real thing, but no noise, and a fun thing to shoot and cheap at that.....

I imagine that someday someone would accidentaly fire a live round in their home thinking it was set up for pellets. I think real guns for real ammo and pellet guns for pellets.

That's exactly what I was thinking. It's not like they're hard to come by or expensive. If I want a pellet gun, I'll just go buy one.

Definitely, if i were to buy a conversion kit for my 1911 (or any handgun for that matter) it would be .22lr, not .177 pellets.

The answer to yet another question I've never asked.
Seems like an expensive & and complicated way to shoot pellets. A shotgun primer would at least double the cost per shot, if not more. I could find nothing about how much the actual device costs. It would appear to be a bit on the pricey side.
To be fair, I'm not the target market, as I already own normal airguns of various types.

Here's an old review I found:
