I like the Sig kits. I would buy a 226 or 229 and get a 22lr kit. Same trigger pull and ergos and the ones I have shot have been reliable and easy to maintain. My .02.

You could also buy a Sig 226 in 9mm and another in .22, if you really want to avoid the conversion kit route. Of course you're talking about 2 fairly expensive weapons then.

Right now SIG is offering a 1911 22 FREE, if you buy one of their selected 1911 models.

The American Handgunner magazine did an article a couple of months ago on the same situation.

End result was a couple of guns done by Cylinder and Slide.

One a Ruger 22/45, the other was a Ruger 1911. Trigger pulls were within .2 ounces of each other, the sight radius ended up being the same.

S&W M&P 22 and 9mm is where you'll get the most bang for your buck in similar platforms. You could probably get the pair for well under $900, with 2-3 mags each. Generally I prefer separate guns over 22lr conversions.

Most of the options that can match that quality are considerably more expensive. The MP22 is a great little range shooter and the MP9 has become a proven law enforcement staple.

M&P pair hands down. The SR9 and SR22 aren't even close to the same size, sad as I love my SR9...
