looking for a 1911 conversion slide - recommendations
 
I'm looking for a .22LR conversion slide for my Kimber Compact II. Does anyone have any recommendations on what to buy and where to buy it from?

Matt - That's the 4 inch barrel right? You can get the Kimber Conversion for about $300 - but I think it turns your weapon into the full 5" barrel.

I have the full .22lr Kimber built aluminum framed pistol. Other than the crappy plastic magazine that came with the kit, the thing has been GREAT for training...

Yeah, I was really looking at the Ciener kits. They're 2/3 the price. I can pick up a Ruger Mk II for $300. I'd really prefer to keep the same controls as the 1911 though.

I have owned the Kimber kit. It worked but you need to keep the slide dripping with oil or it will stove pipe. I sold it and bought a 22 pistol.
