Default 1911 KIMBER .22 conversion kit.

My neighbor just got a brand new silver 1911 22 cal conversion kit from Kimber that fits pretty much all 1911. He asked if I wanted to buy it, market price is like 359.99 on brownells. I put it on my 1911 to see what it feels like and I was smooth. What do u guys think? 350 is hefty but it's from Kimber so that's why? I could get another gun with that price, tell me what u guys think so I can make a decision.

pass on it!! mine functioned for about 500-1000 rounds then just stuck case ftf after ftf. even when clean it was a jammomatic. for 350 buy a dedicated 22lr.

the only 45-22 conversion ive found that work as advertised is the sig p22x conversions.

I always wanted a Marvel, but had a Colt Service Model ACE for years.

I still want a Marvel and I have no ACE no more.

I've no experience with conversion kits but for $350, your .22LR options are great, like JonM said. There are 1911 .22's and things like this...

MPA 22T 22 5IN TB BRL EXT 30 RND $340.00 SHIPS FREE

which looks like great fun to me. Don't know how reliable it is though.

It may give your springer a STD or jinx it.

Take Jon's advise, just get 22 pistol. For that price your options are wide and your gun won't get infected.

That's what I am saying, for that price I might as well get a 22 auto rifle

I heard sig mosquito is not a good choice, but i think i read that other sig 22 can be exchanged to the particular models normal caliber. Like sig 220 22lr into sig 220 45.
