Personally, I would be very careful in regards to the "used" part of the equation. You might be buying into someone else's problems. Try to arrange a test firing session before ponying up the cash. If the seller will not agree, I would pass on it. There are .22 semi auto pistols that will cost a lot less than a Kimber 1911 platform.
If you want to plink with .22, I would look at other platforms that are less expensive (New in box), and are just as economical and fun. Ruger, Browning, S&W, Walther, etc. all offer dedicated, accurate and reliable .22 semi-autos.
I have some experience with the Colt Ace and a Ceiner conversion. The Colt ran well, (on a government receiver), but was a little finicky, the Ceiner was a jam-o-matic right out of the box (mounted on a Kimber Custom II receiver).
Good luck with your purchase
