You will look back on this as an omen. As a retired engineer, I am a believer in system engineered products. (What does that mean?) It means every part of an assembly was engineered to work together, was produced together, tested as a complete working assembly and backed by the OEM.
A conversion kit is designed in theory only and the customer is required to complete the assembly, test and troubleshoot it until it is running. Does the customer have the resources, knowledge and skilzz to pull off what the OEM does as a business? Simple answer, NO
If the customer does get the conversion running they claim they like the idea of using their personal defense gun with cheaper ammo for practice. WRONG
for so many reasons! Its a 22lr for chr!st sake, not 45 ACP personal defense muscle memory development. I call BS on anyone that claims training using their carry gun with a conversion is beneficial for anything but fun. My personal defense guns are NEVER
changed from the condition I determined to be trustworthy to bet my life on.
My carry gun must be 100% dependable. If I make a simple change like a recoil spring, it goes to the range and I run two boxes of ammo with zero issues before it goes back in service as my carry. It remains the designated carry until the next change.
I will not shoot dirty rimfire ammo in my carry gun. My life depends on it!
I am a believer in dedicated rimfire guns. Your Kimber conversion was $350. My GSG 1911-22 cost me $286. That my friend is a no-brainer!GSG 1911 22LR $332.00 SHIPS FREE
