.22 conversion kit for a 1911

Post by Trouter3 » Thu Mar 31, 2016 10:08 am

Couple of months ago I was looking to put a 22 conversion kit on my AR15 had to replace a few parts on the trigger group so I kinda lost interest, but while looking on EvilBay found out about a .22 conversion kit for the 1911 frame, ended up with a Ciener platinum kit with adjustable rear sights, what a blast ( little play on words there ) =:wvr accurate as hell and it takes no time to remove one slide and replace it with the other, put hundreds of rounds of all brands of .22 through it with zero problems, just a fun additional to the already tremendous 1911 auto handgun .....

I had the Kimber .22 conv kit years ago, now you see the dedicated .22 handguns in the sub $300 range and all the range and you get another gun out of it...the GSG 1911 are fun as all hell, the Walthers are as well.

what did you pay for the Ceiner Kit these days , I think the Kimber kit was like $ 329 many years ago ?
In the days of the old west a 6 shooter was as common as cell phones are today and just annoying if they go off in a theater.

Paid $250 has adjustable rear sights and a 15 round magazine. Heard a lot of bad s';t about the company and it being sued by buyers of the kit with delivery problems I had no problem at all nice and clean, I love the unit just like a Timex watch, " takes a lickin and keeps on tickin" only negative is it doesn't stay open on the last round so you kinda got to pay attention to the amount of rounds expended, also picked up from Midway a spare 10 round mag for $18 ...I'm happy as hell with it, I take it with the .45 slide and they change out in seconds ....
