parker samuel, That combination should work. Most of these conversion kits are ammo sensitive. I have a new Smith & Wesson E series 1911 with a Wilson Combat conversion. I have yet to find a good round. Still working on it.
I've tried all the 22 conversions for the 45 and the Marvel unit is the only one that I still have. The Ciener was both a terrible shooter, and a marginal company to deal with, in my experience. I've heard that the Kimber was made by Ciener, but now is actually made by Kimber?
If you have a 1911, you can make it a real range buddy with a marvel 22 unit.
My friend has the Ruger 22/45 and it's a camp gun with a straight grip. The Ruger 22 autos are very good guns and made here in the USA - all positive attributes.
I have several Ruger 22 rifles. A little trigger work and some effort at the range to find out what brand of ammo they like and you can have an excellent shooter. I don't keep exhibition guns. All my guns work, or they find a warm comfy spot in another safe.
You can't beat Marvel for conversions, or find a better company.
i purchased one of the gsg 1911 pistols.for the money it is very close to the colt sreries 80 1911.since i love to work with guns i made a few changes,i changed the thumb safety,hammer spring housing,colt sear spring and barrel bushing(later models have a new ss bushing)i also had dark walnut grips so i added these.after all was done the trigger pull went from 5lbs. to 3lbs. well last night a fellow member & i took the 1911 to our local range inside and fired about 250 federal 22's.and what apleasure,not one jam,feed problem or stove pipe.we fired at 30ft,50ft.&25yds.at the shorter range we both put them in about 4"and 25yd we hit the target abt 6".for two old farts in our 80's we had a ball and it was sweet to shoot.at the end my friend said let me put in 8 bullets and fire at fast rate to see if it will jam up,it sounded like a machine gun and not a problem,so if it was a45 look what we would spend for bullets abd not as much fun. whiz630
hoffman06 from what i read the browning is 80% the size of the gsg and a price of $599.00 compared to $326.00 for the gsg.also there is one out like the glock,same as the model 22 and i hear remington will be next in line whiz630
