If you have a junk 1911 frame you will do well to use a after market 22 conversion kit. If you have a good 1911 frame buy the 22 conversion kit that was made for that frame. A Colt 22 conversion kit. You can find them on Guns America, Auction Arms and Gun Broker. Gun Broker has been the best in numbers of items and price. I was told to only use a Colt on a Colt, Sig on a Sig and so on. Some of the after market kits can damage the frames. That I was told by a gunsmith.

Kimber conversions work well....can be found from 250 to a little over 300. Got mine on an old Norinco pin gun and it works fine with HS 22s

Looking to put this on a Taurus PT1911. With the research I have done Kimber won't work without some mods to it and the Advantage or Ciener 22 conversion kit will work as is. The Advantage will stay open on last shot fired while the Ciener will not. Both should work with out mods.

Not trying to steal this thread, But I am looking for a kit to fit a Glock 22.

I have an original Colt kit with the "sliding chamber" 2 piece barrel, Dedicated to its own frame. It works great shooting Winchester Super X Copper bullets.

When I tried shooting lead bullets the wax ? lube and fouling would bind it up with in a few hundred rounds.

? Does anyone know of a.22 converstion kit to fit a 3rd generation Smith and wesson auto such as a 4006,6906,5906 or ? Thanks, Richard

Why not buy a Ruger Mark III P45GC??

Designed to feel just like the 1911, and no need to change out slides, etc. (NOTE - there a few models of this 1911 style 22)

I saw one on Guns America for $230, new list is $335

Richard,
A friend of mine has a 22 conversion kit on his SW model 39. He says it will also fit a mod 59. Makes me wonder if it will fit the 3rd generations smiths. JM
