I know Cenier and WIlson's make one, but who else? And who's the best? I've borrowed a cenier before and had nothing but problems-is this typical of them, or the 22 kits in general?
thanks in advance,
There was an article in American Rifleman about them a few months ago you might check out. (March '01) It made it sound like several models sold through gun manufacturers (Wilson, Kimber) are actually the Cenier with a little extra filing and their name stamped on it.

I have a Colt that works very well. The reason it was designed was for cheaper training tool for the .45. It has a split chamber to add noise and recoil but you have to use quality .22's with it. If you use cheap stuff the chamber crudes up fast(100-150 rounds)and must be cleaned. Accuracy is ok but not the greatest. I don't shoot bullseye,just IDPA so it searves its purpose.
I have only shot the Wilson one I think its made by Ceiner to . I like the sights on it better than others . EAA also markets one to. The only thing to shoot in the Wilson one is copper jacketed hi velocity . With them no troubles with the el-cheapo lead heads jams occur frequently . Just my two cents worth .
I have a Ceiner kit. It worked with my old Gold Cup and new Kimber very well if good ammo is used. High velocity works best.
It is very accurate and fun to shoot. Always buy extra magazines when you can. .22s are addictive and tend to be shot rapidly on occasions.
