I am looking at a .22 conversion for my 1991. I have seen and read about several but anyone have any suggestions or tips on what to stay away from or what I should look for?
It depends on what you want to use it for, plinking or bullseye. I've had 2 Colt Ace conversions and I liked the weight of them but accuracy wasn't bullseye quality. A Ceiner kit was more accurate but I only need minute of soda can accuracy. Now I've got a Kimber and a Colt. The Kimber is a great bargain and I use it in rimfire steel challenge matches due to its dependability. I've got it on an alloy frame and it's like shooting an airsoft pistol. I think the bullseye guys will chime in soon.
I would strongly suggest a Marvel Precision unit.
Please allow me to offer an opinion on the Advantage arms unit. The wife has a unit for her Glock 17 and the instructions read to use either expensive CCI or Remington Golden Bullets because of extraction issues. As much as I've tried I can't get it to reliably extract any other brands. There seems to be an issue of the rim thickness or the recoil spring tension.Thanks much RLH, I have read for several hours on the others so I will take a look at the Advantage Arms conversion. You mention you have the standard model.......in your opinion, any advantage in going to the target version?
