I was pretty satisfied with my 22/45s, particularly the one with rails top and bottom and a threaded barrel, until I saw a killer deal on the GSG kit @ JoeBob's. Came with three mags. Slide is lightweight, probably pot metal, but digests everything I've fed it, and it's plenty accurate.I've been mulling it over too. But I like my Buckmark so much, I can't really justify a conversion for my 1911s. It certainly won't be more accurate, gotta buy new mags, gotta fuss with changing slides (not hard), etc. I just whip out the Buckmark and fire away....the controls are almost identical to a 1911, so there's nothing new to learn/forget.
That said, .22 cal 1911s are kind of cool. Saw a cherry Ciener Platinum Cup available locally at $200. Almost jumped on it but for the reasons already mentioned. They seem to get fairly high marks though.
Surely, you mean 10 yds, not feet? Hard to tell from the way the sentence is written, but I can't fathom anybody's shooting at 10'.Seems to me it was 10yds with Rem golden bullets. I usually shoot targets at 10 and rotary ducks at 50ft. My Stoeger model 95 (HS Victor clone) is a touch more accurate but the Nelson is more accurate than any other 1911 conversion I have shot(Colt,Tactical Solutions,Kimber).
