Re: sidelock conversion kits ?
I have a 209 conversion kit that I use in wet weather on my Hawken--it works very well. At the range I use the standard nipple and no. 11 caps, so I don't know how well the conversion nipple would work if used exclusively. It is a bit slower to reload as you have to unscrew the top to insert a new 209 primer. Paid about $22.
