Re: 1911 with a .22LR Conversion Kit
I have, and have shot the J.A. Ceiner conversion (alloy slide, sight move with slide, as the Marvel model 2), a Day Arms conversion, a couple of Colt units. While I do not own, but have shot, the Marvel #1, I will tell you it is on a par with a well built High Standard pistol, for both accuracy and reliability.
The Kimber, and Wilson (I think), units are built by Ceiner; sold by others.
They are on a par with a Ruger Mk1, or Mk2, as to accuracy, in my experience. Not quite target grade, but accurate enough to hunt squirrels with, for me. The Ceiner unit is the least expensive, and a bargain compared to the overpriced and unreliable Colt comversions.
Hope this helps....
P. S. The Day Arms conversion unit will out shoot most; no longer in production, but a conversion unit at $300, or a complete gun, bearing the Day Arms stamp (usually on an Essex frame) at $600-$650, is a steal, if you want the best!
