    Does a Springfield GI Champion (Commander length) have the same frame size as the Springfield GI Full size (Government length)?

    I would prefer the Champion but I want to utilize a 22 conversion kit and that will only work on a Government size frame.

    The Commander frame is shorter.

    I already have carry 1911s this was to be a beater gun to experiment with.

    Oh well, I just I am getting the full size.

    What is the best 22 Conversion Kit for the full size frame?

    Marvel conversion for tight groups but there are less expensive ones for plinking.
