Gotta Haves – Part 3

A .22 LR conversion kit for your 1911. What a great training tool for adults and kids. And what a fun accessory. I’ve been using one of one make or another for over 10 years. So far, the best I’ve found is the one from Kimber. If you have a five-inch 1911 don’t wait any longer. This is a great way to enjoy your .45 on the cheap. Not a bad thing in this economy.

    I’ve thought about a conversion for a long time. I’m kind of cheap in that I tend to buy bulk packs of .22’s when I can get them on sale. What brands have you used that worked well in the Kimber conversion? I’ve got a Kimber Stainless Classic that might look pretty cool with a black slide kit on it…
