    I have one for my kimber and love it. I had an orginal Colt .22 conversion unit years ago and like an idiot I traded it. It was great.

    22's are often picky on ammo. Try a few different brands of standard and high velocity. Any conversion may also need a little break in time.

    I got a 22lr Kimber conversion kit for Christmas and put it on my Rock Island 1911. I have put 500 rounds through it with no problems. It is really fun to shoot!

    I have a Colt .22 conversion that I use on my Series 70 Gold Cup frame. The Colt's have a floating chamber so they will recoil somewhat like a .45 ACP. The floating chamber requires plated .22 ammo, so I usually shoot bulk Remington or whatever from WalMart. Mine has adjustable sights.

    I use the Marvel conversion which really works well. I have had 3 different ones and all shot very well. Use this for bullseye shooting.

    My Kimber unit has never choked. Knock on wood! It was worth every penny and spends more time in my holster than the .45 acp slide. ;)
