WTB Rimfire Compact Conversion Kit

Anyone have a Kimber 1911 Rimfire Compact (Silver) that they are not using?

With all the guns you have I can't believe you don't have a .22 conversion kit. I have both the Compact and Target kits, the grandchildren love shooting my 1911's with the .22 kits on them.

What the heck, Arland....NO 1911 conversion unit in the house? And to think we were under the impression your 'collection' was complete. We're all shocked!

I don't head to the ranch without one of mine, as either one is great as a belt-gun for varmint control. Both are more accurate than they should be too.....a very good thing. Posted before, but merits posting again, mine in the field doing what they do; don't need a CF handgun for this.

They work as advertised too, and work very well. A maurading badger and my Target Conversion...along with a WW Power Point HP to do the job:



Or a goofy wabbit that blew through our rat camp, stopped for a "look-back" from 52 yards out. Compact Conversion this time:



The Compact unit is accurate enough for sage rats at 35 yards easily from atop their mound:



When rifle 'bench shooting' the rats, one of my conversions rides in my Galco SOB rig out of the way, but always handy for immediate use:



So then Arland....you "need" both conversion units. Your Ultra's will feel left out if you don't include one for them!

I'll be your "Purchasing Mentor" this time to 'help' you out.

***Well Chuck, Rick I guess the abundance of .22 pistols to choose from may be part of the problem. Unlike some people I had 2 Smith' K22 revolvers, Ruger MKIII, Colt Woodsman so never thought much about the Kimber conversion kit.
In a perfect world Kimber would see the future and R&D a "Suppressor Ready" Compact conversion kit! I would be first in line.
I have "looked" several times during the past two years and it seems they are always out of stock on the Kimber website. No biggie but now I got more serious looking.

I dont have a conversion. Neither do I have a 1911 22LR. I wanted (or thought I needed one) back in 2011 for the anniversary of Springfield but gun store never got one thru most of 2012. They did get one w/ a BIG knife in a glass case for some ungodly price, not for me.

Ill just stick w/ my Mark III-Hunter. Like it lots.

Man you guys are gonna make me spend more money aren't you?

I bought my son a Colt/Walter 1911 .22 gold cup for his last birthday (16) , and he LOVES it. So do I.

With center fire ammo being apparently made with platinum now, a conversion kit for my Kimber looks better every day.
