22 conversion question..

Does the Kimber conversion have the firing pin block? What material are the slides made of?

No the .22 conversion kit does not have a firing pin block and the slide is made of aluminum.

No problem man, if you're thinking about getting one I'd say go for it. I've had the target slide for 2 years now and it's a tack driver, I just ordered the compact version, it should be here tomorrow.

You're going to like it fifthgear, just remember to use high velocity ammo with it.

Hey Chuck, is the conversion kit required to go thru your FFL or can it ship direct to your house?

I think it can ship direct, like the AR the lower receiver is the gun with the serial number.

No FFL required Kimber can mail it directly to your house you just have to sign for it when it gets there.

Mine was suppose to be in today's mail, I stayed home this morning waiting for it. I noticed the mail was delivered but no box with my conversion kit. I went on the USPS site and put my tracking number in and it said that they attempted to deliver it and no one was home to sign for it and they left a notice. BS, there was no notice left and no one knocked on the door or rang the doorbell. Now I have to go to the post office and raise hell again, the postmaster there already knows me by name from the complaining I do about their shoddy delivery service.
