More 22 conversion info.

I took my 22 conversion compact/ultra to the range today, tried it with my super carry pro first. 100rds not a single issue. Was very accurate when you consider I was shooting as fast as I could pull the trigger, I was just trying to run 200 rounds tru it in a very limited time frame.
I then tried my Ultra Covert with a Magwell. The magazine is made for a full size and a compact. It comes with a adaptor to switch between the two. I tried the ultra with out changing the adaptor and ran into some problems. You would think it wouldn't matter but it did. With out the adaptor the magazine goes in a bit to far and drags on the slide. Causing the slide not to go all the way forward. So I installed the adaptor and then the magazine hit my magwell and would lock in place but would only shoot the first round. So my next test will be to try it on my other Ultra, without a magwell and with the adaptor in place. I will post some supporting photos.

This is a picture of where the magazine sits in my ultra without the adapter installed. It's a bit to high and drags on the slide.

This is the magazine in the Ultra with the adapter but with a magwell. Will shoot first round only. Notice this is lower than the other.

This is the same magazine with out the adapter in my Super Carry pro. Notice it sits between where the other two pictures are. This must be correct because this work flawless.

I'm glad you posted this. I have the UC2, and I've wondered if the five-inch conversion kit on their website would be a direct replacement, or would I have to go with an after-market offering from another company.

I'm *assuming* that Kimber has tried their conversion kit on their own pistols, and it would feed and fire okay without ripping up the frame. Then again, I have no experience.

Wow nice shooting, look like fun. Did you have any misfires or light strikes? That is what I ran into with my SR22 & M&P 22, got tired of it and gave them to my nephew.

Tempted to buy one.

My pro worked perfect, 100% success. I will have to get a different ultra without a mag well and give you a new range report with the adapter on the magazine.

I finally got back to the range with a different ultra to try my 22 conversion. I used my ultra raptor and Installed the proper adaptor on the magazine, and it worked flawless. You could shoot one hand, two hands. Pull trigger as fast as you want. Sounded like a automatic. Lol not a single problem. My take on this product is its great if you don't have a magwell on your gun. It wouldn't work correctly on my ultra covert with a magwell, with or without the adapter on the magazine. I would buy this product again or recommend to a friend.
