Just ordered the .22LR conversion kit.

I just got off the phone with Yonkers and ordered that compact .22LR conversion kit for my UC2.

I also bought three extra magazines (the kit only comes with one), and the guy was kind enough to throw in three bumper kits--which oddly will be shipped out of Montana...

I got mine in nickel/silver finish, whatever they call it, just easier to clean. Should be here in five days.

...I am so glad now I bought that skid pallet of rimfires from Freedom Munitions last year. I hope it's enough...

You're going to love it Chico, I have both the Compact and the Target Kits. They work best with high velocity ammo.

All my .22LR stuff is HV in copper-splashed. It was purchased for my Ruger 10/22 rifle, which happens to prefer that profile, and there seems to be less soot, as I remember.

I'm just looking to ease back into shooting, and this way I'll be squeezing the same trigger because the conversion kit goes on my defensive pistol.

I called the number on the Kimber Firearms website and asked for "sales." It was actually quite easy.

Actually if you have a Cabela's, Bass Pro or big gun store near you there's a good chance they have one in stock. You can just buy it over the counter and take it home with you. It's not considered a firearm, no paper work or ID required.

We just had a Cabela's open locally here a few months ago. While they usually carry about a dozen various Kimbers, they do not stock the conversion kits.

I was in no hurry, and I wanted to also secure the magazines.

I'm already home by the time the mail arrives, so signing for the package is no big deal.
