Ultra Raptor II Stainless

I'm new to Kimbers and the group. I recently purchased a new Ultra Raptor II Stainless and am a little confused about the .22 conversion kits. The Kimber website is a little ambiguous in their description as to what models they fit. Their 2017 product catalog states they fit compact models but, the specifications only list 5" and 4" models. Will the conversion kit fit the 3" barrel Ultra Raptor II? Thanks for any responses in advance.

I have been doing some research for you and anybody else thinking about the conversion kit. It will fit a compact (4")inch or five inch 1911 it will not work with the ultra. I think it would look terrible if it did work kind of long for the frame, might look a little like Frankenstein.

Cool Hey Ya'll!!!

Welcome to the forum from Monroe, Georgia!!!

Congrats on the new Stainless Ultra Raptor II. I have one of those also.
I love the Raptors. I believe the Raptor series of pistols are the best that Kimber has to offer. I describe them as the world's only factory made "BARBECUE GUNS"!!

Sorry that the .22 conversion doesn't work with the Ultra sized pistols.
It is always nice to be able to shoot some less expensive ammo.

How about posting some pictures of your Raptor and include a range report, too. We like that kind of stuff. We want to know how your Raptor is performing.

Shoot straight and be safe!!

(Edited 7/25/2017) Well, I'll be dipped!! I stand corrected!! Per Arland, there IS a .22 conversion kit that will work with a Ultra sized pistol!!! Learn something new every day!! See that, even a dumb, fat, old ex-Lineman can still learn things!!! WOW!! Thanks, Arland!!!

CR38, welcome to the site from Tennessee. If you want a .22 rimfire kit go ahead, it WILL work with your Ultra.

Somebody on here (Zoomy I think) also had it working with a 9mm Ultra but it took some fiddling.

You are right Arland I did not realize Kimber made two different conversions. Thanks for seeing that. I guess I should have looked at Kimbers website I was just rading from another forum. I guess you cannot always believe what you read on the internet.
