Dont order from Ceiner.They have been "out of stock" on Kimber site for a very long time. Hard as hens teeth to find.
I think it's Ceiner (may have spelled that wrong?) that makes a conversion kit, the ones of those I've seen are more expensive than the Kimber and also not easy to find. I've heard bad reviews about that company customer service but I don't know first hand. I was going to buy a kit from the Ceiner website, had one picked out but I backed out the website and check-out seemed hinky and threw up my red flags...
The Kimber units are the same design.I have a Ciener 22 Lr Conversion Kit for use on a 1911 and it's a great accessory even though Mr. Ciener is a royal PIA to deal with. If there is a conversion kit that will work on a Kimber and it's reasonable, jump on it. Just make sure it's complete and functional. It may be difficult to get parts for a Ciener unit these days.
Arland.....if there's no dead critters in your pic, then how do we know that pistol even works?
OT: It seems strange that Kimber does not have these conversions in stock anywhere, as it seems that there is a huge demand for them, and demand always dictates production. So WTF?........
My LGS in VA has some kits on hand. Just purchased the 5” target conversion a few weeks ago. I know they have at least one or two of the compact kits. Let me know if you want more info, and I’ll try to learn how to send you a PM.Kimber is "out of stock" on these conversion kits. I would like one that fits my Ultra carry II. Does anyone know if another manufacturer's will fit? Would prefer a Kimber but if I can't get one will go with another brand.
Thanks in advance for any help.
Thanks for the instructions! Still kind of a “newbie”! Just waiting for a reply. I’ll be glad to provide our brother a phone #. Didn’t think it good to post a phone # on the open forum. Thanks again!Click on your avatar on the top header bar, you'll get drop down menu: select "Conversations" should be easy from there?
He should be able to buy direct from your LGS and be shipped direct to him, no FFL needed.
Wow!!! Things catch up with ya! From all the comments, doesn’t sound like a pleasant company to give a call!I posted a reply a while ago but I have some information, true or not to pass on. I've heard rumors fron several different sources that the Kimber magazines were being made by Ciener. At present, Ciener can't supply mags for his own conversion kits let alone anyone elses'. He's had some serious problem with the law and it's possible he's not ''free'' to make anything. A very nasty man to deal with!
