Kimber 22LR Conversion Kit
With the cost of 45ACP going through the roof (*WHEN* you can find some!), I broke down and bought the Kimber 22 Long Rifle conversion kit for my TLE-II. I haven't had a chance to shoot it yet, but it's typical Kimber quality, slips on the gun in less than a minute, and should allow me to keep most of my 1911 skills sharp without breaking the bank, or depleting my stock of 45ACP.
It's very nicely made, came with a polymer magazine, all in a nice hard case.
At the going rate of 45ACP vs 22LR, I figure it should pay for itself after about 600 rounds. That might sound like a lot, but I go through about 150 rounds every time I go to the range!
