Glock .22 LR Conversion?

Anyone have any experience with them? I was thinking about a Ruger Mark II or III but kinda like the simplicity (and ease of tear down) of the Glock kit. Looking at an Advantage Arms Kit for my Glock 22. Opinions? Thoughts?

Go buy a 22 pistol, they cost about the same as the conversion.

You can buy a Smith & Wesson 22A target pistol for about 200 bucks new.

I have one for my 1911 and I like it... beyond the obvious expense, I use the same mechanics of shooting my 1911....

I would only do it if I really wanted to keep the Glock frame. Otherwise just go pick up a .22 pistol. There are several .22s out there for about that price and probably more reliable than a conversion kit.

Well like I said, originally I was thinking about the Ruger Mark II/III but I've heard about how a PITA it is to clean. With this kit, cleaning would be Glock simple and like what was said, retains the same grip angle/familiarity as my Glock.

Just wondering if anybody has heard about reliability issues with it.

Cleaning a 22 target pistol is easy. You take the barrel off, slide off, and run a snake down the barrel. Then you use a brush and clean the bolt.

Put it back together.

I'll always recommend one buy a dedicated 22 (either rifle or pistol) rather than have a conversion for their existing stuff. In most cases, its cheaper to own another firearm than have the conversion.

I have the Advantage Arms kit and have a dedicated receiver for it.

I haven't had any problems with it.

I have had great luck with my AA Glock 21 conversion. It is remarkably reliable. That said my Ruger 22/45 Mk II had 4k rds down the pipe in the first 2 weeks and my AA kit has seen about 800 in 6 months of ownership and cleaning the 22/45 is not the PITA that you think that it is. Just field strip it, spray it out with synthetic safe gun scrubber and keep rolling. People detail strip to much. It just isn't necessary.

Get a 22/45 and an "Ultimate Cliploader". I can run through 2 bricks in an hour. The standard Mk II with the extreme grip angle is nothing like a "real" gun. I had a $1,200 Clark Mk II and it was dead accurate but comparatively pretty boring. I love my factory stock 5.25 Tapered target 22/45.

I looked on AA's web site and they say to only use certain .22 ammo. I would want a pistol that would digest any .22 ammo. For those of you with the conversions what are you using for ammo? I would like to add one to my G21sf but not if I have to be selective with ammo.

Ya that would be a major selling point for me.

Are the Ruger Mark II/III's finicky about ammo as well?

They eat anything but they suggest Golden Bullet - the cheapest of the cheap and the easiest to find.

The 22/45 eats whatever, at least mine does.
