All that hype with their marketing: "Train with your 1911 at pennies to the ammo dollar" Pfff!
But with 1500 rounds through mine in a year, it might have actually been a good purchase and value for the $150? $200? I bought it 8 years ago, I dunno what I paid for it. Used.
Sure a Ruger MkIII of some flavor would have served. And cost about the same, essentially. But I am getting much more out of the conversion kit that I thought I would. Beyond my wildest dreams.
I am starting to miss my new 9mm. It's in the shop, still, to get a holster made. Delayed a bit because the shop is moving to new digs. Darn it. And YOU try to rush a gunsmith. I dare you. It's the assistant gunsmith making the holster, but still.
I am looking forward to seeing the new shop.
But all good things come to an end. My long familiarity with the .22 kit should be waning as I graduate to shooting poorly with centerfire ammo instead. At least I hope to. Too shoot 1500 + rounds of 9mm instead of .22. Let's see.
From an Away Game... - From discussion elsewhere... This is the single best thing about striker fired handguns. Like rifles, nobody can tell at a glance if they're cocked or not....
