Gun building question
I have been shooting for quite a few years and have just fell in love with pistol shooting, and I can't get eough of it.
Bought a Kimber Gold match with a .22 conversion kit a few months ago.
My question is since I really don't use the 22 kit much is it possable to build a .22 1911 around this barrel? Also how hard is it to buy the parts and assemble the gun? I am a builder and work with my hands and can perform the fitting required I am just not sure how much fitting and smithing tools are required.
Thanks for any help you can offer.

Here's a few places to start looking.

2400 did ya good, I will just note that your frame will have to be ordered/bought from a FFL dealer in case ya didnt know that already.
I just was not sure if machining of these parts was required. I did know about the FFL to buy the frame.
Now what determines accuracy? I know I can not build a custom quality gun but what can I control to build an accurate gun?
Thanks again guys
