    Add on .22 kits

    ANy of you guys have those add-on 22 units you can buy for 1911s/Glocks/Berettas. How do they compare against a seperate 22 - like a BUckmark or S&W 22A?

    I have one but I got the cheaper iron sights just for plinking rabbits n such but it is pretty accurate out to 40-50 yards(Ive hit rabbits that far anyway).

    I've got the Kadette .22 conversion for my CZ75.

    It shoots pretty good, but my dedicated .22's shoot better, I think.

    For 1911's, the Marvel is the best of the breed. I plan on getting one of those eventually.

    Just always wondered if it was better to get a dedicated 22 or one of those kits

    It depends on your reason for getting it.

    If it's just for plinking and target shooting, get a dedicated .22 pistol.

    If you want to train cheaply with basically the same gun as you carry, get the converison unit.

    I have two CZ75s, one is a CZ75 and the other is a CZ75B. The CZ75B wears a Kadet 22 Conversuion unit; this unit is great and in fact it is the 22 pistol I shoot the most. Regards, Richard

    Good description. I've got several 22 pistols/revolvers and several conversions.

    I've no practical experience with .22 Conversion kits, but I came across information for one that was interesting.

    I found a cartridge, tiny little, smaller than a .22 BB Cap. I finally identified it as a 4mm Uebungesmution round. (Smallest cartridge, biggest name.)

    It was a German training round for a conversion kit for the Luger, and later P-38 pistols. It was strictly a single shot proposition. The illustration I saw show it in a P-08 Luger. The sub-caliber barrel apparently had a screw on (I'm guessing) chamber that fit in the 9mm chamber of the Luger. The barrel apparently threaded into this, then had a lock nut at the muzzle which also had a built-in front sight. Empties were poked out with a thin steel rod.
