    Opinions, advice, and input appreciated.

    I live in northern Canada with limited access to hands on handgun shopping. I am an experienced shooter with revolvers specifically s&w 686 .357 mag.
    I am wanting to enter the semi auto line in .45, but I also want a gun that I can get a conversion kit for 22lr for cost effective fun. I can't see that anyone offers that. So I think I will have to look at other calibers.

    What is the largest caliber that I can get and add the conversion to? What is the .40 like to shoot?
    I see CZ has a .40 with conversion. Any others?

    Any input is much appreciated.

    Largest caliber that can be converted to .22LR would be the .45 acp.

    Shooting a .40 cal. is like shooting a 9mm on steroids.

    There are several after-market .22 rimfire conversions for the 1911 in .45 ACP, not necessarily linked to a particular manufacturer's 1911.
    Avoid the Ciener conversion. Others are much better.
    Look here:

    (Ciener has been shown to be unscrupulous in business, and his conversions do not work well.)
