    In a part of Utah that resembles Tattooine.
    Sure, there are a few different ones. I used the Advantage Arms kit on my G-22. They are good because you can get a lot of cheap trigger time. It takes some getting used to, because they are so lightweight, they feel weird. All my .22 conversions took some breaking in, after a few thousand rounds they run a lot better. And they usually like hotter ammo, like stingers, mini-mags, or velocitors.

    I've put about a thousand rounds through an Advantage Arms kit I got for my G19 back in January. As mentioned they take a while to break in, with CCI Mini-Mags (or the dirty Rem Golden Bullets AA recommends) they work very well. They are also picky with ammo in that some stuff they just won't eat no matter what, and you've got to keep it clean lest it begin having many FTE/FTFs.

    Running a Huntertown Guardian suppressor on it, it functions 100% with CCI SV (only about 60% without the can on) and runs flawlessly until it starts getting REALLY dirty.

    Best $300 I've ever spent on a firearms purchase...its that much fun.

    I purchased the AA junit for my G-17. It functions reliably with Ren Golden and CCI mini Mag ammo. The steel insert which providers slide lock back shears/loosens it's fasteners and makes the feature useless with time. Also the unit is all aluminum and makes for a very likght pistol. I would investigate the all steel unit made by Tactical Solutions.
    I have the Tactical Solutions kit for the 1911 and it is very well made. My unit functions reliably with either the Metalform or plastic Kimber magazines. The original TacSol mags were superbly crafted but very expensive - i be;lieve they now offer a plastic mag for much less.

    I got two of the Advantage Arms conversions, one for a Glock 30, the other for a Glock 22. With ammo they like, they are very reliable and accurate, and they come with adjustable sights, so you can set point of aim with their preferred loads. Both of mine dislike CCI Blazer .22s, but run well with Remington or Federal bulk-pack HV hollowpoints. I paid $260-$280 for the conversion kits, but they seem pretty durable, and the cost savings over shooting .45ACP and .40 S&W one hundred to two hundred rounds a practice session should make them pay for themselves before too long.
