My dad's absolute favorite pistol is his Remington 1911. He just enjoys the heck out of it and I'll give him credit, shoots it lights out. For that reason, I've had the idea that a 22 conversion kit might be a good Christmas or birthday present. I have a few gazillion rounds of .22 to donate to him....we spent a lot of time shooting when I was a kid and I am happy to repay the favor. As we are all aware, centerline ammo can get expensive, so this is just to give him an alternative to 45. Plus, .22 plinking is a good way to wile away an afternoon! This is for plinking and fun. I've read up on Kimber, Marvel, etc....curious to hear any personal anecdotes!
