    ...from a reputable company at good price...there is anything out there??

    Let me give you an example...Bersa stopped making their Thunder 22-6, I would have bought that in a heartbeat.

    The CZ Cadet (now discontinued) had a very steep price...more than your regular full size CZ-75.


    The 1911 22 LR replica I saw out there they are all invariably made of pot metal zinc alloy which is a big no-no for me.


    Anything out there?? Should I instead looking at a revolver??

    SIG makes the P226 .22LR or if you have or buy a P226 you can get the P226 .22 LR conversion kit for it as I did. Aluminum slide.

    After shooting the first couple hundred rounds with CCI Mini Mags it works really well with Federal bulk ammo though on occasion I will get one that does not ignite so I put it back in another magazine and then it does.

    If you go the conversion kit route just be sure you get the correct one as they differ if the P226 has the accessory rail or not.

    If you already have a 1911, you can purchase a conversion kit for it.

    If you don't have a 1911 buy one and buy the conversion kit.

    The CZ Kadet Conversion Kit is still available to fit on a CZ 75 or 85...about $400 and worth every nickel. I liked mine so much that I thought a conversion kit for my 1911 would be a good idea. Not so much. I have purchased from several companies plus a .45/.22 set from RIA none match the CZ for quality. Lately I have been looking at the Nelson .45/.22 conversion kits. That might be something for you to check out.

    I have kits for my CZ 75,Beretta 92 and 1911s and all work well on each. The 1911 kit is from Advantage Arms and it's quite accurate and has the last shot slide lock.
