    I Ordered from YRS, INC an IMI Kidon Pistol Conversion (USA compliant).

    I have an SBA Tactical SBA3 Pistol Brace (BOUGHT SEPARATELY) that I attached to the Kidon.

    It slides into the Kidon onto a rail. It is secured by a flap type lock, which seems pretty ingenious.


    You need a specific adapter for each pistol for this to work. There are over 100 pistols it works with, as long as it has a rail.

    The kit had a bag, tool, bungee sling, the adapter, and flip up sights.

    The front muzzle looking device, moves forward and off. 2152b9d78a951d05251d05ea5becc17b.jpg

    I think I’d need to take off the inner sleeve of the IMI Kidon Pistol Conversion to make it Suppressor ready with the size of my particular can.

    It has an angled Fore end, top and side Picatinny rails. The brace adjusts in 5 positions.

    I took a while to adjust fit. You have to adjust the flash hider, rail tension, rear adapter, pistol brace, and bolt handle.

    Feels amazing and it’s more solid than a CAA Gear Micro Roni by severalfold.

    To suppress it, I needed to remove the flash hider since my Suppressor is thick.

    I took the adjustable flash hider off, as well as the inner shell. No. 7 Torx screw driver. The Suppressor fit in beautifully without a heavy modification, thought I used a long barrel to clear a 1/2 shelf to allow unfettered installation of the Suppressor onto the barrel. If I decide to shoot the CZ 75 Tactical Suppressed, I will have to cut the shelf off. My blade is already coming to facilitate that.



    Using a Glock 17 with a threaded Glock 17L Barrel by Silencerco, I Threaded my T&J Tactical (Radford, VA) Suppressor right into it.

    I ordered just a US version IMI Kidon Pistol Conversion and added an SBA Tactical SBA3 Pistol Brace.

    I added my Olight Valkyrie to the side rail, and using an American Defense mount, I installed my Primary Arms Advanced Micro Dot.

    The Kidon already came with flip up sights. It also came with a carry strap, nylon case, tool, and QD mount

    The Glock 17 was stippled by a friend, and it has an Apex Trigger/Bar.

    I’ll sight it in tomorrow.

    Neat. The IMI setup isn't my preference but I like the looks of the Glock setup. Either way, always good to see people do unique things instead of the same old, same old.

    I took it out today.

    It liked Lawman 147 gr and Fiocchi 158 gr subsonic.

    It chocked on the aluminum, Blazer 147 gr subsonic.

    It was shelling it as slow or as fast as I pulled the trigger.

    There is a slight flex I noticed in the chassis when I put it onto the lead sled, though, between the stabilizer and the main chassis. The two components are held together by a pin, just like an AR. However, I was very pleased at perceived recoil which was not much. Recovery was similar to any other pistol Carbine or AR Pistol. The forward angled fore end was comfortable.

    I did have to remove my light (from the side rail) to place it onto the lead sled.

    Sighting on my range at home is not as good as the club, as I don’t have a steady support for sights. I only have an IDPA Target. The club has a fixed wall. So I’m going back to the club to sight in, over there. I need to build something on the side of the mountain for my own range.

    I am very happy with the IMI Kidon Pistol Conversion , particularly when compared to the CAA Gear Micro Roni.
