.22 Conversion Kit for Glock 19

Does anyone have any comments on the .22 conversion kit for the Glock 19?

I'm fairly new to the whole gun world, but...learning quickly.

I'm doing a lot of target practice and just trying to cut down on the ammo cost.

Thanks
Frank

I would love a Glock in 22 rimfire but I have heard many complaints about the conversions from not working to ammo preference.

I look at it this way, buy a 22 conversion, you own a pistol and a half.
Buy a 22 pistol and you own 2 guns.

While practice with the one gun you carry the most is ideal, any practice will improve your shooting - the basics remain the same with every gun.
You can even carry them both at the same time. I do this a lot for shooting grouse or snakes with the 22. Or when the plinking urge hits.

I highly recommend the Ruger.

Bustedknee makes a lot of sense.

I have an AA kit for my G22 and I LOVE it. I shoot RGBs and have no complaints. Sure, I get a stovepipe once every 100 rounds or so, but that's not a problem for me. It's probably as reliable as the Ruger.

The problem is cost. My kit was upwards of $300. It does feel like I have a "gun and a half". I don't think you can go wrong with the Ruger and if you really want to use the Glock frame/trigger, you can't go wrong with the kit either.

Love It!

I got the Advantage Arms kit for my Gen 2 17 and it is sweet.

When I first received it, I didn't have and couldn't find the recommended ammo for it (CCI Mini Mags, 40 gr round nose not hollow point) so I thought what the heck, I will try some of the standard velocity ammo...well, just like they said, it won't work!

I finally got their recommended ammo and I fired 50 rounds with each mag (I bought an extra mag)... It worked perfectly; no malfunctions.

Accuracy? I didn't bench shoot it but I did manage to put 10 rounds on a 9" paper plate from 25 yards...twice!

It is everything they said it is.

Now have added another AA 19/23 LE Kit (first is a Target Kit)
and a G30 AA Kit.

LUV THEM ALL

I love my Advantage Arms 17-22 kit for my Gen3 G22. According to my records, I have about as many rounds through that kit as I have through all my other guns combined. I'm a relative gun noob though, only about 4800 rounds through the AA kit. Reliability wasn't good for the first thousand rounds or so but now it runs great on the recommended ammo.

When I still had Glocks, I had a Advantage Arms 19-22 kit for my RTF2 Glock 19. It was worth every penny. It was reliable and the only issues I really had were with ammo. If I ran Remington Golden Bullets, it was about as 100% as a .22 could be. I sold it w/ my 19, but if I ever decided to go back to Glock (trying out M&P now), then I would have no hesitation to get one at all. The mags are pricey and hard to load, that is really the only downfall.
