Advantage Arms ?

I normally know what I want why I want it and usually don't stray ! For some odd reason , I'm fascinated with the AA .22
conversion kit for my 17 ? Cool factor ?

What I should do is just buy a designated .22 semi pistol but for some unknown reason , it just keeps popping up on my short list.
Like Bond , James Bond or something. Cool factor !

I've done a search , posts and replies and other research on the conversion . I don't personally know of anybody with one but I'm the kind of person that loves to touch and see things up close and personal.

As soon as I decide , I'll post cause I ain't even sure what I'm gonna do yet ?
PS: Ho HO HO damit ! Have a safe and Happy Holiday...!

I had one for a few weeks. It functioned fine, but the slide is so light, being aluminum, that it did not feel like a Glock.

I have three of the kits. All work great with Remington Golden Bullets and have about 24K rounds thru them combined.

I had always been of the "Shoot what you use." School, whether for competition or carry. But several of the people in my area that are GSSF shooters convinced me of the .22 practice value.

True, like DannyR says, the weight is not the same. But for trigger control and sighting they are great. I always finish each range session with my regular slide/ammo combination to be used to weight and recoil. Several of the shooters I know only switch to regular ammo a week before a match.

CMC has the 17 kits in stock now for $275.

AA should make .17hm2 conversion barrels. With the .17hm2 being a smaller projectile with the same powder from a .22lr it would probably be less picky with the ammo being used.

I bought one and love it. CC LR Mini mags work best for me. I had to try cheaper stuff and learn the hard way that it IS picky about ammo. That said, with the number of rounds put through it, it has paid for itself several times over in reduced ammo costs.
It isn't a 9mm in recoil, but draw, trigger break, live fire drills can be practiced. I also intermix calibers in training, but I also do speed drills changed up with distance accuracy.

I wish I could get the conversion kit for the other Glock 9mms.

I agree. CCI''s for me. Good cheap shooting/practice.
