    Well...not really.

    Technically I posted this under "First gun/First 1911" but since I have the conversion I suppose this qualifies as a "first rimfire" too.

    My Kimber Team Match II with a Kimber .22lr conversion slide. I bought them more or less at the same time as a first gun to celebrate getting my FOID and turning 21. Had put a lot of thought into it and *had* to get a Kimber for my first gun, and given the rarity and expensive nature of .45acp in my area, the .22lr slide I figured would be a wise investment.

    First day at the range I put 300 Aguila interceptors and 100 Winchester Super X hollowpoints through it with only 1 FTF from a dud round. Cleaned it at 200 and 400.

    Shoots great, like it a lot, gonna test it with Federal 550 bulk pack next range session this weekend. I don't have high expectations for that, but who knows I may be surprised.

    Planning on acquiring a tactical .22, hopefully picking up a Spike's Tactical dedicated .22lr upper and a lower in the near future, soon as I can pay for it.
     
  2. Aiden,

    Nice setup!

    Rimfires offer a level of fun that's hard to beat!

    I have two Kimber rimfires, and both have their own frame. For the AR-clone I have a Tacitcal Solutions upper on a Rock River NM lower.

    Did you get the Tac-Sol upper new? How much did it run you? And how's the fit to the Rock River lower? I was debating which lower to get and one of my friends suggested RR, but I kinda want to cheap out since I don't think it would matter as much which lower I got.

    Or would it?

    I'm hoping to mimic one of my old airsoft guns with the ST-22. Once I get it, all the stuff currently on this gun is going straight onto the ST-22, with a Magpul stock/trigger guard instead.
