    I put 1K Remington golden .22 bulk-pac in an ammo can and ran them through my Kimber/Fusion dedicated .22 1911. It took a few weeks of casual shooting clays and Hineken cans out on the BLM as work has been a bit busy of late.

    A few dozen FTFs, mostly failures to extract due to a dirty chamber and extractor. A quick spray of CLP and a boresnake through the barrel & a toothbrush the breachface at every failure and she ran like a sewing machine again. The pistol is disturbingly accurate. My filler for the FCS and Kimber billboard did not survive the surface prep though.

    blue ti ceramic coat
    EGW sear & disconnector
    Champion sights (well worn)
    Colt trigger, grip safety, thumb safety, and mag release
    Wilson slide release and grip screws
    Vietnam era plastic grips
    Springfield MSH
    hammer from my SR 1911


    I could not be happier with the results. It was an expensive project but that's ok.

    This pistol will be shot more than my .45 1911s combined!

    Great plinker,.......would love to build one!
    I have a dedicated 22 AR upper, it's set up like my 6.8 upper. It's a tack driver,
    but darn expensive fpr a .22lr build! However, it's paid for it's self in ammo cost over shooting .223/5.56

    Excellent!

    My Kimber rimfires have performed well enough that they both got dedicated frames, and like you said, they get shot more than the centerfires.
