    Get the Advantage Arms kit. It is the best in the market. If your buying it, use only 40 gr. .22 caliber bullets. It prefers the higher velocity .22s. The kit is great to make your glock a constant companion.

    Picked up an Advantage Arms kit for my G26 three weeks ago and love it. Bought two more mags yesterday because reloading every ten shots is a PITA.^c

    I also ordered a kit for my G19.

    Had about 7000 rnds thru the Advantage arms unit for my G19. It jwas one of the best traing aids for fast shooting combat style you can have. BUT use Remmingtonn golden bullet bulk pac. They recomend it and it was almost perfect in mine. The Win jamed terrible, and the Federal though better was still a rnd or to ever mag or so.
    And extra mags are SOOOONICEEE..

    Do the G26 AA Mags take extensions like the regular G26 Mags?

    Quakeguy,
    I really doubt it would be able to use the extensions because there is no way to dissasemble the magazine.

    I just happen to have mine handy and took a look. You could grind of the lip on the extension (not the mag) and glue the exstension on to the mag. That would probably void any warranty on the mag.

    Will thunderbolts feed in the Advantage conversion for the 19? I only ask because I have around 2000 of the little guys and would hate to see them go to waste. Also, any other general feedback on the kit itself? I'm debating purchasing the kit or getting a Walther P22. Seems like it'll cost me around the same amount, but I'd like to stay with my glock all day...

    I've shot the Thunderbolts thru mine but it prefers the Remington Golden Bullets. Like $8.00 for 550. My AA is for the 17/22 and it honestly lives on the 17 (I like my 19 better for 9mm)

    I toyed with the "I can buy a nice 22 pistol for what I paid for this." delima too. There is tons of positives to having the same Glock trigger pull and the same glock sight picture. If its a training aid, its a great thing. If you want a sweet shooting 22 pistol, that's another thing. I have both. I love my AA and I just bought a Beretta Neos. It's a matter of what you expect from it.

    Good Luck
