    Seen a advertisement for this in guns and ammo magazine today. Found it kinda interesting.

    http://www.nighthawktactical.com/22-conversion-units.html

    Just wondering does anyone know anything about it and would it be worth saving up for? Take a while cause it ain't cheap but looks like it would be a quality piece.

    Bob Marvel 22 conversions are reputed to be the best, period. This version looks very very nice. I will get one someday for mine.

    Yup, no sense in paying $100 extra to have the NHC logo. Look like they're having a special on their Unit 2 conversion.

    Of course, you wouldn't get the nifty NH logo. :tongueout:

    knedrgr et al:

    Please note that a Bob Marvel Custom Guns conversion (ref Nighthawk) is not the same as a Marvel Precision conversion. Mr Marvel left Marvel Precision in 2003 and now runs his own shop with his own line of products and services. From the site at
    http://bobmarvelcustomguns.com/22-conversion.html
    he was in cahoots with Advantage Arms for a while but is now working on still another conversion, apparently what Nighthawk is offering.

    Never been a fan of rails or do-dads on most guns but ever time I see that one I cant help but want it. There is just something that sexy about the way its done :drool:.
