Good day, thinking of buying one for my G19. Pros / Cons from any owners appreciated
Hi Chief Mac
You asked about the AA Conversion for the G19.
I have been shooting one in competition for about a Year and a Half.
I shoot every monday night, about a Hundred rounds per week.
That puts me over 7500 rounds through mine.
I was shooting a Ruger Mk II Target model
It was just not dependable enough.
Since I got the AA Conv. I have not regretted it one time.
It took 2-3 Hundred Rounds Down range for it to get broke in.
Since then "It Hasn't missed a Lick" It is the most dependible
22cal pistol I have ever shot. I have had 2 Mk II's a MkIII and a
22-45. None of them were as good as my Little Glock.
You just have to get used to the light weight.
There are some ways to add weight to the frame, but it doesn't take long to get used to it. You can get a Brass mag well to add weight or make weights for the magazines.
The Advantage Arms Conv is the only one that the slide locks back on the last round.
I started off shooting Winchester Dynapoint in the 500 round box from wal=mart. But they havn't had any for a while, so I have switched to Remington Golden Bullets. They come in 500 round boxes also.
Good luck and Keep on shootin.
Love mine when mounted on my Glock 34 frame. Get some extra mags, those 10 rds go fast in a .22.
Thank you Rusty, Exactly what i wanted the good and bad (if any). I've got to get my shooting better past the old 7ft line. I think this may help me. Thanks to all.
I took My Grandson to the range tonight to shoot Pin tops.
We cut the tops off bowling pins and shoot them with 22cal pistols.
He had a great time and wants to go some more.
I guess I'm going to be in the market for another AA Conv.
I took my old Ruger MK II, but he liked the Glock a lot more and wanted to shoot it too. So we both ended up shooting the Glock. I like it a lot more too. I shot the Ruger one round, but like the Glock so much more.
Besides I don't want to shoot the Ruger too much. My Dad bought it new when the MK II first came out, so it is old and tired like me, that is one of the things passed down to me when he died. But I am sure that he would like the thought of his Great Grandson being taught to shoot with his pistol. So far 4 Generations have shot this pistol. But for the most part tht Glock and AA Convc is relegating the Ruger to the safe.
I like my AA kit, works very nice. The Wal-Mart bulk .22(federal) has run very well in it.
Don't run any lead .22 through it, I fouled my barrel,, it was a biitch to clean up.
I still wish I could buy 20 round mags for mine, instead of those wimpy 10 rounders. I'd pay $40-50 each for the priviledge of owning a hicap AA mag, seeing as there aren't ANY.
I'm with you a twenty round mag would be nice.
But I read on the web sight that the State of Calif has made it Illegal to manufacture magazines over ten rounds.
If we want more rounds we will have to find someone else to make them.
I would just like to see AA put a thumb button on the mags to make loading easier and less painful.
I use the loader that came with the Kit.
It works just like the Glock loader.
A little bit slow but it works.
Keep on Shootin.
I love mine! Sometimes it seems really quiet though, can't figure it out.
Where did you that (surpressor?) ?
Thanks, in advance
Some dudes van.
Just kidding, Form 1. I constructed it in our schools machine shop.
It is quite with gold bullets and accurate. Had the stock barrel threaded and had an adapter made to 1/2-28.
The picture was taken just after it was finished.
Thanks again, really nice...
good luck finding one for sale. AA is way behind on orders. last time I checked they weren't even taking any new orders. I need two of them before christmas and I'm concerned even about getting them by then even though it's only May now. My local dealers don't have them even though AA says check with them. Used ones pop up on ebay infrequently, but demand same price as new almost. Saw them on Midway's website too, but are all backordered there as well.
Let me know if you find a source with in stock items please.
I have one for my G32 and love it, I end up shooting it more than any of my other stuff.
Mine is for a G26 and the only thing wrong with it is its lack of weight. Its very reliable and I agree that higher capacity mags would be a good thing.
I bought one from ebay and paid $275 shipped with an extra new mag because midway was quoting the end of June for delivery. The good news is the unit was indeed as new mint in the case. It has been flawless after several hundred rounds of various brands of 22. I'm glad to hear that the WM Federal works as I like it, but, didn't try it because of the factory disclaimer. Anyway it is better in every way than any of the ones I tried on my 1911 pistols. regards
The Federal bulk packs ran best through my kit, too, despite the warning note from AA not to use Federal ammo.
Accuracy for my kit was not as good as my other .22s but the kit is still a lot of fun and cheap trigger time.
I have the AA Kit for my 17 in fact I have two of them.
I was shooting the Winchester Dynapoint Value-Pac from Wal-Mart, till they stopped making it. Now they have a Winchester Expert, in 500 rnd Box. There were too many Bad rounds in this box. I switched back to the Remington Golden Bullets. I have seen on here several people say they are using the Federals, I have not tried them yet.
Shooting competition, you need a shell that will fire when you pull the trigger.
