I would guess that maybe conversion kits by other makers would work, don't know. Others here are more up on 1911 stuff. Guys?

If they ever do an Officer's size SR-1911, that would be great if available as a dedicated .22LR.

Try the Advantage Arms web site to check out their 22 conversion. they are made to fit any 1911 that is built on the military specs. I have one on a 70's Colt 1911 and would buy another one without any hesitation. Very accurate and reliable and I like the feature where the slide locks back on the last round that most conversations do not have.

I have had reliable feeding and ejection even with value pack ammo that is rated at 1260 fps.

for the price of a conversion kit you could find a 22/45.

A 22/45 isnt a 1911... not even close. Sure, it mimics the 1911 controls, but again... not even close...

If you dont get the AA conversion, you can always go with something like this for the same money as the conversion...

The Target Model is a bit more expensive, but since its design closely resembles that of the Marvel Unit 1, it will be quite a lot more accurate
The MU1 is arguably THE most accurate 22 Conversion available on the market

I just bought an Advantage Arms .22 Conversion kit for my SR 1911 CMD. The Commander Kit wasn't available so, I asked the supplier if a 'Standard Kit' would fit my CMD. They said 'Yes' so, I ordered one. After installing it, I noticed a gap between the end of the frame and slide. You can see the spring and guide rod. Does anyone know if a Government model and a Commander model have different lengths to the frame? Has anyone had or know of this issue? Thanks for any info. Al

Alycat, Yes, the Commander sized frame has a shorter spring cover. All other frame dimensions are exactly the same as a full sized 1911.

I bought a Kimber 22 LR conversion kit for my Stainless Target Kimber. The kit also works great on my Ruger SR1911. That said, I wish I would have bought the Colt Trophy as displayed in weblance's post.

Here's my Kimber kit with my Kimber 1911 Target:

Do you have a gap between the end of the frame and the new slide where you can see the spring and guide rod?

Ok thanks, this doesn't seem to be common knowledge. I've been goin nuts trying to find out, as I don't have a Government model, only the Commander but still, vendors seem to think they are the same. I returned the AA .22 kit today for a refund because of that gap. Just didn't look right to have any internals showing....haha

Ya, that Gold Cup is nice but, unfortunately, we can't get it in Mass. Is the Kimber kit you have only for the full size model or will it also fit my Commander?... without leaving a gap between the frame and slide?

Alycat, The Kimber kit will also leave a gap at the spring cover ... it's just the nature of the beast with CMD frames. That said, even though it looks a bit goofy, any 22 cal conversion kit will work with a CMD frame.
