buying the sr1911 but what 22 upper will work

Well i solved my delema on what gun to buy thays tye best of all worldds. I am putting a deposit on the sr1911 this weekend. But to solve my problem on what gun to get i am going to buy a 22lr upper for it so i can shoot 100 rounds of 45 and 250 rounds of 22 along with 150 rounds of 9mm for my 9c each range session. Alot of fun without breaking the bank

but what 22lr 1911 uppers will work with the sr1911 i saw oneember had two different ones and one did not work.

also thos will be my first 1911 tjat i personally will owb so new to the specifics on them. Any suggestions to an affordable upper 22 conversion thats good quality but a affordable price you guys can recomend

and any other tips of owning a 1911

and is it possible to have the sr1911 coated black im not a SS guy thats its only downfall but i want the ruger not another brand like para thatts around the same price. I am now a ruger guy after my sr9c and want to keep ot that way

To be cheap, I would go with a black or charcoal blue duracoat for the color concerns. Most any .22LR upper should work with the SR1911, I can't find a reason why they wouldn't.

For the price of the .22 upper, you could probably buy the whole gun.

Here's one...

Ciener Rimfire Conversion Kit with Fixed Sights, 15-Round Magazine 1911 Government 22 Long Rifle Matte - MidwayUSA

But, $200 will almost get you a reloading set-up....

To date, my SR1911 will accept the following:

Marvel...sub 2" gps at 25 yds sitting
Ciener...Same as above
Advantage Arms Inc. (.22 Conversion Kit Model 1911-22T)...Same as above
Colt .22 LR Conversion Unit ... would not fit.

Hope that helps...Rodfac

PS: the Ciener unit works as well as any of the above, shoots to point of aim with fixed sights and is the best value for the money. The "Commander" length (4-1/4" barrel length) will fit, function, and is accurate as hell on all of my Colts, a Remington Rand of WWll vintage, and the Ruger SR1911 offering!!! If you're looking for a shorter, more "packable" .22, the Ciener is the way to go. Rod

Add'l info posted elsewhere on the net:

I've been experimenting with some .22 Lr Uppers on my SR1911. Of the four I have access to, the Advantage Arms, Marvel, and Ciener units work well with groups averaging down around 2" at 25 yds, with Remington, bulk, .22 LR HPs of the Golden Bullet variety. I was unable to get the Colt Conversion to fit on the frame. Here are a some pics of the Ciener, Marvel, and Advantage Arms units. Best Regards, Rodfac

This is Ciener's Conversion Unit, in the "Commander" length; good functioning and it shot to the non-adjustable sights!

This is Marvel's Conversion, the 5" full size model with the first target I shot with it...range 10 yds, Weaver Stance.

Advantage Arms 22 Conversion...accuracy comparable to the other two, elegant, but pricey. It locks open after last round, the other two do not. The breech block assembly on the Advantage reminds me of a S&W M-41. Also of note: the slide stop is a two part piece...unlike any other 1911 part I have seen. In use, you position the side piece, to depress the locking pin, then insert the cross frame post! The slide notch for the slide stop is hardened steel, the remainder of the slide is aluminum.
