Wilson Combat 1911 .22lr Conversion
You'd expect to pay about $16.50 for a 50 rd box (33¢ ea.) of hard ball .45 ACP ammo at your local gun shop. But why not shoot inexpensive .22's that sell for $1.50 for a 50 rd box (03¢ ea.) instead? This would save you 30¢ per round. But for comparative purposes we'll assume you went out and found a bargain on .45 ammo. Now your .45's only cost 25¢ more per round than .22's. At a difference of 25¢ a round, you will save a buck every four rounds and two hundred and fifty dollars after a thousand rounds. This is great savings, but your .45 doesn't shoot .22's. That's why you need a Wilson Combat® .22 Conversion Unit.
Installation is simple, just remove the slide stop, slide the upper unit off your .45, then install the .22 Conversion Unit. Once you re-install your slide stop and substitute the ten round .22 magazine that come with the unit, you're ready to shoot .22's. It's that fast and easy!
While shooting .22's, you'll appreciate the crisp sight picture of the fully adjustable rear and improved ramp front sights. When you change out the slide, the sights go with it so you'll be right back on target with each caliber change.
We all like to save money, but your objective is to become a better shot. It's quite common for shooting instructors to train with .22's. Since the .22 has less recoil and muzzle blast, students tend to learn faster with less tendency to develop bad habits, like jerking the trigger in anticipation of the recoil.
To get the most from your training, our conversion unit lets you practice with the same grip, trigger pull, safeties and action of your .45 auto. Once converted, your .22 has the same overall dimension as your .45 so you can use your existing holster. Oh, we've been so busy telling you how we're going to improve your shooting and save you money that we forgot to tell you about the scalloped slide top, checkered slide stop and superb accuracy.
