The instruction book for the SA Mil-Spec model cautions against using a .22 conversion kit. Are there any kits that do work with model?

I read the explanation of the Safety Stop on Page 11 of the SA Owner's Manual and the caution on Page 60. This seems to apply to newer models SA 1911 pistols.
I have an older Defender model and my owner's manual is only about 8 pages long. I have Ciener conversion that works fine. You may check with the manufacturer of a model you are interested in to see if they know of any possible problems as noted in the owner's manual.

instead of a 22lr conversion just spend the money on a nice RCBS press and reload and just shoot 45acp!!! if you wanta good 22lr, get ruger mark II, or the new mark III, in the govt. model, or if you want something high end a smith model 41!!! and then you'll have 2 great guns!!

I still don't understand the concern about a .22 conversion for a MilSpec pistol. Can someone explain why they are not recommended by Springfield?
