Hello every one, this is my first post.
My favoritepestolo is the 1911 platform, however, my favorite caliber for hunting and plinking is the .22LR.
I am looking for a reliable, 1911 pistol and a reliable 1911.22lr conversion, for my purpose reliability is first, second is accuracy and then that the brand of the conversion is the same as the pistol brand.
I had looked at the Kimber Custom II + Kimber rimfire conversion, I heard that Kimber conversions are not very reliable and hard to fit, and that kimber pistols are not well made compared as other brands, I had neve tried any Kimber, only Colt series 70 with colt original conversion, and got tired of the floating chamber always lead up and had to clean it every 100 rounds.
the other ones that I looked at, is the STI Legacy and Trojan + STI .22LR conversion ( Made by Marvel ).
I saw the Wilson Combat CQB + Wilson Combat Conversion but the pistol price is high.
On the other hand also I will like to buy a .22LR target pistol and is hard to decide between the Beretta 87T vs. Ruger Mark III Vs. Browning Buckmark "Contour"
Please tell me your good and bad experiences and give me your best advice regarding which 1911 pistol and conversion to buy and which .22lr pistol to buy for target shooting
My best regards & thanks to all of you in advance
