    Default Glock upper conversion kits?

    Ello all. Got a bit of a question that you guys will hopefully be able to shed some light on for me. See, in a wee four months I turn 21. You know what that means, and I dont like to drink. haha.

    Ive had a few ideas, but wanted to get any experience possible before I really start looking.

    Ive thought about getting a Glock19 (or 23) and then getting a .22 upper conversion kit for practicing with cheap ammo, and general target shooting fun in the back yard. Do you think that would be a good plan? Ive looked around, and seen various prices out there, Last year I saw some Police surplus G23 II glocks for sale for $330, and seen others around 400. I googled the .22 upper kits and they look to run about 200-250. How available are these kits, and are they worth the money?

    There are some other sidearms I have looked at, but I dont know much about them as far as price, reliability, and practicality. Some of my considerations have been the Springfield XD(m) in 9 or 40, the Walther P99 in 9, and the Cz75 in 9, and MAYBE a Sig 226 in .357 or 9.

    I have fired two different G19's and they were not objectionable, but the second time I also fired a Tarus copy of the Beretta M92fs, and did a considerable bit better at the same range. I have held the XDM and it felt pretty good, and the same for the P99. I have no hands on experience with the Sig or Cz.

    Really what I need to know here is my .22 convo glock idea a good plan, and if not, what should I be looking at? I know I dont want anything larger than .40, and I know I do NOT want a revolver. Ive thought of chamber's in .380, 9x18mak, 9x19para, .40S&W, and .357Sig. Any advice and first hand experience would be appreciated.

    Umm, I personally am against the .22lr conversion. That's $250 worth of ammo that you could use to get used to the kick of a larger round.

    Glocks are excellent weapons and I carry a G36 in .45 ACP. I would not go with the P99. I've fired one in .40 S&W and the trigger pull was weird. One of those first shot requires a longer pull trigger things. Of the others you listed, I'd suggest a P226. Excellent quality firearms. They cost about as much as a new M9, but spare parts and extra magazines are much more expensive compared to the M9 (that's why the government issued the M9 instead of the P226 to troops. Special Forces use the P226 though).

    The reason I figured the .22 convo would be a good idea is that I could shoot in my back yard and that would help with trigger control, stance, reloads, and many other fundemental principles that would be done a bit cheaper than using full on 9mm. Though, I do also see your point too. For the same 250, thats what, 1200 rounds of 9mm?

    Ive never fired the P99, but I know the grip feels good. But its kinda high.

    The XDM dont look too bad, and same goes for the sig. I want to stay at or under 500 if possible
    Sometimes, I feel like waiting for the right one is like waiting for a boat at the airport.

    Are they any good? Are they worth it?

    They're great, and really easy to use, and not to expensive. I think we sell them for around 150? I'm not sure if they have a .22 conversion though.

    I have an advantage arms Glock 17/22 conversion and I love it. It has decent adjustable sights on it. The sights can be replaced with your favorite competition or tactical sights so that your sight picture looks similar to your regular gun. It like Remington golden bullets more than anything else which is what the manufacturer recommended. If you like to plink, do a lot if training that requires you to work in movement or getting in and out of shooting positions it's a must have. I shoot 20,000+ rounds a year right now training for competitions. The advantage arms .22 conversion in my Glock and my Nordic Components NC22 dedicated .22 AR upper are the only things that make it possible. I usually finish my drills with full size/power ammo to make sure I train the actual sight picture into my thick skull. The only thing bad about the kit is that it is only available with 10 round mags. I bought 7 of them so I can load once and shoot for a little whole before I go through the tedious mag reloading that always accompanies 22 mags. You will want one if those $10 .22 mag loader deals that pushes the top round down for you. It's not as good as a lula mag loader but it saves the thumb.
