    If my screen name is any indication, I like 1911 .22 Conversion Unit's of most any flavour. I own some nice early ones like a Kart, Day Arms, and now a couple of Marvel's. I also have a couple of Colt's .22 Conversion Unit's which aren't very accurate, or reliable, but with the right ammunition and their floating chamber, they are fun to plink with. The one on the left is very early Post War (mounted on a '64 vintage .45ACP G.M. frame) and the other is from the late 70's (mounted on a '75 vintage Series 70 .45ACP G.M. frame)

    Me too! Custom built lower with my Nelson upper and an Ultra Dot. Shoots as well or better than my S&W 41.

    Nice! I got this Marvel Unit #1 a couple of months ago. Mounted a Vortex Venom reflex. You are right that they are way more accurate than my capabilities!

    They are RoCo "The Master" stocks. I've owned this pair for quite a while. Here's a link to their webpage where I ordered them.
