The first year or two ciener made conversion or kimber , they were called platnium series in blue box .. but the newer ones have busing and i think kimber makes now .Easy way to tell difference slide says '' 22 conversion ''on ciener, and says ''rimfire target'' on new one . i have had both kits and it is much easier with bushing on the new one . the reason i bought the newer kind , was i got tired of it being so hard to remove barrel on the ciener , i think thats why kimber did one thereself. of all the 22 conversons out there the kimber seems best to me. there are many 22 conversions out there for 1911s , just decide yourself must have with 45 acp reaching $20-$25 per box , i really like the kimber who ever makes it.
