Advantage Arms Glock .22 Conversion Kit

Packing Rat has reviewed the Advantage Arms Glock .22 Conversion Kit.

Advantage Arms manufactures two models, the Target Model and the Law Enforcement Model, often abbreviated TM and LE models, respectively. The TM has a sleek machined slide, with an adjustable rear sight and a fixed front sight machined from the slide. The LE models I’ve seen appear to have similar slide dimensions to the GLOCK and “includes removable GLOCK OEM sights, which are adjustable.” The model I owned was a 19-23 Target Model that I bought new from a Petaluma, CA gun store. I paid way more than I should have, but that’s what I get for wanting it now – right? If you can find them, expect to pay anywhere between $280-$340. It appears that the LE model demands a higher price.

    I had one of these on back order for six months last year until I just gave up and got a Ruger 22.45. No regrets at all.

    I got one long ago (when you could just call up and order one on the spot) for my G17, and it’s really the only reason I still own the 17.
    I can’t shoot Glocks worth a darn, but the conversion takes the fiscal pain out of the re-discovery.
    I also grabbed a used Ciener Platinum top for a 1911 and built a complete gun off a wrecked Commander frame. That was even more worthwhile, as it’s practically the only gun my wife actually likes. Once, when I was trapshooting, she set up and popped off over 400 rounds at steel.
    That’s a lot of magazine-filling.
    She likes the Glock rimfire setup, too, but in her poor grip, it has a tendency to fail to eject. I called and the proprietor himself said it was limp-wristing, so that’s something to keep in mind.
    One other big plus for people in certain locations is that the conversions aren’t guns and you don’t need to jump through any hoops or risk running afoul of one-gun-a-month stuff, or, in the worse places, exceed your limit on total number of guns registered to your household.
    That alone makes conversions an important advantage.

  • They are kind of fun to play with. occasionally. Not very useful for any rapid-fire training though, because there’s almost no recoil. They are accurate with good sights on them, but the plastic Glock sights suck. I won a couple rimfire bowling pin matches with the AA conversion on a Glock 17 frame with a Carver mount and a red dot sight.

    My Review:

    • Suburban, I have updated the post with a link to your blog.

    I’ve had one of these ordered for months. Maybe one day I will receive it and can comment on how the thing shoots. Until then I will keep telling everybody that I have one on back order.

    Thats a good one, I luckly found one at a local gun store, well I say local, more like a 1 1/2 drive to New Orleans, but I hope it will be worth it. Looks cool sitting in the box. Light as heck also.
