I just saw this over at Soldier Systems. The US PALM Tactical 22 is patterned after the 1911. The frame is made by 1911 manufacturer Caspian Arms and the upper by Marvel Custom. It features a match grade barrel (1″ at 50 yards accuracy is claimed), threaded barrel, lightweight alloy frame and match grade trigger group. It is available with either adjustable sights or a picatinny rail. Both models are priced at $1,499.95. No cheap!

    i was wondering anyone know a cheap 22 conversion that works on 1911, for economic and training purposes. i havent been able to find any detailed reviews on the net.

    KIMBER makes one. As does COLT, they are all approx the same price. New the Kimber is $499.
