    Opinions on cheap 1911's to use as host for .22 Conversion

    I posted this in the 1911 forum several days ago, but didn't get any responses.

    I have a Kimber .22 Conversion that I want to put on an inexpensive pistol.

    I currently have a GSG 1911 .22 and would like to 'build' another so grandkids can use them.

    Putting the .22 conversion on one of my existing .45's is not something I want to do for this project.

    Does anyone have any experience with the various budget .45's such as the American Tactical FX45 1911 http://www.southernohiogun.com/handg...fx45-1911.html

    I'd rather buy a complete budget pistol so it would be available for use as a loaner .45.

    Any thoughts on what to look at and where?

    Ruger Mk. series, bull barrel?

    I always figured it was cheaper in the long run, AND less hassle.

    Thanks, I have two of them - both Mk I's one bull, one tapered. I have a Kimber conversion kit that just sets in it's box gathering dust.

    I have a habit of building dedicated conversions - not too long ago I bought a LE trade-in G22 to put my Advantage Arms conversion onto.
