Beretta 92 22lr conversion question

http://www.berettausa.com/en-us/bere...e-kit/j9022pk/

So they finally got a few of these back in stock from Italy and I ordered one (yay for coupon codes...).

Has anyone here used one and know how they fair with different ammo types (rn, hp, high velocity vs standard)?

I have a Kadet Kit 2 for the CZ 75 so we'll see how this one compares but it's always good to know what they like; the Kadet will eat anything pretty much but it's all steel with a slide "cutout" vs. this which is Al with a steel barrel.

looks cool I never knew it existed. Kinda nice since the 92 already has the 'cut out' that they can get away with a aluminum slide.

I bought one off eBay about 6 years ago.

I have only test fired it, but it worked flawlessly on my 92 and 96 with junk ammo that I always have laying around.

While on the subject of conversion kits, I also have a couple of Kadet kits that have performed flawlessly both on the the CZs and my AT 84.

Also, I purchased a Witness .22 conversion that likewise has given me no problems.

I have 2 kits and both prefer to eat plated ammo. Both kits were jam-o-matics with lead wax coated bullets. That is the only issue I had and it was ammo caused malfunctions.

Cool.

I only knew of the Ciener Beretta kits before this. Good to know. Good luck!

Thanks for the info I'll have to see about wax coated lead. Unless it's target shooting I tend to use plated stuff in my plinkers so that shouldn't be too much of an issue.

I almost forgot one other foreign handgun conversion kit I have:

I purchased one of the Argentine Hi-Power kits, which also works flawlessly. The only thing I don't like about it is that it makes the gun look like a SIG, square and blocky.

Well it arrived, seems well made and cycles dummy rounds perfectly, now to try it out this weekend

If I'd known they made these previously I'd have picked one up a long time ago...
