Ceiner 22 conversion kits

Beware of Ceiner conversion kits, worst customer service I have ever experienced. Let me correct that, there is no customer service. You can not email them and if you phone the anwering machine says not to leave a message as the call will not be returned.

You must have called Jonathan Ceiner directly.

order from elsewhere. I hear that he's an A$$hole...just hearsay of course.

Sorry you didn't know - John Ciener is generally regarded as a pretentious jerk and the kits are far from reliable. That said, if its a reliability problem you have they can be made to run very well, but you'll have to take matters into your own hands. Polish everything on the kit. Every moving part. Do so until its smooth as a baby's bottom. If its for an AR15 I would also recommend trying to get a dedicated .22 barrel by Rick Kuehl which eliminates the need for the problematic chamber adapter that comes on the ciener kit.

Thanks guys.

Solved problem the old fashion way, sold it to someone that was aware of the problem and wanted to spend the time and effort trying to get it to work. Lexter you are correct, have talked to the man personally. Shaggy it was a 1911.

Yep, been on the phone with Mr. Ceiner, trying to order an AR .22 conversion kit. Needless to say I ordered the same from Bushmaster some tome ago and due to its popularity it's on backorder. My Mom, bless her sould would say Mr. Ceiner must have been raised on a sour pickle !!!

Bad experiences here to with one for a Ruger Mini 14.
Bad parts, poor functionality. No customer service.
