1911 22LR Conversion questions (again, I'm sure)

I have a nice pair of SA 1911 pistols that have been mildly warmed up and both shoot better than me. I want to convert one of the pair to 22LR. Ciener, STI, Advantage, WIlson, OEM, re-packaged, ready-to-shoot, need to lap-in the slide, magazines work great, buy only Kimber mags, will feed any ammo, use only the good stuff, $249, $515 etc.. It's all sorta confusing.

I want the best shooting setup. This gun will stay converted, so no need for a 20 second change over.

Anyone want to set me straight? Thanks!
Best as in accuracy? Look at the Marvel Unit 1, or the TacSol or STI target kits. FWIW I just picked up the tacSol kit because i couldn't track down an instock deal on the Marvel, JC Weaponry hooked it up and will be hopefully testing today. Dropped on nice and snug, excellent fit and finish.

    This shop is an extortion racket. It’s the only one in town and charges like a monopoly. He can’t fulfill commitments and he won’t provide estimates.
