    Saw this on a review I happened across from Shotshow 2016. Full disclosure. Although I've had a Glock 19 and a Glock 21 in the past, I'm not a Glock fan. Still, I figured those of you who are might find it interesting. These are full conversion kits -- just replace the slide and barrel assembly on your existing Glock 17/22/19/23 and you're ready to shoot the hyperspeed 22TCM cartridge from Armscor. According to Armscor, it uses existing mags with no conversion necessary. Check it out here. http://armscor.com/firearms/conversion-kits/

    none of the indoor ranges I used to go would let me shoot it because the velocities were too high. (I have the 1911 in 22tcm)

    Ear Plugs and Ear Muffs required. The case looks like a 22 Rem. Jet that I have and that sucker is loud. Fun to shoot though.:)

    It looks like the front sight is dovetailed, I wonder what kind of aftermarket sights it could take?

    It's a 556/223 case shortened correct? And same size as a 40 cal,so g22 mags work?
    Kinda interested in the 1911 version

    It does have a footnote on the website that the 1911 version requires gunsmith fitting. That's not surprising, but it makes it a little pricier and iffier than the Glock conversions.

    Looks like it requires a para ramp cut into the receiver making the original barrel useless. Given that it is $450 + cost of gunsmith it makes sense just to get the whole gun for $580. The kit makes no sense.

    If you get the RIA 22TCM 1911, it also comes with a second 9mm barrel that enables you to use it for dual purposes. Totally agree on why the 1911 kit seems sort of ill-advised.
