    I recently completed this conversion and I am very happy with the results.
    I documented the process in a flickr album.

    I am not that interested in doing this for $. I have a full time job, but any gunsmith or machinist could perform this conversion. I can answer any questions about the process.
    I have since added the Williams fiber-optic Firesights.

    very interesting.
    what did the extension ad re; weight.

    Looks like it greatly improved accuracy.
    How does it compare to the walther in accuracy?

    The barrel extension adds 0.5 oz, but the solid stainless steel compensator weighs 9.5 oz.

    I can't make an accuracy claim on the Walther P22, but length of barrel alone would make me think a 6" barrel is more accurate than a 5" barrel.
