Kimber Adds .22 LR Conversion Kit for Compact 1911 Pistols

posted on January 31, 2013

Chambered in .22 LR, the Rimfire Compact Conversion Kit fits Kimber Ultra, Compact and Pro models; as well as other Mil-Spec 1911 brands with similar-size frames. A fantastic training tool with low recoil and light muzzle blast, installation takes just moments and does not require any tools or gunsmithing. Best of all, a conversion kit pays for itself in ammunition savings after only a few trips to the range.

Slides are machined from aluminum and the 4-inch barrels are cut to critical match grade dimensions for accuracy. Fixed, low-profile sights are secured in machined dovetails and edges are rounded and blended. Conversions are designed to operate with high-velocity .22 LR ammunition and maintenance is similar to a centerfire 1911. Rimfire Compact Conversion Kits include a spacer that blends the 10-round magazine with a short-gripped pistol like the Kimber Ultra. A shorter, flush fitting, eight-round magazine is also offered as an accessory.

Rimfire conversion kits are not classified as a firearm and can be ordered directly from Kimber at They are also available from Kimber Master Dealers across America.

Suggested retail price for a Rimfire Compact Conversion Kit is $333.
