View Full Version : Ciener 1911A1 Question

03-04-2010, 10:55 AM
I want the simpliest of .22 1911 conversion kits, ie. fixed sights, matte-finish...

Does anyone have any experience with Ciener kits? I really like the look of their base model and the price seems right...

My concern is, I don't want to have to use exclusively "hot" .22 ammo...

Any input is greatly appreciated.

PS: I know, I could buy a 22/45 Ruger, Browning Buck Mark etc... I don't want one. Also, I know Ciener is a dick and has a bad reputation for customer service and fixing their own issues... I would buy it from MidwayUSA and I know they stand behind what they sell, so I'm confident that I will be taken care of.

Thanks in advance.

I have a base model ciener kit installed on a RIA 1911A1.

Seems to only like high or hyper velocity ammo.

I'm using an aimtech grip mount with a Millett multi-dot sight. Accurate enough for Bianchi cup, but not a tackdriver.

I like the ciener metal magazine, but you can get the plastic kimber 22 magazines a lot cheaper/easier. They will interchange with cieners.
