Default Glock 19 Gen 3, 22 conversion

Does anybody have any experience with a Glock 19 Gen 3 into a 22 conversion? Where can I get one?

Do you Glock 22, or 22lr?

Haven't heard great reviews about any of the Glock 22LR conversions, purchase at your own risk.

Rather get a real 22LR pistol imo

I'm also interested in this. Trying to decide if I should get a dedicated .22 upper for my AR and a .22 conversion for my G19, or just buy a .22 rifle and handgun. Kind of would prefer the former, simply because the trigger feel and general handling would feel the same regardless of caliber, although the latter would also be nice because it would give me something entirely different to shoot.

For the cost of a 22 conversion of an AR it'd probably just make more sense to buy a M&P AR15-22.

Consider a Browning Buckmark or another 22lr semi auto . Practicing on a 22 conversion is no better than practicing on a purpose made 22lr handgun. The 22lr gun will shoot better, you'll learn more, and you'll have 2 guns. Fundamentals are fundamentals. Dry fire the Glock for practice. Fire off 300 rounds of 22lr, then switch up to 20 rounds on your Glock and head home for the day

I have a CZ Kadet II conversion kit that I shoot with for pistol but bought a Ruger 10/22 rifle as it gets kind of expensive to keep shooting .223/5.56 from my AR. I find that I am too lazy to keep switching my conversion kit so I have a dedicated firearm for my .22LR conversion kit.

Didn't realize they were that expensive. More of a thought that I'd had the other day when I read that a number manufacturers were (allegedly) going to increase the production of .22.

Well, perhaps with those new CZC sights, you'll find that you want to shoot that Kadet a bit more often, haha.

Asabino, I would skip a .22LR conversion kit for the Glock 19. Gives you another reason to add a new gun to the herd. Welcome to Calguns!

.22 Conversions often cost as much or more as simply buying a .22 pistol/rifle.

Skip the conversion and buy one of the many excellent .22 pistols out there.

The Ruger and Browning pistols are great right out of the box...

In the long run you'll thank me.

I have at least 6 of the Advantage Arms conversions. All Glock.
As long as you run the proper ammo through them they are very reliable. Just about 99% for me.
They are excellent in teaching new shooters since they mimic Glocks except for being rimfire. So less recoil/noise but the same feel along with trigger.
I would purchase a kit again no issue.

I give it a thumbs up. I purchased a conversion for my model 19 from Locks Philly Gun Exchange for about $280 since no one else seemed to have it in stock and added some extra mags for $23 each additional. I use it at the range for fun and practice and it doesn't cost an arm and leg to squeeze off several hundred rounds. Just be sure to use their recommended ammo...I've had less than 2% problem and this may be do more to ammo than product ...jmo...

I find 22 about as fulfilling as airsoft, and less fulfilling as airsoft when it's used for force on force.

I have Advantage Arms conversions on a G19 & G17 both function very well with the recommend ammo. I had the G19's slide milled for a red dot sight by Suarez International I've only taken it to the range a few times. I'm very happy with the results and would have it done again. The only change I'd make is to get the the adjustable LED vs the dual illumination because it would be easier to see the dot at the indoor range.
