Ciener Platinum Cup Conversion .22 LR

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

A slide and a magazine is all you get with the Ciener conversion, but it's enough. We found this accurate unit didn't fit all our available test frames. We liked the ease of installation and the adjustable Eliason rear sight. Workmanship was outstanding.

Ciener's lower-priced fixed-sight unit would save $50 over this one, and may fit more guns.
The Eliason rear sight was pinned into the frame. This system may not be as durable as the Bo-Mar installation, but it doesn't need to stand up to .45s. It was a lot cleaner installation. We also liked the serrated top rib.
We thought the Ciener unit looked great on the Don Fisher-customized Norinco frame. After we oiled this conversion, it worked just fine.
