Advantage Arms 1911-22T Target Conversion Unit

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

Our Fisher-Norinco 1911 with its perfect trigger was not ideal for this conversion unit because of its tightened frame. There was just enough drag to prevent perfect functioning, giving failures to eject and feed. But the unit performed perfectly on the Valtro frame.

Looking like a Bo-Mar, the rear sight had positive click stops and gave a superb sight picture, a feature shared by all three conversions.
Advantage did a good job of packaging the unit. They worked well once we got 'em loaded, which was a chore. Each item was in a fitted compartment cut into heavy foam. The package included instructions, cleaning tools, oil, and the special wrench to attach the conversion to our selected 1911. Also in the box was an unidentified rod that was useful for loading the otherwise tricky magazines.
At the lower left are the wrench that turns the spring's guide rod tight against the special two-piece cross pin or slide stop, also seen at the lower left. Getting the parts apart to this extent was easy. Just unscrew the guide rod. Getting that spring back in place was not easy.
