Was down in the Cities yesterday and discovered Gander Mountain had a gun liquidation due to the closing of one of their stores. The guns were distributed to their Forest Lake, Blaine, and Lakeville stores.There were some good deals to be had as well as more fair ones. I was able to pick up an unfired Kimber Target II in 45 ACP for $500, an NIB Springfield 1911A1 GI in olive drab for $300, and a Kimber .22 LR conversion kit for $180. There were some very good deals on 9mm Berettas of various types as well as some Ruger Super Redhawks in both 454 and 44 mag and Blackhawks in 44 mag and they had new Bersa .380s for as little as $150. Better deals were to be found in rifles and shotguns though I only picked up two; a stainless laminated Ruger 10/22 for $160 and a Yugo M-24 bolt for $80. I had my eye on a Browning Citori Lightning Feather in .410 but resisted the urge this time. I have to go back down there again on Sunday and I hope I am able to resist the urge, the pocketbook is low enough already.

Restraint is easy when the credit card is maxed out!!! The Gander card I have has a $3000 limit and the payment from Christmas has not been processed yet so I don't have as much to spend as I like. If the payment is not credited by the end of today, I will have to set my sights on something else. I can remember a couple other guns there that will fit under my limit; they also stated they are bringing out new guns each day to get people to come in each day of the sale. Yesterday they had new Springfield XD 45s out for $425 each. I'm glad I wasn't there or I might have a couple more of those. I'll have to check them out again tomorrow, there isn't anything I need but I am always looking for future trade material.

Let me know how the .22 conversion kit works & the group it shoots. Hows the fit & finish? What type handgun will you be using it on? I've been looking at several of the kits on the internet & would like to get one.

dovehunter,
The 22 conversion slide fits and works on both of the guns I picked up. Fit and finish is good and accuracy is good enough for my primary purposes. I have not searched for the most accurate loading yet but the Remington Golden Bullets I fired are good enough for plinking and training. The most accurate kits are made by Marvel and they are awesome to use. I borrowed a Marvel conversion a while back and it rivaled my S&W 41 in accuracy. Marvel is also the only manufacturer of 22 LR conversion kits for double stack 1911 models if you have one of those.
