Advantage Arms 22LR Conversion for Glocks

with No Comments

With pandemic ammo prices, it pays for itself in one range visit. I’ve had this Advantage Arms conversion slide kit for about 3 years now and have put through over 1000rnds through it without issue.

It is ammo finicky like many 22LR pistols, preferring CCI Mini-Mags and Remington Golden Bullets. I’ve tried Aguila Super Extra and Winchester Super X’s but these cause failures to cycle.

Glock recently came out with the Glock 44, unfortunately we can’t get that here in CA. This solution works better for me because I can use my Glock 17’s frame, with its grip and weapon light for muscle memory.

22lr Accuracy Test: Aguila vs. Federal vs. CCI

with No Comments

Aguila Super Extra HV vs. Federal Auto Match vs. CCI Mini-Mag. Guess which ammo came in first in our test? The test results were surprising to me because CCI’s have been the gold-standard for high-quality 22LR. I rotated between the different ammo brands during the test to isolate the effects of barrel heating affecting the group size (any heating would affect all brands equally).
