Dont' know if this is the correct forum, but, going to try it anyway.

I ordered and received an Advantage Arms 1911 Target conversion kit. I just got back from the range and I must say, I am totally impressed. Just 1 FTF and that was my fault as I was messing around with the last shell position. When I left everything alone, it worked perfectly. I also must say, a box of 525 Remington GB and range fee was less than a box of .45's. I know I am going to like this. :gun;

I have a AA conversion kit for my Glock -19 and it works great, I also heard the Marvel makes some outstanding ones for 1911 and they have been in Bus. for many years now.

Bud, I did hear that some of the units were bad. I guess that I got lucky and got one that worked. I have heard from another forum that AA has reworked their kits and that they are running like they should. Mine works every time even down to the last shot hold open!!!

Hi bud
Did you get your problem fixed ? I don't own AA for a 1911 but I do have one for a Glock 17 that was giving me fits until I figured out what was wrong. It wouldn't extract the fired brass and the next round stripped out of the mag would sandwich itself between the base of the chambered brass and the breach face of the slide. At first I thought it was an extractor problem but it turned out to be the ears on the mags. I seem to remember that the AA 1911 mag lips and ears are the same design as the Glock ones. Let me know if I can help you, I posted the fix on another forum.
