Marvel 1911 22lr conversion questions ??
I have been looking at the unit Marvel unit 1 for my Springfield 1911. They are very pricey! A couple of questions for those who know the marvel units..
1.) How reliable are the they? Are they durable?
2.) Marvel has a steel lock back unit available now. Is this feature worth the premium (about $200) ?
3.) Your thoughts on other manufacturers that may be as good (or nearly as good) as the Marvel like advantage arms or TacSol?
My conversion was before the bolt lock but I really don't miss it. I have not had any problems with it and it shoots so well I hunt with it. By far the most accurate unit of the three different types I have. The EOTech is a bit large but fast for old eyes.
marvels are the cadillac of 22 conversions. the lock back feature is nice but I myself wouldn't pay the extra for it. the unit 1 is designed as a precision target unit and will be at its best with standard velocity ammo,like CCI standard velocity. I own a unit 2 which is designed around more of a training rather than bullseye platform and works best with cci mini mags. I got a deal on mine but feel they are definitely worth the asking price.
