I'd be curious to see results at the same ranges with SV ammo.

The only .22 we have are 10/22 rifles and HV vs SV is pretty much the same out to 25, but I am often curious about getting a pistol because we only have a 25yd indoor easily accessible (it's over an hour to go shoot at longer distance.)

Again, just curious, as I've thought about picking up a .22 pistol.

You will most likely not see any favorable reviews with the AA kits using standard velocity ammo. They require high velocity ammo to function properly.

In fact Advantage Arms has a list of what ammo will work with their conversion kits.

I think Remington Golden Bullets are recommended and thatís what I settled on after trying a number of brands/SV/HV.

offhand, unsupported.

Yes, the slide was milled for the sight. We cut through the rear sight dovetail in order to keep sufficient material around the extractor roll pin hole in the slide.

They are not rated for standard velocity ammunition and mine will not cycle reliably with it. I do think that after sufficient rounds are run through the gun that will likely change.

Nicely done indeed!

When the maker recommends brand X ammo, that's just likely a marketing agreement with the kit maker. All high speed ammo with standard round nose profile should be OK in most conversions but some of the cheaper bulk stuff is just not reliably up to spec. .

Some ammo burns faster than others, giving you higher velocities out of short barrels, more recoil and better reliability in marginal situations. I've found the Advantage Arms ammo listing to be a good guide for their conversion kit and other short-barreled pistols I have.
