Give me your toughts- I understand the Thompson 22's were a bit problematic-kinda liek the Fleming Mp5 kits which I wish I had a kit for but do not.

Saw Ceiner demo these at Knob Creek two years ago. Ran well in a Savage 28 and I think he tried it in a Hurley also.
I understand they need a bit of tinkering to get them to work right, but then they work well.
Three problems I have with these.
1) Cost. $500 bucks for a conversion kit can buy a whole lot of ammo.
2) ten round mags just don't make for much fun in my book.....one little burp and yer done. (and they are not thirty rounders as the ad is misleading....read small print. They are a ten round insert installed in a thirty round body. Fed. law is Fed. law!!
3) JA Ceiner was his usual self to me. I was alone at his table and after two minutes he looked up from the magazine he was reading and said "So, what do you want"?
I said I had a couple questions about his '28 conversion kit (I had my '28 slung on my shoulder and was hoping he'd demo an install and show me how the thing worked).
He said "I don't have time for questions. Buy the kit and the instructions will tell you everything you need to know".
He then went back to his reading.
I don't deal with assholes, no matter how bad I'm interested in their products.
I guess we both lost here, because I had a pocket full of hundreds and was seriously thinking about buying one of these. He could have (with just MINOR people and sales skill) sold me one on the spot.
Maybe I'll wait until the Ban sunsets and see if someone else starts making them.....if not, I still enjoy shooting .45!!!

I will do as you suggest and see what has already been said- For some silly reason I thought this conversion was relatively new and from what John said this is not the case. Look forward to learning more about your 9mm conversion idea, nothing against 45, I just have more 9mm laying about at the momnet but that can easily be changed.
JAC has not changed a bit and obviously never will- pity, its just a shame as he has shown some talent with conversions.

I don't worry much about a seller's personality; I try to judge the product on its merits, and take advantage of the warranty if need be.
