    Advantage Arms .22lr Conversion Compatibly with Polymer 80

    Anyone have any experience with the Advantage Arms .22lr conversion kit being successfully used with the Polymer 80/PF940Cv1? I’m interested in any & all comments successful or not. Thanks

    JAA,
    I built a Polymer 80 Glock 19 clone and have run a few .22lr mags. through it with no problems. Follow their ammo recommendations. Once I figured out what was going on with the 9mm slide and firing pin/trigger bar to permit the gun to actually go bang, just switching to the Advantage Arms slide/mag. and it ran just fine. The guys on this web site were a great help and support in trying to diagnose the original problem when mine wouldn't go bang period. Good bunch. Going tomorrow to try out my Glockstore 43 build which I expect to be OK. If that works out as expected, I "may" try a LaserMax guide rod sight which is not suppose to work with the SS-80. Want to make sure mine is working without a hitch before ordering a $200+ laser that won't work.
    Good luck,
    Don

    Don: Thanks for your input. Glad your .22lr AA conversion kit is working well with your Glock 19 Polymer 80 Clone. I ordered one thru the Glockstore and have been unsuccessful in getting any kind of response from them as to timing on availability. Will give them a few more days to respond before I cancel my order and buy from Amazon. As much as I don’t like Amazon my choices are limited. Thanks again!

    I have read that those kits can be ammo picky, it even has a suggested list of brands to use.


    Just curious, why would the lasermax not work with a ss80 ?

    Otintx,
    Nice to see your still here. I ask myself the same question. The SS-80 I built functioned great yesterday, as well as the Glock 43 I bought to get a slide for the project. I walked out of the gun shop with the 43 and 2 mags. for $485 and a new Glock slide would have been $400. Duh. Anyway. Using a complete factory slide assy. and the SS-80 uses almost all stock Glock parts which I've determined to be located in the same location/configuration, as close as can be practically measured, I think it's one of those Lawyer things by LaserMax? I think I want to change the spring in my +2 mag. extension and run another box or 2 of 9mm thru the conversion before purchasing the neat recoil spring laser. So, not going to happen in 5 min. but will get back if it works like you and I think it "should" and let all know the results. Old guy still having fun.

    Just want to let everyone know I received my Advantage Arms .22lr Conversion Kit from The Glockstore on 01/17/19 for use with my Polymer 80 build. Took advantage of the cold but decent weather to try it out on my Polymer 80. Bottom line, it worked flawlessly in 30°F weather. No issues except with one brand. Haven't figured out how to attach a file so I took a picture with the details and will upload.
    Based on my one day 42 round experience I am well ecstatic. I shot 2 rnds of Remington 1622C to make sure I could hit paper at ~10 yds. Than after I was done, given that I have ~1500 rnds of Federal 788BF, I loaded up the 10 rnd mags and rapid fired all 10 rnds. No issues! Hope the image comes thru

    Should have added that this is the first of many test to come to get my Polymer 80/AA .22lr conversion kit ready to shoot Steel Challenge matches in the coming months. All I need is for the weather to cooperate.

    Get the hottest ammo you can find or it will not cycle properly. One thing is you will become an expert in disassembling the slide because .22lr fouls those up in 500 rounds or less.

    Sounds like you have a lot of experience with the AA .22lr conversion kit. So far I’ve got 42 rnds through it. Cleaned it thoroughly and also polished the feed ramp. Looking forward to my next outing. Appreciate your input

    I have a Gen4 19/23 kit. Never tried it. Bought it second hand, never been used.
