your 1911 frame (and now your SVI/STI frame or Para Ordinance) to a super-accurate
.22 LR matchgun!
Convert any 1911 Semi-Auto
pistol into one of the most accurate .22 pistols available. Tests from a
machine rest have delivered groups around 1.8" at 50 yards ... for 100 shots
with inexpensive ammo (see the sample test targets)!
Compare that to extremely expensive European target pistols that boast 1-1/2"
groups (measured center-to-center, which gives you a smaller measurement
than edge-to-edge) at 50 yards for 10 shots. The secret to Marvel Conversion
Unit's astonishing accuracy is the same as for any breakthrough product:
an innovative and unique design executed by experts with top-quality production
techniques and components.
Take the design, for
instance, of the barrel locking system. The barrel underlug cutout is machined
to precision specifications so when the recoil rod is tightened on to the
slide stop, the barrel is drawn down tightly. The barrel is solidly locked
to the frame (only the slide moves). Everyone knows minimal tolerances are
a necessity for competitive target pistol. Here, there are
no tolerances because the barrel does not move or pivot, and
the barrel does not depend on support at the muzzle from a moving slide.
Notice also that the barrel is directly connected to the sight rib or scope
mount, again with no tolerances or play.
With a solid barrel-to-frame lockup, accuracy from a machine rest, with
the frame locked down, is guaranteed (this is mechanical accuracy). Also,
with the sights solidly connected to the barrel, accuracy of the shot via
the sights is also guaranteed (this is handheld accuracy).
As we mentioned, precision
components are also part of the formula. No more needs to be said about
the quality of the barrels. We also utilize aircraft-grade billet aluminum
and high-carbon steel.
All machining - barrel,
slide and smaller parts - is done by CNC for incredible precision. The slide
is made from 7075 aluminum and contains a hardened-steel breech insert (thus
a steel-to-steel breech-to-barrel contact and no aluminum battering problems).
Aluminum parts are anodized and steel parts are blued, both for corrosion
resistance and a rich appearance. Total weight is just over 16 ounces.
The Marvel .22 Conversion
Unit converts any caliber 1911 Semi-Auto with no fitting required. Installation

Commander and Officer Model 1911 Frames. Magazine fits all those models
also, but will extend below the bottom of the grip on the Officer Model.
Each conversion kit
comes with one tested Metal magazine and a foam-padded, Hard Case.
Please allow up to (6) weeks for shipping. Nebraska residents add
6.5% sales tax.
We now offer the original non-lockback conversion unit, the aluminum
