Bought some Federal Punch .22 cal Self Defense ammo yesterday evening and could not wait to go to the range early today and try it out in the P17. I liked it very much and going later to buy more. This time I took my time and actually shot a little closer than usually ( most of the time it is 12-15 yds) at 10 yds. Very accurate ammo and the P17 had zero problems with it

Good shooting! Yeah i keep thinking maybe a sr22 would be nice. Then i go out to the range with the p17 and lcpii 22lr. The p17 impresses me so much that i realize there is no need to spend the additional money.
The p17 and cp33 are just so darn accurate and fun to shoot. Reliablity is excellent if guns are kept clean.

With the Federal Punch ammo and the laser installed it makes a great nightstand gun for my wife. I think I will probably sell or try to trade even across as close as possible .... one of my Heritage S/A .22 Rough Rider revolvers and one of the Phoenix Arms HP22 and buy another P17... in Green if I find one.

Yep, mine has the very same results…

Been neglecting my other firearms since I got the P17 so I took the Glock 43x out today. Ran great, but that damn P17 has me hooked. Sooooooo I thought it was time for a new gun....ordered a Tisas 1911 45 cal. I have to break it in so that will give the P17 a break!:cool:😁

I know what you mean. The p17 offers so much. P17 and cp33 have been occupying me range time. I was looking at advantage arns 22lr conversion but it just doesn't compare to the value and reiability if the p17. Yes i would like to have more glock like trigger time but the p17 just rules.

If i come across a good cheap deal on a conversion i may do it fir comparison purposes but not likely.

Congrats on your new gun.

^^^^^ I was looking at advantage arns 22lr conversion but it just doesn't compare to the value and reiability if the p17. Yep, same with me. I do have a .22 Kadet conversion for my CZ P-07 and it is great to have, but would rather shoot the P17 and save the wear and tear on the P-07. The Tisas will give me some inspection and Fluff and Buff time with it at home

A basic full size with upgrades...G 10 grips, upgraded enhanced skeleton trigger and hammer, F/O front and U notch rear sights, undercut trigger housing, ambi/extended safety and 2 8rd mags instead of one. Have a felling I am going to spend way to many $$$ on after market mods though.

Yours looks nice. Fun base gun to tinker with. 1911 are great fun.

Did the same back when i shot 1911. Norincos made a great base gun.

I just put first rounds through advatnage arms 22lr glock conversion.
It may be replacing my beloved p17s.

I was considering one for my 80% build and my G19 but having the one for the CZ P07 just satisfied me for now. Besides if I bought one I would have never bought the P17, and I really like that thing!

I have always been an advocate of the p17 and cp33. They are value packed and innovative pistols.

I hadn't shot my glock 17 or rather a p80 build 17 in some time.

Wow! I was horrible. After 3 range sessions i began to get my accuracy and trigger back into line.

It started me thinking about an advantage arms 22lr conversion kit.

I found one new for bid in ebay. I lucked out getting it for 210.00

I ran some of my bulk ammo from various manufactures that give my cp33 and p17 trouble.

Right out if the box it functioned flawlessly. Absolutely no issues.

Today i put the same sights i have on my 17 slide and went out to sight it in.

After getting sights dialed in i ran mag after mag until sun was going down. About 200 to 300 rounds.

Again it ran like a champ. Only issue was under powered rounds not cycling slide completely.

The feed ramp began to get gummed up do i came home.

I had one of these many years ago but this current version of the kit is a huge improvement.

Polished barrel, ramp and barrel guide tonight.

I am waiting on the glock 26 follower and plug as i have read that those will allow mag to run 15 round.
Plus the mc phaden quick lightening speed loader has an adapter for it.

If that works then i am getting a few more mags.

I have to say that getting more time using my 17 frame , trigger and sights is fun. I like the idea of using same grip and trigger.

The idea that it is less ammo sensitive than the cp33 and p17 appeals to me.

My lcpii 22lr with tandemkross wingman plus 4 mag base plates yields 15 rounds in a smaller thinner more compact less ammo sensitive carry gun . Plus my lcr 22lr does the same.

I have to say that if after about 1000 rounds this advantage arms kit still performs like this my p17s will have to go by the way side

Yep i said it. I cant believe it myself. this kit combined with the lcpiiand lcr are uber reliable. less ammo sensitive . This yields more enjoyment at the range and more practicality for me.

Next is to reexamine my 1022 against the cp33 for ammo sensitivity and reliablity. Yes the 1022 is a bit heavier and mags are bulkier but i am getting to 5he point that ammo sensitivity is a definite consideration.
