    Uzi .22 cal conversion kit ID and price

    I have a .22 caliber conversion kit for my full size UZI that I've had for a long time but can't identify it because there are no markings on it . I took it out today and it ran like a top surprisingly enough . How do I ID it and how much is it worth ? I checked in the library and it may be a Group kit as it has an aluminum bolt but I'm not sure.

    Thanks--

    Hi,

    Need pictures of the bolt (top & bottom) and the barrel (overall and details of the feed ramp area). Photos of the magazines also (feed lips and overall).

    Enjoy,

    K2

    Not any more money than the kits I sell. If you have metal body mags that's the value

    Well that's not remotely accurate. The FA kits that actually run sell on GB for 2-3x what you retail your kits for. For example - https://www.gunbroker.com/item/927450754

    That is accurate. The kit you linked is brand new you don't have a clue if it works. My kits work as long as the host gun is not out of alignment. That auction is a fluke. My kits have been out of stock for 18 months. Do your home work not sure why your taking a poke at me.

    I agree with Arch 100%. A single data point is not a trend - Statistics 101.

    MHO, YMMV, etc.

    What you say is generally true for any of the full-auto conversion kits - they usually work pretty well as long as the gun is in alignment. Alignment is always the main problem, regardless of what brand the kit is. The kit linked above is higher than the rest, probably because it's listed as new and the extra magazines, but a search on all the kits sold show prices in the 2x-3x range, as stated by b_saan. Even the Action Arms kit for the semi-auto UZI (which is the lowest quality conversion kit ever made), sold well above the price you were selling kits for. That's just what people are paying these days. I'm not sure why you're offended by that. It's not a statement about your kits.

    Wow - I wasn't aware that Uzi .22 conversions were all going that high. I knew that the MAC .22 conversions are now high priced, but they've always been more scarce.

    MHO, YMMV, etc. Be well.

    The way I took it " The kits that actually run" seems to me he was talking about my kits not working. Maybe I was mistaken but I doubt it. I found two completed auctions for two FA kits and yes they sold for way more than current retail. That's not enough for me to say thats the current value not enough auctions to me those may have been guys that had to have a kit. Maybe the Group and Vector kits have some collectability. The metal body mags get around $75-100 each.

    The semi kits have been selling for good money for a few years. Nobody makes one and there always seems to be a few on gun broker for sale.

    Likewise; and if you offer a threaded 8 5/8" barrel option, I'll get that to use with a silencer as is the case for 9mm.
