Hello All,
I'm a Newbie here and to non-WW2 1911a1's, hope I get this right.
I am looking at a Series 70 GCNM/22 conversion kit combo. My question is: Did Colt release such a package, 45acp & 22 kit, as a single package?
Inputs & comments greatly appreciated.

Welcome to the Forum,
I've never seen a Colt marked "combo" (Gold Cup/ Conversion Unit) sold together.

I have seen pistols and conversion units that were ordered together, but they are just sent as separate units.

How is this combo unit you are looking at packaged?

joe1969,

Welcome to the forum!

Most likely not. Back in the late 30s - early 40s, Colt offered Model O cases (sold and shipped as an option). They did offer a Pistol/Conversion Unit case. (Some old pictures on file. SM is wet.)

Best Regards,

P.S. For the forum: Does that (elusive) Colt three piece cased set exist,---Stevens Super Match, with the .45 - .22 and the .22 - .45 conversion units!?;)

I happen to have just the exact set up that you referring to, however, mine is just the luck of the draw. I was at the local gunshop about 15 or so years ago and saw this exact set up sitting in a box. No, they were not a set or purported to be such. But nevertheless there they were and I bought them for $1K and I am glad I did. Both are very fun and pleasing to shoot.
