I'm interested in a full size 1911 in 22lr
i know they make conversion units, but, i don't own a 1911 so that is out
I know kimber makes one, but does anyone else?

Colt offered one for many years. It was called the .22 ACE. You might keep your eyes open for a used one.

At this point, I've no idea if they are dirt cheap because nobody is really interested in them, or if collectors have driven the prices through the roof.

Hmmn. Maybe I'll check the Blue Book next time I'm at work . . .

checked out gunsamerica
wow apparently collectors have driven up the prices
$800.00 for a beater
$5000.00 for "mint"
think I'm going to keep looking

Current online bluebook gives values from a high of $5k for a 100% Service Model, to $600 for a basic model in 60% condition. (60% is just this side of old doggie doo)
 
Someone at a Bay Weapon Collectors Assn meeting had a built up .22LR 1911 for $400 last year. I looked, thought about it, thought about it . . . and decided not to buy it.
 
I would steer clear of the Colt units- they never realy functioned all that well. They use some leather buffers which have long since dried out and rotted. The Marvel unit is the current best production unit on the market. Midway usually has a good price on them.
