A lot.
I have a holster and magazine pouch with magazines that went to Iwo.

You rascal you.
I have .22 conversions for 1911 and CZ75 and would love to have one for P210.

As Jeff Cooper, "Mr .45" said: "You can learn about 80% of what you need to know with a .22."

That's what he makes it sound like.
But then my ca 1980 SM Ace has a 70B serial number and there are reported .45s with SM serial numbers from that period. Colt is not real careful about such stuff.
