The lower (frame) would still retain the trigger and safety, grip and thumb.
With a conversion you could train with basically your carry/competition guns for the price of 22 lr.
The price of .45 ACP or 9mm is as bad if not worse than the two previous Ammo/gun panics.

I have worn out the breech face on my second Ceiner conversions. I shoot alot of 22’s through these conversions. Runs great until the case head cut out gets abraded and peened to the upper left side of the slide. Causes FTE and FTGB. Annoying as blazes. No amount of cleaning and keeping the breech face lubed helps. The slide is very soft and not durable for high round counts. Until I get a Nelson or Marvel unit I’ll be using the Mk IV Ruger 22/45 I recently acquired. I’ll rebuild the two Ceiner units with a new slide and sell it.

That is cool.
But wouldn't the handling change because of less recoil (especially for rapid firing) and (possibly) different trajectory of the bullet?

If you are shooting at distances where trajectory is a factor, use a rifle...

A conversion kit is for mostly the grip feel, trigger control, maintaining sight picture and muscle memory, though it will be a different weight and less recoil, it will help with all the above.
A different dedicated firearm will have differences, especially if not a 1911
styled handgun.

Now, if you just want a plinker small caliber hunting/rodent pistol, the Ruger Mark series are a fine pistol in their own right.

Approximately how many rounds did it take for a slide breech face to fail?
