    I totally blanked on the fact that I still have the Advantage Arms 22LR Conversion Kit. It's one of those things that slipped my mind, and I could've sworn I sold it off. But hey, no complaints here; it just gives me more reason to broaden my options.

    While browsing Glock frames, I stumbled upon this intriguing find – the PSA Dagger Compact Complete Frame, priced at $49 with an additional $9 for shipping, totaling $58. Seems like a steal, but before pulling the trigger, pun intended, I'm curious about your thoughts on it. How does it fare in terms of quality and performance?

    EDIT: I just saw that it's MD Approved.

    The only thing I’ll throw out - and as info, not any deal killer because, I don’t know if it will impact your goal or not - is it seems the “gap” between the bottom of the slide and the top of the frame is Greater on the Dagger than it is the oem Glock …

    I came across this nugget of info after dropping some Timney Alpha triggers in a couple of our Gen 3/4 Glocks … I was (remain) so blown away my attention (and eyes) naturally turned toward the pair of Daggers sitting across the room from the bench I was working at.

    So, I did a quick search and immediately started tripping across posts by Dagger owners who’d tried the Timney Alpha’s only to run into bevies of issues ... and eventually I came across the post by the fellow who observed:

    - the “gap” between the bottom of the slide and the top of the frame is Greater on the Dagger than it is the oem Glock …

    I opted to just forgo trying the couple extra Alphas I have on the shelf in any of our Daggers (for now)

    Hopefully, your conversion will slap right on and run like a top!

    ymmv

    The larger Dagger grip frame is probably one of the most comfortable grips I ever held.

    I have a Dagger Full Size S. It shoots gud.

    OP, if you want to try fitment on one, lemme know, we can slap your .22 kit on my frame and see how it yeets.

    I just got a Dagger compact upper on Daily Deal. It has a threaded barrel and RMR cut so looking forward to getting a Holosun or something to go on it.

    I personally didn't like the Dagger(compact) frame much. It was too fat(Beretta fat) in the grip for me.
    Also, the internals were crap. The trigger sucked. The take-down pins are roll pins(worst invention ever), making field stripping all but out of the question. I unable to discern any difference in slide gap between the Dagger frame and any Glock frames I own.

    What I did:

    I ground the grip down a bit to make the backstrap a little more 'Glocky'(there is ample material thickness to do this without sacrificing frame integrity). Also replaced the trigger with a Timney Alpha Comp trigger. This is my nightstand pistol for now.

    What I couldn't do:

    The roll pins are not interchangeable with standard Glock pins, so I'm stuck with them.

    looks like I have two choices...

    1) Keep it AA Kit and buy the Dagger Compact
    2) Sell the AA and buy a Glock 44 to save headache.

    #2 ftw (we have enjoyed the first 44 we got so much we bought a second. With the Glock Enhanced Triggers in them they are range favorites!

    Boy howdy - whomever comes up with solid pins to replace those roll pins deserves to make a profit. (I was having to beat on them so hard and they still wouldn’t budge, I just had to stop ….)
