I'd like to buy either a rimfire 1911 or Beretta 92 for plinking.
Do you know which conversion kits have a last round bolt open feature?

The original Colt units did.

There's a new 1911 kit that does, but I forget the name. Might be Advantage. It has a steel insert in the slide to take care of it.

Actually, bolt hold-open is not a real big deal if you can count to ten. Even if you can't, the Ciener firing pin doesn't hit the chamber if dry-fired. Like the Ruger MK II and 10/22, it's designed not to.

IIRC it is the Jarvis 1911 .22lr conversin that has the lastrd hold open. i believe they use the same mags as the colt.

That Jarvis looks nice. They even have a kit with a threaded barrel:

I’ve got a JAC kit for my 1911 that I got second hand I absolutely love it and would not hesitate to get another one. It locks back about 75% of the time… Not absolutely positive but I think the other 25% is mainly due to my grip on the pistol and the lighter weight of the slide. Could also be that the weapon is dirty; I’ve been doing about a brick each range session and by the end things are pretty dirty. Hope this helps.
