FS: Marvel Unit 1 Conversion w/ Both Ribs - SPF

Post by Orpanaut on 8/11/2018, 1:51 pm


For sale is an early Marvel Unit 1 .22 conversion unit for a 1911.  Non-lockback.  Used with visible wear, but still in very good condition.

Comes with both the scope mount rib and the adjustable iron sights rib.  The sight rib comes with a section of Weaver rib that can be screwed on top of it or left off, your choice.  This came from a previous owner.  

Includes:
 Conversion unit with scope rib mounted
 Iron sight rib
 Slide stop
 Nut driver
 One steel Colt magazine
 One alloy GSG magazine
 Spare recoil spring, yellow
 Barrel weight (the round thing in the picture)
 Nylon zippered case
 No manual, no test target

$330 shipped to the lower 48 states.  

I think I have discovered the secret of posting pictures and can provide more on request.

Do you remember where you got the barrel weight?

I think the barrel weight came from a home improvement store.  It's just a steel donut with a 5/8 inch hole and a set screw, but you can attach it to the barrel to make the pistol a little heavier at the muzzle.  Unlike a compensator, it doesn't add length, nor will it fill with gunk (bullet lube plus carbon plus lead) over time.

The serial number is A0077, so this might be the 77th one they made.  The extractor is about 0.065" thick as compared to a later one that measures about 0.095".

Price reduced to $325.  If you want to buy it without the iron sight rib, $285.  

New Marvels are selling for $500+ with one rib so this is a great opportunity for someone who wants to try a .22 conversion on their 1911.

They made a lot of units prior to the letter prefixes. Then the letters began to denote design or manufacturing changes.
