I have the non threaded .22 kit and it works very well with cheap bulk 22 (Just as Czechpoint stated). All 4 magazines and upper work great. Cheap range days may pay for itself in time :)

I replaced non-threaded with threaded and has also functioned great.

Thats good to hear.  I just snagged a threaded kit today since they popped back in stock.  Need to break down and get a .22 can now.  Been putting it off since the Hybrid 46 works on literally anything else I can possible mount it on aside from rimfires.

Congrats on landing the upper. I wanted the the threaded but opted for what was available. It’s a fun shooter. I wish aftermarket would support a red dot mount. I resorted to having one 3D printed, making use of the flat slide top, grooves and steel\earth magnets. 22 isn’t so rough and it’s held on.

Be very careful when swapping the uppers with the detents. The little missle can get lost. I got a few spares just in case I have to deal with it again.

I hope to find a Hk style retainer pin to simply pull it all the way out for quick swaps/easier cleaning.

Nice- I have been waiting for a threaded one. Didn't get an email for some reason. One in route!

Got my threaded version in. Seems my older non-threaded has access to the bolt hold open button. Sadly they made around 10 or so like that and removed the feature due to difficulty of finding the sweet spot between bolt cut and the position of the upper on the lower.

New one got preeeety dirty. Also looks like my sealed can is about to die inside. Maybe an excuse to get a .22 erector by Q

Where I can find information if 22lr upper will fit 9mak version of vz61 ( I heard that magwell is different on 9mak vz61s)
Thanks

According to their website "The .22 LR Universal Conversion Kit is manufactured by Czech Small Arms and will fit and function with all three caliber vz. 61 pistols (.380 Auto, 9 mm Makarov, and 7.65 mm Browning)."

Really  enjoy  my  threaded upper- runs like a top. Accuracy  is there too. If you  can  find some. 22 you will have a ball!
