Time for some comic relief. You guys put me to shame, but I can't help it. I'm an inveterate and unrepentant tinkerer.



The upper is a Ciener base model. The pistol is a real mongrel. Several years ago, Sarco (back when they were still in New Jersey) was selling some surplus 1911 receivers they had picked up when Brolin Arms went out of business. They were advertised as being Officers receivers, which is why I bought it. I paid a whopping $25 for it.

The problem was -- when I got it, it wasn't an Officers size. It also wasn't a government size. Turns out Brolin at one time sold a "Compact" model that had a grip frame midway between a Government Model and an Officers ACP in length, and that's what these were. At the time, Sarco didn't have magazines or mainspring housings to fit it. (Years later they came up with both.) To make it work, I had to create my own mainspring housing by taking a polymer MSH for a Government Model and cutting it down to the correct length, then reshaping the upper end with a file. Then I had to shorten a mainspring and the two pins. Everything else is basically standard 1911, so I threw a bunch of parts at it and made a gun.

Initially it was a .45, but I didn't like it, and it looked stupid with a magazine sticking out a quarter of an inch. So I put the Ciener conversion on it, and I installed a pair of Pachmayr grips. I don't like them, but with the steel liner they're rigid enough that they can overhang the bottom of the grip frame without flexing, and they hide the magazine protrusion.

So it's a true mongrel ... but it shoots!

Colt 1911 22 Rail Gun

My new Colt 1911 22 Rail Gun with some after market goodies. The pistol is a lot of fun to shoot.







Looks like a steel pin has been installed to keep the slide from degrading at the slide lock location....clever!!

The GSG 1911-22s are good little guns with the exception of the guide rod. It is poorly made and will break some time in the first 1000 rounds. Usually sooner than later. As long as you replaced that in that kit, should be good to go. I have one of those, two of their uppers, 2 Tacsol 22 uppers and a Marvel 22 upper and they all run great. I shot 2 gun rimfire with both the GSG pistol and one of the GSG uppers for a couple of years and they ran. Accurate enough but they arenít Marvels. CWA makes good GSG parts too.
