No, not as long as they are made true to original basic design. GSG/Walther type use a frame mounted barrel, FC systen is not same, no sear check as in orignal design. I can teach my 6 & 9 yr old grandsons how to shoot and field strip for cleaning a 1911, which they could not do till these Browning's came along.

This weekend a local gun store clerk and retired state trooper tried to tell me that the Sig 1911-22 came apart like a true 1911 and when I asked him to show me, he was stumped as how to get barrel off gun. I asked him how it was like a actual 1911 and only correct answer was it wasn't unless you want to count slide stop and barrel bushing. He was embarresed and kept saying his at home does because he's had it all apart like his 45ACP 1911's. It was my entertainment for the day.

As far as I know the only way in past to have a true 1911 22lr was a conversion kit, but I never had one in hand to look at to be 100% sure of that statement.

Since we're bragging here are a few of my favorites three in .45, two in 9mm and one 22.lr. You can guess which ones are which.

And the last two of the nickel plated Colt was a present to my son when he graduated from Parris Island. He's one of the Proud, The Few, and came back to us from Afghanistan as an 0311.

OK I get what you're saying. I do love my Browning 1911-22. Awesome story about the state trooper. Classic.

First, thank you to you and your son for your service.

Second, I'm gonna guess the middle bottom is the 22, the upper left and the upper right are 9mm, and the top, middle right, and middle left are the .45s.

I'm probably very wrong.

I think that looks pretty sweet! What is that? Paint, Duracoat, Cerakote, Hydro-Dip?

Nice guess

Top is .45 and two on left. Two on right are 9mm and the bottom is the .22lr.

Yes, I'm really proud of the boy. I have three boys and they are my pride.

Thanks. I wasn't aware the S&W 1911 came in 9mm, so that's why I thought it was .45. I learn something new every time I get on RFC.

Smith made them for awhile in 9mm under thier Pro-Series. I'm no pro, but I like 9mm.

S&W Blues

Well, the folks at Smith & Wesson had me feeling pretty low. Their newest 1911's with those 3 angled lightening cuts behind the front sight are some of the finest looking pistols I've seen in quite some time. And yet... I just can't, in any degree of responsibility, afford one (sigh).
But then, I realized; Hey! I'm a machinist!

Look's great.

That's using your head for something besides a hat rack.
