1911 .22?



Log in to see fewer ads
I have an itch for a GOOD 1911 .22 that will be about the same weight as a .45. I notice Bud's has the National Match Walther for a price that won't hurt too bad, wonder if anyone has had experience with this model, or has thoughts about some other make ? Thanks.

No, I didn't Google it and am not about to.

I have the plain-Jane GI Colt-Walther. Good plinking pistol. It's not gonna take any awards for accuracy. Minute of soup can.

A gunsmith friend has one and is pleased with it, Ive shot it and it did what it was supposed to.
I have the GSG 1911-22 and it has been 'good enough for me' and responded to my tweaks. It isnt the quality of the Walther/Colt's version nor the price. Fits my 1911 leather and G-10 grip panels, a fair amount of aftermarket but dont fall for the line about a lot of real 1911 parts fit. I think the weight is pretty close.
Imo, dont include the Chiappa in your considerations.

Hey! Did ya Google this? (Sorry, couldn't resist) Anyway I have the Walther/Colt 1911 and for what it is, I really like it. Magazines are reasonable price-wise and work well. (12 rounds too!) I'm happy with mine.

Well , I have two of the Walther Colt 1911-22’s .
If I find something I like , I buy in pairs .
Anyways , both of them will shoot anything I feed it . From Standard Velocity to Stingers and Velocitors, with some bulk 36g. Federals thrown in .
The triggers are ok , accuracy is as good as I can shoot with a handgun .
Most 1911 grips fit them , so you can pretty them up anyway you desire.
One of mine when I had wood grips on it .

48 shots at 7 yards

I decided to build instead of buy...S&W 1911 lower off of Gunbroker and Nelson Conversion upper. It is a fantastic gun! Gives me a very similar feel as my regular Colt 1911.

The Kimber I had years ago was extremely accurate. One time I bought a Stainless II Kimber in 9mm, then bought the 22.r kit for it. Either set up was awesome. Another mistake I made when i sold it.

I bought a colt/walter/umarex gold cup a few years ago. Fun plinker, doesn't like automatch, loves CCI Blazer and RGB's. After 200 rounds cleaning the chamber is a necessity.

Made out of zamak so it has some heft. I don't shoot it much now as I bought a 22/45 MKIV which has the right grip angle.

Doing it over, I'd look into a conversion unit for a 1911 centerfire pistol.

"I have an itch for a GOOD 1911 .22 that will be about the same weight as a .45"

Define "GOOD"

Do you mean "good" looking, "good" shooting, "good pricing"...........

I went with the GSG 11911 22. It's a pleasure to shoot and off hand at 15 yards I'm getting 3 inch groups. For me that's pretty good.

I've had to send it back to ATI once for repair but they only had it three days and sent it back completed. Their customer service department is wonderful. I had some aftermarket parts that I forgot I put on and they sent back my new parts as well as bringing the gun back to original condition with no cost to me.

I'm glad I bought it and will be buying another at Christmas for my son.

Cannot give any advice on which one is best. But do stay away from the browning made ones because they made them 85% models so not full size.
