The Colt/Walther nor the GSG/Sig 1911 22’s were not on the market when I assembled a RIA frame for my Advantage Arms Standard kit. I’ve shot the Colt/Walther and liked it better than the GSG/Sig but I think there is more aftermarket support for the GSG/Sig.

I know it is more money but I think a Marvel Precision Unit 1 Target style conversion on a dedicated 1911 frame are hard to beat. Advantage Arms and Nelson sell a conversion with the same design as Marvel. My AA kit is probably is not as accurate as a Target kit but I can’t shoot good enough to see the benefit of the Target model.

If you ever want an optic on a 1911 in 22 LR you’ll need a design similar to the Marvel Unit 1 Target to function reliably. The Marvel unit 1 has a fixed barrel and only a small portion of the slide moves on recoil. The extra weight of an optic does not add weight to the moving part of the Target slide.

my sig 1911-22 is roughly the same weight and size as my full sized , but the kimber conversion on the dedicated lower is a very good match , just food for thought ,

I chose a .22LR conversion kit that fits either of my 1911s. It might be tiny bit more "fidgety" than a dedicated .22LR 1911 (I don't know for sure), but it's plenty of fun.

I have 2, Marvel 1 conversions, and both are very accurate. They both will shoot groups under an inch at 75 yards, but they are a lot lighter than a 1911, and won't fit in a 1911 holster, so, if you are looking for a gun, for training/practice, a conversion won't do it.
A couple of friends of mine picked up Sig 1911-22, which I believe is just a re-branded GSG. The only difference I could see is the Sigs have yellow dots, in their sights. Well, I ended up buying one, with intentions of actually practicing. It feels exactly like my centerfire, 1911s. I think I've had it for about a year now, but, I've only took it to the range once, to test it for accuracy and reliability. Everything I put through it ran 100%. CCI Mini-Mags were the most accurate. Nothing like a Marvel conversion, but, under 2" at 25 yards. I've been debating whether to spend the $ to get it to shoot more accurately.
There's a lot of good information, here, on the 1911-22 sub-forums.

No, I didn't Google it and am not about to.
I have the Sig-Sauer 1911-22 made by GSG. It is the same size and close to the weight of a .45.
The main difference from the .45 is the barrel is fixed so it doesn't have the link. It is cool and fun to shoot! GSG (German Sport Guns) has a good reputation and made 1911's for Sig for a while. Mine came with 2 10-shot mags and extras are available. The manual says it works best with high velocity ammo and should be cleaned after every 300 rounds. GSG also makes compact size 1911s.

GSG 1911 it eats anything I have owned it for 4 years never a FTF or FTL magazine are made of metal and feel like a 45 ACP 80% of the parts are are interchangeable with a 1911. The only problem I have had is wit the front sight it’s plastic and the set screw strips in the sight. But it’s an easy tap out. Lots of upgrades it’s a good shooter and upgrades make it better.

I picked up a US Palm Tactical 1911/.22. It is a Caspian lower with a “Marvel” upper. Research led me to the upper being an Advantage Arms Target conversion unit upper which is the Marvel design. I thought it might offer some advantage to youngsters I have shooting precision pistol. It is certainly accurate enough with the right ammo. It will shoot inside a dime .36” at 25 yards with Lapua OSP. The trigger is great, and I have a nice MRDS optic on it. It’s a little to light tho and they shoot the dedicated target pistols better on timed and rapid fire courses. I keep a stream light pistol light on it for the weight. It will fit in some of my standard 1911 holsters, so it may end up being a steel gun, or other tactical match gun.

1911 .22?

I have 2 GSG 1911s, two GSG conversion kits (they sold the GSG top end separately as a conversion for awhile), and I have a custom built Marvel conversion I use in competition. Out of the box the GSGs were fun but. It accurate. I ended up putting Dawson sights on them and then upgrading them with parts from EGW and CWA. They are pretty accurate now, but still not as accurate as the custom built Marvel. CWA now makes upgrade barrels and slides for the GSG pistols to make them race-ready like my Marvel.

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.

I agree , love mine .

The GSG 1911-22's are made by SIG. Excellent value for money. Threaded barrel to boot!
