ATI/GSG question



Log in to see fewer ads
Hello everyone. I have recently been reading about the 1911 22lr handguns and have a couple questions.

I understand the GSG is imported by ATI. Is there one branded ATI rather than GSG, and if so, what is the difference?

My second question is concerning the slide material. If the slide has the steel pin at the rear of the slide lock notch, does that indicate it is the aluminum slide as opposed to the Zamak slide of earlier pistols?

Thanks in advance for your help.

I found info online in the past that gave a good run-down on the updates made; havent been there in a good while and sure dont remember much (oldtimers...).
What sticks in my mind is that if it has the pin it has most/all the good upgrades. Mine does so I stopped worrying, but, that pin wont stop all the peening over time. I go easy on it for the lock in ‘just because’. It isnt much of a big deal for general funnin around.
The GSI is the Sig, dont know if there is an ATI specific.
I like mine, an affordable, reliable, fun 1911 22lr for my fixed income.

ATI

is the importer, the GSG pistols are only sold under the GSG name. of course, the SIG is just a rebranded GSG with a different finish and grips, and HIGHER PRICE ! I believe all the pistols have an aluminum slide, and alloy frame. my early GSG didnt have the reinforcement pin in the slide stop notch and it was starting to peen after about 250 shots. I traded it off and got the colt/walther gold cup, with slide notch reinforcement . the colt is a better 1911 style .22 pistol, better finish, ETC, but this is MY OPINION. GSG is decent ,mine shot well after a good break in.

Thank you for the reply. My friend has the Sig version, but I have not seen it for quite some time. I plan to get with him soon and shoot it. We live several miles apart, so have to make some arrangements for a get together. I will probably hold off until then.

I will probably stay with the GSG due to the price difference. I am still thinking on it for now. I always tend to over analyze things.

Btw, my GSG is a ‘deluxe’ dual-tone version, more like a Gold Cup with some nice bells and whistles and specifically an ambi safety. I was able to quickly fit some aftermarket 1911 grip panels (already precut for the ambi) by enlarging part of the ambi cutout with a small chisel.
And my package came with 2 magazines.
It has been quite reliable with copper plated bullet HV ammo. Typically I shoot until the last cartridge of the mag is chambered, drop the mag, insert the new and keep rockin’. This avoids one slide lock-back on that pin.
Havent done anything to it but tear down to inspect/clean/lube, reassemble and shoot. Once dirty it bobbles (duh), keep it reasonably clean and half wet and it runs.

As far as I can tell, Sig Sauer no longer offers a 1911-22. They do sell a .22 version of their P938 but for a substantially higher MSRP.

As for peening the slide, I think that it is the reason that the GSG manual says that the one should slingshot the slide.

Manual ? No one needs no stinkin manual. Reading only takes time away from shootin. I read mine and have only sling back the slide to release. No wear on the notch after five years of it usually with me on gun club trips. Have yet to strip it down to sand the nasty black off the trigger. The nose cone is for a real 45.

Can't directly answer your question.
I'll just say this. I've had my GSG about 7 years (so doesn't have the steel pin) and conservatively 10000 rounds. Put in an aftermarked guide rod, spring and barrel bushing about three years ago which halved my group sizes.
Had it out this past weekend. Shows some wear (which gives it character) but it runs like the day I brought it home.

Pulled the trigger!

No pun intended.................well maybe. Had my LGS order the ATI/GSG for me yesterday. Should be here next week. I chose the black finish with wood grips. I think that combo looks pretty cool. Can't wait to get my mitts on it.

Thanks to everyone for their comments and information. It is greatly appreciated.

Sweet!!!! I love the look. Did it come with the silver slide or did you polish it yourself?

That is close to the price I am getting due to some wholesaler having a special according to my LGS. I have no idea where they found it.
