Saw a friend that just bought one of these. I've never heard of them before. I'll tell him to watch out.
My uncle just Got a sig sauer 1911-22 and it has about 150 rounds through it and that thing is really an awesome gun. It's a great target shooter

I believe the Sig version is in fact made by GSG.

I think your right I heard that before. But having held and shot both and hearing what others have said, I prefer the sig.

How does the Sig differ from the GSG? They look like the same guns. I bought an extra clip for my GSG and it is marked Sig.? Sig needs a good .22 Auto. The Musquito is a real failure in the gun world.

The SIG 1911/22 is a re-branded GSG 1911/22 in better cosmetics. The Umarex "Colt" 1911/22 is by Walther. The Umarex "Colt" has sweeter cosmetics than the GSG and has a 12rd mag.

From everything I've read all over the boards - its a coin toss between these 2 1911/22s.

The Chiappa 1911/22s don't even come close to the above guns.

And the new Browning 1911/22 is a smaller-scale example at almost twice the price of a GSG or Umarex "Colt", so standard aftermarket 1911 cosmetics won't fit.

I'm not sure what you mean by "feels cheap".
I own several 1911's (Springfield, Kimber, Colt) and this one feels no different.

As for "poor grouping"
