Here's my GSG 1911-22:

Funny..... Buds Guns has the Sig Model for $368 Cash Price, and Gander Mountain has it for $399. I bought my GSG from Davidson's for $348 Out-The-Door, including Tax and Fees...... and the Sig is the SAME GUN, as the GSG 1911-22 sold by American Tactical Imports (ATI).

So, for an extra $20 & $51, you're paying for the Sig Sauer Brand Name. Hmmmm!

Cheers!

If I was looking for an inexpensive 22, I'd probably be gravitating toward the Ruger SR22 or the S&W M&P.

I agree. I've shot both and came away extremely impressed. I just helped my mother with her 1st handgun purchase...an SR22. The Ruger is pretty tiny (about the size of a PPK, maybe even smaller), while the M&P is closer to a service size pistol. So size probably dictates which is the better fit for any given shooter.

I have the GSG 1911, and generally wouldn't recommend it.

The Ruger and Browning target pistols are another viable option.
