I have a MK II, a couple of MK IIIs and now a 22/45 (10140). I waited for factory made/removable grips. I also have a S&W Model 41 and a Marvel No. 1 .22 conversion for a 1911. All are good, but I find I prefer the 22/45 (after suitable mods to improve the trigger and eliminate the mag safety).

I don't own a Browning 1911 .22. I have looked them over. Comparing these little mid sized holster guns to tuned heavy barreled target pistols is ridiculous.
This is a compact .22 on a proven platform and is made for the trapper and the "Woods Runner". It is a Saturday afternoon can shooter with the wife and kids.

I presume it's a price thing. Both are similarly priced and fire the same cartridge. So I think that is the basis for the comparison. I agree with night stalker they are not similar pistols other than their cartridge but I do see reasons to compare them.

I had a volquartsen trigger assembly put in my 10/22 by a gunsmith with the proper tools to stone everything perfectly. It feels better but I didn't notice a night to day difference in accuracy. With the stock trigger I was hitting 1" rabbit silhouettes in the head most of the time at 35 yards. Since I upgraded the trigger I hit the rabbits in the head...

The volquartsen trigger upgrade is worth it if you are a competitive shooter. There is a .25" difference between first and fifteenth. Naturally any advantage is necessary. If bagging bunnies & squirrels is the purpose of the rifle the volquartsen recoil buffer is a great improvement.

Thanks I have so many pistols but this is the first 22 figured it was about time
Plus my daughter wants to start shooting a pistol and everything I have i think its too big for her to start with. I can slowly introduce bigger calibers as we go. At least that's my story and I'm sticking to it lol

Yea I have completely ruled out the Browning at this point. Now I'm stuck btw the Ruger Mkiii or the Ruger 22/45. I like the grip angle of the 22/45
