Default 1911 .22lr

I decided to get out and do some. 22lr shooting with my girlfriend, which rarely happens these days, with my Colt/Umarex 1911. It had been quite a while since I had shot it and I had forgotten what a sweet shooter it is. It was almost as accurate as my Woodsman.
Any other proud owners of this gun?

I have one that I really enjoy shooting. My only complaint is that I can't find extra magazines.

That's really the only problem I have with it too. I've never been able to locate any.

I bought one almost a year ago and am a happy buyer. Mostly I've only shot CCI's out of it, but also Winchesters, and 40grn Colt lead noses (Aguila); never a hiccup.

Have a new Colt 1911A1 .22lr on its way and an extra magazine. Use it for plinking and closeup armadillos so that I don't have tolug around my 10/22 stainless.

Extra mags for the Phony Ponies are available from Cheaper Than Dirt at the least cost I know of. I bought three this month.

They are great guns by the way, mine is the Gold Cup version.

I've got the Gold cup version of it.

I'm not too enthused about the trigger, but the fix is in the works.

Accuracy is great..

So, even after this thread, I am confused on what 1911 style .22lr is well made.

I am used to average to above average 1911 quality as relates to .45acp and would like something similar.

Although I realize that parts may not need to be as strong, I want to avoid the typical flimsy knock-offs.

If the Colt 1911 Gold Cup in .22lr has a poor trigger, but the rest is well made, I'm with DanF_Fl, that it can be fixed.

I'm wondering if a real 1911 with a .22lr conversion might be better.

I also have a phony pony, the Colt Rail Gun 1911-22. Love it! One of the reasons I chose it over the other brands is the "Colt" M4 Tactical .22 I bought a few years ago has been so good. These Walther/Umarex .22 LRs are very well made. The price is quite good considering the quality you get. Like Gator, bought magazines from CTD as they were the best price I could find. Watch out though, they try to stick you with the default shipping and $3 handling fee. Choose the $7 USPS shipping to hold down the cost.

I labored over the decision of going dedicated 1911-22/dedicated AR15-22 vs. .22lr uppers on real 1911 and AR15 lowers and both times went the dedicated route. Glad I did. For about the same cost you get another firearm instead of just an upper, and from my experience the reliability and accuracy are very good.

Now my 1911 45 ACP is a real Colt!
