I want a semi auto 1911 22lr for a couple of reasons...size,style,planking and the fact I would like to eventually purchase a 1911 in .45.
If anyone can please find a semi auto 1911 and post the link I would appreciate it. And if one 1911 22lr beats another in your mind please speak up!
I do have other prospects tho, compare and contrast if you all could and what specific model would be best. Also I want to shy away from those with major FTF's and FTE's problems.
some type of 1911
All other suggestions are welcome!!!
And if ONE person can CLEARLY break down the differences between DA, semi auto, and SA/DA I would appreciate it.

You will have plenty of ideas after doing so.

example of plinking
^^^^^^thats funny right there^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
hahaha nice one :)
So after doing research I have come to the conclusion it is nearly impossible for me to get a 1911 due to Illinois "melting point laws".
(720 ILCS 5/24‑3)
"(h) While holding any license as a dealer, importer,
manufacturer or pawnbroker under the federal Gun Control Act of 1968, manufactures, sells or delivers to any unlicensed person a handgun having a barrel, slide, frame or receiver which is a die casting of zinc alloy or any other nonhomogeneous metal which will melt or deform at a temperature of less than 800 degrees Fahrenheit. For purposes of this paragraph, (1) "firearm" is defined as in the Firearm Owners Identification Card Act; and (2) "handgun" is defined as a firearm designed to be held and fired by the use of a single hand, and includes a combination of parts from which such a firearm can be assembled. "

This is very disappointing as I was looking forward to my first handgun purchase....now I will have to keep looking.
? "it is nearly impossible for me to get a 1911" ?
I did 10 years time in IL and bought, sold, traded, shipped, ordered & received dozens and dozens of weapons during that time and have never heard of *melt laws* from anyone...ever.
A Colt Service Model ACE is not made of zinc, I can assure you.
The Colt or Marvel conversion units are not zinc either.
I don't know about the GSG/ATI as I've not owned one.
I wish that was to be true but all 1911's I have found say not available to IL residents. sometime I had to call and ask but it would end up being the same outcome.
PLEASE HELP and find me a 1911 22 that I can purchase!!
Look at the price on this one.
I paid $750 for one just like it 10 years ago.
Colt ACE, 22LR, service model, excellent condition : Semi-auto at GunBroker.com
Here is what I would get or build myself.
MARVEL UNIT 2 w/Custom RIA Lower 22LR - MINT : Semi-auto at GunBroker.com
Or buy a lower like this.
COLT SERIES '80 SS COMPLETE Lower - Near MINT : Semi-auto at GunBroker.com
...and add a conversion like this.
Marvel Precision Unit 2 Goverment Round Top Model : for 1911 at GunBroker.com
You get the idea.
FWIW: A couple of the GSG's at Bud's say *no sale to IL*, but a couple of other GSG's say no such thing. I still think you could order one and save some money. Have you specifically called Bud's Gunshop and asked?
