A lot of people would disagree with this as Colt has licensed their name to Umarex/Walther .22LR knockoffs of their M16/M4 and 1911. But I have a phony pony M4 .22 and a 1911-22 and find them to be reliable and certainly good enough for the job, trainer/plinker.
I would hope the model the OP is considering is also good but have no experience with that one. It would be wise to look at competing brands, more selection tends to be good - you never know what might turn up!
