Let me rephrase, why the hell is it in Germany?
i live in Ireland. Our gun laws are a little more stringent than those of the US.they make it quite difficult to get a licence over here,especially for pistols.more through ignorance than anything else. so i was quite surprised to get approval. My firearms dealer Is importing it from Germany.lookin forward to gettin my mitts on it

Another vote for the GSG .22 1911....
I have one of these too and have put hundreds of rounds through it. Every now and then will have a ftf but it looks to me like these are caused by the ammo.
It does not like the .22lr hollow points. I always buy fmj .22lr rounds.

Once the gun got really broken in good (like over 500 rounds) and I made sure to only get fmj rounds it has run almost flawlesly.
The sig 1911 .22lr is the same exact gun but just with sig markings. It probably does have better warranty but this has not been an issue as I have never had to use GSG warranty service.

anyone know where i could order a good holster for a Colt 1911 A1?
I don't need to conceal it, as i will only be using it for range shooting and competitions.

My favorite holster is the Cuda which is made by Simply Rugged Holsters.
It is a pancake OWB holster but is also convertable to IWB (if you get their Inside/out straps) and also a shoulder hoster too (if you get their Chesty Puller shoulder rig).

The basic holster itself is like $65 bucks, but I promise you it is very quality made. I have two higher priced Galcos but I now use this for all of my 1911's (even my Ed Brown).


Here is a link to their website:
