Kind of takes out that whole inexpensive part of a .22 doesn't it

Is that the same Kimber Company that has a 42% failure rate on their handguns? They are shop worn from the shipping boxes back to Kimber that one? $850 for a .22 plinker

Yeah, I don't have anything against Kimber (I've never handled one), but I am STERNLY against paying $850 for a .22.. .22's are cheap, that's the idea behind them. If I wanna spend $850, I'll go buy a bushmaster or just do an ar build.

That is why I bought the Browning 1911 .22 A1. I don't know why people are so insistent on the gun being full size. The little Browning is a really nice gun and a lot of fun to shoot. Personally I can't get past those other 1911 .22s beng made of zinc alloy.

Range report has been posted! I'm very impressed with this gun. zinc alloy or not, it performs phenomenally and is a BLAST to shoot.

Krisko9 They are a great .22 pistol. I read some where that Zink alloy was really Criptonite.
