Default New 1911 for me

After much research on line and found positive answers, I purchased a
GSG .22 on a 1911 frame. The weight is close to a reg. 1911

First thing was to break it down and clean it. Just like any other 1911 except it has a screw in pin and a extra push through pin center frame. The overall quality is good. I read that once you remove the slide, the main frame will interact with any other 1911. Have not tried it yet, will look into that.

It is a great shooting gun!! after two boxes of ammo with no jams or misfires, I was very pleased. Shoots tight groups. With my point of aim, it is shooting a little high. The gun comes with three front sights. One on the gun and two others to adjust up or down sighting. All I did at the range was change my point of aim and I nailed the X in the middle of the target at thirty feet.
It is a fun gun to shoot. At 320.00 at Buds, I think it is a good deal. See photos below.

I have the same gun and made some changes you may want to consider. I removed the magazine safety which brings the gun closer the the 1911 pattern. The one weak spot of the GSG is its cast guide rod. I replaced it with a machined steel rod from CWA and can say it's worth every penny of the $22 price tag. Price includes GR and spring.

Chet is a GSG shooter and makes great upgrades for the pistol. Fast shipping too!

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

My sister just picked up a Sig 1911-22. I believe its made by GSG for Sig (any truth to that?). Seems well made and faithful to the 1911 moniker.

It looks like a pretty good shooter. We're looking forward to trying it out.

Any recommendations for a set of thinner grips for the Sig/GSG? Also can you replace the mainspring housing for a flat one?

Yes, MSH will swap out with standard 1911 parts. When you remove the GSG MSH you also will be removing the mag-safety.

The MSH on my Colt above is a Smith & Alexander with mag-guide.

If you get a chance, call Alan Smith. He's a hoot! He and Barb are two of the friendliest, knowledgeable and customer focused business people I have ever run into!

1-888-722-1911

Tell him what gun you have and he or Barb will fix you up.

Smith & Alexander - "The Mag-Guide People"

And be sure you tell them you heard about them on the FirearmsTalk.com forum!
