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.
