I think it comes down to what your centerfire preferences are.

My likes tend to lean towards the 1911 pattern pistol sooooooo I went with the GSG. I'm now looking at the Colt UMAREX Model 2245708 because it was not available two years ago.





Don't get me wrong, the Ruger Mark pistols are great guns, more than likely better in the accuracy department than any 1911-22. BUT.....I don't regularly shoot a German Luger P08. I shoot a myriad of 1911s. Ergo; I prefer to shoot a 1911-22lr.

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!

SIG GSG 1911 though that new Ruger 22/45 is cool looking I guess.

The Ruger .22 is not a P08 clone. Ruger designed the .22 from the Jap Nambu Pistol.

I think we're mixing Axis powers.

You say Jap, I say Kraut.

You can call it what ever you like. If you read the History Rugers handguns he states that he and Sturm used the Nambu as their pattern.

Default According to Wikipedia

One quality of the Type 14 caught the eye of William B. Ruger who had acquired a captured Nambu from a returning US Marine, shortly after World War II ended in 1945.[1] Ruger duplicated two Nambus in his garage,[2] and although he decided against marketing them, the handgun's rear cocking device and the Nambu's silhouette was incorporated into one of the most popular .22 semi-automatic pistols to ever enter the US firearms market, when in 1949 the Ruger Standard (and later Mark I, II, and III) pistols were sold to the US public.[1]
