Many folks new to gun collecting confuse the Ruger .22 pistol with a P08. The Nambu was a Japan copy of the Lahati Pistol. These two pistols had straight bolts not machine gun toggles as were used in the Luger.

i have the Ruger Mark III 22/45 and have been very pleased with it so far. fun to shoot, accurate and so far works with any ammo i have tried in it.

i wouldn't mind having a 1911 dedicated 22 pistol, but for now just haven't found one that suits me yet. had given some thought to buying a 22 conversion kit, but at the cost of the quality ones, i decided i would rather have a dedicated 22 caliber 1911 vs. the kit.

OK, we got the correction memo.

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!

I prefer an all steel gun to an all zinc alloy one any day. Get the Ruger.

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.


Have you or anyone else had a chance to try out the Umarex? It is very intriguing but I am unsure how I feel about buying a gun from an air soft company.

I believe umarex is licensed by colt to make them and I think Walther in Germany is the actual company that is manufacturing them.
