    Does anyone own a .22 1911? I've been looking around and it seems they just don't work all that good. I know its a dirty caliber but has anyone had good luck w theirs? I'm new to the 1911 world...just purchased a Sig P238 and absolutely love this little thing. I want a full size. 45 but the funds just aren't there yet for the one I want. I have multiple .22s due to increase of bullet cost. I'm still looking around...I will take any comments towards the right direction...thanks!

    +1 for the GSG/Sig.
    Best 1911-22 on the market, IMO.

    Here's mine. :)

    Colt/Walther/Umarex here. Well over 1000 rounds of CCI Mini-Mags and Blazer without a single malfunction.

    Just a hair under $400 OTD.

    I can attest that the Umarex/Walther/Colt shoots wonderfully. Shot a hundred rounds through a new one last weekend with a bunch of cheap ammo without a single issue. The feel was spot on with a Springfield Armory 1911 in .45 and was why my friend had purchased it in the first place. It seems the only one really available currently is the rail version, as I was/am looking for one myself. I know another guy who had the new Browning on order but after shooting Umarex he canceled his order (it is a slightly scaled down size). I have seen them locally for 375ish.

    I replaced the front sight with the #2 that came with the pistol but that's it.
    I'm happy with the accuracy as it is.

    Others have added adjustable sights ...
    GSG 1911 report and looking for suggestion - 1911Forum

    And I believe ATI or GSG-Pro is now making an adjustable rear sight for the GSG 1911, but i can't find the link.

    *edit*
    Found the sight I was thinking of.
    It's not ATI or GSG-Pro. :eek:

    Did you get it from an online dealer that has a storefront in Germany or something?

    Let me rephrase, why the hell is it in Germany?

    My sig 1911 .22lr still made by gsg. I really like this gun but tends to ftf on the second round. I only have one mag right now with 1000 or so rounds. I cant seem to find more mags for under $50.

    I have a GSG also. Have the FTF on second round only if it's cheap ammo. Joe Bob's outfitters has mags for around $30. I got my extras there.

    I had a couple FTF's when I first got it.
    When I took a closer look, I noticed a little bit of drag when the slide returned to battery.
    Because there is so little spring tension from the recoil spring, my thinking is that any little bit of drag has the potential for FTF's.
    So I polished the face of the hammer and where it makes contact when returning to battery, underneath the slide.
    I'm guessing what manufactures refer to as a "break-in period" would help to smooth out these contact areas as well.

    The slide now returns to battery as smooth as glass and I haven't had a single FTF since. :)

    What kind of ammo should I use in my sig 1911 .22lr? After 3 trips to the range I went through 700 winchester 36 grain and 300 fedral 40 grain. Both kinds were resulting in ftf on 2nd round too often.

    I've always found CCI MiniMags to be very reliable.

    I put 250+ rounds through mine on Sat. at a steel challenge. Bulk Federal HV with not 1 problem. 100+ rounds of Winchester bulk, same as you shot, and had several FTF today. Just FYI.
