    I have an Armscor made Taylor's 1911style .45 and I was wanting to trade for a .22 cal 1911 style pistol. How are the Sig, GSG or whatever other brands? Which should be a good shooter?

    Somehow, I can't help but think that you are coming out on the short end of the deal.

    I agree with that you might be coming out on the short end depending on the deal you strike. I will tell you I love my GSG and my friend loves her SIG. I had some work done from cwaccessories.com with mine it shoots very very well.

    I just want something that's a little cheaper to shoot...I was looking at the sig honestly. What is this Umarex company that's selling Colts? Or am I confused?

    I have no idea what you .45 is worth, But you should easily be able to pick up a .22lr for around $200 and keep your .45
    Best of luck

    This is what I would prefer, but I don't have an extra $200 atm. I just started looking so I'll see what I can find.

    IMO, it would be a poor trade unless there was some sizeable money to boot on it the offer. there is no way i would trade one of my 45's for a 22.

    I honestly really love shooting the .45, I really don't want the .22 but I can't afford to practice with the .45. Maybe I should just save the money I would've spent on ammo and buy another gun...

    Ruger recently came out with the 22/45. It's a "mark" style action with the receiver of a full sized 1911

    A gun thats "kinda" like a 1911 is not a 1911--

    Let me see...
    I've got two hands, two feet, two ears....

    Then I should have at least two 1911's

    i would strongly recomend a reloading press manual and the accessories to roll your own ammo. the initial costs is in the 200-250$ range. you can use lead bullets which really cut costs a LOT cases for a 45acp seem to last nearly forever. it opens a whole new vista of the gun world and lets you short far more ammo for your favorite gun for the same cost.

    it's a Armscor made Taylor's 1911style .45 for the crying out loud. Ditch that thing. Where's it made? China, Russia? I never even heard of it before.

    I say do it. Don't let things you own, own you.

    If that whatever you call it .45 is just collecting dust it's gottta go! If you like the trade do it. But you did ask and the people are speaking.

    Me? Get the SIG .22 and enjoy life.

    the Taylor's I've seen are priced around $450-500 (california) bought my GSG for $370 (California) so stick with your .45 save for the .22 in the meantime make friends with someone with a .22 so you don't become impatient if not let me know I'll trade you. can just about bet you don't have as many rounds through your Taylor as anybody has through their .22

    I have been wanting to start reloading since I purchased my gun. I've saved much of my brass that I've shot. I've heard RCBS is a good press to start with.

    That Armscor shoots like a champ. Goes bang every time I pull the trigger. Great .45 with very manageable recoil. I have almost 600 rounds through it and I would trust it for everyday carry.
