    Bought mine about a month ago have over 1500 rounds through it. Eats every kind of ammo. I have also seen them with a lot of extras. I really don't have any negative to give to you. Hope this helps.

    Yeah, ditto....
    Have had mine almost a year now. Love it.
    It is picky with some ammo though. It does not like hp ammo as good as round nose (fmj) ammo.

    I've had mine for 2 1/2 yrs. Changed a bunch of stuff. Love it and it eats anything I put in it so far.

    I've had mine since they came out. No issues and it eats everything I've fed it.

    I am looking to get another 1911-22 but this time I'm going with the Colt/Umarex/Walther version. It breaks down like a real 1911.

    When you get the Colt give us a comparison of the two.

    Now that is a beautiful gun. Simple roll marks, great sights, and it's a Colt. Not a fan of FCS but the tight lines are nice, The ones on STI are horrid (for example) but they make a good gun. The DE is a great 1911 for the money but the roll mark is a BILLBOARD. Anyway congrats on a new Colt.
    PS love that hammer on that one.

    I've had mine for a while. I have had a few issues but nothing big. I shoot steel challenge with it and love it. This guy has a bunch of cool parts for the GSG.

    I got my GSG 1911-22 a few months back. I think it's good for the price (don't like the plastic guide rod). I've had a few ammo issues, but not enough to make the think less of it. I needed a .22 with a threaded barrel and chose it - no complaints thus far.

    You can get replacement guide rod here. http://www.cwaccessories.com/index.html

    The one you have now should be aluminum. Mine has not broke yet, but the consensus is that it will, so i ordered a new longer one.

    Well picked up a gsg tactical yesterday. So far so good. Few hundred rounds through it with no problems. Thanks for the feed and back. Now I've gotta get some parts to make it mine. Trigger work first!!!

    I paid $349 plus tax. I've almost shot that much in 45 ammo last month

    I've got the Sig version.
    I added a stainless steel full guide rod and some custom grips that reminded me of the "Desert Warrior".

    It's very reliable and very accurate. :)

    The GSG 1911 is nice gun. Don't like the plastic guide rod. Bought a Colt Umerx 1911. It is Damn sure not a Colt. I will keep it but?:rolleyes:
