Anyone own the sig/gsg 1911 or a mark 3 please let me know what your experience is like with it.
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.
That is what I was gonna say. Beat me to it.
Great minds think alike LK!
Both are good guns
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.
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. Ruger duplicated two Nambus in his garage, 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.
Dang! you just learned us! thanks for the good info Gator!
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.
I prefer an all steel gun to an all zinc alloy one any day. Get the Ruger.
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.
You are correct sir!
Glad I got something right edited my post to correct Walther, not Walter
I got a Ruger Mark 3 Hunter that really pisses me off,one nice hole,10 rounds,25ft.I don't think I could do that even with a Sig!
