Hi guys, i'am from Germany, and looking for a nice full size 1911 pistol for the range and for occasional carry in the woods. (its legal if ur in a hunting area an if u obtain a valid hunting licence which i do) The german 1911 market(used guns) is very limited, so its extremely hard for me to find anything else than colt (s.70 an s.80 both geovernement and gold cup models), and springfield. In Germany the gun laws are pretty weird. I will try to sum it up, so u guys can understand my situation a little bit better. Basically, i am only allowed to own two handguns with my hunting license. To get the permission to own more than two is very hard, so its not an option for me really. (However i can own as many rifles, shotguns etc. as will fit my gunsafe) But, there is a small "gap" in the law: If you own a handgun lets say a Pistol in .45 cal, you can legally own as many uppers/ barrels for it is as you want, as long as they are the same caliber or a smaller caliber ( what matters is the actual bullet diameter, not the length of the cartridge or the muzzle energy...). Thats also one reason why i choose the 1911 style pistol, because you can convert it to so many calibers. My question is now, which uppers will fit which brand and which pistol model. Will the GSG 1911 .22 lr Conversion kit fit any full size 1911 or just some models? Will it fit the gold cup versions ( series 70 and 80), and the springfield trophy match series? thanks for ur replies and greetings from Munich. This is a great forum btw. I wish we would have something like that in germany. It seems like people are much mor open minded here than in our hunting forums, so thumps up!!!!
