    New GSG 1911-22 and range report

    A couple weeks ago when I bought my Mosin Nagant 91/30 I saw the gun store also had the GSG 1911-22 available. I asked to see it and it felt like I was holding a 1911 .45 and not a .22 pistol. I was pretty impressed with the overall build quality and I was hoping it would still be there when I had the money to purchase it.

    A few days ago I went back to the same store and to my complete amazement they still had the same GSG 1911-22 that I fondled a couple weeks ago. I ended up following me home on 1/19/2011 at the cost of $355.00 and I took it to the range yesterday to test it out.

    I am overall pretty impressed with this particular .22 though I did experience a few stovepipes and failures to fire. Out of the 150 or so rounds I put through it I think it had maybe seven or eight malfunctions so I would give it a 8 out of 10 in reliability. Accuracy was alright at 20 yards but it shot high for me. I did notice the gun came with two additional front sights and they were of different sizes. I switched to the smallest one so hopefully next time I go to the range I'll get better groups.

    This .22 goes nicely with my M&P15-22. In summary I would recommend this dedicated .22LR 1911 style pistol to anyone looking for a training tool, especially if you carry a 1911 as your EDC gun. Another great thing is that it field strips almost like a regular 1911 but with two additional pins that have to be removed. Mine works well with Federal bulk and CCI Mini Mag ammo.

    USMC rule # 23 of gunfighting: Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everyone you meet.

    I am the God fearing, gun toting, flag waving conservative you were warned about!

    The different front sights are different heights to allow for changing elevation,mine shoots federal 550 bulk box ammo like a fat kid eats candy,I find that this ammo functions better in all my 22's when compared to other cheap 22's

    Thanks for the report. I've looked at them on line, but haven't had a chance to put my hands on one. Noting like a good .22 for general plinking.
