    Gsg 1911 22lr

    I have a GSG 1911 and it runs great on CCI Mini Mags 22LR. It does not run well on most other Ammo that I have tried. Any one have any luck running anything else in there GSG 1911 22LR?

    I have the Sig version and it seems to run on everything.

    I bought mine in 2013 and it jams on all bulk ammo. What year did you buy yours?

    I have a GSG 922 1911 .22LR...its the one that looks like an officer 1911.

    Its a really cool little .22 - accurate and reliable for me.

    For "bulk" type .22LR I recently bought a bunch of Browning BPR .22 on sale (Browning Performance Rimfire).

    It runs in the GSG like a champ.

    That said - I settled on the Browning ammo b/c I don't like to go too cheap...cheap = dirty = .22 semi that wont run reliably.

    I also have had good luck with the Browning rimfire ammo! It seems to be very clean and consistent and runs great in my Ruger 22/45 which tends to be picky unlike the my M&P 22 Compact than eats anything including cheap bulk ammo even Thunderduds like a fat kid eating Skittles!

    I really don't recall when I acquired it. It was purchased pre-owned. You may want to ck some of the issues noted below with the early production units. Purchased in 2013 doesn't always mean made in 2013. Could have been sitting around awhile. You may want to contact ATI and run the serial #.

    Gun Review: German Sport Guns (“GSG”) 1911 .22


    Problem Areas

    If you spend any time reading older (2010 and 2011 era) internet reviews of the GSG 1911 .22, you’ll note consistent reports of a few key problem areas. In retrospect, it appears that the GSG 1911 .22 may have been rushed to the market. Fast forward two years, and it appears that the gun has now been thoroughly Beta-tested. As far as I can tell, GSG has resolved the major issues.

    But far and away, the biggest problem area was the factory guide rod and its associated buffer, washer, and spring. The first generation guide rod was both skeletonized and made out of zinc alloy. As a result, they tended to snap off at their base after as few as 500 rounds. GSG has made some design changes to the guide rod and the new ones seem to be doing much better. My test gun was still going strong at 1500 rounds when I swapped the factory guide rod out for a CWA replacement.

    The first generation recoil spring also caused a few headaches. GSG initially used the same tapered, directional recoil spring that they use on their GSG 522s. If you installed the spring in backwards, it could cause havoc with the gun. Fortunately, GSG now uses a non-tapered spring and my understanding is that ATI will retrofit the older units free of charge.

    The barrel bushings on the original GSG 1911 .22’s were made out of zinc alloy, and they frequently cracked. GSG’s now makes the barrel bushing out of steel which has resolved the problem.

    GSG originally outfitted the 1911 .22 with a rubber buffer disk, but that has been replaced by a clear plastic disk. The stainless steel washer was also redesigned, and is now shorter and thicker than the previous washer.

    The recoil spring plug was also redesigned by adding two small anti-twist “ledges” to the plug. These feet are critical to the operation of the pistol, and therefore aftermarket plugs should not be used.
