    1911 .22

    I want a good .22 pistol for plinking and I really like the 1911 style. I think it would be awesome to have a 1911 .22. I've mainly been looking at the Chiappa 1911 and the GSG 1911. Those are both under $300. Anyone know any common problems with either? I don't know much about em, so any input would be great. And if there are other good 1911 .22's that I don't know about please mention them

    If you have a 1911 there are conversion kits to shoot .22 available for most models...

    We had one of the GSG 1911s come into the shop and it was pretty sweet. The only thing I didn't like was the really stiff safety. That said it looks like a great gun.

    i know about the kimber models. dont want to spend that much on a .22 pistol. The GSG and the Chiappa are both under 300. and I dont want any conversion kits. just a designated .22 1911 pistol. thanks for the input on the GSG. I think that is the one I am leaning more towards right now. It is made out of all steel. The chiappa is pot metal.
