I am wanting a good 1911-22 to play around with, what do you all have and prefer?
I say pick up a good 1911 and get a conversion kit. I've used a Ciener platinum conversion kit on my 1911A1 for years and love it. I've run on on a Colt and on a Springfield. I'm thinking of picking one up for my commander.I am wanting a good 1911-22 to play around with, what do you all have and prefer?
Similar design, different adapter.Tractiongrips said:Can you unscrew the end of the barrel and use a Walther P-22 threaded barrel adaptor? I've been looking at the Colt/Umarex, but I'd like to be able to use a suppressor like I do with my Walther P22 pistols.
Ah, yea the idiot hole. What 1911s NEED is a screw to fix the pretravel (trigger slop, where you touch the trigger and it moves but does not fire). What you get is the idiot hole, which fixes posttravel (movement after the gun has fired). Worse, if you monkey with the postravel screw in most 1911s (not sure about this .22 clone) you can mess it up so that it does not work quite right and even mess it up so that the gun can do odd things and even damage the sear to hammer fit (moreso if the gun is highly tuned). The post travel fix can be nice, but without pretravel adjustment, it is just a dumb adjustment that causes as much trouble as it solves and, as noted, makes the trigger less comfortable to boot.I have the GSG. Its a good quality gun but kinda boring. No recoil at all. Feels lime shooting bb gun.
The trigger is a bit uncomfortable, the hole that allows you to I guess Allen wrench something to make some change starts to irritate my trigger finger after 50 rounds or so.
I do have a gem of a .22 1911 but, alas, it is an older and long since out-of-production design -- an old Kart Custom long-slide conversion, similar in design and operation to the old Colt Ace.... Old thread, anyone have a real gem in their 1911 22s? I have thought about it, but so far none has jumped out as an amazing purchase....
