    "The new Browning 1911-22 pistol is almost an exact replica of the original 1911, just smaller. The new Browning 1911-22 is 85% the size of the original 1911 John M. Browning design."

    For $600? Pass.

    it has what looks to me to be a more modern (higher) cut under the trigger guard, but thats probably a direct result of the gun being smaller.

    trying not to make it seem so drastic when you wrap your hand around it.

    big mistake making it a mini imho. well big mistake making it a 22 too but i guess thats another story.

    Yeah, I posted that a couple weeks ago.

    I'm hoping Browning introduces a real 1911 at some point. :dunno:

    Maybe they could get FN to make it with the reliability and quality of a Hi Power....


    We can dream right?

    Not me.

    It it was full size, I would consider it, but not for that price.

    Yeah, imagine a Belgian 1911. I like the thought of it, actually. :thumbsup:

    Of course, you know it wouldn't be FN building it if it did happen. :crying:

    I'll withold judgement until I have one in my hands. You never know, this may turn out to be a Made in the USA winner.

    I can't relate to the size...85%.

    Would that be the old Colt 380 goverment size or bigger?

    But, I like the concept. Needs a beavertail, better sight model.
    Maybe a steel frame model also.

    Then....380/9mm models, reduced sized 1911s would do very well IMHO. :supergrin:

    When I see one available for sale at the local gun shop I am going to get one. It's a 22, so it should be reduced in size a little.
