    I got to handle one of the new Colt (Umarex) 1911-22 pistols today at my local Academy Sports. It is very cheap in appearance and feel with the slide finish being a very coarse dull black with all of the Colt rollmarks filled in with a white coloring. I can't believe Colt licensed their name for this!:faint:

  2. I agree. When the .22 AR type came out I rushed to get one and left the store empty handed because it looked so crappy.

    What do you expect from:

    "Umarex USA - Airguns - BB & Pellet Guns - Airsoft - Air Rifles ..."

    Seriously? You couldn't pay me $100 to even pull the trigger on one for fear of some bodily injury.

    My Colt AR22 is practically indestinguishable from my S&W M&P 223.High quality inside n out
     
  10. You mean your Umarex AR22 with the Colt name on it. :tongueout:
    I just didn't like it when I handled it. It just felt cheap to ME.

    If it's not a Colt, it's a BETTER copy :tongueout:
     
  12. It doesn't matter...they licensed out their name, therefore, they wanted people to have a Colt in their hands, so it should have some QC that are within Colt's standard.
     
  13. :agree:

    It also had Umarex etched on the frame and as previously stated, the white lettering and the slide finish in general were "cheesy " to say the least. The best thing about it was the price......$380 + tax. Well, maybe that's not a positive. :whistling:

    I'm pretty sure they couldn't keep it a secret since the manufacturer has to be stamped on the gun.
