    Any feedback on the .22 1911s.. I have a Sig 1911 .22 and haven't shot my .45 or my G19 since I've bought it..

    I have a Chiappa .22LR 1911. It's ok. great looking and plenty of fun to shoot but you can get better quality. My biggest complaint is the "Floating wedge" type adjustable rear sight.

    Thanks!

    Yes, I'd refinished the complete gun in black GunKote.

    The Sig/GSG is a great model.

    I had a GSG and later sold it.
    Replaced it with the UMAREX/Colt version.
    In my experience, the Colt is a bit more accurate than the GSG and has functioned more reliability.
    Makes a nice companion to my "basic" 1911:

    Looks great! What sights do you have.. I agree that the sights are cheap on my Sig.. Adjusted the rear sight once and stripped the plastic threads on it..

    Thanks!

    I'm running a Brazo Custom FO front sight, and I really like it.

    For the rear, it's the stock rear sight, just re-profile to remove the steps on the sides, and have a better "cocking-hook" on the front of the sight. I was going to run a spare 10-8 rear on there, but decided to give the stock a face lift. Still need to black it out to cover the rear dots.

    .....all USA made for me. yes, it cost me a bit more but she shoots great.

    Kimber-Fusion chewy goodness. I built a Fusion lower for my well used Kimber conversion. I ditched the goofy 'target sights' for some sexy Champions. I've got well over 10,000 happy rounds downrange dancing beer cans in the desert.
