    I'm thinking of picking up a 1911-style plinker, like the GSG.

    I'm now wondering about these Brownings. Pricy though. I think they run $500, or at least that's the projected price.

    Any info? :dunno:

    I've been wanting one too. I would be willing to pay a little more for the Browning. I've heard good and bad about the GSG.

    Where did you find that Brian? Browning's website doesn't have them on there.

    I actually wish Browning would introduce a real 1911, like Remington did this year.

    Who knows, maybe they will after this. :dunno:

    What is the deal with the two holes on the right side of the slide? Pinned extractor? Looks odd.

    Edit.....Oops.....Just realized it is a .22. My bad.....

    this turns any 1911 into a great plinker.

    Per a thread on Rimfire Central, these are 80% the size of a 1911. Kind of kills my interest as a plinker. If you want a rimfire consider a Kimber or Marvel conversion (depending on how much you want to spend).
    Have fun whichever way you go BAC!

    Well, I wouldn't buy it as a 1911 anyway, but that does kind of lessen my interest a bit.

    What have you heard bad about the GSG? The only thing i have heard is that the barrel bushing breaks. But so what, replace it with a WC or the like and youll be good to go. Everything else i have heard has been great, if there is something negative can you please direct me to it because as soon as our distributors get one in i was planning on picking one up

    I did a lot of research on them, as I was planning to pick one up last week, but ultimately decided against it. I however, wanted to fund something else. Most people seem to praise the GSG, however there are also some known problems. As you mentioned, the barrel bushing was a known issue, but they since have gone to steel. I've also seen the slides break, and I've read the finishes aren't very good.

    But, other than those issues...I've heard nothing but good things about them! And FWIW, I wouldn't pay over $330 for one (dealer cost is $275).
