    I thought my eyes were playing tricks with Browning's 1911-22. I saw the box with the full size and noticed the front 1911 looked so much smaller. I'm interested as to how it feels compared to a REAL 1911. It interested me enough to think about not getting a .22 conversion kit, but I'll stick with my idea of a AA or Marvel kit.

    The description says the .22 is only 15 oz.

    The set is a little out of my price range.:wow:

    IIRC, it's 3/4 size.

    Yep, about 80%.

    You can see the difference in size in that auction.

    :agree:

    Browning is building a real 1911 though. Its a 100th anniversary model, but that should lead to an everyday model at some point.
