Is a .22?
Seriously, I know rimfires are cool, but doesn't the platform deserve
more from it's namesake?
I know other makers have true .45s planned, I just thought FN/Browning might step up to the plate more earnestly.

"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.

Probably made by an airsoft company?

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.

...but not if its supposed to be a 1911 replica.

Exactly. People who buy .22 clones are usually wanting to use them as a training aid for their larger caliber firearms. Same size, not only means same feel, but same holsters as well.

With the cost of ammo going up so much over the past few years, we are seeing a lot of .22 matches springing up. Steel Challenge has had a .22 division for some time. Our local club just started a .22 action match based on USPSA / IPSC rules.

Made by ATI in Utah, same people who make the Buckmarks for Browning.
Quality has a chance of being quite decent.
