Hello.

Sig lists two different weights of these on their website. Click o one color and it's like 18 oz and another is over 30 oz.

Are these full weight 1911's?

Anybody have one? Do they work? Be fun to buy a 550 pack and have fun. Or do they needthe good stuff from CCI?

Im looking at these pretty hard now. Haven't felt one in person though.

Any advice would be appreciated. Even other brands.

if you have a 1911, i'd recommend the Marvel conversion.

i looked at knedrgr's GSG-22, it's nice and all, but uses proprietary mags, so my Kimber and Marvel mags won't fit into the gun.

The GSG is sexy and they are working well. I built a Fusion alloy lower for my Kimber conversion to have a dedicated .22 1911. It won't shoot all the cheap ammo but runs well on Rem Golden and Federal bulk. It is accurate as hell and my most shot 1911. I'm ready to drop the $$$ on the Browning even though it is not full size as I'm a sucker for a GI style 1911.

Those conversions are nice.

When you buy a Marvel Conversion they include the "badge" that holds the test grouping for your unit. I have two units and they both have approximately a .55 inch group at 50 yards.

A NOTE ABOUT OUR TESTING PROCEDURES

Marvel test-fires each and every unit before it is shipped, and we test-fire them a lot. Every single one shipped will shoot under 1” at 50 yards. Now, when we say a Unit will shoot under 1”, we don’t mean once. We don’t mean twice. We mean consistently, time and time again. (Theoretically and mathamatically, any gun is capable of shooting a sub-one-inch group once.) And the target we ship with that unit is not the smallest one it shot - it is an average group from that individual Unit.

The targets you see on this page are extra average targets from Units we shipped (we test each Unit with between 100 and 200 rounds - so we get a lot of extra targets). We also urge you to test your new unit with your favorite ammos. Just because we got a .6732" group with your Unit and our lot of Eley doesn’tmean it won’t shoot better with some other ammo. Only testing will tell.

Here's my quick run down on my GSG 1911-22. Same thing as the Sig version.

I was looking at the Marvel conversion and also the Nighthawk.

A few seasons why I went with the GSG:
1) I don't have a spare lower for either of those upper conversions. And I wasn't just about to slap something together.

2) The LGS had the GSG 1911-22 on sale and walked out the door with it for $308.

3) The 22LRs are so finicky that malfunctions are expected. This is not a downfall, in my eyes. Therefore, it's a cheaper training tools for clearing malfunctions and getting the gun back into action.

4) Not trying to punch 0.5" holes in paper @ 25 yards.


Given that the slide is aluminum, it's not close to a full size steel 1911.

You can also try to look at RIA's new 1911-22. Should be on shelf soon. Looks really promising with a full steel gun.
