View Full Version : .22lr 1911?

So as crazy as it sounds I am thinking of buying one of these.


Now $2195 MSRP for a .22LR 1911 is crazy. I can of course get a couple of nice .45ACP 1911s for that price or a pay for Bear or the majority of a full caliber Wilson, Nighthawk, Brown etc.

I have "enough" 1911s (whatever that means :rofl:) so I do not need a full caliber one for any real purpose. I had a .22LR 1911 (Puma) but it never felt right, I mean shooting it never caught my fancy. I think the cost of .22LR in a really nice 1911 is a great combo.

Of course I could just get a conversion unit for much cheaper. Heck I could buy a nice conversion unit and a nice Kimber to mount it on for example and still save money over the N.H. .22LR.

So besides the "if you want it get it" thing (Which I live by most of the time) are there any good reasons I should get this? Somebody talk me out of this!

What does everyone think? :dunno:

I hate 1911 shopping, too many damn options :crying:

I know it sure looks like it. :supergrin:

Kimber makes a dedicated .22LR 1911 as well. I would imagine that would be a nice one as well.

So here is the short list.

Nighthawk .22LR
Nighthawk Talon 2 .45ACP
Les Baer Monolith .38 Super
Wilson Protector .45ACp or .38 Super
Wilson Professional .38 Super
Brown Kobra .45 ACP
GunCrafters American .45ACP

See too many choices :crying: And that is the short list :rofl:
