I got one a couple of weeks ago but I haven't had a chance to shoot it yet. I hope to be able to change that this afternoon!

Love it! One of the most used range guns I have. My only problem is that the sporting guide broke and I'm waiting on a replacement. Other than that, I've been very happy with it!

Yep, my bad. Typed the msg from my phone and looks like it autocorrected!

I've changed the mainspring housing, leaf spring, trigger bow, sear and disconnect to get it exactly where I want it. I've got a Ruger MkIII, Browning Buckmark Field and this GSG-1911 for .22 pistols. It gets more range time than the other two combined. I wouldn't hesitate in getting one.

Had mine for 8 9 months, bought used. I love it, little lighter than my real 1911s but size controls all the same. No issues threw it, a few rounds that didn't fire , but I buy the cheapest bulk ammo and that seems to be the case with all my 22s (8 diffrent ones). I would recomend it to anyone that wants a good fun gun.

But is the trigger pull and reset anything like a real 1911?

I don't own one, but they have been getting great reviews.

I was impressed with the model I handled.

I love mine. I upgraded a bunch of parts (it accepts most 1911 parts). It runs well.

I had one for a while- good shooter, but not as accurate as my Buckmark. I did have a barrel bushing break and launched the recoil spring to places unknown - ATI eventually replaced the defective parts.

I have had one for about a year and really like it. I had some issues running some idpa drills recently but had to clean the extractor and give it a good cleaning and it runs like a top again. I would highly recommend one if you are looking for a fun range 22.

A GSG 1911 was found under the Christmas tree yesterday. I have NO idea as to where it came from. A few hours ago I put about 150 rounds of Federal bulk (the ones from Wally World) through it without a single problem. I did not shoot on paper, but only plinking at ground targets. Therefore, I cannot assess it's accuracy very well, but I can already tell that it will not shoot groups as small with this ammo as the Hammerli Trailside that we also brought along.

Trigger pull was pretty decent, so it was a pleasure to shoot. I think it would be a worthy addition to anyone's .22lr collection, but OTOH I don't think I would recommend one if someone were limited to just one .22lr semi-auto.

I recently purchased one, and it's one of my favorite gun.

First range session:
Put about 200 rounds down range, and couldn't be anymore satisfied. Ran 100 rounds of Remingtons and 100 Federals. And it seems this gun likes the Rem better than the Fed. With the Feds, I immediately had some stove pipes and FT eject and extract.

By all means, I'm not bum about it. I know 22's are more finicky than other ammos. And this just gives me more chances to deal and practice with clearing malfunctions. Therefore, this pistol is giving me the training I was looking for.

I was reading all about the rotating barrel bushing. My gun is a newer version, and had came with a new metal barrel bushing, but it was freely turning. So, I have a spare Ed Brown bushing laying around, and it fitted nice and snugly onto the slide. Even had to use the barrel bushing wrench. So no movement to break the recoil rod.

The trigger is the same as a 1911, so it's a great tool for some cheap trigger time and practice at the range. I'll need to do a flat trigger and then give it a slight trigger job for a cleaner break. But the stock trigger feels roughly about 4.5 to 5.5 lbs.

Current form with a few mods.
Nighthawk aluminum checkered flat MSH
Ed Brown MSH internals
Ed Brown SS barrel bushing
Brazo 0.240 FO front sight

Still need to fit my new Wilson flat trigger
Rimfire Forum

80% of the parts are interchangeable with standard 1911 parts:
Barrel Bushing
Front & Rear Site
Hammer
Trigger
Grip Safety
the Whole Main Spring Housing
Thumb Safety
Sear
Disconnector
Sear Spring
Grip Panels (but not the screws because they're in metric)
Mag Release
Sear Pin
Hammer Pin
Plunger Tube
Plunger Spring

There have been a report of the slide stop notch peening, and no one has seem to have a solution for. And I've read some wild guesses as to why the notch is getting peen at the very corner. To this, I will offer my theory.

The notch is NOT being peen by the slide locking on the last round. It's being peen due to normal firing and every time the slide goes rearward and the stop is BOUNCING and kissing the notch. The reason the slide is not looking back is from the lack of an empty mag and follower to keep it in place.

So the culprits behind this could be a couple of reasons:
1) a weak plunger spring.
I've taken mine apart and the stock spring is as strong as a wet noodle. It was a joke. So I replaced the whole plunger spring and ends with Ed Brown replacement kit. I also polished both ball ends with some fine grit sand paper for a smoother finish.

After installing the new spring and caps, the slide stop wouldn't engage on an empty mag, which means that the new plunger spring was just a little too strong for the mag spring. I had to manually engage the stop upward. I removed the slide stop and saw the marking from the ball end. I took some used 600 grit paper, wrapped it around a small screw driver, and polished that area on the slide stop. Insert the stop and it worked on an empty mag.

So, the stronger plunger spring will keep the stop from bouncing, during firing, and will properly lock the slide on an empty mag.

2) hand grip.
Depending on your grip, it can come into slight contact with the SS and cause it to move slightly up, thus making contact with the notch, as the slide goes rearward.

So there are my theories, and I'm banking on number one, and I hope my "solution" will work out. Only time will tell.



Here's a picture to better help illustrate what I'm talking about.

Here's the back side of the GSG slide stop. Note the scratch or contact area of the ball end of the plunger spring. You will also notice the two slopes; top and bottom, on this back side. The top slope should help to keep a downward force on the SS from bouncing up, during normal firing. And the bottom slope should help to keep the SS up, once the mag follower has engage the SS.

You'll need to polish both of these planes for a smooth, low friction, travel for the SS to work with a true 1911 plunger spring that replaced the stock GSG plunger spring.

Rimfire Forum

Went to the range and put another 200 rounds thru her. The modified SS and new plunger spring works perfectly. And the slide doesn't show any signs of peening.

No. Chiappa is Italian. GSG is German, and the GSG 1911 .22lr is made in Germany.

I just recently purchased one of these and love it. I was very impressed by the build quality of the gun and the magazines. I've been to the range with it 3 times so far and found it is a little picky about ammo. Mine seems to prefer CCI mini mags. I found with Federal bulk I have a few FTE's. It does not like Win Wildcats at all.

This was the first gun I've ever purchased knowing nothing about the manufacturer. I typically do lots of research before buying any gun, but this one caught my eye and I took a chance. Very glad I did now.

Stock photo from Google, but mine is identical to this pic.

I would stay far away from the Sig Mosquito. I do a lot of work at Sig Sauer and the guys I work with have always told me "do not buy a mosquito"
