Sig Sauer 1911-22

I'm thinking about getting a Sig 1911-22. I did a search and found one thread on this weapon and was just wondering if anyone else had anything to add about the gun. I realize that it is not a high quality, expensive weapon but I'm just looking for something that is fun, easy and inexpensive to shoot. I have the opportunity to pick one up for around $300. Pull the trigger or not on this one?

For $300? I'd buy it. What's the worse-case? Seriously? You could sell it for $300 pretty dang fast.

Personally, I'd put the $300 into a higher quality rimfire, but if you want something that is based on a 1911, go for it.

How about a Ruger Mark series pistol?

Maybe a Browning Buck Mark?

Another suggestion for a Ruger Mk series or 22/45. Mine run great and are very accurate as well.

Sure

If you don't mind a revolver instead.

Another vote for Ruger !

I have 2 of the MKIII Hunters and love them.
Reliable,accurate as well as a lot of accessories available
for them.

If you MUST have a 1911 based .22lr,I would get a Marvel conversion and use it on one of your current 1911's.

That way you would be practicing with a 1911 with a trigger pull that you are used to,and the accuracy is far superior to that of the GSG/SIG pistols.

Folks that have the GSG 1911-22 and Sig 1911-22[made by GSG] seem to like them. I have the Sig and its a fun plinker. It is not a competition pistol but then I am not a competition shooter.

Best.

Thanks for the input. I think I'm going to grab one. I really like the looks of the 1911-22 and don't currently own a 1911 so that is part of the draw to this one. Most of the reviews are pretty good and for $300 I don't think I'll regret it. I guess it can be kind of picky with ammo at first but after broken in it'll eat most anything. Should be a great shooter for my wife and something I can teach the kids with. I'll let you all know how it goes. Thank again.

I'm sure you will enjoy it.
As will many semi-auto .22lr pistols, try a few different brands of ammo.
Seems not all of them like the same ammo.

Post a pic or two when you get it!

I actually love mine. Goes to the range, every time.

I didn't have the intention of getting it as a target gun, but it's intended as a training gun; clearing malfunctions, mag changes, etc.

I like that fact that it's similarly set up as my 1911s/2011. It's just cheap fun for quick drills. And I love the fact that 22LR ammo are finicky, thus causes unexpected malfunctions.

Here's my GSG 1911-22. Mods are:
sanded off naked slide
Ed Brown barrel bushing (tighter fit on the slide to eliminate rotating)
Ed Brown plunger spring (a must to help with putting pressure on the SS from bouncing)
left over SA ambi thumb safety
left over SA hammer
Caspian flat trigger
Brazo Custom FO front sight.
Gunkote flat black.

I have a Buckmark already and wanted a 1911 style .22. The local Academy has a Sig 1911-22 and the counter guyand I both agree it is a 'scracth and dent" show model that might be cheaper than list price. HOWEVER.... I picked up a Kimber conversion and will be putting it on a fullsize frame just FTHOI. I think the better sights will benefit me.

Several plinker kits cheaper than the Marvel, but the Marvel is a good one.
