Get your hands on 85% of the Greatest pistol in history.
John M. Browning developed the Model 1911 to fire the powerful 45 ACP cartridge. We developed it to fire the 22 L.R. and, after extensive testing and research, determined that 85% of the original size was ideal for the smaller cartridge. Put one in your hands and we know that you’ll agree. The grip is comfortable even in large hands and feels equally at home in smaller ones. The lightweight alloy construction is anything but light duty. Own a little piece of history today.
You will find a familiar friend in the 1911-22 pistol. All controls operate just as those on the original John M. Browning-designed Model 1911.
The straight blowback design offers enhanced simplicity and reliability.
Machined from aircraft-grade aluminum to exacting tolerances.
Vertical serrations provide an improved cocking grip. The convenient manual slide release is easily operated with the shooting or support hand.
Large manual thumb safety and grip safety.
The steel magazine body is heattreated for long-term feeding reliability and long life. Our coil spring provides a consistent follower angle. 10-round capacity.
Positioned adjacent to the trigger guard for convenient operation.
In 2011 the 1911-22 was selected as Field & Stream magazine's Best Handgun of the year. An overview, provided by Field & Stream is below.
Best New Handgun: Browning 1911-22 A1 -- In the early 1900s jungle warfare in the Philippines exposed the inadequacies of the .38 revolver and sent the U.S. Army on a search for an official large-caliber semiautomatic service sidearm. After a famed government test in 1910 when it fired 6,000 rounds in two days without a malfunction, the single test gun being dunked in a water bucket when it overheated, John Moses Browning’s “Automatic Pistol, Caliber .45, M1911” became that sidearm.
Now, in honor of the 100th anniversary of a great firearm, Browning has come out with a new scaled-down version in .22 Long Rifle, the 1911-22 A1. We used Remington 40-grain .22 Target rounds to test-fire the gun, albeit somewhat less than 6,000 times in a row. The best performance was a 21⁄2-inch five-shot group fired from a rest at 25 yards. Though it has a heavy factory trigger, for plinking or for teaching a kid to shoot, the 1911-22 A1 has a lot of potential. -T.M.

    Worth the money

    This little gem is a ton of fun at the range. Even with cheap ammo that doesn't cycle well through other 22s, this Browning sets anything I put in it with no FTE or misfires. Really great gun that got my wife interested in shooting.

    I love this gun. Perfect for small hands. There's no kick to hurt your hand. It's light weight perfect for concealed carry. Perfect gun, with no complaints!

    Great Pocket Gun

    Posted by Ray Sr. on Mar 20th 2013

    It has a Great Feel and is a Blast to shoot. It almost feels too light at first (About one pound) but you get used to it when your arm does not get tired. No problems with Jams, Cycles perfectly. I wish they included a second Magazine as it only came with one.

    Superb Quality

    Posted by E on Jan 19th 2013

    Although this pistol is expensive by .22 standards I can assure you that the quality is worth the price. I have put about 300 rounds through it with no hiccups. The sites are rudimentary but for a fun pistol to throw rounds down range it's not that big of a deal. The fit and finish follow Brownings quality reputation, when you hold it in your hand you know you're holding something that will last years and years and provide extensive amounts of joy for you and whomever you shoot with. Great for new shooters or those who don't handle recoil well such as myself because of a badly broken wrist in my past. Holsters are difficult to find I only found 1 made for this pistol but if you don't plan on carrying it at all then you don't need to really worry about that. Overall it's a beautiful pistol and it's manufactured quality cannot be beat. 5 out of 5.
