1911-22A1 GOVERNMENT .22 Long Rifle 4.25" Barrel, Blue Finish, Fixed Sights, 10 Round
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.

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.

Bought this dandy little weapon last Sunday, Monday fired 200 rounds Winchester hollow points, never missed a fire. It is very accurate, and so cheap and fun to shoot. Very concealable, Browning has done it again
so what to say its a great little gun very small so accuracy is naturally decreased compared to the ruger mkiii it is exxxxtreeeemly light weight almost funny on how light it is ud have to hold ontovit tight or ud loose it in the wind.
