    Prelim Range Report-

    Ok folks, here you go. I want to start by saying that I am in no way a range expert. I shoot often, but in a recreational capacity only, so if this report isn't helpful, forgive me and look elsewhere...

    I took the Sig 1911 .22 out yesterday and put around 200 rounds through it from various distances, but primarily at 10-15 yards.

    FEEDING- The gun performed beautifully until I idiotically loaded it with some Winchester uncoated rounds. I wanted to see if it could feed crappy ammo, and guess what? The answer is NO. It misfed every round. But with the Remington coated, the gun performed beautifully, only misfiring once in 150 rounds.

    CONSTRUCTION- I've been looking at 1911 .22's pretty seriously lately, and the Sig was the first one that I thought had a solid construction from fit to finish. It's as solid as my primary carry firearm, a Colt Defender. Of course it is lighter, but the finish is VERY nice. I'll post some pics of it here shortly. It's a GI model and as soon as I picked the gun up, felt how solid it was and ejected the METAL clip, I knew it was going home with me.

    BALANCE- The gun seems to balance very well, but I'm not a super good judge since my only other real experience is with the shorter Defender. I have very large hands (I'm 6'3, 300pounds) and the gun felt very good to me.

    ACCURACY- It's too soon to really tell, but off the cuff, I shot low on every shot. I really had to adjust to get on target. Once I adjusted, I was grouping shots in a space of about 5 inches, which for me is really good, but for an expert is kind of a joke.

    OVERALL IMPRESSION- All in all, I really like the gun. I wish I had a full .45 that was exactly like it. It seems like a good deal on a solid firearm and I'll really enjoy shooting it often and saving tons on ammo.


    Hope that helps!

    Correct me here if I am wrong.. but I believe that the Sig 1911 .22 is just a rebranded GSG.. or at least that is what the counter clerk at the lgs lead me to believe.. still want to get one tho as it is cost comparable to a .22 upper.

    Is the Sig model more $$ in comparison?

    I have the GSG and it has been a great gun so far. 3,000+ rds. Fun plinker and a gun that a newb can learn how to replace parts on as so many parts can be upgraded. Here's mine.

    It is the same gun that you pay more money for. Does come with nicer grips but that is all.

    I looked at the GSG when I was first started looking. The Sig seemed like a little nicer finish, but pretty much the same. I'm no expert though.

    they are the same. to the poster who has a gsg and loves it, i'm glad...I am the other side of the coin with gsg.

    when the firing pin breaks (and, it will) you'll see why.

    oh, and when it happens, call gsg to order replacements. don't look online, just call them.
