    I looked at the Chiappa 1911 22 cal auto and it is not a steel frame, a magnet would not attract, it seems to be a lighter material, POT METAL ?

    Could be Aluminum, booklet does not give construction information.

    $250 new in box including tax.

    Right now, there are no good prices for a buyer of a quality firearm.

    If you have waited until now to buy guns and ammo, you are late in the game.

    Right now, I am training and working part time to make ends meet. Guns from the wholesale side are not available. Some are trickling out to dealers who have had them backordered for who knows how long?

    Expect to pay a new price for a used gun, and retail or above for a new one, if available.

    Extra mags? Hold on to your seat. Ammo? WOW!

    used XD .45 tactical, 2 boxes of shells through it, just sold to a friend for $480, he set the price, felt it was fair, basically a new pistol. Scott

    Chiappa .22 or XD .45, now thats funny right there. Might as well compare a Yugo to a Vette...

    Which XD .45 you looking at? The 4" ones, used are $475 here in NE Indiana.

    BigM,

    Where can I get me one of them there decoder rings? I've been trying to decipher his babble ever since I joined here. Thus far I attributed it to mental health issues, drugs, Alzheimer's or a combination of all. His posts remind me of riddles. I hate riddles.
