Well I don't know who is making them but Walther is at least marketing one in three different models. They call them "Colt 1911 Pistol"

BTW if you are going to the web address I posted in the top banner on the right select English unless you can read German.

I have S & W 45ACP Pro series. I bought the Kimber 22 conversion kit which works like a charm.

parker samuel, That combination should work. Most of these conversion kits are ammo sensitive. I have a new Smith & Wesson E series 1911 with a Wilson Combat conversion. I have yet to find a good round. Still working on it.

I've tried all the 22 conversions for the 45 and the Marvel unit is the only one that I still have. The Ciener was both a terrible shooter, and a marginal company to deal with, in my experience. I've heard that the Kimber was made by Ciener, but now is actually made by Kimber?

If you have a 1911, you can make it a real range buddy with a marvel 22 unit.

My friend has the Ruger 22/45 and it's a camp gun with a straight grip. The Ruger 22 autos are very good guns and made here in the USA - all positive attributes.

I have several Ruger 22 rifles. A little trigger work and some effort at the range to find out what brand of ammo they like and you can have an excellent shooter. I don't keep exhibition guns. All my guns work, or they find a warm comfy spot in another safe.

You can't beat Marvel for conversions, or find a better company.

JMHO,
Kip

The Kimber 22 upper will work with some but not all 1911's. Mine is reliable with the right ammo. It works best on steel frames for some reason. The Aluminum carry frames...not so much.

Marvel is considered the best all around. The M1911.Org site has a lot of discussion about this.

i purchased one of the gsg 1911 pistols.for the money it is very close to the colt sreries 80 1911.since i love to work with guns i made a few changes,i changed the thumb safety,hammer spring housing,colt sear spring and barrel bushing(later models have a new ss bushing)i also had dark walnut grips so i added these.after all was done the trigger pull went from 5lbs. to 3lbs. well last night a fellow member & i took the 1911 to our local range inside and fired about 250 federal 22's.and what apleasure,not one jam,feed problem or stove pipe.we fired at 30ft,50ft.&25yds.at the shorter range we both put them in about 4"and 25yd we hit the target abt 6".for two old farts in our 80's we had a ball and it was sweet to shoot.at the end my friend said let me put in 8 bullets and fire at fast rate to see if it will jam up,it sounded like a machine gun and not a problem,so if it was a45 look what we would spend for bullets abd not as much fun. whiz630
