Anybody have one of these guns? The ones imported by Umarex from Walther with the Colt trademarks on them. The thought of a fixed-barrel 1911 .22 with "Made by Walther in Germany" stamped on the frame is novel and somewhat appealing. But I don't know anybody who's taken the plunge yet, depsite the price just below $400.


I understand most of the lower-unit parts are interchangeable with 1911 .45 parts, so given the fact that a standard trigger job could be done, this might have merit as a project gun. Unlike most of the conversion units, this one locks the slide open after the last shot, and the barrel is fixed, which would seem to obviate some of the accuracy issues.


Anyway, I'd be interested in hearing the collective wisdom, from people who have shot it & evaluated the functioning and accuracy.


(Really not interested in any info about conversion units, as I already have one...thanks!)

Are you talking about the GSG 1911 made in Germany? I have shot one that an aquaintance owns and I was really impressed. They have an optional fake suppressor. Mike.

Bulge,


I've seen those, but am not sure if it's made by someone different. Does the slide lock open on the last shot on that one?


I guess SIG is making something similar now, so it appears the market is getting crowded.

The Sig 1911-22 has been out for about a year now, last round hold open, very close frame to slide clearance, adjustable sights and will cycle with standard velocity ammo.

I have and enjoy the Colt .22 Umarex/Walther.
I have the Gold Cup model with adjustable sights.
When I first got it the trigger pull was inconsistant and heavy.
I changed out the sear spring with a lighter version and it was like day and night.
The trigger is crisp and clean after changing the spring.
I have not felt the need to do any further alterations at this time.

There is another variation that does not have the Colt logo on it that looks idential and has a lower price.

I am very happy with mine, as it is a big immprovement over the colt conversion I was using.

+1 on the Sig. I looked at the colt first, the ATI second and the sig last. Bought the sig right at $405.00.
