Craig Boddington takes the new Browning 1911-22 to the range. See what he thinks about this perennial design adapted to a plinker.
I want one!
Looks like a fun gun, but nothing as to the accuracy. Maybe a write up with different ammo?
Love the 1911 for years. Looks like another to love.
Someone who knows should show him how to hold it properly. .
Craig Boddington is a retired marine w/20 +years of active duty. He does not need to be told how to hold any firearm
Including a smaller version of one of his favorite pistols,T 1911
If Craig Boddington is a retired marine w/20 +years of active duty then he, if anyone, should know that you NEVER point a weapon at ANYTHING that you do not want to see destroyed. As a firearms instructor with over 30 years of gun handling experience it chills my blood to see at about 13 seconds into the video that Mr Boddington turns the weapon towards himself and sweeps the barrel across his own face. Anyone with a single day of firearms instruction with know never to do such a foolish thing.
Hopefully it’s not made of pot metal like some of the other .22 1911′s recently introduced.
It also needs a threaded barrel for suppression.
I am 69 yrs old and have been shooting since age 6. There are many ways to hold a handgun. I for one do not want to get my left hand anywhere near the muzzle when it goes bang.
Only he can know how safe the pistol is at that moment. Yes he screwed up in handling it, but how many of use have at one time or another. Too bad it wasn't caught before this segment ran. Oh, well…
I have a GSG 1911-22 and I am thrilled with it. Outstanding ten ring accuracy at 25 yards from a rest. Try several brands of amm to see which are most accurate and function best. It likes high velocity. Federal Gold medal, Winchester high speed, remington high velocity and thunderbolts all shot to 10 ring accuracy. Wolf, CCI mini mags and standard velocity did not. Blazer failed to cycle. Those are the only ones I have tried.
Just saw the video of the browning 1911-22
What is the price of one?
Can we see a price and spec comparison between the following
Colt Umarex 1911-22 new ? I saw this one listed from JG
sales for about $369
Browing 1911-22 new ?
Sig 1911-22 new from sig 2011 I have seen listed at
about the price range locally for $365
I have seen articles printed on some other versions
The colt Umarex is a first class weapon works perfectly and seems to be of high quality .It is made by walther in Germany and imported by Umarex no pot metal here.It shoots to the ten ring every time no malfunctions I highly recommend .All parts are the same as a standard 1911 and functions the same as a1911 including remaining open on the last shot.
See the umarex web site for pictures although it does not do it justice you need to see it in person,also check out 1911 .org web site the have a good review of it .
Nice…good info on the 1911. Too bad everyone is an expert and can do it better (but hasn't).
For the size and low cost of the 1911-22, it could be a great trainer for someone new to shooting or very young.
