    GSG .22LR 1911 Review

    My GSG .22LR 1911 turned up between Xmas and New Years from Taieri Arms
    Couldnt pass the deal up. Got the pistol, extra mag and supp adaptor.
    Pistol comes in a good quality hardcase with 3 different height front sights, allen keys for disassembly, chamber brush, good manual and 1x metal magazine.
    The barrels are threaded and have a sleeve over the outside which runs in the barrel bushing.
    Being German made, the quality is VERY good.
    Night and day difference between it and the Chiappas on the market.

    Weight is supposed to be the same as a 'real' one, however the Rem weighs 1050gm and the GSG weighs 850gm
    This difference is in the slide as the .22LR doesnt have enough grunt to move a steel slide, so its made of an alloy
    Size wise its the same, and parts like the grip safety, backstrap, hammer, safety, grips, sights etc all swap out for 'real' ones.
    With slides open, mags will even fit either gun

    The gun strips down similar to a real one, with the difference of the barrel in the 22 is fixed where a real one it tilts down as it unlocks from the slide.
    There is a extra pin and allen key bolt holding the barrel to the frame, the rest is very similar.

    It comes with a mag safety, cant fire it without magazine in the well, which is a pain in the arse.
    Takes about 1 min to get rid of it, remove back strap, remove catch and spring and reassemble backstrap - fixed
    My only complaints at this stage is the grip safety requires too much pressure for my liking (easy fix) and I'd prefer a flat backstrap, however it may change with less pressure require on grip safety.
    The safety has as sharp corner in it, maybe just the way I hold the gun but its a PITA, once again, easy fix

    Hopefully get it out in the next couple of days for a shot

    Took it to the range today and ran some ammo through it
    Testing for function - no groups.
    Fired 10 mags off rapid fire with only 1 case not getting thrown 100% free - just caught up.
    Other than that it lovely to shoot - no recoil (surprise ) and feels nice and smooth - no clunkiness

    Next time out will try for some groups

    Grip safety needs to be lightened as my high grip sometimes doesnt disengage it.
    Flat backstrap woudl prob fix that too.
    Sofar, pretty impressed!

    Pistol shooting is the most fun. I wish we could hunt with pistols in NZ. I'd love to go shoot rabbits with a single-action .22 revolver.

    Do you have any revolvers Spanners?

    I would quite like one of these - 10 mm Ruger Vaquero.

    I'd just enjoy shooting a Glock with mates in privacy

    Can do that in Dunedin. Otago Pistol Club is out at Waldronville, 15 minutes drive. Once you're a full member + licensed you can get a key and shoot weekdays etc

    Classic.

    My family friend had a thing for Colt Pythons, so he's bought two .357's (one in stainless/one blued/wood).

    From memory, this was an old .38.. probably left over from the war. No idea make/model.
