1911-22 Pistols

Get your hands on 85% of the Greatest pistol in history.

John M. Browning developed the Model 1911 to fire the powerful 45 ACP cartridge. We developed it to fire the 22 L.R. and, after extensive testing and research, determined that 85% of the original size was ideal for the smaller cartridge. Put one in your hands and we know that you’ll agree. The grip is comfortable even in large hands and feels equally at home in smaller ones. The lightweight alloy construction is anything but light duty. Own a little piece of history today. And now with the addition of a polymer-framed version, you have more choices than ever

Magazine

The 10-round magazine has a heat-treated steel body and coil spring for long life and smooth, reliable feeding. The polymer magazine follower and base pad offer durability with low maintenance, and the twin follower relief buttons allow for easier loading.

Safety

Just like the original 1911 design, the Browning 1911-22 has both a grip safety and a manual thumb safety, making it one of the safest autoloading rimfire pistols available.

The slide and frame are precision machined from aircraft grade 7075 T6 alloy for light weight and long life. A steel slide block encloses the firing pin and extractor, and a durable matte black anodized finish completes the overall package.
