    Colt-Walther

    Since I gave the original I bought to my daughter... I bought another

    $273 from Guns Midwest in Kansas City

    Colt 1911-22 (made by Walther)

    Congratulations! Buying another is the ultimate compliment, of course, but tell us more about it.

    It's a blowback 22, right? What's the slide made of? Is it 100% 1911 functionality? Ammo preferences? Talk, talk!

    While it's an all metal gun... I'm unsure of the slide composition (alloy vs steel is my guess)

    Many parts are interchangeable with 1911... Per this article

    https://www.pewpewtactical.com/colt-...er-gun-review/

    While I haven't shot this one yet (waiting for my two extra 12-rd mags I ordered from midway.... Gun only came with one 10-rd)... My previous one (now my daughter's) was NOT finicky with ammo like many .22s can be.

    The picture below from pew pew tactical article shows the unique breakdown

    Some similar dissasembly steps to a 1911... Some different

    The gun is a full size replica of a 1911Name:  IMG_16112019_125145_(300_x_200_pixel)_1573930329598.jpg

    It's a fixed barrel, straight blowback design similar to the Walther PPK or the P22. The slide is made of aircraft grade Aluminum, and the frame is made of Walther's proprietary mystery metal which is supposedly an Aluminum alloy.

    Looks good I need a 1911 in 22 lr. I think I am going to buy a Nelson conversion that I can mount a Aimpoint red dot on.

    That's a nice looking gun and I bet it is fun (and inexpensive) to shoot. I just don't understand why, in a full size 1911 frame, they don't hold more than 10 (or 12) rounds. Doesn't a TX22 hold 16? I'd think you could get 22 or so in a 1911. Now THAT would be fun!

    Why does more ammo = "more fun"? Guess I don't get it. I have as much fun with my revolvers....or cap and ball. What's the point of high cap .22s? To see how fast you can waste ammo?
