I had a 1911-22 on layaway and I got it out today. Quick trip to the range to put a quick 250 rounds through and home again to clean and primp. I installed a set of 1911 grips that I had in the gun safe just because it's the minimum I could do to jazz it up. It operated flawlessly and my ammo was gone before I realized it. Accuracy was OK. It was shooting low right, but I compensated and was able to get them where I wanted them to hit. I discovered extra front sights packaged with the pistol after I got it home, so the next trip will be to accurize. Shooting was very enjoyable except for having to reload the mags. The pistol only came with one mag, so I bought an extra and surprise, surprise, surprise, The extra held 11 rounds while the supplied magazine only held 10. I took them apart after I got home and the only difference between the two mags was a small stud on the plastic piece at the bottom of the mag spring. That got cut right off, and now both mags hold 11 rounds. Fit and finish on the pistol was very good although if the wood grips had been nicer... nevermind, I would have changed them anyway. Paid a little less than $350, and it looks like I got a pretty good weapon for the money.
