Saw a Colt/Umarex 1911 .22lr today for $399.00.
Also saw a thread on the GSG/Sig 1911
Don't know a whole lot about the colt but It was beside a chiappa ($329) a GSG ($359) and a Sig ($379) ...all 1911 .22lrs. The Colt did seem to feel better than the chiappa and as good or slightly better than the GSG/Sig. It also had the best finish (in my opinion)

I had done a little research before of 1911 .22lr's and it seemed that the general consensus was the chiappa/puma is not very good.....the Sig is a rebranded GSG but it does seem to get mostly favorable results. Did not know much about the Colt....seems to be fairly new and I can't find out much. So far it seems

1) Made by Walther in Germany for Colt and imported by Uramex (quite a mouthful)
2) Has 12 round mag. (others have 10)
3) Does not need allen wrench or tools to field strip (GSG/Sig does)
5) Fixed barrel (not sure about the others)

Anybody own one of these or can tell me any more about the Colt?
