It was my first time to see a nicely built 1911 in .22 LR. Its the Armscor Rock Island XT 22. Its a far cry from the cheapo GSG that you see in every gun store today. The all steeel construction just exudes quality. Anyone can say about its accuracy to whoever tried them ?
It looks like this

mine is as accurate as I am, I plan to use it in bowling pin matches this spring
mine also prefers hotter ammo, CCI minimags and Blazer seemed to be the winners, vut CCI SGB and velocitors were good also (just pricey)

Buy it Now price is $1 less than the OTD I paid for my .45ACP Tactical model. :eek:
A big beef with most of the cheaper ones is pot metal slides. Doesn't seem to be a problem with the RIA. Nice lookin' gun. ;)

A big plus for this gun is that it is built on a standard lower -- which means for the cost of a complete slide magazine and barrel, you can also have a .45 ACP.

It comes with a plastic type mag x one. Is the mag well made as well. Is it true the mag in the GSG 1911 .22 lr can be compatible on this this Armscor XT22?

yes, the mags are well made
they aren't particularly expensive to order straight from RIA
Kimber rimfire 1911 mags are compatible, but don't drop free and are more expensive
don't know about GSG magazines

So is this gun considered ammo pickey?

How good is the barrel on these ? Is it mediocre or high quality barrel which is the heart of any gun in terms of accuracy ? Anyone tested how tight their groups ? How is the barrel lock up as this is just open top ? I m used to fixed bull barrel on my Ruger Mk 2 5.5 bull so accuracy for me is important.
I see Sarco Inc has them in stock for $450. They also advertised them on gunbroker. It looks nice and cool as it has the 1911 allure and in .22 LR caliber. But if the accuracy is par with the Ruger s, then it might be worth getting. If not, i rather get a Ruger 22/45 .
