    Same as Sig? Saw it today and was recomended on my post about Chiappa or Sig 1911 22. I was originally looking at a Buckmark, but was sold the morning I went to pick it up!! No communication at LGS. Bad pert is I help out there at times!! Oh well must not have been meant to be. Thanks in advance

    I think you would be happy with the GSG. the only flaw with it is the finish. It does scrath easily. I shot the heck out of mine. When the wifey dropped it and scratched it, it kinda hurt. I stripped it and Duracoated it. I ended up giving it to my uncle(he loved it that much). I have been looking for another to replace it.

    Gun is zamak if that matters to you, some care and some don't, just thought I'd let you know.

    A guy over on the Bryco forums used one for his students in a concealed carry class for quite a while and the only issue he had was a student tried to insert the plastic magazine backwards and broke it.

    Edit: My mistake, now that I think about it his gun was the Chiappa .22lr 1911 and not the GSG.

    I understand that the SIG is made by GSG.

    The ones that don't care probably don't know what Zamak is, it is the same die cast white metal cap guns were made of 50 years ago when I was a kid. Another name for it is pot metal!

    Yes but for weaker calibers like .22lr and .25acp it doesn't matter too much really. Once you step it up past that you start having parts breakages.
