    For the life of me I can't recall the name of that 1911 conversion that uses your existing frame and they sell the top half of the gun. It has the barrel built in to the slide. Supposed to be super accurate.

    Well, Colt sold .22 conversions for a number of years. Without Googling "1911 .22 conversions", I can tell you off the top of my head that Tactical Solutions, Kimber, and Ceiner all currently offer them. I'm sure there are others.

    Are you maybe thinking of Marvel Precision Arms .22 conversion for the M1911?

    No, it's not a .22 conversion.

    It's a whole new concept in the way the 1911 works. Still 45acp.

    I've never seen a gas operated 1911.

    Where does the gas go? I wonder if the breech remains locked until the bullet exits the muzzle. That would be an accomplishment.

    That typically means, "it works."

    I wonder what that "attractive price" will be.

    I must admit, I'm curious. It appears to be a division of Hogue, a company with a good reputation. The switch above the slide release has me thinking take down lever.

    Blocky, all range or game gun...open class, of course. It will be heavy, I'd bet its a blow back action. Looks too much like a High Point and bet it costs way more.

    Does look futuristic, though.

    If I had an extra $1,395.00 laying around I'd get it.:)

    Hogue has cataloged it for years, if they actually are making them now, it may move from vaporware to a niche product for the shooter who has everything.

    Wow, just read through the Avenger's manual and have got to say, this thing looks way more complicated (and with far too many little internal parts), for me to spend that kind of money on. Definitely not the KISS Principle at work here.

    The whole assembly/disassembly routine, along with having to use their own special tools (the VST-Very Special Tool, the APT-Avenger Pin Tool, and a flathead screwdriver), including several warnings that various parts and tiny springs MAY FLY OUT while disassembling, would give me some cause for concern. The whole thing reminds me of a Benelli B-76 I once owned. Nice gun but over-engineered in its design.

    Looks like a Hi Point conversion!

    There was a company called NCG that offered 1911 gas operated top ends. Google search turned up nada, so I'm assuming they're gone.
