Do you already have a 1911 that you can buy a coversion for? Or would the 1911 be a total new gun? For nothing more than hunting paper I'd go with the ruger, if your planing on paying the price of the ruger for the 1911. Hard to out shoot the ruger in that price range.

I love the looks of the 22lr 1911 in various brands. but they are grossly overpriced compared to other 22 pistols and likely nowhere near as accurate.

If you have the hots for a 1911, get a 45 auto and it will retain its resale value.

If you want a 22, you want something inexpensive to shoot. dont spend $600 unless your after a competition 22.

Years ago I just had to have a Colt Ace when I shot a lot of competition. Wanted it for cheaper practice. It would only shoot pretty good using Eley 10X, not cheap.

After awhile I lost interest in my factory Ace and sold it. If I had to buy a targetish .22 it would be a good Ruger (not all are) or a CT made High Standard.

I still have my Hamden made Victor.
