ATI 2210M1911 M1911 10+1 22LR 5"
[2210M1911]
$320.00
by Michael S Date Added: Monday 19 September, 2011
It took a bit longer than what I expected since many reviewers seemed to have gotten theirs in a few days, mine took the full 7 days. Bud's processing times were not exactly the quickest in my case, but I'm satisfied it did not take terribly long for them to get it to me.

Now then, about the hand gun itself. I received my GSG M1911 on September 15, 2011, and it was in excellent condition. After cleaning it up and making sure everything functioned properly I took it out to the range for the first time the following day. I was shooting Winchester Xpert HV .22LR and it was an absolute disaster! Constant FTF's and more than a few stove pipes, to make sure it was not the pistol I kept plugging away with the ammunition and finally determined that it had to be either an ammunition or magazine problem.

Now you're asking how is it that you're giving the gun 5 stars if you had so much grief with it? Well that's because it's not the guns fault, it was simply the ammunition I was using. The GSG 1911 seems to dislike ammunition that is not copper jacketed, mine simply did not like Winchester or any rounds that were simply lead. After purchases 200 rounds of CCI Mini Mag HP rounds, the handgun functioned flawlessly, and I noticed it was much cleaner than then I ran the Winchester stuff through it. Even the cheap Remington .22 rounds fed and fired without a hitch (Note, the Remington .22 ammunition was copper jacketed).

With the proper ammunition being fed to the gun, it shoots beautifully, and I'd highly recommend one to anyone who wants to practice with a 1911 style handgun and not cry whenever they pull the trigger due to ammunition costs. It hefts almost exactly the same if not a few ounces lighter than a real .45 ACP 1911 and has all the same controls and almost the same break down methods. You simply can't get anything better than this IMO. Only thing I dislike about the gun is that the irons are plastic and not metal, though I've read that they are interchangeable with standard M1911 sights, so that's not a big deal.

If I had to do it all over again, I'd probably get one in stainless if I could find one. A must buy for any M1911 fan IMO.
