Chiappa 1911/22 22 LR 5" 10+1 Wood Grip Matt
[191122]
$194.00

It is hard to give this product 5 stars but its partially my fault, I just didn't know enough about handguns, I ve dealt with rifles all my life. I got a lot of FTF with this gun and its very dependent on the ammo you use but also part of the machinery of the gun. I ve had 2 jams, with Eley Edge ammo, I got half of my magazine FTF, I had a little better luck with CCI Stingers and Hollow Points. I was very enthusiastic about owning a 1911 type gun and one that wasn't expensive and in a caliber of ammo that was super cheap, so it seemed like a real steal. However, this gun is only for fun or teaching someone how to shoot.

Sure you could possibly use this as a self defense/carry gun but you would have to be a master marksman because I ve shot this thing at phone books and two will stop anything I throw at it from 10 yards away. Like I said part of this was due to my lack of experience with handguns, the same 22 ammo shot out of my rifle does more damage and way more accurate but thats a given. I have to say the gun really looks cool and seems like all the other 1911s, I just wish I saved my money for a larger caliber 1911. Again, the gun isn't probably the best for trying to save you or your families life but it is fun for plinking or training someone else how to use a handgun.

Rating: 4 of 5 Stars! [4 of 5 Stars!]
