Umarex Colt 1911 22LR With Rail 2245705
[2245705]
$394.00
by Bryce D Date Added: Tuesday 05 February, 2013
This is a great pistol, incredibly fun to shoot. I was absolutely stunned by how accurate it was right out of the hard case; I was shooting ~2.5 - 2.0" groups at about 15 yards the first time I used it, and I'm no competitive shooter. I don't think I'm even going to have to adjust the sights. The gun has great solidity and "heft" about it; it really does feel like a "real" .45 ACP 1911.

Something to be aware of that's a mild annoyance on this firearm (and really this is just endemic to all 1911 style guns chambered for .22 LR) is that you can't dry fire it or you risk breaking the firing pin. Thus, every single time you rack the slide (safety checking it, cleaning it, whatever), you must manually lower the hammer. Due to the grip safety, this requires crossing your other hand over the hammer and gently lowering it while you squeeze the trigger. This is a very, very minor issue, but just be aware of it if you're someone who likes to sit there compulsively racking and dry firing your pistols while watching TV or something.

On that note, the slide racks nice and smooth, there's no "slop" or play on mine. The trigger pulls nice and crisp as well, with no grittiness or jerkiness. I've been feeding it Remington Golden Bullet and Remington Target ammo like it's going out of style and thus far no failures whatsoever. My sole complaint (and it's really not even an issue with the gun itself) is that it comes absolutely DRENCHED in oil, including the magazine, and it's a bit of a PITA to get it all cleaned up and ready to go. Once that's done though, you're in for a treat. Stay safe.
