Umarex Colt 1911 22LR With Rail 2245705
[2245705]
$394.00
by Louis D Date Added: Thursday 28 February, 2013
Unfortunately my experience with this pistol was completely different than the other reviewers here. The gun ran CCI ammo OK, but Winchester and Federal would FTE over 50% of the time. And the magazine also had an issue. When the mag was inserted into the grip, the top round would kick up at an angle, and would jam against the top outside rim of the chamber when the slide was released. This would happen consistently with the mag being inserted with a reasonable amount of force, and I've never had this happen with any other .22 I've ever fired. To avoid this, the mag had to be loaded very delicately with minimal force every time, which takes a lot of the fun out of shooting and renders the pistol essentially useless for training. I sent the mag back to Umarex and asked for a new one (even emailed them pictures of the cocked round in the mag). After a month with about a dozen emails and 2 phone calls, I called a 3rd time and was told "oops, we sent your mag to the wrong customer." They sent it out again, without even an apology for their error and the excessive delays. And of course the new mag was just as bad as the original. I tried using the gun for a few more months and finally got tired of all the FTEs. Considered sending the gun itself back to Umarex, but didn't want to deal with their customer service again. Sold it for $150 less than I paid for it, and bought an M&P 22. The only positives I can mention are the pistol has a beautiful finish, has a rail system (which I like to have on all my pistols) while still having a nice sleek streamlined look, and is very accurate (when it doesn't jam). I'll therefore rate it 2 stars instead of 1, which is being generous.

Rating: 2 of 5 Stars! [2 of 5 Stars!]
