Got this pistol after thinking about it for a while and when it was back in stock I grabbed one it is a awesome pistol exactly like a full size 1911 has good wait to it to make it feel like a quality gun and a makes shooting it so much fun it really is a solid built plinker that just works shot about 500 rounds first time on the range with some super cheap 22 rounds and some cci rounds both worked no feeding issues or eject issues really nice feel in the hand and also takes full size 1911 grips the ones it comes with are not wood but nice but wood grips imho make this gun look as good as it shoots. And this is my second gun bought from buds and service and shipping were excellent as always

I bought this as an affordable alternative for my wife to shoot my 1911’s without spending $1/rnd. It has all of the same controls, feel and features of my Colts & Kimbers. After a couple hundred rounds through it this past weekend, I determined that it’ll serve it’s intended purpose nicely. It’s very accurate at 60 feet and cycled perfectly with no feed issues. It seems to be built fairly well, with the exception of the thumb safety, which operates quite roughly, and it isn’t as finely crafted as higher end 1911’s. All-in-all, it will function as intended, an affordable training piece.

The 1911 is a nice weight similar to a 45 1911 which is why I wanted it. I am very happy with this auto except for one thing, the magazine is junk. I ordered a second factory mag with this 1911 and they are rated for 12 rounds, it is a single stack mag and anything over 7 rounds it tries to double stack and the gun jams. The magazines are thin sheet metal and I have the same issue with both mags.

I recommend this gun with the exception noted.

This is a well made gun and I love the fact that it is a full size hand gun . I noticed right out of the box this gun is very accurate . I am still breaking the gun in I have shot it 3 times and about 400 rounds through it . Probably took at least 15 magazines through it before it would run all the rounds cleanly . If you want save your finger some cuts on the magazine I would buy a speed loader asap .That's the only complaint I have with it . I think you will be happy with this gun.

Few more bells & whistles make this Walther tolerable, great gift and I think all parties were pleased.

It seems good for the money so far about 500 rounds through. I like firing it suppressed (thread adapter available) although it gets dirty quick and the slide starts to hang up a bit-- the chamber/slide fouls up as expected with 22. Found 2 extra mags at a price not too unreasonable about like glock mags.



It has slight differences to the 1911. I tried to fit a flat trigger but was unable. The geometry was different from standard. Lost a plunger spring and found that the standard plunger works you just don't use the front part because the slide stop does not have a detent.



The barrel is very thin upon inspection. I don't think it would have good thermal or otherwise stability. I haven't bench rested it to see the accuracy though. Overall good for the money.

When Buds pulled this 22 rimfire pistol in stock during the covid shortage, I picked up immediately. Buds did a great job shipping it quickly to my FFL. Thank you. The Walther Arms Colt Tribute 1911 in .22 is an exceptional pistol. Breaking the pistol down, I was amazed at how the procedure is almost exactly like a 1911 45 ACP. the barrel bushing, spring plug,, spring and take-down pin all resemble a standard 1911! Kudos to Walther/Umarex & Colt for such a great design. The barrel is stationary and it is a blow-back design instead of a locking breech. The slide is super light and super easy to rack. disappointed that the sights are plastic but they are dovetail and believe they can be swapped out. grip safety is a standard design. the slide lock is right-hand-only, which is fine, but it got stuck often. I disassembled and oiled the pistol to get ready for range time.

Even with COVID, I wanted to give it a good test fire and took it to the range with an entire brick of .22 rimfire. I shot lead high standard velocity federal, and federal high-velocity copper plated. Both functioned perfectly with enough power to eject the shell and load another from the 12 round magazine. Also, as many of you know, rimfire ammo is dirty and it's not a question of if a pistol will malfunction without a cleaning but when. The pistol was able to handle the entire 500 rounds without jamming or needing a cleaning which is great. It comes with a mag load which I never use, but with this pistol, I'd recommend it. I literally cut my thumb on the metal loading tab that allows you to pull down on the mag feeder to load another round.

As for accuracy, the pistol, with it's 5" barrel, and almost zero recoil is extremely accurate. The standard single action trigger on this pistol delivers and is exactly what you expect from something bearing the Colt name. in fact, I kept 300 rounds within a 3" group at 10 yards, and the remaining 200 rounds, I kept on the man-sized target at the full 50' of the indoor range. This pistol delivers on every level, for the price, it is one of the most accurate, reliable rimfire pistols I've shot. Being an almost exact copy of a 1911 makes it super comfortable to shoot. In fact, I enjoyed it so much, if Buds gets it in stock again, I"ll be picking up another one.

This gets my full endorsement as one of the best stock 22 rimfire pistols available.
