Absolutely LOVE 1911s but I wanted something that wouldn%u2019t scare my mom off when I started to teach her to shoot, and this was the PERFECT gun! All the practicality of 1911 without the %u201Cbang%u201D of a .45. Plus the ammo%u2019s super cheap to shoot so we can train all day. Pure excellence if you ask me

I have owned this pistol 2 weeks and am having a rough start. About 300 rounds through it and have had about 3 dozen malfunctions. Failure to cycle and failure to feed. The magazine thumb assist was so sharp it cut my sons thumb deep. Walther was very good about sending two replacement magazines that had the sharp edges taken off. Going to try an aftermarket main spring as lots of owners say it really helps with cycling. I will also try more types of ammo to see if I can find one that will shoot a complete magazine. But overall, I personally would not purchase this gun again. I understand .22Lr can be finicky, so I will give it some time and work through the bugs. It is a nice heavy and good looking pistol.

Have yet to take it to the range, but delivery was timely. Wish it can with an extra mag. But fell in love with the feel, have large hands. Absolutely a beautiful weapon, well balanced. Very surprised for a 22 lr always been a big bore guy. I even have several friends impressed with it also and considering a purchase. I'll recommend this one max stars.

Great feel, great handling rimfire pistol. 1911 .22 at a 1:1 scale. Walther engineering is superb. Slide is incredibly smooth. Very pleased with this product and transaction. Don’t buy one - buy three.

First a word about budsgunshop.com: I've purchased my last 4 guns through them and couldn't be happier. They ship as fast as possible and keep in constant contact with you in regards to where your new baby is in the process. I've never received anything less than a perfect firearm from them and their prices are always better than what i've found elsewhere even after the transfer fee. The entire process is easy and i'll definitely shop them before anyone else for then next one.
The GUN (Walther Arms Colt 5170310 1911 Government Tribute .22 LR 5" 12 1): The all important question... would i purchase it again? Yes, no question... you won't regret it! That said, this is a true 4 out of 5 star gun... though it could have been a 5 but it would cost a little more (i'll explain).
Pros: Beautiful piece, definitely a real showpiece with the dusty olive. Cheap AMMO!! Even the good stuff isnt pricey at this level. Accurate sites out of the box. Easy breakdown and cleaning (search Walther Colt 1911 22lr on YouTube for factory video! Reliable (after break in!). Eats any ammo you throw at it.

Gun is excellent shooter, feels just like my 1911 Springfield. Super accurate, looks outstanding. Will not shoot cheap stuff, cycles with CCI, Thunderbolt, and Winchester target.
One of the white spots on rear site fell out first reload. Buying another, excellent shooter!
