Default Browning 1911-22

I ordered one of these pistols on Friday. I'm getting the standard model with wood grips.
I also got 2 extra magazines. I didn't want the compact model.

They sure are a cute little gun. Friend of mine had a Llama .22 back in the 1980's that was a similar size (only with a vent rib!) and it was a blast to shoot. The Browning should be even better!

The pistol arrived at the dealers store today and I got to handle one for the first time. It sure is light and small; but, fits in my
hand very well. I get to bring it home next Thursday and I've got range duty on Saturday so I'll get to put some rounds
downrange, then. I ordered 2 extra magazines and they arrived Tuesday. I'm looking forward to stripping it down and
figuring out what makes it tick.

The Browning 1911-22 came home today. I stripped it down and figured out how the magazine safety works and how to override it.
I wish it had regular slotted screws instead of the Allen screws to hold the grips on and for the price it would have been nice if
Browning had included an Allen tool to take the grips off. Also, for the price, it would have been nice if an extra magazine
was included.

Mine has been totally reliable, but it shoots high and to the right, very annoying!

I had range duty today. I shot about 3 boxes of assorted .22's through the 1911-22. It performed flawlessly and printed consistently about
1 inch high at 25 yards. I had a lot of fun spinning a hanging bowling pin around in circles. This little pistol is a keeper.

That's great for you...

I took the first one back because it shot so high and to the right. They said they would send it to Browning, but instead lost it! I complained so much, they took the first one back and gave me a second one.

Here's the target from the second one, (15 yards)



The hits in the bullseye are from my Woodsman I took with me, to make sure it's not "me", that's having a bad day. The high/right was the shots from the Browning same day/time/ammo.

I'm not sure what I'm going to do about it...

Elaine has both the Browning 1911-22 and the 1911-380. Same thing with hers at first. Seems to be getting better as it wears in.

It's VERY disappointing to me, seeing as how they cost so much!!!

The first one, shot even higher and further to the right...

My friend that lives on the ranch bought one for his son. It didnít impress me as being a accurate gun. My buckmark camper model would shoot much better than the 1911-22. Most rugers will too.
