Ok, so 1,911 times 0.85 is… Carry the one…
Browning supplied several of its new 1911-22 models for Media Day at the range during SHOT Show 2012.
Yes, this handy little .22 looks just like a full size 1911 fresh out of a one way Wonka TV trip, but it’s far more than a plinker that only looks like its big brother.
The 1911-22 is in fact a scaled down 1911 inside and out. 85% scale to be exact. It’s identical operation to a 1911 with the exception of the lockup of the barrel. The .22 round does not need a tilting lock breech so this pistol is a blowback design.
Oh, and it’s a hoot to fire.
