Browning 1911-22 .22 Pistol

    Browning has introduced a .22 pistol patterned after the 1911. It is about 80% of the size of a regular 1911 (see photo below). It will be available in two sizes, a full-size and a compact.

    Caliber .22 LR
    Capacity 10+1 rounds
    Finish Blue
    Grip plastic
    Barrel 4.25″ (Full size) or 3.6″ (Compact)
    Weight 15.5 oz (full size)
    Safety Grip and thumb
    MSRP (Price) $599

    The price intrigues me. It is nearly twice the retail of the GSG 1911 and much higher than the Colt / Umarex 1911.
