Sig Sauer 1911-22 22LR at SHOT
Out of all the newest pistols coming out in 2011, Sig Sauer’s 1911-22 chambered in .22LR may be one of the most overlooked models. Sig’s 1911-22 .22LR is a full size 1911 at a very reasonable price. MSRP is only $399!
This model has rosewood grips, contrast sights, a black finish, and a SAO trigger.
I had the opportunity to handle the .22LR 1911 at SHOT on Tuesday and it feels absolutely outstanding in your hand. The weight is great and the trigger is really crisp – better than you’d expect. All that Sig needs now is a threaded barrel for this beauty so I can throw my AAC Prodigy on it!
Update 6-3-11 – We’ve got some updated coverage on this model on our blog and we have the 1911-22 in stock in our store. We’ve also got detailed photos and info on ordering extra 1911-22 magazines.
As it turns out, the 1911-22 barrel is already threaded from the factory. The pistol has a cap over the threading and you can use an extension adapter for a silencer / suppressor.
