SIG 1911-22 vs. Browning 1911-22 A1 :: Photo Comparison

Top: Browning // Bottom: SIG
A quick look at two 1911 pattern guns chambered in .22LR.
Browning in Hand
The Browning 1911-22 A1 is 7/8th the size of normal 5" 1911 complete with the thumb and grip safety. Overall the gun is true to a 1911-A1 except for size. The trigger is nothing to write home about, being heavy and full of slop, but this is not a fine tuned pistol. The size is usable for my large hands and would be darn near perfect for my wife or children.
SIG in Hand
The SIG 1911-22 is 1:1 scale to it's .45ACP big brother. It's weights is similar as well as it's overall appearance and function. The front and rear sights are driftable and of the three-dot variety. If you're looking for a .22LR trainer; I'd give the SIG 1911-22 a hard look.

    1. I'm seriously thinking of also buying the Browning for my wife who has some carpal/arthritis in her hands - she's held the Browning & likes it but hasn't held the Sig - I see the Browning is quite a bit lighter (16 vs 34oz empty)- I don't really mind spending the money if it's a quality piece (reviews seem to indicate it is) but if something else was out there that was better for the money...
