Chiappa 1911-22

Availability: Out of stock

- SKU: 191122

The M1911 is a single-action pistol that utilizes a short recoil operation and is traditionally chambered for the .45 ACP cartridge. It was formally adopted by the United States Army on March 29, 1911 and served as its official sidearm for nearly 75 years, proving its reliability and the soundness of its design. And despite its replacement by the Beretta M9, the M1911 continues to serve in many units to this day.

Decades later, Chiappa Firearms began work on the Chiappa 1911-22, and while it may not be in the same category as the M1911, this replica is ready to prove its worth all the same.

The Chiappa 1911-22 is a replica of John Browning's original design from over 100 years ago. It reproduces faithfully each of the components characteristic of the M1911, including the familiar placement of each of its fire controls. The major difference, however, is that the Chiappa 1911-22 is chambered for the .22 LR cartridge. As such, it is great for use as a training platform, considering the inexpensive initial cost of the pistol and the inexpensive costs associated with .22 LR ammunition.

The Chiappa 1911-22 is now available from Pick one up today for only $273.66.

Originally founded by Ezechiele Chiappa as Armi Sport in 1958, Chiappa Firearms is an Italian-owned and operated arms manufacturer based in Brescia, Italy. Bringing a wealth of knowledge from his work with a manufacturer in Valtrompia, Chiappa's natural technical abilities gave him the skills necessary to form his own company, a company that would produce only one pistol for its first four years before growing into the respected industrial corporation that it is today.

Today Chiappa Firearms is just one component of the Chiappa Group, the aforementioned industrial corporation that includes Armi Sport (replica firearms, target shooting and defense), Kimar (blank, signal and small-caliber firearms), ACP (laser training systems) and Costa (metal surface treatment). It is still family-owned and reliant upon innovative design work and modern manufacturing, two traits that Chiappa believes are key to providing the world with high-quality firearms like the Chiappa 1911-22.

As noted the Chiappa 1911-22 is a replica of the M1911 that is chambered for the .22 LR cartridge rather than the .45 ACP cartridge. Recently, these replicas have become more and more prevalent as their market continues to grow. Whether people are unable or unwilling to spend the steep initial investments that these replicas' counterparts beg, or they just prefer to train on a platform that will allow them to train at a much higher volume, they are turning to .22 LR replicas more often than not. Chiappa Firearms seems to have noticed this trend and responded with several .22 LR replicas in kind.

The Chiappa 1911-22 features a five-inch barrel (1:16 inch twist) alongside an overall length of approximately 8 1/2 inches – dimensions that are almost identical to the MIL-SPEC M1911. Though several models of the Chiappa 1911-22 exist, the model for sale today is the Standard model. As such, its matte blue alloy frame is joined by two-piece wood grips and other steel components that combine to give the pistol an overall weight of approximately two pounds. Moreover, it includes a fixed front sight with a standard combat rear sight as well as an ambidextrous thumb safety that resides in the same familiar position as it would on a MIL-SPEC M1911. Each Chiappa 1911-22 ships with a single 10-round magazine.
