You buy gun now! comments Travis Leibold says: August 16, 2011 at 18:55 Haha! Will this gun “love you long time” as well? Reply ScottA says: August 16, 2011 at 20:01 GSG 1911-22. Same cheap ammo in a prettier gun*. Not to mention apparently everyone who has one loves it. I’m very partial to 1911’s Reply 2Wheeled says: August 16, 2011 at 21:19 Love my GSG-1911, I just need more mags… Why does every .22 only come with ONE mag??? Reply Scott.a says: August 16, 2011 at 22:14 Why does every .22 only come with ONE mag??? It’s a conspiracy! I just bought a GSG 1911 that I’m picking up tomorrow. It’s my first real* gun and figured it’d be nice to get something I can put 500 rounds downrange without it costing an arm and a leg. *non air rifles Reply Axess Denyd says: August 17, 2011 at 13:25 Beretta Neos comes with two mags. Or it did when I bought one a few years ago. Reply sdog says: August 16, 2011 at 22:16 ruger 22/45 comes with 2 mags Reply Cj Phillips says: March 22, 2012 at 18:58 This thing is probably junk, if the chiappa 1911 is any indicator to chiappa’s quality control. I had 2 GSG 1911’s, and both had the slide split open on the left of the rear dovetail under 600 rounds. Got my money back after the second one split. Next time I’m getting a Ruger. Reply Hillbilly says: September 2, 2012 at 22:07 Bought one today. Very pretty. Too bad it doesn’t work. Fails to feed, fails to eject, hammer follows slide down, slide doesn’t lock back after last round, assembly instructions in manual wrong. Real junk. Will try different ammo, delude myself it just needs to “beak in” and then get rid of it. Reply LJ says: April 18, 2013 at 17:24 JUNK. I bought one February 22. JUNK. Sent it in the following Tuesday for repairs.(failure to feed, JUNK failure to extract, JUNK sticking action, JUNK last round slide lock not working, JUNK when the last round lock open did work, there was still a round in the mag.) JUNK. Recieved it back march 14th. JUNK (starting to get a theme here??) JUNK. Sent in again for all the same problems April 11th. JUNK. I’ll bet that poor woman’s ear was bleeding by the time i got off the phone with her. JUNK. They offer the possibility of sending a SAA 1873 22 instead, I’m hoping they do and I’m hoping it works a hell of alot better than the JUNK M9-22. JUNK.

Reply Barry Brand says: October 17, 2014 at 18:53 I know this is an old post, but this weapon M9-22 requires a HV 22 cal. with a muzzle velocity of 1100 FPS. minimum. The first time I tried mine I used a standard velocity 22 (1060 FPS) and it would not auto load properly (sounds like the same problem you had). A fellow shooter gave me some HV .22 to try (1300 FPS). It fired perfectly without a miss. I guess if the instructions say use a HV bullet with a minimum velocity of 1100 FPS you should do as it says. Good gun with the proper ammo used. Very accurate at 25 yards. Reply Dr. Dave Palmer says: September 6, 2015 at 11:15 Geez. I guess my experience was better than most. My M-9 worked just great !! Smooth trigger and excellent consistency in impact point. Sweet to the max. There’s a “but.” But, when I was swapping grips, a small wire spring dropped out and now the trigger is DOA. So, the little guy is on its way back to Daddy Chiappa, with a prepaid mailing label. We’ll see how it goes. As I’m waiting, I just bought a SECOND one, from Bud’s, for about $158, delivered. Yup. It’s a disease. Reply James says: March 1, 2017 at 21:25 Straight junk, bought one of these and have had problems with it ever since, I’ve about had it with this m9-22 that Chiappa makes. I’ve had it sent in twice for repairs and it’s going back for repairs for the third time in 2 months of sending and receiving it.
