Browning 1911-22 Pistol Review
Browning re-engineered the 1911 to optimize the 22 LR Caliber and dropped the size down to 85% of the original Government Model. Very reliable and fun to shoot with the classic 1911 design.
***All shooting was performed at a professional range following all safety protocols

Looks great, but…
has Sootch ever met a gun he didn’t like?
He has stated numerous time that, he doesn’t bring to the channel, junky products or products he wouldn’t personally own. Have you ever seen him do a review of a Hi Point???
He said in another video that he only reviews firearms he likes. There are just too many good firearms. He has no time or patience to review crappy ones.
He doesn’t review guns he has a negative opinion of.
Depends if a payment is received lol
The Wildey Magnum that blew up in his hand?
Just makes you wonder that if Browning is able to make a 1911 in .22 and .380 why not a 45
Because today’s “touch screen” crown can’t handle a .45 ACP
@Happy Froggy They don’t handle a 45 when 9 does everything 45 can with an extra 10 rounds
One complaint on mine: If you even breath on the magazine release button, it releases. Not good. Will release in your pocket, even in a holster.
Like to see 1911 380, can’t find them in California due to laws
@N F same in england and scotland unless browning decides to make one with 12 inch barrel
Was just looking up 22 1911 videos last night lmao thank you sir
600 dollars is not a value oriented Gun.
@MVia No. It depends on the alternative options and/or extra features. And none of that makes this a value oriented gun.
@That Dude like I said, price is relative to the buyer.
A $600 pistol if well made is not out of many people budgets.
This is a well made pistol.
If you don’t like it or its price, don’t buy it
@MVia – Then you’re destroying the concept of ‘budget model’. If anything, a budget pistol is relative to the price of other pistols in its same category (which is somewhat constant), not relative to the range of funds of buyers (whose variance is infinite).
Case in point, I can afford just about any gun I’m interested in, but there are many I don’t buy because they’re not a good value. Or better yet – anyone can afford just about anything a McDonald sells, but only a handful of items make it onto their ‘Value Menu’. At this point it’s not a gun issue, but a matter of objectivity. Price being infinitely relative comes off as some postmodernist or pseudo-socialist demagoguery.
You can even flip it the other way around. a Boeing 747 for $1 million is way out of my budget, but would still be great value while not being a budget model within the category of airplanes. Anyway, this has nothing to do with the original coImment at this point. I just found the concept interesting.
$429 at CDNN
@Mike Williams Colt Walther 1911 is only $325
Everybody always scratches the gun putting the slide stop back in. These are great little pistols. Great video. 🇺🇸
Yeah … when you see the wear groove from people doing that , they call it the ‘ idiot mark ‘ lol 😂 I have to laugh because the first time I took down a 1911 , I did it !
In the 1970s , I was fortunate to be able to find an incredible deal on brand new Browning Hi-Powers , from Belgium yet , in beautiful hardwood cases , I like this 1911 plinker
Life was good in the 70’s…found a Colt MK IV Series 70 and the Colt .22 Conversion Kit to go with it…still have both.
You’re the man Sootch! Love from a Carolina boy, born and bred
I bought one for my wife as a new shooter. She took her first introduction class and received the gun as a gift, I thought she was going to cry for joy. We have shot all brands of ammunition without any problem,. I’ve had a lot of fun shooting this gun also. Thanks for making the video. Love your information videos.
My dad just picked one up. I haven’t shot it, but it had a very nice fit and finish!
It’s been on my list for a few years now the gun stores are empty.
Brother, my gun shop has a compact browning from the early days..I want it sooo bad, but don’t have the money, Yet ! 😢. ❤️🇺🇸👍. Yes, a compact 22lr
Love mine. Very Nice pistol and a joy to shoot at the range. FYI, the manual says not to dry fire it as doing so will cause damage.
Have had mine for quit a few years. Great little pistol, love shooting it.
Me : this is fantastic.
may as well just go cry in a corner
JD Tackett hold up 230$ that’s insane. Is it a full size?
Gavin M it’s the same size as the Sig 1911-22 which I think Don shows in comparison so it’s close but not quite a full size 1911 I believe 😉
Yeah I’m with you price is just like off the chart
Greg Schroer I could get a new sig p320 for 30$ more. That’s crazy. I could get 2 Turkish real 1911 for the price of 1 mini 22 1911
Colt Walther 1911 is only $325
I Like It, an Now I Want one! Thanks for the share 👍
I have one of their 380 versions and love it.
I’ve always wanted one since it came out, but its 500+.
Yes its a bit pricey for a 22lr plinker. I like my S&W M&P 22lr. For quite a bit less money.
That in the compact with Stingers, old person conceal carry.
I have two of the black label models, I bought one for my daughter and one for me. Good thought but my wife took mine so have ordered another one.these browning pistols are excellent and very accurate.
I bought one and it’s a plinker for sure, but it works flawlessly. The only complaint is the plastic spring guide, but that can be upgraded.
Where would you get the upgrade?
Alan Schaub – Brownells should have them
bannanapancake Thank you!
