I was just on their website and the only 1911 they list is the .22LR with a MSRP of $600 (http://www.browning.com/products/catalog/firearms/itemdetails.asp?value=028B&cat_id=051&type_id=802&content=1911-22-a1-firearms&item=051802490). And, look at the picture; the .22LR is smaller than the .45ACP.

No sign of one in .45ACP so it looks like the one in this set will be a "One of A Kind" Browning 1911 .45ACP.

That's cool, a dedicated .22 for 1911 instead of messing with the conversion kit. I like it.

I wonder who is making the .45 ACP for Browning?

And, look at the picture; the .22LR is smaller than the .45ACP.

It is a scaled down version...it isn't full sized. The barrel is only 4" long and it only weighs 15 oz...that one is being imported

That's what I mean. It isn't a "1911". It's a "MINI" 1911; they should call it a 2011. And, I don't know about you but I don't think I would pay $600 for a "Mini" 1911 in .22LR even if it does say "Browning" on the side of it.

Yup, there is already a thread (http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/showthread.php?t=376418) about that one.

I'm really surprised that these Brownings are only at $10,000. From what I see on Browning's website this is the only 1911 they are going to make.

I watched brownings SHOT show video on this package. It seems like they claim credit for the M1911. oh, so the original design was Browning. Colt was contracted to mfg. and maybe add improvements to the design. sooo. Colt 100 yr anniversary at $83000+. interesting.
