I paid $360 otd @ Turners.

Thanks but the rest of us up north dont have a Turners on every corner. And I would imagine if you didnt have one there would be few other options. $420 otd is better than nothing at this point......

^I had thought about selling my Buckmark to fund a GSG 1911. After reading about some of the issues and the cast zinc frame, i decided against it. I think your going to be glad you went with the Buckmark.

Probably. If they are anything like Ruger Mark's, then I'll be really happy.

The lock that comes with them are not cali legal. So having to buy another on is normal procedure. The fact they tried to take the lock that came with it is BS however.

On another note, when your buying a 300-500 dollar gun, really whats $6 for a lock? I know we can argue it all day long, its roughly 125 rounds of .22.... :)

I got mine yesterday and went straight to the range. Put about 150 rounds through it of Federal red box, Winchester 333 pack, and Remington bulk packs. Not a single failure to fire or failure to eject. Wow..

Good to hear! Deposit down, just waiting for another batch to be shipped I guess. Anyone hear when that will be?

I shot mine on this weekend. Had a few FTF and FTE but nothing serious. Just part of the break in...It was a bad *** little gun and very accurate. Im very impressed and happy with my purchase..

Just picked up my gsg yesterday. Planning to shoot it later today. I cleaned it yesterday, but I noticed that while I was cleaning the slide the black coloring started to wear off (on the inside of the rails). Is this normal?

I just bought one of these. It was $399. I should have shopped around on price.

It looks awesome. The safety is lame and the trigger pull is a little rough. But it is supposed to be the same weight as a 1911 in .45 ACP. Plus some of the parts are compatible with other 1911's.

I can't wait to get it. Seems like it will be a lot of fun. Plus a lot cheaper to shoot then my .44 mag, .45 acp, and 9mm. And.... maybe, just maybe, I can get the old lady to finally try a pistol. All she shoots now is my 10/22 and is afraid of the Berretta. So hopefully this will be the 'gateway drug' (for lack of a better expression).

Yes I got mine out of jail yesterday. Four day weekend coming up so I am gonna wring it out. Can't wait. Next on the list of 'gotta-have's' is a Buckmark. Thank G@D for the one gun a month, or I would be broke.

So I stripped it, wiped it down and lubed it. It's really a good looking gun, but did they have to do the white job to all the lettering; it reads like a novel. Sigh... Maybe I will do the FDE job to it once I put some rounds through it.

Let us know how it shoots.


This is the most excited I have been about a gun buy in a long time. Don't get me wrong, I like all my guns. But this is the first time the 10-day is really hurting.

Ran 200 rounds of CCI mini mags yesterday, flawless! This is the first .22lr I've shot and my first gun! Shoots pretty well (at 7 yards) and cheap to shoot! I look forward to practicing with it often.


EDIT: A few issues - The finish along the slides has pretty much already come off (after one visit to the range)...is this normal? The magazine it came with allows me to get in 11 rounds, but when you try to rack it with 11 rounds the gun jams and you have to rack it twice. So, it doesn't let you shoot 11. I guess I just have to pay closer attention to the round count...it's just a small issue.

If you can get your hands on them, this is the price at LGSs. I would rather pay $40 - $50 more than have to drive an hour + to/from Turners anyway. I put mine in jail yesterday and will pick it up on the 9th.

The cost of the magazines is a real bummer on this thing though. Trying to find some at a reasonable price is becoming a chore.

$299 @ Turners is what I paid. 20min drive.Worth it :cool:

$299 is a pretty good deal. Comes out to, $350 or $350 OTD. Not bad at all.

I did pay a bit more than that, little bummed about it, but that is ok. The plus side for me is my LGS is only five mintues from my house and I do not have to spend 45+ minutes (each way) drive to Turners... twice... One to purchase and to pickup.

(Just trying to make myself ok with it.) :)

I took a look at a GSG 1911 today. I noticed that racking the slide it felt a little gritty. Also, if I gripped the slide I could wiggle it little bit. Is this normal?

BTW, if it makes you feel better they were asking 375 for it up here in Norcal. :(

As will all 1911s (or all pistols??) the slide movement will become smoother the more rounds go through it. The first time I racked mine it was stiff and was the exact opposite of "smooth", more like jerk, jerk, jerk, then movement, a real non fluid movement if that makes sense. Not sure about the wiggle. Mine has upgrades aimed at keeping it a "tight" fit to maintain some tight accuracy.

and I got mine in norcal, $$+tax+dros for under 4 OTD. :D

Just curious, where did you get yours. I went to Target Masters yesterday and the guy said he just sold one. I wanted to check it out in person. He didn't remember the selling price.

I took my wife to the range for the first time and we rented a Glock. I quickly decided she would never learn to shoot with a gun she's afraid of. So, I bought a Ruger 22/45. After she has some experience we'll step up to a larger caliber gun.

Well, a mini review and observations after my first range trip.

puRe59- yea the slide rails on the frame are silvery after 350 rounds the first time out. I can also jam 11 rounds in but it does not feed the second round so I stopped jamming that last round in.

japbeercow- The slide on mine felt not so much a rough 'gritty' but but more a 1000 grit with oil feeling. That has past now that I have shot it and it is smoother.

Well, I shot it first at 7 yards to see how it prints. It came with the high front sight blade and shot about 2.5" low. I put the medium on using the supplied tiny hex wrench and it printed about 2" high with a 12 o'clock hold. With a 6 o'clock hold, it was 1/2 inch high. I shot some standard velocity CCI and Wolf target and they did not cycle. So I switched to a brick of Winchester Wildcat. (I also shot some Winchester 'High-Velocity' silver box but it would not eject). After a couple of FTEs it ran the next 200 rounds with no issues and printed sometimes slightly better, sometimes a little worse than the photo below. It tended to throw the first round high or low as well. Not bad really. I then ran 50 rounds of CCI Blazer flawlessly though it, but the groups were slightly larger than the Wildcat.
I then took it over to the steel targets for another 100 rounds of fun. The little tink sounds were very satisfying at the longer distances, 30+ yards (and yes I wear electronic muffs).

At about the half way point I did drop a few drops of oil on the rails through the ejection port.

Break-down for cleaning was a simple affair and while it was dirty, it wiped down quickly and the barrel came clean after a few patches. I used a little CLP and high-temp wheel bearing grease on the slide, as I had before shooting it. The slide rails are silvery now and it racks smoothly.

One negative- the magazine. While the gun handling mimics the ergonomics of the 1911, the magazine nubs that compress the spring are the worst of the 4 .22 handguns I own. You can see them below; a pain in the arce.

Sounds like a good shooter Tzvia and the target shows as much. What were the best shooting rounds of your trials?

Got mine today.

First impressions.....

Well, I too can stuff an 11th round in the magazine it came with. I don't know what to do about this? The magazine came with the gun from the factory and was sold to me in California.

The gun feels great in my hands. It cycles flawlessly.

Now the not so good. Mine shoots high and to the right. It groups good... but still high and to the right. I have never had to adjust sights before on a pistol. So I am not sure if I should take it to someone or not? I had two other people shoot my gun and both shot the same as me, high and to the right.

I guess one thing I should take into consideration first is the trigger. It is a very heavy pull. It feels gritty too. So I guess I will need to give it a thorough bath first and see if I get on target.

I will also have to check on some website on how to improve the trigger.

Over all, I still love the gun. Fun to shoot.

None of the standard velocity would cycle correctly- Wolf target, CCI standard and subsonic, Aguila target.

Of the 3 'high velocity' I shot, Winchester XPERT did not cycle one out of every 2 or 3. Winchester Wildcat shot the best consistently, with CCI Blazer almost as tight. Being that Blazer shoots well in my other .22s, I guess I will stick with it. I was out of Federal Bulk, but as my Sig does not feed the stuff, I don't feel like buying it.

(In case anyone was wondering what kind of group is covered by the gun in my photo, it's a group with my Sig Mosquito.)

erik- mine shot low and slightly right- and had the high front sight post installed. Take a look- it comes with 3 front sight blades and a tiny hex wrench to remove and install the others. If it has the medium or low blade installed, swap it out for the high blade. Be careful not to over-tighten the little screw on the front sight as it's only plastic. As for wind-age, loosen the rear sight and move it opposite the direction of error (left) a tiny amount and then re-tighten.

As for the trigger, I cleaned my gun and lubed the trigger bow before shooting, using some gun oil and a little synthetic wheel bearing grease (great stuff, under 10 bucks for a tub that will last many years). The grease also smoothed the slide. It's not a target trigger, but as I shot mine it smoothed a bit and became quite easy to manage, not really gritty at all.

Like Erik, I picked mine up today as well. Unfortunately, I will not be able to make the range trip until tomorrow.

This is my first 1911 design, so here are my thoughts/first impressions as I was messing around with it.

As I take it out of the plastic box, I notice it feels heavy for a 22; Solid and substantial, unline the mosquito my wife has. Very nice looking pistol of metal and wood. Very nice!

Decided to take it apart and clean and inspect it, but I have never taken apart a 1911 before. Browse manual and follow the first few steps: Slide back a bit, remove slide release, remove barrel pin, unscrew hex screw on opposite site. So far so good... Next, remove slide... hmmm... It says to push it forward, but it just won't go... Little extra force and finally got it. Cool, nothing broken or scratched. Spring and guide come out, clean it, apply some grease, inspect barrel. Sweet! More grease and put it all back together by reversing the steps of takedown.

I figured out how people get the idiot mark and will try to avoid the same badge of honor, though I am sure it is just a matter of time.

I am excited to take it out to the range and see how it shoots tomorrow and will check back in after I get back!

Edit: I pulled it back out of the box to see about the 11 round thing. I can easily put 11 rounds in the magazine without even forcing the round in. Looks like the magazine move a little more beyond that, though, round #12 isn't going to happen.

Same here. I have shot a few 1911's but never owned or stripped or cleaned one.
As I take it out of the plastic box, I notice it feels heavy for a 22; Solid and substantial, unline the mosquito my wife has. Very nice looking pistol of metal and wood. Very nice!

It is a very solid gun. From what I understand, a few of the parts are interchangeable with other 1911's.

Browse manual and follow the first few steps: Slide back a bit, remove slide release, remove barrel pin, unscrew hex screw on opposite site. So far so good... Next, remove slide... hmmm...

I am paranoid about the idiot mark. I have heard of it as well. I will be watching lots of videos on this.

You will have tons of fun.

I will be giving this a try. I think I will see if a good bath helps smooth out the trigger. I would hate to make an adjustment and find out the heavy trigger pull was the problem.

I was shooting CCI today without one single issue. I had ZERO fail to feed, ZERO ejection, ZERO fail to fire issues. It was flawless.

Went out to my range to give the GSG a try. Brought a 325 pack of Federal Match, 525 federal bulk and 300 CCIs.

I had FTF with the Federal bulks, not one single issue on the CCIs or the Federal Match. Total roiunds fired:

150 Federal Bulk
325 Federal Match
300 CCIs

I would not have any issues continuing to feed this pistol federal bulks for plinking. HAd an occasional flyer, but still plenty accurate and fun.

On my first few loads I found the pistol was shooting low and to the right. I changed the front sight to the #2 sight and then it was shooting high right. I adjested the rear sight to pull my onto center and started using 6 O' clock hold and was pretty much on target' a little low; but I will have to adjust for this I guess.

Overall I am very happy with the GSG1911! Seems to be very reliable and is a lot of fun to shoot. I am not so happy with the front sights though. There is to much of a jump between the #3 and #2 sight, I need something just in between those two. :)

I wonder if the standard 1911 sights fit the GSG1911? I am going to have to do something and I do not really want to file the front #3 sight down.

Now after approx 2800 rounds through my GSG, I've noticed that CCI Blazer shoots perfectly through the gun, but it's also the dirtiest. I have a lot more crap to clear out of the barrel after shooting a few hundred rounds of of the CCI Blazer.

For the price, I prefer shooting Federal value pack RED box as that runs flawless through my gun and it runs pretty clean (as clean as CCI Mini Mags). I wonder if it's just the lead nose bullets that make the barrel so dirty, or the waxy cover on top of the bullets.



Mine shoots high and to the right. It groups good... but still high and to the right.

Your's, mine, and many other people's GSG does this. But I only notice it high right when I'm shooting past 15 yards.

Yes, adjusting your sights is the first thing to do. But the other thing to do, that most people haven't done yet, is to get a better & tighter barrel bushing. Not another one from ATI, but an aftermarket one and fit it to the gun (if it needs fitting). I'm running an EGW prefit match barrel bushing on my GSG, and it's a tight fit and I had to do some filing to make it fit the slide properly, but now my groupings are very tight at 20 yards and dead center.

I will check out the barrel bushing option.


What about the tigger pull? Anyone done a tigger job on theirs? Mine seems really heavy (or tight).

Like most handguns, a good trigger job helps this pistol a whole lot. However, I would not recommend doing a trigger job on this one, unless you are real familiar with working on the 1911. If you are familiar with the 1911 parts (80 Series), then this handgun is almost exactly the same.

I removed the 80 series parts, and converted mine to work just like the 70 series 1911, and the trigger is now a very crisp 3 pounds. This trigger job is as easy to do as any 1911 in .45ACP. The article on my website covers some good upgrades for this handgun. I also removed the "extra parts" on the mainspring housing, and replaced the front bushing with a steel part.

This GSG 1911 is now one of my favorite handguns.

Even though I was going to get a great deal @ Turners for $299. I cancelled the order. Read to many things that made me pass. Also factor in Turners said the wait period for 2nd batch was going to be 4wks. That's after I waited this long. That's a two month wait! They gladly refunded my money after making me wait for 30min.

There's no need to purchase a barrel bushing. Read this article on my website. You can get the importer to send you a new steel bushing for free.

They have a new steel replacement part that you should use. Every part on the slide is lightened to the extreme. Even the sights are made of Delron to cut the weight. That's very important when it comes to making ANY 1911 reliable when using .22 rimfire ammo.

Just picked mine up yesterday. I like the wood grips, but it looks like unfinished wood. What can I do to protect the wood, use oil, lacquer, shellac?

The CA approved version (German Sport Gun GSG-1911CA) has not been released yet.
ATI is estimating a Q3 2011 release time frame.

The GSG-1911 that is currently available is not legal in CA due to it having a threaded barrel, which makes it an assault weapon under CA laws.


I believe Turner's was taking pre-orders for the GSG-1911CA for around $350.

It is now available. I was very close to putting $$ on one TODAY. Felt nice in the hand.

Same here, but I'll be at work when my DROS is up, so I've gotta wait until Tuesday. :facepalm:BAH! I ordered magazines(about $30 each) last week from www.joeboboutfitters.com, no tax and free shipping for orders over $90. Shipped fast too!

It's a painful 10(11 for me) days waiting for the gsg. The gf, work, and Battlefield 3 will have to hold me over.

This gun shoots like a champ. 1000 rds. through it so far. Had 3 ftf with cheap bulk ammo, and only when I first start shooting. No problems with CCI ammo. I keep my baby clean, clean it after every trip to the range.

When purchasing new does it come with a case? Saw a review on youtube that had a black hard case with it so just wondering.

It does come with a case but when I opened mine it had a really bad smell to it so I just put the case in the closet and use a different one for transport.
