Are these models CA legal? need to brush up on the 22 pistol laws, i thought that since it was 22 it was ok, but it has a threaded barrel so i thought that made it a AW. Shoot me some info on this would you guys

Non threaded barrel CA. legal and on roster. I've had mine about a month now and have a blast shooting it. I already have 5 mags for it and have changed the MSH. I used the MSH that came out of my Springfield. I also lightly sanded and polished the slide and frame where they make contact this really smoothed out the slide action. I took off the wood grips and put black rubber grips on it. Now with the exception of the white lettering its all black and I call it my tactical 22 lol. Heres a bad pic (someday I will learn to take good pics).

No, not legal in CA. The CA version is not threaded and no fake suppressor.

Been looking at one.MSRP is $399.$395 doesn't seem like much of a "special".

For the central valley the retailers think MSRP on something new is "special"

Mine with wood grips, looking all 1911 traditional, shipped today from Buds Gun Shop. That's what I would recommend. They have the California compliant model marked out in their menu.

I love mine! Had some of the problems that you hear about (You can search for my review) but I put more rounds through it in one range trip than I do a month on my other pistols (and @ $20/brick how can you not? :D)

Here it is before the first shot:

Those black grips really make it looks nice.

Anyone know where to find a decent set of black grips w/o breaking the bank?

This gun is awesome! Shot over 700 rounds in about 2 hours. Had to stop because the gun was burning hot by then. In the beginning, I had 2 jams with bulk Remington ammo. After that, flawless. I also used some CCI AR Tactical, the bang feels smoother, hard to explain. So, I think I have broken her in nicely.

the one that comes with the threaded barrel and faux suppressor


My GSG 1911 is the 'tactical' model, and it came with a threaded barrel and faux suppressor.

However, I pinned the cap onto my barrel (while the barrel was out of the gun), thus making it a non-threaded barrel to where I could legally insert and use it in my GSG. The faux suppressor is junk and looks like crap. Not to mention the inner diameter is so much larger than the barrel (I can drop a .45 ACP round through it).

My GSG is really no different from everybody elses. Except that mine came with black grips (plastic), threaded barrel, fake can, and no 'CA' on the slide. It's also one of the earlier ones with the beefy guide rod so I've never had any issues with my gun.

Because $379 is the regular price...

Turners sale price was $319... that sale was about a month ago

The rep from Turner's that posts on the forums said they received a large shipment and will be running them in the weekly ad asap. I'm hoping for this friday.

Very Nice. I was considering another 45 but I realized I needed a .22 pistol. This model seems to meet my needs.

And last week my co worker and I went and bought a 22/45 and he got the GSG 1911 and they gave it to him for $319 but it wasn't even on sale, the sales guy gave it to him for that price.

Just got on the GSG 1911 train. Held out as long as I could but when I saw the local shot had it, it was a lost cause. Now I just have to wait a bit longer....
