Gun Review: The Browning 1911-22 Compact makes men into excitable boys

Like a lot of folks, I was, um, dubious about Browning’s little .22 LR contribution to the “Year of the 1911″.

As I’ve said before I tend to prefer my 1911s as John Moses Browning intended: in .45ACP. Unless a gun is properly re-engineered for a different cartridge, it just feels “off” to me. The Springfield EMP was the first such re-scaled pistol I liked, with everything shrunk to about 85 percent of the size of the original M1911 in order to accommodate either a 9mm or .40 S&W cartridge.

The Browning 1911-22 Compact is another such gun. It honestly surprised me to discover that this is so. But I’m getting ahead of myself.
