|Purchased this pistol, hoping to have an affordable weapon to practice at the range with. After firing approximately 400 rounds of CCI .22 Tactical through the pistol, I can honestly report that every other round was either a fail to feed or stovepipe. Be advised: this weapon should never be considered suitable for any kind of personal or home defense. It is simply so unreliable and untrustworthy that it should be removed from the market. In summary, the Chiappa 1911-22 is a loathsome piece of junk.
If you are looking for a 1911-style .22 pistol, take a look at the Ruger 22/45. It is far superior to the GSG and Sig, and is much, much better than the Chiappa.
