Based on the legendary original Colt Government 1911, this .22 L.R. Pistol sports German quality & craftsmanship.
The dedicated .22 long rifle platform used for this Colt Government 1911 .22 Series is a new, licensed reproduction available in three rimfire variants-Government models 1911, 1911 Rail Gun, and 1911 Gold Cup.
All three Colt Government rimfire models are dedicated .22 L.R.s, but they’re engineered in true replica form with fully functioning thumb and grip safeties and the 1911′s authentic half-cock mechanism. Grips and sights can be interchanged with a skeleton trigger, combat-style sights, beavertail grip safety, extended thumb safety, and a commander-style hammer. The nickel-finished Gold Cup model has wood grips.
These new Colt .22 guns will be available through select distributors, local firearm dealers, and some national retailers beginning in November 2010. They will come with one 12-round magazine and retails will range from $399 to $450 depending on the model. Colt22rimfire.com
