I HAD one. It was a piece of junk. The front sights fell off. I couldn't get through a mag with out some issue.

I now have a Colt/Umarex 1911 .22lr for plinking, and it's well worth the money. Spend the extra money and get something that you will enjoy shooting, not something that will frustrate you.

Haven't had one myself, but a shooting buddy has/had one. Just an awful experience with several issues and one trip back to ??? for repair. No improvement.

I had one and loved it.

It would pretty much only shoot Remington Yellow Jackets though. Everybody said CCI Mini Mags but they would not even chamber under force. The bulk Federal HP's and Remington 555's would work pretty good but still stovepipe about once every few mags. I also had one magazine that was better than the other.

The only reason I sold it was to get money for my Regent. I wish I still had it actually.

Purchased one in January. Sent back to manufacturer in February because of a cracked slide (fired only Federal Bulk!). Over 30 days later, a replacement firearm arrived. Sent replacement firearm back after 4 days because of poor workmanship quality and not the firearm offered as a replacement (Discussed upgrading sights to fiber optic for my problems). It has has been over 30 days since I sent the replacement back. No word on when the next production firearms will arrive to get a replacement (to my replacement). No answers from customer service or the shop manager.

Total days with a Chiappa 1911-22 in my physical possession: 34 days.
Total days without: 64 days and counting...

I asked for a full refund at this point.

A guy hands one over to shoot, while laughing at the trigger. The thing had like a two inch pull lol. The slide released when putting in mag too. Both times. It kinda had a good heft thou

You know what they say about Chiappa...Don't buy them.

I would go for the gsg. Similar price range, but seems to be much less problematic.

I bought one (standard model ) fixed front sight. I have shot the heck out of it, no problems except last week with some Federal Auto Match. The Fed would not cycle well enough to load occasionaly, although it was ejecting. The same ammo, same day, would not run at all in my Bersa Thunder 22. Finished out the day with Blazers with no problems in either gun. I had bought a case of the stuff and it is a crap lot, auto match has always ran in both guns before.
Of my six semi pistols favorite is RIA 1911 9mm FS Tactical then Chiappa 1911-22. The long trigger pull was corrected early last year, Chiappa will mod the earlier ones for a charge.
