BUY 1911-22 A1 Compact Gray Calif Compliant A Browning 1911-22 A1 Compact – California Compliant 10+1 .22 LR rimfire semi-auto has the classic looks of a genuine M1911 but is chambered in .22 LR and made with the best in modern technology.
This specific Browning 1911-22 A1 Compact – California Compliant model’s branding and existence appears to be a legal / marketing construct rather than a separate product when compared to the standard Browning 1911-22 A1 Compact. The 10+1 capacity, dimensions and features are the same. But having a separate branding gives positive reinforcement that this gun is available in California.
The frame is matte black. Its material is sturdy yet lightweight 7075 T6 alloy. You can get the slide in either anodized matte black or anodized gray. Both look great. Virtually everything else on the gun is matte black.
The standard Browning 1911-22 A1 Full Size – California Compliant is at 85% scale of the original .45 ACP M1911. Thus it has a 4 1/4” length barrel, 5 1/2” sight radius, 7 3/8” overall length and 15-ounce weight. In comparison, this compact model’s barrel, sight radius and overall length are about 5/8” shorter than the full-size version’s. Thus, the barrel is 3 5/8”, sight radius is 4 7/8” and overall length is 6 3/4”.
The slide is shorter too of course. Despite all this, between the full-size .22 LR and the compact .22 LR, weight savings is only an ounce, meaning weight comes in at 14 ounces. Still, that 5/8” (8.5%) shorter difference means easier concealment and therefore increased portability. BUY 1911-22 A1 Compact Gray Calif Compliant
