Proven design with a few modern touches. The Browning 1911-22 isn't a full size 1911 with a barrel conversion kit. It's built to 85% of the scale of John M. Browning's original 1911 pistol in 45 ACP. Designed with a sense of duty and precision, and copiously tested to ensure accuracy, function, and the feel you should expect from a pistol bearing the Browning name. This model is about as modern as you can get, made with lightweight composite materials, a 1913 Picatinny accessory rail, skeletonized and lengthened components for light weight and better ergonomics.
