GSG 1911-22

I'm thinking about adding a GSG 1911-22 to my "under a thousand" gun collection. I know a guy who bought two and he says he loves them and that's about all he shoots anymore. I have read so many conflicting reviews. Do any of you guys have any direct experience with the GSG or the Sig GSG? If it only runs on CCIs, I can buy Tulammo 9mm for just a few cents a round more.
A Chiappa M9-22 is also a potential candidate.

I have one and I have to say mine has been reliable out of the box. I've used CCI, Federal and Winchesters and had very few failures. It's a very fun shooter and if you can get one for cheap I would go for it.

Now the issues: The finish of the slide is very weak. After a couple hundred rounds I can see the finish coming off the edges. The slide stop notch on mine is peening. Not sure what causes it. From other reviews they say that the guide rod breaks so I replaced mine with a stainless steel version.

Thanks for the reply. I still have one of these on the radar. Mostly for my son to shoot. I got offered a Interarms Walther PPK/s w/ 20 rounds through it. I had to buy it.

Had the sig version and it was a great shooter, but would only take the mini mags, the bulk stuff wouldn't cycle in it. Every one is different, but my m&p 22's and the new compact one eat anything... as does the colt 1911-22, for a few more dollars, get the colt. I know they are all walther guns, but there is a difference for sure.

My GSG 1911-22 runs great on anything I feed it. It is ultra relainle. Well over 3,000 rounds through it now and I love it. It is NOT stock; not by any means. I have put all the CW Performance upgrades on it that they make and it is way more accurate than I am now. So the finish wears off...yep, sure does. So I just bought some high heat engine paint and the thing has now been 1. Cast Aluminum, 2. Flat Black, and now 3. Silver with a black slide. It is a fun pistol and I like tinkering with it. 80% of the parts are interchangeable with regular 1911 parts. Mine has easily paid for itself in ammo savings while giving me a 1911 trigger and a decent trainer.
