Not satisfied with a simple .22lr conversion kit, Browning Arms Co has designed an 85% scale version of the legendary 1911 in the .22lr rimfire cartridge. Made to replicate the early design that served through 2 world wars and even up until later military engagements, the Browning Medallion 1911-22 is a faithful reproduction of the iconic military sidearm. Featuring a single action style trigger with manual thumb safety, grip safety, and low profile military style sights lends to the Browning medallion 1911-22 being quite an accurate little gun. Being an 85% size replica of the full size 1911, the 1911-22 is perfect for smaller hands or young shooters, and even though its a blowback pistol it has very little recoil is a fantastic gun to learn firearms basics on. The Browning medallion 1911-22 has an alloy frame, machined aluminum slide and is coated in a matte blue finish for protection from scratching.
