Umarex 1911 Regent R100 and .22 Colt 1911

As previewed at SHOT Show 2011, on the centennial of John M. Browning's celebrated M1911 pistol, Umarex USA is offering up 3 .22-caliber versions of the 1911: the Colt Government 1911, the Colt 1911 Rail Gun and the Colt 1911 Gold Cup. Every model has a 5-inch barrel, 12-round magazine and drift-adjustable front and rear sights. Each .22-caliber 1911 is also engineered to use a fully-functioning thumb and grip safety, as well as the half-cock mechanism of the true .45-caliber 1911. The pistols have a starting MSRP at $399 and go up to $499, depending on the model.

In addition to the .22-caliber 1911s, Umarex is also offering .22-caliber versions of the Heckler & Koch MP5, designed to operate in the very same manner as the 9 mm version. The .22-caliber MP5 versions come with match grade precision barrels, imitation 3-lug flash suppressors, adjustable front and rear sights, and a rotating safety switch. It is available in either a 10- or 25-round magazine.

For additional information on the .22-caliber Colt 1911s, please visit the Umarex USA Colt rimfire website. For additional information on the MP5, please visit the Umarex USA H&K rimfire website.

I bought the Umarex Colt Government Model about 5 months ago. I love the thing! I had intended on buying the newer Ruger SR22 but after handling it I had second thoughts. After I got my hands on the Colt 1911 .22 I knew I had found my new plinker. So far it has eaten every type or brand of ammo I have fed it with no problems. Fantastic pistol for the 1911 lover on a budget. Only complaint is that it only comes with one magazine. Come on Umarex, sell it with two.

Clint - I had the same problem. I changed to premium ammo (Federal) and the problem went away. The cheap stuff didn't have enough kick to eject the brass. That's what worked for me. It's now a lot of fun to shoot. Good luck.

Have had the rail gun for about two weeks and love it. We have 2 GSG versions of the 22 cal 1911, one of which is a "1 in a 1000" the way it shoots and performs. This Colt licensed version is great. It's extremely well made and has proven to be absolutely reliable and shoots much more consistently than I do. Tons of fun for a reasonable price and the continued savings on ammo are icing on the cake. The "significant other" enjoys shooting the big centerfire 1911s but she loves this rail gun, she can shoot it for hours! We just might have to get the Gold Cup so we can both enjoy them. Walther and Umarex have brought a wonderful new pistol to the market place, enjoy. We're off to the range to burn some more 22s.

I went into Academy Sports and Outdoors yesterday ready to buy a Ruger 22/45 for my wife. I spotted the rail version of this Colt/Walther 1911-22 and snatched it up. Their price was $380 less $25 off this week, so I was out the door for $355 plus sales tax, almost $100 less than the MSRP. This is a very well made gun. I don't know yet if my wife will actually be getting it or not!
