Browning Expands 1911-22 Line

Smaller incarnations of full-size guns aren’t necessarily a recent phenomenon-nor are full-size models that have been chambered in substantially smaller calibers. Rimfire versions of service revolvers and semi-automatics have always been popular for training and plinking purposes, and conversion kits have made it easy for target shooters to turn select models into .22 caliber pistols with relative ease. A few years ago, Browning took the concept to a different level, though, with the release of its miniaturized 1911-22.

The 1911-22 has been a success for Browning-so much so that the company has taken strides to significantly expand the line. A selection of new variants should hit the market at some point in 2014-including polymer framed versions and a model with a full-on accessory rail.
