Gun of the Week: Browning 1911-22
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. Browning took the concept to a different level, though, with the release of its miniaturized 1911-22.
It’s been several years since the venerable Browning Hi Power was imported by its original European manufacturer. Now the classic is being made by Springfield Armory right here in the United States—
at a surprisingly reasonable price.
