Dayton, OH --(, OH, September 2009 – Yes you read right, a complete .22 caliber 1911 .45ACP clone pistol for under $300!

For a price under most 1911/.22 conversion units MKS Supply, Inc., is making available a fantastic buy for gun owners across the country.

“We feel this affordable, accurate, reliable pistol will be exceptionally received by those who want a 1911 ACP clone in the popular, affordable and fun .22 LR rimfire round.”

This is a full size clone of the standard 1911 .45 ACP. The weight is less than the original 1911 because both the slide and the frame are constructed of aluminum alloy. The lighter slide in particular also allows for reliable functioning it has much less mass for the recoil action of the diminutive .22LR round to function.

The internal components of the 1911-22 are all steel of course. The barrel is fixed to the frame to provide better accuracy. The fixed barrel also eliminates some not necessary parts found in the original .45 which was designed for full disassembly due to battlefield conditions.

Finish on the slide and frame is a tough flat black oxide finish. MKS Supply is also going to make available models with olive drab and desert tan powder coated slides.

Magazines are made of industrial-grade polymer and have been proven in extensive testing to be incredibly reliable as the polymer forming process ensures they are identical thus eliminating steel assembly and fit variances. And yes, MKS Supply will offer extra magazines at a no-gouge price around $20 MSRP.


  • Stocks (grips): Walnut with laser cut checkering.
  • Sights: Dovetail rear-drift adjustable sight (like original military sights).
  • Barrel length: 5-inches.
  • Physical dimensions: Same as the standard 1911.
  • Weight: 32-ounces (a standard military 1911 .45ACP is approximately 40-ounces).
  • Models: Standard black finish, olive drab finish, and desert tan finish.
  • Magazine capacity: 10-rounds. One magazine is included.
  • Warranty: Full-year parts and labor.
  • Manufacturer: Chiappa U.S.A., Dayton Ohio.

Consumers and dealers may gain more information by going to NOTE: The website is currently under construction and is expected to be up by about October 5th.

      I saw your ad for the 1911-22 in my last issue of American Rifleman magazine. I am very much interested in purchasing a 1911-22. I hold a valid pistol carry permit from the State of Ct. Please let me know how I should proceed in order to purchase this firearm. Thank you very much.

      I too am interested in acquiring a 1911-22. Please inform me as to how I can purchase one. I do a lot of recreational shooting and have always admired the 1911 platform but the 45 cal. is too expensive to shoot much at all.

      Purchased the 1911-22, it holds up to the NRA write-up. I fired 200 rds. from 3 different brand name ammo companys, no jamming, feed was smooth And my wife has no problem pulling the slide. Only comment is the trigger is really rough and shooting off hand is almost impossible….. Is it Possible for me to correct this..
