Sig makes one. They sell for around $350 at Academy, and they had one other brand there also, don't remember who makes it though.

Sig Mosquito. Not a 1911 clone. But a great design. Great sights. Even has a de-cocker. Mixed but mostly favorable reviews. Apparently doesn't function well with cheap bulk ammo and needs hotter CCI ammo to break in. At least for a few hundred rounds. Check out the video at this link.
Academy has them for $329 currently.

I bought a Chiappa 1911 4 years ago. IMO it was a POS jamomatic. Recently traded it off. In 3 1/2 years and at least 1k rounds of ammo through it, never did quit jamming. Go for something better.

Kestral:

Don't buy a pot metal 1911 clone or any other pot metal gun. They are not as durable as an all steel or aluminum framed guns.

You can get a very nice CZ Kadet complete pistol. It is the CZ 75B pistol frame with a 22 upper. It is accurate and the trigger and feel are the same as the CZ 75B, which is indeed a tactical gun.

A better way is to buy the CZ 75B in 9mm or 40S&W and then buy the Kadet upper. That way you get a really good all steel tactical centerfire and a 22 tactical practice gun.

Kimber also makes a 22LR gun on a 1911 frame that you can get as a complete gun.

SIG Mosquito, Walther P22, Ruger SR22, and CZ Kadet all look and function like their centerfire counterparts. Except for the Kadet, they are smaller than their centerfire brothers, but it's still a relatively simple transition from one to the other.

Didn't mention it earlier, but I just purchased a Sig Mosquito this week. Just got home from from 1st time out w/it. Oiled it 1st and used CCI Mini Mags as recommended. 100 rds, absolutely flawless function. Just for fun tried some Winchester 333's. Would not cycle.
But IMO the SIG Mosquito is a great gun!

When I had a Mosquito, it ate Mini Mags and Remington Golden Bullets. Didn't particularly like anything else, and I don't like Remington rimfire ammo, so I only fed it Mini Mags.
If you have any on hand, try Federal Auto Mag ammo in it. It is my new favorite .22 ammo, but I don't have the Mosquito anymore.

If you're gonna get one you need to read the post about Senate Bill S150. The assault weapons ban. Many of these .22's mentioned, including the Sig and GSG have threaded barrels, or other to-be prohibited characteristics and will not be allowed if the Bill passes as is.

Won't they be grandfathered if you own the gun prior to bill passing?

Yes, but......

‘‘(t)(1) Beginning on the date that is 90 days after
20 the date of enactment of the Assault Weapons Ban of
21 2013, it shall be unlawful for any person who is not li
22 censed under this chapter to transfer a grandfathered
23 semiautomatic assault weapon to any other person who is
24 not licensed under this chapter, unless a licensed importer,
25 licensed manufacturer, or licensed dealer has first taken
26 custody of the grandfathered semiautomatic assault weap
1 on for the purpose of complying with subsection (s). Upon
2 taking custody of the grandfathered semiautomatic assault
3 weapon, the licensee shall comply with all requirements of
4 this chapter as if the licensee were transferring the grand
5 fathered semiautomatic assault weapon from the licensee’s

Which means the transfer must take place with an FFL middleman and associated fees and registration. This includes putting it in your will, gifting it, selling it, or any other transfer, including (presumably )throwing it in the trash. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if you got nailed for tossing it in the MS River, where it could be swallowed by a catfish and retrieved by some unsuspecting fisherman.

There are also storage restrictions on grandfathered weapons. See the bill at the link.

Also, keep in mind that there are other bills in work that would require registration and so on of all firearms.

This is a good time to start a national discussion on safety. We have laws in most states (if not every one) requiring a muffler on automobiles, yet we put an unreasonable burden on mufflers fitted for firearms. It's ludicrous! It's the exact same device!

At the very least silencers (suppressors) should be removed from the NFA provisions and put on the 4473, but they honestly should be wholly unregulated. It's not a firearm (except according to federal law :rolleyes:); it's a safety accessory.

A threaded barrel is a sign of an assault weapon? How about being a sign of being particularly handy? :cool:

I expect there will be a HEFTY fee (IE: TAX) as well.
