Rock Island 1911 Micromag .22 TCM / 9mm

Randy from GunsForSale.com writes that this is a brand new 1911-style autoloader
chambered in the new .22 TCM caliber. Rock Island Armory
cartridge designer Fred Craig said the proprietary .223-based
pistol caliber round sends a 40 grain jacketed hollow point
bullet downrange at 2100 feet per second. The goal was to
make a 1911-type pistol “with the same weight, but double the
firepower and delivering more foot pounds of energy.

    I'm interested. Not very, but a little. I agree with the poet who lacks sunshine, it looks like the 1911 version of the FN 5.7

    Kudos to them for introducing it as a re-barreled RIA pistol instead of a super pricy custom job. This way Joe Citizen who thinks it's neat can actually afford one and they can make a killing on ammo.

    "Sounds like someone found a way to get FN 5.7 performance from a 1911"

    That is what I was thinking initially.

    Well if you were going to spend $300 on a .22 LR 1911, I figure hand-loaded .22 TCM might be a tad more interesting.

    for $ 600, you get to also shoot 9mm

    I was actually going to spend $450 on the STI .22 Target Conversion Kit, but then I saw the light and bought a Ruger 22/45 instead :jester:

    The more I think about it, the more I like it, two calibers.
    Downloaded somewhat it could prove to be a versatile varminter, maybe with a 6 or 7 inch barrel.
