This small handgun is very affordable and yet great for first time owners, or even novice target shooting practitioners.
The Rimfire Target 1911 chamber is designated for high velocity ammunition. These gun chambers are made to the same specifications as their centerfire counterparts, so you can get a conversion kit to modify this gun for centerfire primers. The total size is just over five inches high and the weight is extremely light with the magazine empty. The ten-round magazine doesn’t contribute much weight when loaded, and the gun is almost nine inches long from tip to grip.
The frame and slide are both composed light-weight aluminum, while the barrel is solid, machined steel.
This is an appropriate pistol for younger, first time users and the cost is typically under $1,000 in most stores and catalogs.
