Thanks for the feedback! I have heard some nasty stories about the 1911-22 slide cracking/exploding, which makes me a bit nervous. It looks like I can get a GSG 1911-22 for about $60 cheaper at my LGS.
i will try to get my hands on a local MKIII or Buckmark before making up my mind. I have only heard good things about them, but I want to make sure they feel good in my hands.
Still really liking the SR22.
