colt/ walther 1911-22 questions

Hey,
I am brand new to the forum and this is my first post. I am considering buying the colt/ walther 1911-22 rail gun. I am just curious about how long the gun will last me and how customizable it is. Can you change the grips, hammer, trigger, etc. With a standard 1911? Is this gun worth the money?
Thanks, frank

All the parts you named can be interchanged with standard 1911 parts (subject to the usual caveat that NO 1911 part is truly "drop-in").

This might help you: http://ezine.m1911.org/showthread.php?t=86



Is it worth the money? That's a personal decision. I have shot it (the owner of the range where I shoot bought one for himself -- that should say something). I have also shot the Chiappa, which is a steamin' pile of [bleep] IMHO. If I didn't already have a .22 1911 I would seriously consider the Umarex. However, I had already built my own using a Ciener conversion and a no-name receiver I picked up as surplus, so the Umarex wasn't in the cards for me just because I don't need TWO .22 caliber 1911s.
