Product Description
ruger No other .22 LR pistol provides the feel of the classic 1911 pistol with the proven reliability and value of the Ruger Mark III pistols. The perfect trainer, it allows for low-cost practice and provides shooters with the familiar and preferred grip shape and feel of the famous 1911 .45 caliber pistol. The 22/45 Lite has aircraft-grade aluminum upper receiver with a black anodized finish and features a fluted barrel shroud, making the pistol extremely lightweight. The 4.4-inch stainless barrel sleeve is kept in place by a tension nut, ensuring the same accuracy and reliability of the Ruger 22/45 line. The barrel is threaded 1/2"-28 for popular muzzle accessories with a thread protector supplied. The 22/45's integral cylindrical bolt construction ensures permanent alignment and higher accuracy potential than conventional moving slide designs. The comfortable, precision-molded Zytel polymer grip frame has a serrated front strap and backstrap. The accurate sighting system features precision-adjustable rear and fixed front sights and a drilled and tapped receiver for the included Weaver-style scope base adapters. Ruger's patented loaded chamber indicator provides visual and tactile indication that the chamber is loaded and the magazine disconnect prevents discharge when the magazine has been removed. Other features include: a contoured ejection port, easy-to-grasp tapered bolt ears, and a conveniently located push-button magazine release on the left side of the frame.

        Comments about Ruger 22/45 Lite Handgun:

        when i played cowboys n indians as a kid i always dreamed of owning a nice pistol someday. this 22 is a dream come true. at first i was disappointed it is diff. from the 2012 model but when i received it and held it in my hand i like this one better. this one has wood grips instead of rubber; better. everything fits tight and i could find no faults in workmanship. i use it on float trips to supplement my larder with squirrels and for protection from the unexpected rabid raccoon or whatever. it's a pleasure to hold and shoot and i consider it a "work of art". thanks ruger!

          This gun is for me, but to my surprise...........my wife loves to fire this gun. She owns the Mark III Hunter and can't believe how light "my" gun is compared to hers.

              Comments about Ruger 22/45 Lite Handgun:

              My son recommended this for my wife because it is light and less intimidating to use than many pistols. I like it too. We have the non-blued yellowish aluminum finish model (From last year?). Some do not like the looks, I think it looks great. We have the rails mounted and occasionally use a red-dot sight, but the hard sights are adjustable and work as well. The pistol is great to use, and seems as accurate as anyone at our level would need.

              Taking it apart and reassembly takes some practice (there are several good You-Tube presentations). Don't loose the instruction booklet until you are comfortable reassembling.

              Specific problems:
              > The main spring fits too tight (this may work itself out);
              > The magazine interlock requires the magazine to be inserted to pull the trigger (and release spring tension); This apparently is a safety feature, but it causes mild frustration.
              > Getting the hammer and other internals properly positioned when reassembling is sometimes a challenge. Both the instruction booklet and many You-Tube videos cover getting this right.

              None of these are fatal, they just takes care and are somewhat annoying. I can get it right(I am fat fingered), then you can too. There are bushings available that removes the magazine interlock problem, but remember this is a SAFETY interlock, so be sure it's right for you.

                Will feed almost any kind of ammo.... but is slightly harder to take down to clean until you get used to it.
