No other .22 LR pistol provides the feel of the classic 1911 pistol with the proven reliability and value of the Ruger 22/45 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 is set apart by its aluminum upper receiver, finished in a striking anodized gold. The receiver is made of aircraft-grade aluminum and includes serrated cuts that make the pistol extremely light. The Lite's 4.4-inch barrel sleeve is kept in place by a tension nut, ensuring the same great accuracy and relaibility you've come to extept from the 22/45 line. The comfortable, precision-molded zytel polymer grip frame has a serrated front strap and back strap. The Hogue black rubber grip panels are removeable and the upper receiver comes tapped for Weaver-style scope base adapters. This single-action pistol features a threaded barrel, a blade front sight with an adjustable rear notch, and a 2-position safety and includes two 10-round magazines, the original factory nylon zippered case, and the original factory box. Its grips, metal, and bore are all in excellent condition.
