Fired a couple hundreds of rounds today, and it worked great.
Cool. I have the gold colored version and like it. Im jelous that your has a fiber optic sights.
I bought the sights from brownells.com , item 962-000-094WB. Very easy to install and work much better than the original. Any good compact scope for the pistol?
It cost me 2x this to have close to the same pistol before these came out. A Vorquartson frame and a Paclite upper. No actual Ruger parts except for a polished/fitted bolt.
Plus a Fastfire red dot up top, Element II suppressor. Sure is a lot of fun, and cheap to shoot. Probably slightly lighter than the Ruger model, lighter target trigger but I would have been happy to wait for one of these if I knew they were coming. Once you add in the 'extras' it is a $1,500 .22 pistol.
I just sent in ATF Form 4 for a GemTech Outback-IID suppressor. It may take up to 6 months according to others' experiences.
Have been thinking I need one of these.
Its my favorite 22lr threaded pistol. Ive had the GSG 1911 threaded, ruger Mk III, walther p22 threaded, Berreta 21a threaded. My favorite for feel, reliabilty, accuracy and weight is the ruger 22/45 lite. Esspecially when using a silencer. The 22/45 lite is a perfect host dor silencers and is balanced beautfully. To each their own, but I found a winner with the 22/45 lite.
I paied $200 to thread a beretta 21a, which may be a waste since I have Ruger 22/45 LITE now.
Sorry but that was a waste. I bought a Berreta 21a and it came threaded from a smith shop. The trigger is bad. Sights are small, poor accuracy, and any silencer you put in front of it makes sights impossible to use. Use my experience and stick with the 22/45 lite. I paid $360 from Northwest Armory and couldn't be happier with it. Of course adding on goodies such as a red dot and trigger kit would be fun, but no means necessary.
Added a BSA Edge 2X scope, and still waiting for surpressor. The scope somehow and I can still use the fiber sights through the mount openning.
Here's mine, Taking her out for the first time in a couple of weeks. Can't wait to see how she runs.
Nice, and this is mine
Cool! Do your mags drop free?
Yes, both of them drop free, after some rounds. The bolt ears are rough and I have to wear gloves.
Ok. So where do I get one of these?
I had one when they first came out and it didn't do much for me. I have owned the p22, sr22, m&P 22, 22/45 lite and mosqito. None of them gave me much excitement. I guess I am just not a 22lr pistol kind of person but I always seem to be drawn to them...lol...go figure. :huh:
I got mine at the Gun Broker in Tigard. Gary
What is a ball park price OTD? Would you say <$400???
I paid $360 at Northwest Armoury last fall/winter time.
Is it a perfect gun? No its not inteded to be but if you have accesories and want a fun shooter this should be on top of the list for the money.
Not any more. I got mine at gun broker tigard the day before the election for $360. A few days later they were $450(or something near. Last I heard they were going for close to $500.
