    Pretty hideous in my opinion, but some may like it. I picked up a 22/45 target model a week ago and put about 400 rounds down range so far. No question about it, it's a sweet shooter!

    After looking further the only difference is a lightweight aluminum upper. You can already get the LLV upper from Volquartsen if weight reduction is what you're after. Thanks for posting this though, interesting indeed.

    Wow, I'm reading the reactions and thinking "How bad can it be?".

    Then I looked. :wow:

    Dang. :shocked:

    Gold anodized upper? Seriously? :faint:

    Well, at least the grips are replaceable -- so you can get the mother-of-pearl scales to REALLY set that baby apart from the other range toys! :rofl:

    Uh....I kinda like it. The cutouts/serrations are to reduce weight and it comes with a threaded muzzle. Kinda cool IMO. I would like one.

  7. With a polymer frame and 10 oz's lighter than the next lightest 22/45, and a per-threaded barrel, it's kinda neat. I agree the serrations look odd, and the gold is hideous.

    Interesting that the receiver and barrel are one piece.
     
  9. Maybe it will become a collectors item like the Ruger Hawkeye handgun.
     
  10. It is ugly, but it will be an excellent gun for rimfire Steel Challenge shooters. Many buy the TacSol top end and add it to their MKII/III's to reduce weight. This entire gun will retail for little more than the TacSol tope end price. They will sell a butt load of these.

    It's the Ruger version of the PacLite, I think.

    That sort of explains why it looks so loud. I'm not sure about the looks, but that looks like an adjustable sight with a threaded barrel so that's cool.

    A threaded 22/45 has been on my list for a while, I might end up with one of these. BLING BLANG MOTHER....

    Ruger has PLENTY of people waiting for guns they alreadymake so why don't they concentrate on making them instead of coming out with a "new" gun every other month.:dunno:

    I agree the gold looks dumb. A hard anodized gray finish would look much nicer and be more durable.

    The sights look cocked to the right, maybe just an illusion. Either way it's fugly.
