    Cocking serrations on a non-moving part are odd.
    But maybe it is to save weight? That's why they call it "lite"?

    I always thought the cocking serrations were strange.

    There's no need for them.

    Probably a combo of weight savings and cosmetics. Nothing wrong at all. They also undercut the barrel shroud on the bottom.

    Nice 22's.

    They forgot to engrave their typical 134 word legal disclaimed on the side of the barrel?

    Wonder if the barrel is threaded, and that's a thread cover on the front?

    Yes the barrel is threaded. Yes the warnings are on the other side. The pistol is canted for the picture which makes the sight look crooked. The serrations are to make it lighter. Yes the anodizing is ugly but can be fixed with a can of spay paint :whistling:

    I already have 2 22/45's that I love, one has an optic, the other has fiber optic front with adjustable rear sight. Both threaded since I love to shoot suppressed. But part of me still wants to get this one. Not a huge fan of the color also, but just the overall idea, is good. Lots of people spend 300+ for a pac-lite upper (and still have to have a donor lower), and this basically gives you that kinda upper for ~400 bucks.

    The suction cup "dart" sticking out of the muzzle?

    Is the trigger made of poly? I don't think it's a bad looking gun. Just a little pimped out. Sure wouldn't trade my 22/45 RP target for one of those. I believe it's weight is part of what make sit so accurate.

    Yes, the gun is fugly, however it's a good lightweight alternative to the Ruger SR22. Some of us prefer the tried-n-trued design of the Mk-series pistols.

    Yes, it's threaded to accommodate a suppressor. Don

    The rear sight is tilted toward viewer (right).

    Man, that rear sight looks A LOT more canted than the pistol appears to be!

    To me, nothing else really looks technically wrong........well, other than serrations, coloring.....these things might not look that appealing, but are certainly intentional.

    On second thought........it looks like the picture might be of two separate photos shopped together......... one of frame, which looks straight......the other of the barrel/receiver, which looks canted........?
