Ruger 22/45

The Ruger 22/45 lacks the ''odd'' grip angle of the MkI and MkII series - and has controls which approximate the 1911. This gun is used mainly for pin shooting and is ideal and reliable, as long as crud is cleaned out now and again. A very fun and economical plinker!

A Volquartsen extractor was fitted and gave a good improvement in extraction which could be initially occasionally problematic, and the compensator is really there just to add some weight for better control. The red dot is a great addition for more rapid target aquisition (and old eyes) ........ and has four reticles to choose from - two dot sizes, a "+" and also a dot within a concentric circle.

The ammunition finally settled on for cost to reliability factor was Federal ''Champion".
