Just received this message from Ruger -- it's their latest .22, and it's based on the 22/45. It's called the 22/45 Lite, and it looks pretty cool! Ya know ya want one!!!
It is definitely a different feel with the much lighter sleeved aluminum barrel. I have a Tactical Solutions barrel on a Buckmark, and I like it a lot. Very fast. It points a bit high for me, but that's a grip thing, nothing to do with the barrel. It has a different Red Dot on it now.aluminum barrel with a sleeve... don't think I'd like the feel.
