22/45 lite

Postby Polstery » Wed Apr 25, 2012 10:31 am

New member with my first post, any body else look at and feel the new 22/45 lite and think it feels kind of cheap. I went to hoffmans and had it my hand but just could not bring myself to buy it.

No experience with that gun. But welcome to the forum.

I know I'm probably alone, but I love the look of that gun. And the anodized barrel has opportunity for a lot of different colors. I would expect Talo to have several different versions.

Too damn many on the wish list, though. I'm afraid this one will have to wait.

I like that the Lite is built on the 22/45 frame with change-able grip panels. This could make for some interesting combos

Your not along I love the looks of the gun, but it feel almost too lite and very plasticky, like it's not going to hold up very long. I had the money in my pocket ready to buy. If it just felt a little more like my gsg 1911/22 I would have bought it it a sec.

Well the Glocks are mostly plastic aka tuperware guns and they hold up fine and people love them so plastic shouldn't be a issue

I'm not saying plastic is bad, glock plastic is great and feels strong, the ruger plastic looks and feels brittle like cheap Chinese stuff. If you haven't felt the gun you will not know what I'm talking about. More than half my guns are plastic so I consider myself somewhat of an expert. LOL

22/45 lite

Postby joesi » Mon Feb 25, 2013 10:26 pm

i just picked one up and i must say i really like the feel of it. i have a smith 22a-1 two ruger single sixes that i take out hunting with me and when loaded and out all day they get heavy! the main reason i like this 22/45 is its light enough for all day carry. and i think ruger makes a decent weapon. i have five of them.
