A perfect, low cost trainer for 1911 shooters, the Ruger® 22/45™ Target Semi-Auto Rimfire Pistol delivers superb performance with the grip, feel, and fire control locations of the classic 1911 design. The 22/45 utilizes Ruger’s proven internal cylindrical bolt and fixed barrel design, that provides a higher accuracy potential over designs with a moving slide by ensuring the pistol’s sights stay in permanent alignment. The 22/45 Target semi-automatic pistol comes with a precision rear target sight that’s fully adjustable for windage and elevation, and a vertical post, modified Patridge-style front sight; the sights are easy to see and allow for precise shooting at small targets. The top of the receiver is drilled and tapped for easy installation of the included Weaver®-style scope base if the shooter desires to use optical sights. The weight of the bull barrel aids to hold the pistol steady; though, with a lightweight Zytel® polymer grip frame, the 22/45 carries comfortably in a field holster. The grip frame features a serrated front strap and backstrap, and integral checkered panels that provide a sure hold in any type of environment. The 22/45 has several safety features, making it one of the safest handguns on the market. A loaded chamber indicator on the side of the receiver indicates when the chamber is loaded by sight or touch. A manual thumb safety locks the sear, while allowing the pistol to be loaded and unloaded when engaged. A magazine disconnect prevents the pistol from firing once the magazine is removed. And, an internal key lock renders the pistol totally inoperable. The Ruger 22/45 Target is a great Semi-Auto Rimfire Pistol for teaching shooters how to handle a handgun safely, small game hunting, and of course target shooting. Comes with two 10-round magazines. Made in USA.
