My latest addition to my collection.
You just bought one of the next guns on my list! Let me know what you think.
I second that. I want the 22/45 with the threaded barrel. Plus I like there is a large aftermarket selection of parts for these.
Nice!!! I've been looking at getting a dedicated .22LR but don't know if i want a 22/45 or go expensive with a S&W Mod 41.
I actually replaced a 22/45 with this. I just wasn't a huge fan of the poly frame on it. I like the fact that I can replace the grips on this. It just feels like a higher quality gun. I assume it will fire the same being the barrel and receiver are the same, though the grip is different. Can't wait to take it to the range after I give it a cleaning. I was also happy to get it blued. The 22/45 I replaced was stainless/black. I do want to get another 22/45 though. I want a threaded barrel as well. I'm looking at the Lite, just for that reason. I'm hoping they release it another color though. I'm not feeling the gold.
I was typing that when you posted Don. I know the feeling. I REALLY want a model 41 as well. I see no reason not to have both. : )
is that an amphibian?
@nyurbanarcher nah, I think it's just a Mark III 5 1/2" bull bbl. target model. Two reasons, he mentioned the bbl & receiver being same as 22/45 & b/c I think the amphibian is a single tube for the receiver & the outside tube of the suppresor. I think the MkII is about perfect except for the effort required to field strip it. OF course if you have the fund you can step up into apparent perfection with a S&W Model 41.
I had a Mark II with the 10 inch bull barrel. Wish I still had it.
The MK series are just rock-solid. I've only had my 22/45 since November, but it's already had a few thousand rounds through it with not one single hiccup.
Love my 22/45. That thing can hold a tighter group than I can.
Yep, @jbrwoky hit it right on the head. Just a standard target Mk III.
