1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    Question?

    Why is this called a 22/45?

    Does it fit and feel like you are shooting a .45 Model?

    Just wondering?

    Thanks!

    Hauxfan!

    Hauxfan,

    Yes, that is why it is called a 22/45.

    I believe the reason is because they changed the grip angle to simulate that of a 1911, as opposed to the angle of the traditional Ruger semi autos. I have one and it feeds any thing you care to feed it much better than other Rugers I've had in the past.

    The ergonomics of the 22/45 are designed to be the same as a 1911. I have the same gun in stainless. Replaced the stock trigger assembly with an aftermarket drop in made by Volquartsen. This gun will shoot circles around my S&W Model 41.

    Look at the picture at the top of this thread. The owner's manual shows two distinctly different guns. The gun on top is a standard Mark III and the gun on the bottom is the Mark III 22/45. Notice the difference in the angle of the grip.

    I thought it was named that way because it took 22 minutes to take apart and 45 minutes to put back together. Far more difficult than it needs to be to service.
