Manufacturer’s Description

The Ruger 22/45 Threaded Barrel pistol allows for low-cost practice and provides shooters with the familiar and preferred grip shape and feel of the 1911-style .45 ACP caliber pistol. In addition to the identical grip angles, the 22/45 features the same fire control locations (manual safeties, magazine releases and bolt hold-opens) as the 1911.

The Threaded Barrel is available with a 4.5″ blued, threaded barrel. The gun is built on a precision-molded Zytel polymer grip frame with a serrated front strap and a checkered back strap for a comfortable, non-slip hold. The sighting systems available include either fixed front and rear sights, or no sights. You can get it with or without picatinny rails (pictured).

The manual safety positively locks the sear when applied. The pistol also features an unobtrusive internal lock that locks the safety in the safe position and allows you to safely secure the firearm when not in use. The magazine disconnect prevents discharge when the magazine has been removed, and the patented loaded chamber indicator provide visual and tactile indication the chamber is loaded.

The internal cylindrical bolt construction ensures permanent alignment and high accuracy potential. The pistol also features a contoured ejection port, easy-to-grasp tapered bolt ears, a conveniently located push-button magazine release on the left side of the frame, two magazines, an external locking device and a hard plastic case.

    @ Jim: No, it’s chambered for .22 LR only.

    I had one of these a few years ago and sold it and then replaced it with a new one. Did not know until a got the owners manual in front of me that Ruger does not recommend “hyper” ammo in this gun. They tell you to use Regular or high velocity ammo only on page 14 of the manual. I was disapointed and told Ruger I was but then again “Hyper” ammo is not as accurate anyhow so…
    Dis-assembly and re-assembly is a chore but guys tell me they only clean theirs every 1000 rounds. Very fun to shoot and my scope makes it on target every shot.
