Ruger Introduces New 22/45 Lite

Ruger introduced the 22/45 Lite, a lightweight Ruger 22/45 pistol with a new aluminum upper receiver. Chambered in the popular .22 LR, the Ruger 22/45 Lite is accurate and reliable, making it the ideal lightweight rimfire pistol.

"The Ruger 22/45 Lite is an exciting new addition to the legendary 22/45 line of pistols," said Ruger President and CEO Mike Fifer. "It maintains the superb accuracy and reliability of the classic 22/45 pistols, but has a cool factor that can't be beat. It has a customized look without the customized price, and is exactly what our customers have been asking us to produce. The threaded barrel provides great accessory options and makes the Ruger 22/45 Lite a perfect package right out of the box," he concluded.

The Ruger 22/45 Lite upper receiver is made of aircraft-grade aluminum and features serrated cuts, giving the pistol a dramatic look and making it extremely lightweight at only 22.8 ounces. The 4.4-inch stainless steel barrel sleeve is held in place by a tension nut to ensure accuracy and features a factory 1/2-28 thread to accept popular muzzle accessories. The receiver is finished in a striking gold anodize and is drilled and tapped for Weaver-style scope base adapters (included free of charge) for easy mounting of optics. The comfortable, precision-molded Zytel polymer grip frame features replaceable Hogue black rubber grip panels that can be swapped out to customize the look of your Ruger 22/45 Lite pistol. The Ruger 22/45 Lite is the perfect outdoor companion and can be used for target shooting, plinking, small game hunting or competitive shooting.
