Suffering from a bit of insomnia, so why not do something useful?
This post is my first attempt to blog via the WordPress for Android app.
It was fairly easy to install. As for gun content, if all goes as planned there should be a photo of a Ruger 22/45 in this post.
It’s one of the first guns I ever bought, and recently I had some custom work done to it. The marketing gimmick for the 22/45 is that the grip is supposedly the same as on a 1911.
This is untrue. The angle may be the same, but the grip has never had the same feel as a government model. So I took a spare pair of 1911 grips that were sitting in a miscellaneous parts bin, and dropped the pistol off with a local smith, who shaved down the original plastic grip, installed some anchors for the grip screws, and then fit the 1911 grips to the pistol.
I also had him install a scope rail, allowing me to mount an Adco red dot scope on top. (I won the scope earlier this year at The Superstition Mountain Mystery 3 Gun match.)
This pistol has quickly become my favorite Steel Challenge gun, as well as my gun for training newbies to shoot a pistol.
