Southport, CT –-(Ammoland.com)- Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE: RGR) is proud to introduce the Ruger 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 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.
