PRESCOTT, Ariz.--(Ammoland.com)- Another Davidson’s Exclusive firearm resulting from a strong relationship with one of America’s most trusted manufacturers, Ruger, has hit the shelves. Davidson’s presents its new Exclusive, the Red Anodized Ruger 22/45 Lite Rimfire Pistol.
Largely inspired by the traditional 1911, the Ruger 22/45 Lite is a modernized pistol that is highly customizable and well-suited for the range. The 22/45 Lite is a lightweight version of the standard 22/45 with a ventilated aluminum upper receiver.
The Lite is nearly ten ounces lighter than the standard 22/45 weighing in at only 22.73oz compared to 32oz. Along with its picatinny rail, threaded muzzle for accessory additions, and 1911-sized interchangeable grip panels, the 22/45 Lite is available in 3 finishes for ultimate customization. The 22/45 Lite is available in Blue Anodized, Cobalt Anodized, and now exclusively from Davidson’s, Red Anodized.
The 22/45 Lite is shockingly similar to the classic 1911 with the magazine release, bolt catch, and manual safety all being located in the same position. The 22/45 Lite also comes equipped with a loaded chamber indicator. Though this feature is not meant to replace user safety checks, it is a useful visual cue for second measure.
Davidson’s Vice President of Sales Matt Nicholson said, “Ruger has enjoyed immense success with the 22/45 Lite. It’s a great platform for customization and we’re thrilled to once again partner with Ruger, especially on our latest Exclusive. Grab them while you can as these pistols are of a special edition run and we’re confident of their popularity with firearms enthusiasts.”
