The Rock Island Armory XT .22 WMR Pistol is designed with rubber grips and a parkerized finish on the frame and slide. The semiautomatic pistol features fixed dovetail mounted front and rear sights, a 15-round magazine capacity and a skeletonized hammer and trigger with an adjustable over travel stop.
The system is simple and, as it turns out, quite reliable.
The frame of the XT 22 Magnum looks and feels almost identical to a full-sized 1911, and both guns share similar frame dimensions and angles.
Both the frame and the slide of the XT 22 Magnum are made of steel, and the added heft helps reduce recoil and gives the gun an unmistakably 1911 feel.
If you’re a fan of the John Browning design, you’ll like the way the Rock Island handles and operates, making this gun the ideal practice pistol for 1911 .45 shooters.
