The Mark IV pistol disassembles and reassembles easily, allowing proper chamber to muzzle cleaning.
The 22/45 LITE utilizes a single-piece, aerospace-grade aluminum receiver with a ventilated barrel shroud that houses a tensioned stainless steel barrel. The aluminum receiver features an anodized, gold finish.
The muzzle is threaded at 1/2″-28 for attaching aftermarket suppressors, and it’s fitted with an aluminum thread protector.
The aluminum receiver coupled with a Zytel® polymer grip frame results in a super lightweight, full-sized pistol. A partridge-style, target front sight, a fully adjustable target rear sight, and a light, crisp trigger-pull allow shooters to obtain outstanding accuracy with the Mark IV LITE.
The top of the receiver has a Picatinny rail mount if the shooter desires to use optical sights. A manual, ambidextrous thumb safety locks the sear, while allowing the pistol to be loaded and unloaded when engaged, and a magazine disconnect prevents the pistol from firing once the magazine is removed.
The Mark IV model does not have a loaded chamber indicator on the side of the receiver or an internal key lock.
The Ruger 22/45 LITE is a great semi-auto rimfire pistol to carry when weight is at a premium, or for target shooting, and handgun training. Comes with two 10-round magazines.
