I was thinking about buying a model 10140. While shopping and researching I discovered the 22/45 Lite. It has a 4.5" Aluminum shrouded, threaded, SS barrel. It also has adjustable sights.
While it's probably not correct to call it the most accurate pistol I've ever owned, I can say that I can shoot this pistol more accurately than any I've ever owned.
The Bushnell TRS-25 Red Dot sight has a lot to do with that, I'm sure.
I most likely will not put a suppressor on it, but if I decide too, it's ready.
Since it has the threaded barrel, I have tried a couple gadgets...
Most recently it was a Levang Linear Compensator.
While not a suppressor, it does reduce the perceived sound by the shooter, a little. It does this by redirecting the sound wave. It's supposedly louder to someone down range.
I wouldn't begin to tell everyone that they need one, but it's inexpensive, and I like it.
The other gadget that I have is a Tactical Innovations fake suppressor. It doesn't reduce the sound at all, but looks kinda' neat. It was also inexpensive.
I'm not buying any more gadgets... at least not anytime soon.
P.S. Sorry about the multiple edits. I was trying to figure out the changes that Photobucket had made.
