Don't tell my wife

Recommended Posts

My wife wanted me to build her a .22 with a red dot and it had to be "pretty". Back in August I started slowly picking up parts for "her" gun and we brought home a 22/45 Lite yesterday. I wanted a steel challenge open gun so I bought what I wanted and threw some pink grips on it.

We are going to sight it in tomorrow and shoot it at the local monthly bowling pin shoot on Saturday. Thats right, I'm gonna shoot the pink gun too.

Build Specs:

- Sam Lam bushing

- LCI filler/delete

- VZ Aztec grips in pink with stainless grip screws

- VQ Stainless target trigger

- VQ extended safety

- VQ extractor

- Slingshot mod

- Bjtraz slide racker, anodized black

- 90* C-More mount, anodized black

- C-More slide ride red dot (2 moa)

- Waiting on a ZRTS stainless compensator (coated black)

I love the 90* mount as it gets the lens low enough to use the iron sights through the glass.

Also pictured is a 22/45 RP with VZ Alien grips in green canvas with a Sam Lam bushing and Tac-Sol threaded and fluted Pac-Lite. My wife and I are giving the green gun to my cousin next week as a birthday/Christmas/graduation present. Needless to say he is an awesome kid and we think a lot of him. I hope he hears back from West Point soon with an acceptance letter.

Funny, i did the same thing... My gf really liked how a 1911 fit her, so i bought one with a tac sol .22 kit, threw some pink vz grips on it and done. She shoots it in .22 and i shoot it in 9mm for ipsc and steel, pink grips and all

Hey , it's still a good lookin gun.

How much of the bulk weight in the " lite " version is saved in the frame? is it a polymer or aluminum?

No weight savings in the frame, it's polymer.
