    Do the magazines drop free? That's one of the things that annoyed the shit out of me when I was doing my training, with the club 22/45's.

    Yeah they do drop and quite easily mate. However I wouldn't want to drop them if running around a stage as I don't think they would handle being stood on.

    I think that I have just learnt more about .22 pistols in this post than in the past 12 months.
    Thanks all. See you one the range.

    The Browning Buckmarks drop mags better than the rugers.

    I'm after something like this:

    Not as bad as I do with a glock but I am getting used to it. I struggle to find the dot at with any speed sometimes as well.

    The nice thing about the grip is you can put pretty much any 1911 grips on it you like - I did on my mk3 lite, I also put on a thumb rest to really lock in the hands for speed steel

    I'm keen to hit the speed steel scene more this year

    Being over gunned is under rated.

    Have you had any issues with it not locking open on empty?

    Do the Rugers need the higher velocity ammunition or standard velocity ok?
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded

    Not as yet. I run all sorts thru it. Cci subs go well.

    Bought a 555 pack of Winchester that has heaps of missfires. Struck well but no bang.

    LOL You're not wrong. Maybe they should market it as malfunction training ammo

    I just dropped money on a .22lr pistol, was gonna go for a Ruger but these popped up on Gunstuff new for dirt cheap.
    Walther sp22, $25 each for mags and threw a thread adaptor on it. Picatinny rail so gonna put a red dot on and shoot speed steel

    I would like to go but pretty sure I will be helping someone find a an animal that weekend.

    If plans change I will be there with bells on.
    My suppressor is pretty loud with HV ammo
