Shorts do pose a bit of a challenge, but there are solutions out there for nearly all 22 firearms I've looked for. The simplest answer is any tube fed rifle. Personally, I use a Winchester 9422 from...

I just ordered the C.O.W.S. holster from Tandemkross. It's leather and they have a scope and non-scoped version. It's supposed to fit a suppressor too, which is the main reason I got it. Favorable...

I'm not the OP and I don't have arthritis, but I do have the Halo charging ring. First, I'm not a big fan of how they look, but they make the whole process of cycling the bolt much easier. I didn't...

There are certainly Mark IV models unaffected. For instance, my polymer lowered 22/45 Lite doesn't have this plug. Perhaps that is due to an inherent bit of flexibility in the material. I would think...

Great pics showing that crack! My firing pin had 0 rounds on it (at least from me) when I replaced it and I'm glad I did. I'm sure Ruger will get it sorted out eventually but I'd prefer not to have...

That's true. I have the Lite model and the instructions are fairly similar. A few differences with the mag ejector in the grip and the bolt catch, but should be close enough to work with. Actually,...
