I believe they would make a good pair.

For now I will have to settle with the MK lll
I'd like to get a Takedown, I remember checking them out in a Christmas flyer for $289 (November), I think it was Cabelas...I see them now for $500, $600 and even one yesterday for $700.

If i buy a Ruger 22 pistol it's going to be going to be a Mark III Competition or Target.

Any comments about the SR22? I test shot one and loved it. It's very light weight and honestly I wasn't a big fan of the Mark II or III. Not to say they aren't good guns, just prefer the SR22.

How well would the 22/45 lite conceal as a CCW?

Getting Threads Put on the Muzzle of a Pistol is a PITA, usually - Moving or removing the Front Sight, Threading, and so on - You can expect to spend over $150 from a Friendly Gunsmith, If you can find one that will even do the job.

So, Around $250 for the Gun, plus $150 for the Threads (And a Protector) avoids the misery of sending the barrel off, mailing both ways, the Wait, and Worry if the Threading Job Wrecked the barrel, or is not Co-Axial.....The Angst of taking that First Silenced shot, hoping against Hope that the Silencer survives it undamaged....

It is set up to be a GREAT Host for a Suppressor! Looks like a Small Can, Like a Gemtech Outback IID, would still allow you to use the Sights! That is a Big Deal!

I am SORELY Tempted, especially for the Black Model. Now, How to Convince SWMBO - She'll probably "Claim" it when She gets to shoot it with the Can on it! Great - Another Gun I get to Buy, Feed, maintain, and Clean, without getting to shoot it! It sure would be fun! I'll probably get tasked with disposing of the cats found ventilated under the Bird-feeder, too!

I shot one with & without a Silencerco Sparrow suppressor.
The existing sights worked perfectly in clearing the can.
Velocities & accuracy were both roughly equal with & without.

What sarge said. 1st, relatively speaking it's very tough to conceal. Second, it's a .22 lr caliber. Heck, you could go mouse gun in a Beretta tomcat or something if you wanted a .22 lr for CCW. However, I do NOT recommend .22LR for CCW. A Ruger LCP, LC9 or LCR would be a far better choice, IMO, if you wanted a Ruger for CCW.

Posting not quite two years later, does anyone have year(s)-long experience with the 22/45 lite?

My Ruger Mark II was just sold on GunBroker as I'm looking for a lighter pistol option for back-packing, travel, trunk gun, hunting and as a possible silencer host in the future. The .22/45 Lite with top rail seems like my best option at this point. Anyone have any experience with this pistol they would care to share? Reliable? Accurate? Any trouble?

to filthy and will: have you considered the ruger sr22? it is simple, handy, reliable. my brother has a 22/45 and we both agree that the sr22 is a better out-of-the-box utility piece. you can ccw a sr22, if you wish to or must.
to burnt: you will love the ruger blackhawk 357/38/9mm. follow up this purchase with a ruger single six 22lr/wmr. your grown grandchildren will remember you fondly.

It helps to get a hammer bushing from Tandomkross and get rid of the magazine disconnect. That way you don't have to keep putting the mag in and out to disassemble the firearm. I also installed a firing pin, extractor, and a LCI filler plate all from Tandomkross. They make excellent products. I am very happy with them.

I have one, shoots just as reliable as my MK II's just lighter. Nice little guns if you are fond of the 22LR.
